I've chosen this fabulous multi-shaded faux python clutch from their in-house collection for 2012 Spring/Summer to go with my look for the coming season. The clutch is called Aroxta the it bag for a very good reason. It is super versatile, since it comes with a detachable strap so you can turn the clutch into a shoulder bag. And it ain't no flimsy strap, with two buttons on each side so you don't need to worry about your bag falling apart. One thing I have against clutches is just how ridiculously small they are you can't even fit your usual wallet in, but this one is like the king kong of clutches, it fits my wallet, keys, camera, smart phone, organiser, and an assortment of junk with ease. It also has a zipper compartment and two pouches for you to sort your stuff out. The magnetic clip works like magic, and it stays in place pretty well, so I never have to worry about stuff falling from the bag.
This bag is great for all sorts of occasions! For a chill weekend look, why not take your clutch out, and throw on Charlotte Ronson’s girly yellow tank top from her Spring/Summer 2011 collection? Inspired by the romantic moorish style, her latest pieces are all about dressing down, but in a dreamy way. Paired with Replay's 30th anniversary limited edition straight fit denim jeans, which has all these attractive details that the fashion savvy will no doubt instantly pick up, it will make a great set for a walk around the park or enjoying a great cuppa at the café just down the road.
It is also a great shoulder bag for your all important meetings, where you really don't want to be carrying more than you need, with laptops and the gizmo trailing along already. It goes well with EQ:IQ's white suit and off white lace shirt from their latest 2012 Spring/Summer collection, which are designed with the chic lifestyle of confident and expressive women in mind. You can topped off with Carolinna Espinosa's retro 2012 Spring/Summer collection, which is inspired by the fifties but with a twist, like this feminine pair of peep toe heels that has a quirky flip flop element.
It is also classy enough for a spin at the glamorous balls and cocktail parties! What about putting it together with this dazzling night gown from Hugo Boss, mixed with some quaint and contemporary bangles from Pretty Dangerous? They are also hosting another lucky draw, which by spending $500 on Aroxta's online shop, you will get a chance in winning this exact same clutch but in blue, so start shopping now, and draw a clutch right in time for a new Easter look!
