“ Brand: Accessorize / Type: Clutch Bag „
I love bags like this, small enough for an evening out but large enough to get everything in. I bought the Silver Bow Clutch Bag for £25.00 from Accessorize. Its also available on their website www.accessorize.com.
The bag is 24 cm'sx13cm's and has a flap over top which fastens with a magnetic popper. It has quite a firm body but is covered with a very soft slightly padded material. Although sold as a silver bag I personally think its a cross between silver and a metallic grey. It has almost a dark grey fleck in the colour which stops it being a bright silver to more of a dark metal grey colour.
The bag also has a long 110cm's chain strap giving you the option of using it as a clutch or shoulder bag. This chain is not detachable but tucks away nicely inside the bag when not in use. There is one small pocket in the bag which is handy for little bits and pieces.
The thing that I really like about this bag though is the oversized bow on the front. There is a band of material stitched diagonally across the front of the bag. This forms part of a large gathered bow. This is slightly wider than the actual bag and is stitched on diagonally. This simple bow takes the bag from plain to quite eye-catching. It gives it a dressy girly feel.
The last time I used this bag was for a party, it was ideal for an occasion like this. It held all my bits and pieces and as its quite a firm bag it kept its shape. On this occasion I also found the chain handle useful. I was standing most of the evening and eating a buffet whilst having a clutch bag isn't always easy, so it was nice to be able to just pull the chain handle out and pop the bag on my shoulder. This handle is also great when popping to the ladies. I hate putting my bag on the floor so having a handle means you can hang your bag up.
In conclusion I would definitely recommend this little bag, its more of an evening or occasion bag. Its big enough for all your things, mobile, perfume etc and is very pretty and feminine. I will get lots of use from this bag, evenings out and days at the races making the £25.00 I paid for it very good value for money.
