Every year, sometime in April, New Yorkers are treated to a fluke hot, sunny day or two, as a sort of preview to the summer. And while the mercury raises from 40 degrees to only about 70 degrees, all hell breaks loose. All of a sudden, the miniskirts come out, the tube tops get a go, the thong sandals get a dusting. I suspect that the men of NYC look forward to that one fluke day all winter. While this may be an April rite for some New York women, I, being of the firm opinion that miniskirts should be banished from one’s closet after a certain age, prefer to usher in hopes of warm weather by peppering my wardrobe with vibrant colors. This Banana Republic Snake Embossed Clutch does the trick beautifully. Made of embossed leather to resemble snakeskin, this thoroughly modern clutch is clean and unfussy and will be a go-to whenever you’re craving a burst of color. Its slim profile makes it a great choice for an outing with girlfriends or a night out with the BF/hubby. At just $89 and in a three different equally vibrant hues, this purse won’t eat into your summer vacay budget. Perfect! Pick one (or two, or three) up at BananaRepublic.
