For my daughter’s first Holy Communion I was looking for a simple, flat bag to match my otfit, consisting of white trousers and a dark blue macramé lace shirt with peplum. I bought a clutch bag by Liu Jo, the New Cannes model, that has white, blue and dark blue stripes. It was perfect for my clothes, it had the same colours and I completed the outfit with my beautiful blue and gold sandals. This bag well contained the wallet, the cell phone, the handkerchiefs, without changing the thin and elongated shape and the detachable strap well matched my Swaroski necklace.
The clutch bag has been a great purchase. Since then, I’ve been using it very often. When I go to the supermarket, for example, I wear it cross body … I know it could be not too much elegant but in this way my hands are free to carry heavy shopper bags full of everything and do not have to adjust the shoulder strap… The bag adds that touch of style anyway, especially when you have to deal with tasks that requires so much strength!
I used this bag this summer, during my my trip to Croatia. When we go on holiday (we are a family of four) there are always many and heavy suitcases to carry, even if you try to bring only what is strictly needed. And we are that kind of tourist that, when they go abroad, the never stay in the same place, but spin around to enjoy as many places as possible. At Plitvlice Lakes I had my Liu Jo cluth bag which perfectly fitted my outfit composed of a jeans skirt, a white t-shirt, a pair of sneakers. Again I wore it cross body and carried it with me along the 8 km of trails around and across the wooden bridges on the lakes. This time I used it to contain our identity papers, the Kune (Croatian local money), my smartphone to immortalize those wonderful sceneries. My bag was perfect, it was comfortable and beautiful at the same time.
