Favourite Clutches and Makeup Bags

I have a thing for small accessories preferably card holder, cosmetics bags and clutches; I think they just looks so pretty, delicate and chic all at the same time and I love to collect them. I thought it would be nice to do a little round up of my favourites. Majority of them were free as they were gifts with purchases or just freebies handed out in stores while others were purchased by me. I just love them and I have quite a few of them as you can see from the pictures...

Specsavers Oyster Card Holder
Oyster Card is the London travel card which enables you travel on the Tube, Rail, Buses and virtually most modes of transportation. I am not sure people actually buy Oyster Card holders per say; I know I have never. I get given different ones in trains stations (free) usually a brand trying to do some kind of promo although I have seen some on sale in some shops though!! I got this from Specsavers and I think it’s so cute. It depicts various aspects of London including Big Ben, Westminster, London Buses, etc. It is such a lovely bright and cheery design and I often get asked where I purchased it from only for me to say it was from Specsavers. It has two sections so you can store your oyster card in one and maybe a tube map in another.

Accessorize Card Holder
I just loved this card holder the moment I set my eyes on it and I am not sure why because it is not anything exciting. It’s just a simple card holder which initially housed my Oyster card in the past. It is surprisingly good quality and I have had it for almost a year and it still looks the same way it was when I first purchased it. It also has two compartments so I now store my Gym pass and my work ID in it.

Whistles Card Holder
This has been talked about on this post here so I won’t go into too much detail. I love how this looks and feels and I reserve it for outings in the evening when I am not taking my wallet with me and it is now my oyster card holder. It has three compartments so you can store your ID, Oyster card and Bank card in here and it’s so handy as everything is kept in one place. I have a review on this here.

Lancome Cosmetics/Makeup Bags
How gorgeous are these pouches? I love them so much and I switch them up as my makeup bag every now and then especially when I am trying to streamline my makeup. They are slim and sleek and can fit into majority of my handbags and even clutches without any issues. I love that it comes in black and red which are some of my favourite colours...well black is an all time favourite while red is my favourite for Christmas as expected. It has one zip at the end embossed with the Lancome rose and it has some faux gold plating. I got this free as a gift with purchase along with some Lancome makeup brushes and other goodies last year and they have served (and still serving) me well.

Elie Saab Le Parfum Clutch
I received this a little while back as a Gift with Purchase when I bought the Elie Saab Eleganza perfume back in June. Would you believe I have still not used it? I just feel it may get stained but I don’t know for sure. It holds a fair amount of essentials but you really don’t want to stuff it as it may look to bulging and it’s not as sturdy as the Whistles clutch but it looks lovely. I may take it with me when next I travel as I love the colour or maybe I need to wait till Spring.

Zara Wristlet Pouch
I still adore this lovely Zara Wristlet/Pouch which I purchased during the January Sales for only £4. It was my makeup bag for so long until I got other makeup bags. Now, I use it as a casual clutch during the weekend when I am not ready to lug around a heavy bag. I love how spacious it is and I fit in quite a few things inside and it still looks chic. The wristlet detail is superb as it gives a good grip and control of this lovely clutch.

Whistles Shiny Croc Clutch (Small)
You all know how I feel about Whistles accessories so I won’t rave further but this small clutch has been my favourite and go-to clutch for the weekends and evening outings. I can see it getting so much use during Christmas when I hope to go for more parties. It holds more things than you would imagine judging from its size. A mini review can be found here.

Lulu Guiness Makeup Bag
Again, I am sure this has made several appearances on the blog simply because I love it. Although I use it mainly as a makeup bag, it can be used as a clutch because it is really roomy. I just love this so much and its zipper has the signature Lulu Guinness Lips at the end. I always feel so happy knowing that I only got it for £20 when it currently retails for £65 on Harvey Nichols. I guess it’s because it is limited edition so it’s a little pricey but it is made from patent leather and it is well lined inside so it is really good quality.  That’s it folks. I hope you have enjoyed this little peek and I hope to catch you in my next post...x
