March 2019: Can’t Clutch This Review
Go Nuts for Donuts Clutch – Estimated Value $29.99
This month’s clutch is a fun and whimsical design with a nice semicircle donut flap at the top complete with colorful embroidered sprinkles. This clutch is made from pink pleather and measures 10×8. I was impressed with both the quality and the size of this clutch. I like the textured look of the pink pleather and while the design is a bit cutesy for my taste, I think that the neutral colors really help to make the design feel more subtle. I could see taking this for a girls brunch or a fun night out on occasion.
It features gold hardware and has two loops on the outside that you can use to attach a shoulder strap, and while I appreciate that they are there, I felt like they either needed to commit to the idea of being a clutch and have no loops, or at least include a strap if it is going to be such a noticeable part of the design. They also could have simply hidden them on the inside under the flap, which would have been great too!
As far as adding “flair” or accessories, you have the option to add them to your box each month with no additional shipping charge. It looks like a shoulder strap costs $9.99 while a keychain costs $8.99. While free shipping is nice, I can’t help but feeling like there should be some sort of discount for adding these items to your box. But maybe that’s just me?
If you aren’t too keen on the donut design, you can always flip it over to the back which is just plain pink with this small gold Studio DIY! detail.
The donut flap opens up to reveal one large zippered compartment with pink fabric inside that feels like it will wipe clean very easily, which I can appreciate having had one too many lipsticks open up in my other bags! Inside of this is a small interior zippered pocket. This bag can easily hold all of the essentials and probably a bit more!
Here I am holding the clutch to give you a sense of scale. I really do like the blush pink color and the tan details and think this clutch will go well with a lot of outfits.
The Verdict: I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and size of my clutch from Can’t Clutch This. The design was cute and not too over the top, but it is definitely a very subjective one! As for the monthly subscription cost of $27.99, that feels like a lot for one clutch with no included or even discounted accessories. If they had included a cute keychain to go with it, that might have tipped the scales for me just a bit as far as what value I felt like I was getting by subscribing. I like that the designs are exclusive and I thought the quality was good, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the $2 savings for this design (based on their clutch retail values of $29.99). While I think it is a lot of money for a month to month subscription, their annual subscription seems to be a bit more affordable at $19.99 per month and might be worth considering since you can skip a clutch if you don’t like the design that month!
