My New Autumn Clutches

Summer is nearing to an end and my wardrobe is screaming for new clutches and handbags for autumn. I especially need new clutches. A style and silhouette that is large enough to hold more than a cell phone, but not too big that it looks gigantic and cartoonish. Sometimes overly big clutches can look really awkward. I also prefer leather that is sturdy, but not too stiff. I have noticed many popular clutches have thin leather and when you put something inside it makes the clutch sag and look messy. Maybe a hipster likes lifeless leather, but I do not.

I also wanted clutches with color or at least an interesting print. Something that would go with a variety of outfits even those for work. There are times when I only carry my iPad to work so it would be feasible to use a new clutch on those days. I recently bought q keyboard for my iPad and I find it very easy to write my fashion reviews this way. Of course I’m attached to my laptop, but it’s nice to be able to use just one tech item for word processing and the iPad is so slim.

Several of my fashion editor friends recently bought beautiful clutches from PLIA Designs. This brand makes a range of designer handbags, satchels, purses, carryalls, and leather goods. One friend told me she liked it because it fit her iPad inside. Well after hearing that I knew I immediately must look into the line. I was forwarded PLIA Designs website. I spent a long time viewing all of their collections. What beautiful designer handbags! I loved their esthetic and way with color, function, and design. All of the bags looked useful yet also fashion forward and chic. What more could a fashionista ask for.

I found their clutches. They are called the “Milton” clutches and made up of four designs. Just my luck several of them had a beautiful snake pattern in the most amazing colors. Reading each description I learned the leathers were all lambskin. Oh how much do I love buttery soft lambskin. And it often retains its shape well, too. The silver front clasps were so minimalist and effortlessly chic. And the size and shape was exactly what I was looking for. Square and large, but not too big. It would fit perfectly under my arm.

I cannot wait for my new PLIA Designs clutches to arrive. I set out to find these exact clutches. They will fit in very well with my autumn wardrobe. Now just to give my credit card a rest so I can later order more handbags from the line.

My Brand New PLIA Designs Designer Handbag

It has been a long time since I acquired a new handbag. Not because I don’t know what styles are popular or I don’t love fashion, but I rarely have time to myself to shop. I am constantly writing fashion reviews or write-ups and articles for major glossies. I am surrounded by fashion. Some of the best of fashion and design in the world. Since I was a child, I have had a deep love and appreciation for fashion. But I rarely get a lot of free time to go shopping and when I do have some down time the last thing on earth I want to do is spend it in a boring department store. However, I needed a new handbag to carry me through autumn and winter. It had to be large and roomy inside to carry all of my necessities. And it also needed to be fashion forward and stylish. And as many of you know, I dread logos so of course my new handbag had to be logo-free.

I don’t mind spending money on a designer bag because I know the quality and material is outstanding. But I also have a limit to what I will spend. My handbags travel the world with me and that inevitably leads to wear and tear. Whether they are in front of me under a seat on a plane or next to my chair on the floor at a fashion show, my handbags are put through a lot. Any new handbag I chose needed to be durable and able to keep up with the demands of my job as a busy fashion editor. And it had to be able to hold my beloved laptop and iPad. I have to write a lot and I use both of those to type my reviews on a daily basis.

Designer Handbags

I’d read about PLIA Designs. They are a line of designer handbags, satchels, carryalls, and leather goods. One of their bestsellers is called the Reid courier satchel. I logged onto their beautiful website and ordered the satchel in Posey Street. It is a pretty green nylon twill with sleep bleack leather. It was the perfect color combination. The bottom is full leather. And the price was amazingly affordable. I couldn’t wait for my new PLIA Designs designer bag to arrive. Six days later, UPS delivered my new bag to my office. When taking my new handbag out of its sleeper bag, I could immediately smell its delicious leather. The craftsmanship up close was absolutely amazing. The interior was stunning. It contained an iPad pocket, two smartphone pockets, and even a leather credit card and ID holder. My laptop would definitely fit comfortably inside. I absolutely love my brand new PLIA Designs designer handbag. It is phenomenal. I will be telling all of my fashion friends about this amazing line.

The Perfect Small Satchel

I needed some more color added to my wardrobe. Nothing that everything I wear and carry is black or grey, but I really wanted some bright pops on non obnoxious hues. Sometimes colorful can be either too bright or too overwhelming. I wanted color, but not an overwhelming color or print. I also wasn’t sure if I need more colorful clothing or handbags. Sure I had a few non black handbags, but I truly did not have any handbags with interesting color prints. I decided to go with handbags instead of clothing for my color addition to the wardrobe.

After deciding it would be a handbag to add to my wardrobe, I went about deciding what sort of colors I exactly needed to add. Did I want a solid color or several colors in one. I thought beautiful printed bag would be great to add to my assortment of designer handbags. I also wanted it to be a satchel style. One of my best friends recently received a tote from PLIA Designs and she said the same print was also in their small Reid collection.

PLIA Designs is a purveyor of designer handbags, leather goods, satchels, purses, and carryalls. The hallmark of this accessories firm is their dedication to quality and craftsmanship. In an era where so many purses are mass produced, PLIA Designs has a very firm commitment to making each of their designer handbags one at a time. A trained leather craftsman of the highest calibre creates each handbag piece by piece. This is not a design firm that believes in mass production.

My friend emailed me PLIA Designs website. It was love at first site. Ha! It is a beautifully laid out and well executed e-commerce platform. Rarely do brands have such beautiful websites. There is no flash to slow down the loading time or distracting banners to sign up for their email list. It’s a lovely shopping experience with nice graphics. On PLIA’s collections pages I spotted the small Reid satchel group. I clicked on the graphic.

To my delight, the small Reid collection come in a variety of colors. There is a very bright pink leather body called Jester Street. Lacey Street is a stunningly beautiful grape print. I have never seen a print exactly like this before. It is so extraordinary and unique. I quickly added that one to my shopping cart. Regent Street is a colorful women fabric pattern. It was exactly what I was looking for in terms of splashes of color for my wardrobe. I added Regent Street to my shopping cart as well. I couldn’t wait for my new PLIA Designs handbags to arrive. These two handbags are absolutely the perfect small satchels. And I also solved the problem of adding color to my wardrobe, too!
