I Just Had To…

…see these clutches.

J Crew Roulette Clutch – Parsley Sprig – The description says this reverses to Apple Green but I think the Parsley Sprig is the interior and the Apple Green the exterior. I think the pic online shows the Apple Green. (Don’t mind me…I’m just trying to use some logic since parsley is dark in color the interior is a darker green.)

The suede to patent effect is seamless. You can only tell by running your hand across the body of the purse.

Inside…still the “ombre effect” with the suede and patent. You can also reverse the clutch and show this as the outside. (See…dark green = the color of parsley)

Without flash – Close to the true interior flap color.
Clutch Style

With the strap lengthened.

Mosaique Clutch – The pink is neon pink. The material is tweed. It’s the same concept as the Roulette Clutch.

Interior – You could reverse the clutch so the jewels are on the inside and this is the outside. Although I wouldn’t want to hide the jewels.

What do you think?

    I've had my eye on the gold/beige version of that clutch since the Look Book appeared online. I like that the size is versatile. Could you use it for daytime? Have you put stuf in it to see how the shape holds up? Thank you for the photos. I can't believe that both shades of green aren't available on the site.

    I think the Mosaique Clutch is really whimsical; the jewels are cute…very BLING. And I have a penchant for BLING 🙂
    Are you gonna keep it?

    Oooh, lovely. I want the Roulette Clutch but I'm not warming up to either colorway at the moment. I don't wear green or yellow and I realise I don't have to match everything but I am not sure either would work with my mostly blue/pink/purple wardrobe because the colors are so vibrant – that's part of the charm. Maybe the yellow as I have a bit of orange and red, but I might just hope they release another in a cooler hue.

    Thank you for sharing the review and photos. Let us know how functional they are IRL.

    Thanks everyone. I hope this was helpful.

    Both can hold a small slim wallet, phone, camera (small) and lipstick. It doesn't do well adding a lot to it even though there are a few pockets to use.

    Even though the green of the Roulette would be the one I would use most, I already have a Kate Spade in the same color. As for the Mosaique Clutch, that pink was pretty bright IRL and kind of bothered me. I'm going to take a few more days to decide if I am going to keep one, both or neither.
