The Statement Clutch With River Island

Autumn's hit, there's a chill in the air and I'm dressed in all black. It's official.

River Island gifted me this beautiful black quilted clutch bag* and isn't it a beaut? It has a gold chain shoulder strap, gold-tone accents, zip and popper fastening - making it the perfect everyday accessory. I'm also wearing one of my favourite cotton tops from Urban Outfitters, it's so comfortable and great for casual weekend days like today. Not to forget, a pop of Mac's Ruby Woo that always does the job on a cool day, personally I don't think a winter outfit is complete without a statement lip - especially if you're wearing all black.

The clutch isn't a bag I would usually go for but I thought I would take a risk with the design and it was a great move. It's so practical for any occasion with a secure fastening; one thing I would say is I was conscious not to over accessorise as the gold chain can become a focal point of the outfit. One thing I did add was my Oliva Burton watch, adding to the gold accents.

While I was at the airport, I spotted these Raybans (similar here) and had to get them. I am so in love with them, wearing them on every occasion possible. Yeah I get it that summer is over but I've been after a pair for so long, especially after all of my sunglasses from New Look or Topshop always break after a few months - plus, winter sun can be a killer at times. So I thought it was time to invest in some which should last me for years. I wanted them to look timeless, and I think, I THINK they do the job - what do you reckon?

What's your favourite statement handbag?
