I’ve always been a bit of a bag lady. When I was younger, I told people I wanted to be Kate Spade when I grew up. While I haven’t gone on to become a purse designer (yet at least!), I have such admiration for those who are. Meet Sarah from Sew Sarah R, whose pages upon pages of clutch designs have me drooling.
Totally customizable, from the fabric [ exterior + lining! ], to a personalized label inside, to monograms or other stitching on the outside, these clutches make such perfect gifts— especially for bridesmaids! Get your right-hand ladies matching ones, or coordinating colors, and add a chain if you want to make sure their hands are free for bouquets! Getting a big or little in your sorority this semester? Treat them with their letters on a clutch in your house’s colors.
I know should my wedding day ever come, I’ll be treating my bridesmaids to these— and maybe another for myself!
Sarah is offering my readers 10% off clutches from her Etsy shop with the code Shell, or if you buy from her website, you can enjoy free shipping until August 19th! Can’t wait to see what you all pick out :)

I remember being quite young and reading an article in some teen magazine or another about the coolest college campuses. Harvard University was on that list, due in large part– I’m sure– to the preppy-meets-hipster sanctuary that is Harvard Square. I spent this past unseasonably warm Saturday strolling between the Square and the Charles River, where The Head of the Charles Regatta was taking place– an October tradition I’ve tried to make a point to come to since I first moved to Boston. Clam chowder, pumpkin beer, and old fashioned sarsaparilla were enjoyed. I do recommend it.

I share my love for Boston on here quite often. What I don’t share enough is my love for that little town over the river known as Cambridge. I’ve been spending lazy weekend afternoons there lately, and these photos come from a stroll around Harvard’s campus– an area I don’t get to nearly as much as I’d like to ever since I moved to this side of the Charles.
post script. This pretty scarf bag is from Angela & Roi, and don’t forget– they are offering 20% off one handbag of your choice to so anthro readers!
