10 Embellished Bags to Get You Ready For Party Season

Wedding season may be over, but party season is only just begining. The major plus to the switch of seasons? Instead of spending money on champagne flutes, salad bowls, or honeymoon adventures for another happy couple, this time around you can spend all your hard earned cash on something special for just you. Why not make your new treat something extra special? An embellished clutch is an easy way to dress up a simple LBD, velvet frock, or slip dress and is sure to bring a smile to your face every time you see it shining back at you.

Helping Your Handbag Into Spring

Working in the fashion industry has a lot of perks. Editors frequently get gifted expensive bags, dresses, and shoes, PR reps brush shoulders with the rich and famous, and even interns sometimes get to attend the fashion shows of their dreams. But my favorite perk by far, is the ability to experiment with my work wardrobe in a way no other industry allows. I can wear crop tops and fringe and flatforms and statement necklaces  without fear of office ridicule, or worse, breaking dress code rules and expectations. Not everyone is so lucky, however. So for those fashionistas sticking to a strict diet of business attire, here is an easy way to add some punch and personality to your everyday look.

Whether you're a black leather tote or a mini bucket bag kind of girl, there is always a way to spice up your handbag. Wrap a scarf around the handle or add a keychain to the strap to make your classic purse feel like new again.
