The Handy Clutch.

We all know, I’m no fashion expert. I keep to my same old greys and blacks, jeans and jumpers. But I want to branch out with my style and add something to this classic style. Maybe with a clutch bag?

Then I was approached by KoKo Couture asking if I’d like to check out one of their bags. Which of course I said yes to. Then had the task of trying to choose one out of so so many amazing designs. Trust me it was not easy. But finally I went for their Abby bag in black.

Now you may be thinking ‘Em, it’s just a bag what’s so daring about that?!’ this, my friends, is a clutch. Okay for some it may not be a big thing but I’ve never delved into this world before. It was all too sophisticated for me I really didn’t think I’d suit it. But when I was asked I thought I’d give it a go and now, having it here and actually taking it out with me. I think I’ve got a clutch on things. (Okay no more puns).

So I’ll tell you a little about the bag itself first. The bag is approximately 19cm in height, 32cm in width and 12cm in depth, so the perfect size really for any occasion! It come sin black, grey or tan (they all looked so nice it was so hard to choose! But I went with black as that’s the easiest colour to have with anything really) and is a faux leather with a tastle, which, although isn’t directly detachable, if you desired to take it off you can easily undo the jump ring to put in on and off as you wished.

When looking on the website, it did show there were two hoops to put a longer strap on, which the website suggested it came with. But when I received the bag it didn’t have either, only the wrist strap. Which wasn’t a problem to me, the bag is still so lovely and amazing quality, I just feel I need to state this in case someone was to go check it out and expect a longer strap as well. But the bag itself feels amazing, the quality is so so good and it’s just the perfect clutch for every occasion.

As we are creeping up to the festive season, it is also the perfect present whether it be a child, friend, partner, sibling – anything. As it’s only £19. And if you were to hold this bag and feel the quality, you’d be shocked at how cheap that is, honestly. And speaking of Christmas. It’s perfect for all the parties and events you may be going too. And of course the New Year. How can you argue with that?

It’s all well and good me telling you about this bag with sass permeated throughout. But for some it may not be enough. Thus I have embraces my inner fashion guru and shown you my way of wearing it. Because honestly I love the look it gives. So please excuse my poor effort of posing (it’s not my most natural talent), and take a look at some style inspiration for this bag.

In case you were wondering, my jumpers from Primark, as is the leather jacket, my jeans are from New Look and my boots are from H&M.

I hope you liked this rather alternative post for me. But I honestly think this is the perfect clutch for all occasions. Whether it be clubbing, party, wedding or you just want to rock some classy street style like I have attempted here.

Once again thank you to KoKo Coture for letting me review this lovely bag for them. And you should definitely go check out their website (and bomb Instagran account).

Until next time,

Em x

    Beautiful once again!!

    I also use a clutch purse. I can’t use a normal purse, I’ve tried different styles: medium to as small as you can get, but when my mom gave a clutch she wasn’t even using, I stared to realize this was my kind of bag! I literally have enough stuff to store in it and I can hold on across my ankle when I go out. It’s very handy! 🙂
