The Anatomy Of A Party Clutch
We’ve all heard that ‘a gentleman never opens a woman’s purse, but have you every wondered why? Have you ever thought of what was inside it? What’s so secretive, that you should never get on the inside of her arm candy? Well, to tell you the truth, even as a girl, I don’t know.
I’m not sure what weapons of mass destruction these women, who invented this rule, were carrying around – but I’ve got to be honest – thank God for them! But for the boys, I’ve got a little treat for you: I’m going to break down the contents of a girl’s party clutch for you right here, right now; so you know what’s in it exactly. And ladies, if any of these things are missing from your clutch, you need to go shop:
Most predictable, no? The lipstick shade you’re wearing for a night out, automatically turns into your BFF for the evening. You check your lipstick as many times as your WhatsApp (if not more), and so you’re constantly touching up your perky pout up. This one’s something you’ll find in every woman’s little, cramped clutch, for sure.
It’s going to be a long night, and you know you’re going to need something extra to keep you looking fresh for those Facebook uploads. (#SELFIE much?) Enter: compact. Touch up and brush through maybe once in an hour, or two, depending on the brand you use and your personal skin type.
The Little Perfume Bottle
A little spill of fragrance can take the girl a long way, really. Make sure that you have a little pocket size version of your favorite fragrance, just to some spruce yourself up every now and then. After all, no one loves to dance with a girl that smells like well…raw fish.
The Little Pouch
It isn’t cute to see a girl struggling with her money, so keep a little section or pouch (depending on the size of your clutch) dedicated to your bills and/or cards. This makes it organized and doesn’t make it look like you’re fishing for the cute boy you’re chatting up to take care of your share.
The Business Card / Key Holder
Definitely among the most under-valued items in a woman’s hand carry. If you’re a working woman and know how important it is to not let go of a potential client or a networking opportunity, then you know how important your business cards are for you. Make sure you look like a lady with something so ‘big girl’ like.
There has to be something in a lady’s bag for an emergency situation – like a cute boy! Who says that doesn’t count as an emergency, right? Well, when you know you’ve had a bit much to drink, or have had a really late night out, this little friend could be your savior!
A Tampon/Sanitary Napkin
Speaking of emergencies – here’s a really nasty one! It’s the worst thing ever when you’re all dressed up, and just headed out for a night of fun and you get your period. You know you don’t want the buzz of the night being ruined by a return trip home, even if it is just for a little while. Stay safe at all times with a little help – hey, maybe that’s why most women don’t like their bags touched by men?!
