The good news was that this clutch was very reasonably priced, which is something that I can seldomly say for many of my handbags. It's also very practical, which is also something I can seldomly say for many of my handbags! This straw clutch perfectly fits a wallet, phone, and sunglasses with room to spare. Below are some other fun straw and pom pom options, as this seems to be a trend that's cropping up for spring.
The title of this post, if you didn't know, is an allusion to the film The Big Lebowski, which happens to be one of my husband's favorites. I just replaced "rug" with "clutch" and "room" with "outfit" in the famous quote said by Jeff Bridges' character "The Dude". My husband is ultimately the one responsible for this clever title because once I had assembled my final look for the day, he told me "that clutch really ties your outfit together". Actually, I think this colorful wall is what really ties everything together! The Dude abides, but Katie abides too!
