May 2019: Can't Clutch This Review
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!
Banana Clutch - Estimated Value $29.99 (value based on their clutch retail values)
All I can think (and sing) every time I look at this month's design is "This clutch is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!"
This month's clutch measures 7"x 10" and it is made of this pretty blue pleather and features embroidered yellow bananas all over the front with gold hardware. I have to admit, this is NOT my style at all, but I find myself really liking this month's clutch for some reason. Maybe it's the colors or the way it makes me sing (see above), but I think this is a much more unique design than last month and I can definitely appreciate that. I could see myself using this as a fun clutch at the beach this summer or using it as a way to organize my diaper bag. Once again, it does have those loops on the outside to attach a wrist or shoulder strap to it and I think they stand out somewhat but aren't as noticeable since the gold matches the yellow in the bananas. Also this month I can't fault them for placing them on the outside since this clutch features a zippered top that wouldn't allow for hidden loops.
The gold zipper at the top opens up to reveal a yellow interior which goes nicely with the bananas on the outside. There is one small zippered pocket on the inside.
This is the "flair" 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 $8.99 each.
Here is the clutch in hand to give you a better sense of scale. I actually really love the blue color and I like that one side is just solid.
The Verdict: This month's clutch from Can't Clutch This is cute, but definitely a very taste specific. I could see this subscription being really fun at the annual subscription price point of $19.99 per month, but at $27.99 per month, I just don't think the value is there when they don't include the strap or any flair to go along with it. These clutches do sell out and there is a waitlist so I guess you are definitely paying for the perk of a guaranteed bag, but I'm not sure that's worth 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 and you are able to skip a clutch if you happen to dislike the design for the month which is nice.
