CLUTCH SHOT Paris Fashion Week Street Style

Street style at the fashion week shows has gotten as popular as the runway shows themselves it seems; and some of my favorite images coming off the byway are the vignette shots. Something about the textures, colors, hardware, bling…all in one. And how it’s anonymous, so you can almost see yourself strutting your own stuff in that shot, right? Here are a few featured prominently in my own fantasies…

What a difference a day bag makes.

Do you have a go-to statement or staple piece in your closet?

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. Great images! I have an Alexander Wang box clutch and a bright pink Louis Vuitton that I love equally and bring out often!

  2. Oh yes!!! I love all of these bags… colorful and statement like! Of course those beautiful jackets, furs and feathers help plenty too!

  3. I mean…I can’t get over everything in that first picture. Arghghg I’m such a bag-aholic. I love all the oversize clutches! xo

  4. Love all those clutches!!! Chanel, Givenchy, Louboutin, Hermès … ???
    i wish I could have them all and yes I wish I could have a gorgeous piece as those in my closet!

  5. I’m a clutch girl- even on a casual day. My small clutch collection really allows me to let some of my personality come through, even when I’m wearing a more subdued outfit. There is also something so carefree about a lightweight, colorful or metallic clutch. I have to travel light and that’s just the way I like it!
