Its safe to say that I am a handbag girl. Clutches, totes, shoulder I own an array of different styles flittering between them every month or so, I absolutely love the feeling of changing bags and arranging all my bits and bobs (aka junk) into a fresh bag. When it comes to a night out however I tend to stick to what I know and always go back to my trusty clutch (a River Island number FYI - post here). So when House of Fraser got in touch and offered me a chance to test out a bag from their Pied a Terre range I casually agreed (ok I excitedly said yes :-)) What I was sent was a gorgeous clutch bag* a far cry from my usual simple style. Electric blue snakeskin, with suede detail and silver hardware this clutch is definitely a distinctive change - but you know what I like. Big enough to hold the evening necessities (5 lipsticks anyone?) with a secure clasp this is a welcome addition to my collection. Inside there is even a zip compartment and several card holders - a rarity with clutches which allows the usually anal Virgo in me to me that little more organised. OK its not the most versatile bag colour wise, I am thinking all black ensemble, killer heels it will definitely make a statement. 

The Pied a Terre clutch is currently on sale for £49.50 having been reduced from £99 and is available now from House of Fraser here.
