You clutch them. Hence the name. I've never had one, but they're really pretty. I'd probably put it down and loose it though.
From Etsy... I love lavender and green together. It's a color combination that is often overlooked.
From Flickr... Yellow and black is another one of those combination that isn't given enough love.
This one is rather 1990'sish.
From Flickr... This one is a little more "modern"
This one is my favorite. The green lining is divine.
One day I'll buy myself a clutch. I'm just terrified I'll loose it.
