Who’s checking out for the long weekend? (Both hands raised over here!) Need a great bag to take you from planes to trains to automobiles and back again? Not to mention lunches, brunches, evening barbecues, and surfside cocktails? This is it.
The Snob Essentials clutch is majorly versatile: Key details include a convertible crossbody strap, optional wristlet strap, and a slip pocket for your cellphone on the backside. It happily fits lip gloss, six credit cards, cash, and anything else you require for a weekend of fun in the sun (I am not judging). And it opens to reveal a mirror on the interior flap, which allows you to discreetly perform makeup checks at the table.
I have the clutch in black, red lizard, and gray croc and use mine as a wallet inside bigger totes, which confused the boy to no end when he was snooping around looking for the candy I always have in my bags. “Why do you have a bag inside a bag? Why do you need SO MANY BAGS?” Clearly, he has much more training to do.
Then I’ll whip it out to use as crossbody clutch when I don’t want the bulk of a handbag. Like when I arrive at hotels, I dump my tote in the room and use this to do my shopping, sightseeing, and poolside relaxing. Speaking of which, it’s time to get on that, stat. $68 on HSN.com.
Pair with: A tote like Givenchy’s roomy leather bag, in clean white nappa topped with black handles and crisp prismatic accents, is just the thing to toss my clutch into. On Luisa via Roma for $1,090.
