Lookbook: In the Clutch

11/15/2013

I know, I know. An outfit post on a Friday--that's not the norm here on the Muse, but I had another great look to show you so I figured, why not? Hats are my jam so I've been rocking them like crazy. But most of what I'm wearing is either from Boohoo or this cute accessories store on ShopLately called Bling. And yes, that's a clutch that looks like a folded magazine, and I love it! I wore this for dinner and a live show with some friends in Oakland.

Have you ever been told your name was "on the list" (or a similar situation) and got to the event and then they couldn't find your name? So then you have to decide do you let it go and just pay the cover? Or do you find a way to right the wrong? Are you making it a bigger deal than it really is, or is it a battle worth fighting for? (lol, a battle). It was a clutch moment between winning and losing.

This is in conjunction with the ShopLately Blogger Week. Check it out for some great deals!
What do you think of this look? Happy weekend!

P.s. ~ Random thought: I think I'd be the happiest I've ever been if I were singing on a stage somewhere.
