Try-it-out Tuesday: white tee, version 2.0

     On Saturday night I took my friend K out for martinis and happy hour. That day, the clutch I won from Joanne of Fabulously Average's Purse & Clutch giveaway arrived, so it was the perfect occasion to break in my new bag. :)

    First off, let me express my awe at how beautiful this bag is! The web site photos don't really do it justice. I love textiles, and these fabrics are gorgeous. I also love the company's focus on empowering women to build better lives for themselves.
The card with the artisans' names is a lovely, thoughtful touch.
      Given the quality of the fabric and the great cause, I think the price they charge ($28 for the classic clutches) is a steal. The only thing that would make this bag even better is a small wrist strap that could be tucked inside, but popped out and slung over your wrist when you need both hands while running errands. However, that won't stop me from using this clutch often. :)
        Now, let's get back to the clothes ... I'm still on the hunt for the perfect white tee, but tucking this slightly baggy one into a pencil skirt did wonders for the shape. I also like the casualness of a white tee juxtaposed with a pencil skirt. I consider this version 2.0 of the tee-and-jeans uniform I'm trying to break away from.  :)
