April 2019: Can’t Clutch This Review
This month it looks like our packaging got a nice update and instead of a box, our clutch arrived in a pillow mailer. Another nice change is that our clutch arrived in this pink dust bag which is just big enough to fit our new clutch inside. This will be nice for travel when you want to have a few options with you!
Silver Glitter Clutch – Estimated Value $29.99
This month’s clutch is a bit smaller at 7″x9″ and it is made of this fun silver glitter. The purse is actually pleather so it is smooth to the touch and the glitter is completely protected so there is no worry of any glitter escaping and it looks extra shiny! This clutch was designed to be one that you can take to nicer events which is why the designer chose the envelope style flap. It features two loops on the outside so that you can attach a wrist or shoulder strap to it. Last month I felt like they really stood out against the design and looked awkward, but this month they blend into the silver glitter, so they don’t bother me as much.
This clutch features silver hardware and opens up to reveal a zippered pocket with another smaller zippered pocket on the interior. They chose to include the yellow for a fun pop of color to offset the dressier style of this clutch and while I am all about a pop of color, I’m not sure I am loving the yellow with the silver. When I saw spoilers for this they mentioned a space theme and I would have loved to see a fun patterned planet or galaxy interior!
Here is a photo of an old iPhone 7 Plus case next to the clutch so you can see it will be just big enough to fit the essentials for a night out.
These are the two keychains that were designed to go along with this month’s clutch, but unfortunately, they are not included in your subscription. You have the option to add flair and other accessories to your box each month with no additional shipping charge. It looks like a shoulder strap costs $9.99 while the keychains cost $5.99 for the planet and $8.99 for the rocket.
Here is the clutch in hand to give you a better sense of scale.
The Verdict: This month’s clutch from Can’t Clutch This is very basic and sparkly and will go with just about any outfit. I love the silver glitter and the style of the clutch, but without any included flair or accessories like a wrist or shoulder strap, I can’t help but feel like it’s a bit boring for this price point. The monthly subscription cost is $27.99 and that is quite a bit for such a simple piece. I may not be able to find this exact clutch in a store, but don’t think it would be too hard to find something comparable. I really wish that the flair (keychains) had been included or just something extra to make it feel like it’s worth more than just the $2 savings you get for subscribing (based on their clutch retail values of $29.99). If you do choose an annual subscription, the savings are pretty significant as the subscription drops down to $19.99 per month and you are able to skip a clutch if you happen to dislike the design for the month.
