Somewhere along the way, I grew tired of these clutches. Other than the construction, there was no real common thread making them a collection (can you tell that a new season of Project Runway has begun?), and I wasn't even struggling with wanting to keep them for myself (which indicates a problem, right? I mean, I should want to love the things I create, no?) Anyway, while I was busy not taking the handmade clutch market by storm, I took some time to rethink my aesthetic and decided that I am lovin' the business out of some 80s colors and color-blocking right now.
While I love the quilting fabrics that grace the facades of my pleated clutch purses, I am loving (if I do say so) these new clutches -- simple, bold, bright, graphic...loud, even. You should pop over to my shop to check them out. In the coming weeks, I'll also be working on a whole collection of these that feature neutrals paired with more bold colors, so stay tuned.
What do you think? Should you love stuff you try to convince other people to love and buy?
