Carrying the J.Crew Havana Clutch is a bit like toting a puppy about - it's so cute, everyone wants to see it. Last Saturday night at dinner, our table was visited by every single hostess and waitress in the restaurant, as the word got around that they had to check out my bag. I was happy to be able to tell them that even though I picked it up last year, it's back again this season.
Light, easy to carry, fits a lipstick and your cellphone, works perfectly with just about every sundress and pair of white jeans in your closet... But the best part is that it's like carrying summer: riding to the beach on a bike with a woven basket and opening a picnic hamper packed with lobster rolls.
No sand required.
What's your favorite summer staple?
