Every once in a while I like to look through my handbags and see what I still like, what I want to get rid of and – most importantly – what I still need to get. As wedding season is upon us I noticed that I don’t have a good clutch for social events. After hours of online research I came across the Gigi New York Clutch and absolutely fell in love with it. I thought I’d share my thoughts on it with you in case you’re in the market for a new clutch!
The brand sells several different clutches and I ended up going with the All in One Bag in the color stone. I was debating between that one and the Uber Clutch – yes, like the car app – because that one is bigger. However after thinking about the purpose of why I was buying a clutch in the first place, I realized I wouldn’t want to carry a huge clutch on my arm at a wedding or social event. I don’t wear clutches on a regular basis and when I do, chances are I’m not packing my whole life up in it.
The clutch comes in a pebble grain leather and an embossed python leather. Now I’m usually not one to go for a python leather look but I loved the design online and thought it was very tasteful without being too cheap looking. At the time when I ordered it they were offering free personalization so I thought why not? The bag arrived protected in a box with a white dust bag. I instantly noticed the softness of the leather and that it was well made. The clutch has a soft cream fabric on the inside and you can tell from the stitching that it’s very good quality.
Since I’ve received it in the mail I’ve worn it to every wedding, graduation or cocktail event. This bag has become my go-to and I’m so happy with it. The neutral stone color works with a lot of different outfits and I know I’m going to get great use out of it over the years. I especially love that the bag isn’t stiff because it makes it so much easier putting my phone, sunglasses and other bits and pieces in it. It has one interior pocket that is wide enough for my credit card, ID, a bit of cash and a pocket mirror. The size works out great for me as I can fit everything I need without feeling like I have to arrange anything in a certain way. Looking back on the Uber clutch I think that it would have looked awkward at a cocktail party because it is significantly larger. However if I used a clutch as my everyday bag, the Uber would probably be a better fit. Overall I’m very happy with my purchase and impressed with the brand.
That was my Gigi New York Clutch review! Have you heard of this brand before?
