You know how sometimes you purchase an item because you like it and might get good use out of it but it isn't until you actually start using it that you realize how GREAT it actually is and how much you do in fact love it? That's exactly how I feel about my beloved Parquet Zip Clutch from Kestrel! I loved the herringbone pattern and knew it would be useful in keeping my knickknacks neat and separated with it's zipped pockets, especially during my travels, but it really has become one of my favorite bags because of it's stylish versatility and quality.
The pattern was hand-drawn which I found absolutely charming and features strong gold hardware zippers, another element I love, but the best thing about it is its functionality and how it can be used as both a clutch or a beauty bag. The black coated lining makes it easy to clean, a definite plus for storing your cosmetics and hair care while on the road or after having a wild night out on the town. The nifty little dust bag it comes with keeps the clutch protected when not in use.
I cannot rave about my Kestrel clutch enough but don't take my word for it, have a look at the full collection for yourself at kestrel.com. They also make some beautiful large weekend bags, totes, and leather goods. Pick one, get it, you won't be disappointed! You're welcome ;-P
