Merlot. Stud. Clutch.

The day after. License to gorge on as many chocs, lollies and all them delectable lunches and dinners hosted by your Valentine, has now expired. Good thing it’s nearly the weekend, eh? But before you go off and enjoy yours, let me share a little something about a new statement of love.

Merlot. Stud. Clutch. Summed up, a stunning statement, don’t you agree?

Clutch

Big clutch. Definitely suits my needs more than them tiny ones.

Latter’s adorable and a whole lot more glamourous to lug around but knowing I need to stuff it more than it can carry would be unwise.

Stud

Stud army. Posed a question on whether its simply awesome to look at but awkward to hold, I found that it’s both.

However, I’m willing to accept the stud marks on inner arms and palms simply because it’s not catastrophic, bottomline. Tiny inconvenience, that’s all it is.

Merlot

It’s not just red. It’s Merlot. Deeper, richer, darker red hue fitting for the ever colour-phobe like me. Injecting colour, I decided a while back.

Gradually choosing to add pieces as I transition. It works well with Khaki, I noticed. Good, good.

Sooooo. Did you folks enjoy Valentine’s Day? I’m sure y’all still have entire Valentine weekend planned. Have fun and stay safe!

P.S. Adding this to my collection of clutches along with these. It originally retailed for AUD$ 39.95 (roughly around Php 1,720.00) over at Sportsgirl but I only got it for AUD$ 13.95 (roughly around Php 600.00). Lusted at first sight but having waited had its perks, haha.
