Because it's slow...

Damn all you west coast ladies, I have been up sine 5:30am and the board has been so slow!

After watching ChrisandEva's webcast a few weeks ago, I decided to go the clutch bag instead of floral bouquet route for my bridesmaids. 

I normally don't pimp out my blog like this, but would you mind heading over there(link in siggy) and letting me know which of the bags you would prefer if you were a bridesmaid.  Pretty please!

TIA

    I like one the best, but I think that two is the most versatile.  Two would probably go with any kind of dress and your bridesmaids would get more use our of it later.

    I am doing a clutch too.  My colors are Wine and Ivory with touches of deep green.  My ladies are going to get deep green clutches and my florist is adding peacock feathers on them.


    I love this idea and I like the ones you choose. I LOVE # 2 though You can never go wrong with a clutch unless it has that long string like arm strap then it looks like it came from the 80's and its just weird

    Haha!  I'm pretty sure all of them come with the chain strap attachment.  They do look so silly when they are used!

    Oh and not to jump ship on this post but I wanted to congratulate you on your weight loss.  Its a struggle.  I am dealing with it myself.  My sister was murdered, my best friend was killed along with her babies 3 months later and I had recently had a baby ( this was 9 years ago) and the only thing I knew that was real was food and death.  Whenever someone died there was food everywhere.
    After 2 more babies I just packed it on LOL

    I finally got to the point where I was sick of myself and realized that this man loved me and I didn't have to work for it.  I was loved and everything was real not just food and death.  Once I let that go the pounds started to go away.  I have dropped 50 lbs since August and still losing.

    Your gonna be fine when your a wife and mommy and let me tell you EVERYTHING happens for a reason.

    I don't even know you but you have done well. I love your blog and will be a continued reader.  Thanks for pimping it out

    Sekceyes - You are so sweet, thanks for sharing that with me.  My mom died last year, causing me to gain about 15 pounds, on top of everything I gained in the last 5 years, so I know what you mean.

    Also..... I agree with you about the whole trying to be the wife, work full time, etc... and STILL look good for our soon to be hubby's! It's hard! I hope some day I can cut back my hours and actually get to enjoy cooking and taking care of the house, right now....It's just one more thing on my  to do list! and it has effected my me time :( But oh well..... After the wedding I hope to get back to myself and plus.... I am going to need to find a hobby! I have only lived in this town for 2 years and only know a few people, so that has made it hard on me.... So I might as well make the gym my new hobby :)

    I love #3! If I were shopping that is the one I would pick out for myself! I love the flower detail. It does a look a little more youthful. It might depend on the ages of your bridesmaids. #2 is more classic.

    Time changes suck.  I was at work this morning with nothing to do because my students were taking a standardized test in another room.  It was 7am and I realized that a lot of the commenters on here were still fast asleep!

    I hate that time difference!  I used to be an east-coaster (WV/MD) but now live in Seattle... so talking with family is terribly annoying!

    Anyway... I LOVE #1!  Where did you find that one?

    Yeah!!! Gotta love the clutches!

    I got mine from ebags.com so I did a little search for purple for you to add to your choices: http://www.ebags.com/search/index.cfm?fuseaction=searching&Nso=0&Ns=DISPLAYPRICE&displayType=grid&itemsPerPage=48&N=20036679+90047682&Ne=90047672&order=DISPLAYPRICELH. They are in the $30 range.

    And we were going to do a peacock feather on the clutches as well, but the morning before we changed our minds and put the peacock feather on the BM dresses and it was awesome!

    LOVE #3!

    The clutch Idea is sounding so good to me right now. Where did you find these again.


    Also #2 matches your shoes pretty good as well.


    Great Choices!

    Thanks for all the input ladies!  #1 is from Windsor.com and the other two are both by Jessica Mclinktock.

    Definitely check out ebags.com.  When I was deciding if I wanted to do clutches I found a ton there.  Also I think you can get cashback on purchases.

    AAWWWWWW - REALLY??? Do I have to pick just ONE??? LOL

    Love the versitility of #2 but they are ALL cute!  If you don't mind, you could give your ladies the choice of picking their own out of the three.

    #3 is my favorite - i love it! 

    but i think #2 is the most 'neutral' - i think the girls could get more use out of it and its the one i think you have the best chance of everyone liking :)

    (i don't know if i worded any of that correctly.  i'm way too distracted by trying to figure out what is going on with American Idol, haha)

    I love them all... and clutches are just genius... I'm partial to the first one, but you really can't go wrong with any of them!
