Two of my greatest loves in this world (outside of my family, of course) are books and handbags. So when you put both together, I’m in heaven. When this clutch finally went on sale, I nearly collapsed with excitement, because the dream of owning a book that is, in fact, a handbag finally came to fruition (don’t you love when that happens?).
Add a sleek dress and some bright heels, and you’ve got the makings of a great night (and maybe even some inspiration for Valentine’s Day).
Or, as Taylor Swift so eloquently put it, “It’s a love story. Baby, just say yes.”
