Purses and clutches and bags Oh My!

Any fashionista knows that the key to polishing off any outfit is to accessorize. So it is no wonder that many of us have oodles and oodles of handbags and clutches in our fashion arsenal. Accessories are the ammo you need to take your look from drab to fab.

On Thursday, April 3, Lauren Merkin, clutch and handbag design extraordinaire, will be at Cusp (3030 M Street, NW) from 6 to 8 p.m. to preview her spring collection of clutches, handbags and accessories. Isn’t that grand? Ooh and ahh over gorgeous spring clutches in vibrant hues of pinks, yellows, purples and more. Snag a couple of accessories from her spring line for your collection. With cute names like Lola, Viv, Char, Emma in her collection, I can’t get enough. Her Diane Clutch is fab in 8 gorgeous colors. Bring one of your fave Laura Merkin bags and get her to sign it for you. If you can’t make it to the store, go to her website where you can get a piece of the action. Custom design your own clutch or handbags in your favorite colors or get your favorite one monogrammed. So fab.
