Zippered Pouches & Clutches

On first glance these clutches look like over-sized pencil cases or bank deposit wallets – but ah, isn’t that their charm?  I’m sort of loving the grown up schoolgirl look (especially when it doesn’t involve knee high socks).

There are three versions of the simple zippered bag, priced from high to low:  Céline ($$$), Comme des Garçons ($$), or American Apparel ($).  Because I love a good bargain, and also because I don’t have a strong history with clutches, I’m leaning towards the Medium Leather Carry-all Pouch from American Apparel, $45 … in yellow (camel may be practical, but yellow is awesome).
