Wishlist: The Battle of the Clutch Bags

I don't know what's happening to me, I mean I haven't been a handbag kinda gal since I was a child but everything seems to be changing and I'm beginning to feel a little bit like I used to. I usually use a couple of different bags depending on what I need to bring with me instead of what I want to look the best. Often practicality comes over look when it comes to this and I have a larger backpack, a smaller one and a clutch bag/over the shoulder strap bag that I use. But I'm feeling like it's time to change that up and I'm thinking about getting a little spendy in the handbag department but I just can't decide which to get my hands on when I've fallen in love with so god damn many of them. Bags are practical but that doesn't mean they can't be beautiful too right? That's why I'm eyeing up all of these beautiful clutch bags because they're just so pretty. 

Going left to right through the image above, I'm going to talk you through these babies and tell you a little bit about why I've fallen in love with them. 

Okay, maybe I wouldn't use this as a clutch bag. Maybe more of a put awesome things in to put into your bag, if you know what I mean. This would be THE coolest makeup/'crap' bag to put in your bag well ever. It's super pretty, really comical and I just love it. This comes from ShopBop, a website I'm not even sure how I stumbled across recently but oh boy, just look at the bags. SERIOUSLY. It's bag heaven. I'm not usually one for high end bags, but I'd put that down to me not ever browsing them and perhaps not coming across the right ones. That changed and I've featured a few on here because, well, I just couldn't resist. 

Of course I had to feature something from my beloved Topshop. I've been trying to steer away from the site recently but after browsing a few other sites I just couldn't resist having a browse despite the usual pull it has on me usually getting me to spend that bit too much money. This bag is heaven. As you can see I've got a thing for black and perhaps I'm feeling the tassel's a little here too. I love the detailing on this and it looks so much more expensive and high end than Topshop. I think it might be love... 

Okay, another fringed bag but this is too nice also. I'm totally imagining wearing these this festival season. I'm probably thinking a little bit far in advance but I'm praying for the sun so these are helping me feel as though it's that bit closer. The usual black fringing detailing got me hook line and sinker and I can't help but want this one alongside the previous Topshop one. They are different so I can justify wanting both right? 

Oh boy, there's just something about the white against the black on this that got me. It's flipping beautiful. I love a bit of monochrome, it's a necessity in my wardrobe and I'll go as far as saying it's uniform for me. Forever wearing it and so I can imagine this budget bag will fit into my wardrobe nicely. 

Not my usual kind of thing but if I'm going to steer clear of wearing ALL black then why not go all out and wear this? I'm imagining how gorgeous this iridescent clutch would look with an all black outfit. Yes please. 

Do I need to even explain why I love this? The black and stud detailing is heaven and if you hadn't already guessed - ahem, Studs and Dreams, ahem - then you'll know I'm quite the fan of anything with a bit of studded detailing. This is my kind of luxe and high end hand bag. Its luxe but with a bit of an edge and I love that. 

Okay okay, I've fallen in love with them all and I just don't know how I'll choose. Perhaps it'll be down to budget (meaning it will definitely be down to budget) but I don't have to stop dreaming right? I mean it is a wish list after all. 

Go on, add a few more bags to my wish list. What hand bags have you got your eye on at the minute?
