I have this joke, that the smaller the person, the larger the bag—or luggage, in the case of jet-setting. Save for tall, lovely Becca, most of my friends are petite, yet all carry enormous handbags. When we travel on a girls getaway, we all over-pack, yet the most petite person in the room always undoubtedly arrives with the biggest bag. This is often me, or often my friend Steph.
In terms of handbags, I am a slave to the large it-bag, toting around a Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, or YSL bag that is startlingly heavy to anyone who picks it up. Like a well-prepared soccer mom, my handbag contains everything I’d need for the day: keys, iPhone, Blackberry, wallet, checkbook, business card case, chapstick, my signature pink lipstick, hand sanitizer, cell phone sanitizer wipes, Kiehls hand lotion, a mini-hairbrush, Band-Aids, Tide-to-go, and likely some lollipops. Seriously.
Lately, I’ve realized a lack of clutches and fun, small, girl-on-the-town handbags in my closet to mix-and-match for a night out, or merely to simplify and take the weight off (quite literally) when I leave the house.
GiGi New York, a line of leather clutches in fun prints and colors at affordable prices, solves this problem. GiGi’s over-sized Uber clutch is the perfect size for everything you’ll need to carry—cards, phone, lipstick and the like—and it’s stylish and chic. It can also double as an iPad case. It fits my regular iPad so it will also fit the mini and any e-readers you Kindle-a-holics may have.
The clutch comes in the top colors of the season: mint, coral, sunshine yellow, and a rich cobalt, as well as reliable mainstays like sand, black, and white.
The ladies over at GiGi mailed Becca a lovely yellow clutch and me a mint one. We’re giving away a third Uber clutch to a lucky lady in the color of her choice. Because, we lusted after ‘em, we got ‘em, and now it’s another Bitch’s turn.
Those of you who don’t win the clutch can still order online and get a special Bitches Who Brunch discount of 20% with the code “BRUNCH.” The clutches are normally priced at $125 a piece, and code is valid until April 15.
Happy accessorizing, you stylish Bitches.
