So Clutch, Dee

In partnership with Saks.
It’s Tuesday, Tuesday, kickin’ back on Tuesday. Nobody’s waitin’ for the weekend, weekend. Did you guys know I write spoof lyrics on my spare time too? If you say yes I’ll know you’re lying because that shit ain’t true. My ebonics, however, are exemplary. But less about me and more about accessories. Following the FNO line-up I showed you before the holiday weekend yum yum yum, I bring you face to face with the very “Dee Clutch” we are meant to celebrate at Saks as an exclusive with Rebecca Minkoff and them braids in our hair on Thursday night from 6 to 7. This is is also probably as good a time as any to tell you that if you don’t show your face at least one of the four events I am co-hosting I will take it wildly personally and perhaps even attempt suicide. Kidding, man I’m such a jokester today, I love life. But really, be there or bust. Out of your pants. But Dee…
She’s cool, she’s purple, she appreciates a good stud and most important, she features a tassel. And you know our policy on tassels right? If they’re fit for your nipple, they’re fit for your purse. Even aside all of this, the clutch comes with a story. She was created via Polyvore. Last December, Rebecca Minkoff challenged Polyvore users to help her redesign the iconic Morning After clutch. The winner was a laydee, and thus, Dee. Just kidding, her name was Dee. She’s apparently from Michigan and I hear those girls love tassels, know what I’m sayin? Kidding again, whew whew. In any case, her design was put into production and ba da bing, ba da boom, here she is! Isn’t that sweet?
Almost as sweet as my Dries Van Noten shoes. They heat my loins, people. Heated. Loins. Hot loins. And on the same level of Dries Van Awesome as my Dries Van Notens is the clutch incorporated into a transitional season outfit.
Behold: This guy and by guy I mean Dee, and by Dee I mean I’ve toterly just personified the clutch, actually does have a cool chain arm strap in case you don’t feel like inconveniencing and pigeon holing yourself into walking around with an old school portfolio styled holder all day. My dad used to carry a portfolio which is likely why I endorse the style as purse so hard.
 
But you likely still can’t gauge all the outfit’s components and their complimentary nature.
How about now? Better?

Voila. Mid-speech. Blowing wind. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Peas in a pod. Lamb and tuna-fish. Man Repelling designer awareness does it but again. Swing by Saks Thursday night to see more, more, more.
