I. Love. This. Clutch. It's a BIT bigger than I would normally use for a clutch (about a foot wide) but that's totally okay because it's gorgeous! This was handmade by Katie, a Midwestern girl that loves to bake, sew and knit. She grew up with a very crafty mother who inspired her to create things by hand. Like me, she's spent her adult life sitting in a cubicle and needed a creative outlet. So she created a small business called Barry's Farm, selling handmade laptop sleeves. She was lucky and was able to leave her soul-sucking job (my words, but I know what it's like!) and start This Loves That where she can use her creative skills for a living. This clutch is described as "the perfect marriage of size and style, but also large enough to hold your kindle or iPad!" I was a little weary about the size, UNTIL I read that last sentence. They're totally right, it will definitely hold my little Nook! So now I'm happy with the size and the colors were MADE FOR ME. I love the chevron pattern and the brown leather contrast. Even the mustard yellow zipper is the perfect pop of color! I'm also incredibly impressed with the quality of the clutch. The stitching and design details look so professional and well done. I love that it snaps folded down.
In short: there's nothing I don't love about this!
I've included a close-up of the patterns and detail to show how pretty this really is!
