Marc by Marc Jacobs Violet Clutch, Handbag of the Day
The first thing to note about this beautiful clutch is that it features the same type of tie that the larger Tie Tasha bag did, which looks much improved on a smaller scale. Marc Jacob's Violet Clutch is only 10.5" x 5.5" x 1.5" and is made of soft, brown leather. It can be carried directly in-hand or secured around a wrist with the attached strap. The brass-studded top flap is secured with a small magnetic snap, and also conceals a large zippered pocket on the front of the clutch. Overall, it looks remarkably practical for a small bag and the wrist strap is a nice touch for when you don't want to carry a shoulder bag but still need to have your hands free. Price: $228.
