[Leopard], 'The Paragon of Animals'


Cortnie from StyleLustPages was sweet enough to send me one of her Love, Cortnie creations! I LOVE THIS CLUTCH!  She uses upholstery fabric instead of the typical calf hair and I think it is an excellent and original take on the classic print!  The clutch is so soft, utterly cute and I've gotten loads of compliments on it. 

There's a little inside pocket that comes in quite handy for a cell and a tube of lipstick, and at $45, you really can't go wrong! I've been searching for the perfect animal print clutch for a while and this bag more than satisfies my search.

Check out Cortnie's Etsy page (click here) where you can get the one I have or any one of her other brilliant patterns.

Thanks so much, Cortnie!
