In Her Clutches.

Before I started working from home, I carried what seemed like my entire life with me in my bag. Books, magazines, laptop, note pad, umbrella,  iPhone, the odd lollipop or Hershey's Kiss - in New York, when you're car-less, you've got to haul it all. For me, this required carrying a ridiculously large purse - my "mom purse," as I called it. (Note: I am not a mom.) 

Now that I no longer commute, however, I find myself leaving home with decidedly less: my keys, my phone, my Metrocard. It's got me thinking that it may finally be time to trade in the mom purse in favor of something a little more petite. Like one of these quirky clutches from Roxy Marj. The size, the shape, the cheerful prints - I'm smitten.

1000%...it's become like a game for me - how little i can take out on any given day. my shoulders and sanity thank me. i love these clutches; i also love doing "evening" (sparkles, sequins, metallics) for day.

Oh gosh, I'm smitten too. I like how simple and sweet her patterns are - I'd definitely like to carry one of her clutches around with me all day. (:

Yeeep I think we all have one of those... super attractive... gigantic "mom purses" in New York ;) These little clutches are the cutest.

i'm loving these clutches! they're so cute!

Linda said...

Adorable! Great for storing valuables or makeup too!

Molly said...

These are so cute! I've been looking for a clutch/wallet hybrid that can fit a phone and keys along with my wallet-y things and these totally fit the bill! (pun sort of intended with the whole bill/wallet thing)

Less really is more, but I can't seem to grasp that for longer than a week. I always want everything just in case. Those little darlings are great too. Maybe I could put them IN my purse. Ha.

SunKissed Sisters said...

These are adorable. And her etsy has lots of fun things in it!

Hannah Brandt said...

These are so cute! And I love the idea of carrying a small purse with just the necessities. It's great to be prepared, but I find that my things get so lost in a "mom purse" and then I forget I have what I need when I actually need it.

Rachel @ Existation said...

I LOVE that first one!

Ciara said...

I just got one of these the other day! I got the wavy lines one. It's so cute! I'm a small purse lady, but I like to have little bags in one big bag. It's easy for me to grab just what I need if I'm in a rush. I definitely recommend these little pouches. So well made and adorable.

Kathy said...

Love these! So tempted to get that red and white one...

Shoko said...

Hannah Margaret, haha - that's totally something I would do, too :)

Ciara, lucky you! That one is so cute!

The polka dot one is my fave. Although, I could never sport a clutch. I'd love to, but I'm the type that likes to stuff my life into my purse!

By the way, I'd love to know...what do you do? You're a freelance writer, no? Do you write regularly for any specific publication? Reason I'm asking is because I'm interested in finding out a little more about freelancing.

Jenna said...

these are adorable! I'm on the lookout for a little bag for business cards, maybe this will work!

Jennifer Young said...

i adore these. i'm loving the spotted one! did you snag one?!

Shoko said...

Jillian, I'll email you this week about it!

Jen, I haven't but I certainly plan to :)

Mel Scouts said...

I love all the patterns. They all have an organic touch. There's so much creativity going around. Love it.

Alice said...

Ahhhh these are so adorable!
The arrow print clutch is so freaking adorable! As is the polka dot one and pretty much every other one :)

I really wish I could get one of these clutches since they are so quirkyishly cute in all the best ways!
Unfortunately, I've never really been much of a girl to carry bags or anything of that sort. After all, isn't that what your packets are for? Heehee...
Lately though, I've been realizing that I need to start caring all my belongings in something. It's time for me to grab a cute bag and filling it to the brim with awesome randomness!

Maybe someday, if I finally get the hang of carrying something other than just my phone and keys around, I'll be able to get one of these gorgeous Roxy Marj clutches.
I hope that you get one Shoko!
That way I can live vicariously through you :)

Oh and before I end my super long rambly comment, just a few more little things.
First, I came across your blog the other day through A Cup of Jo. So much cuteness on here!

Second, the name of your blog is so adorable and I love your little profile. I can't really remember show and tell from my elementary days but I definitely wish I had it no! There's so much I always want to share with the world :)

Third, your name is so cute! Shoko Shoko Shoko Shoko. I just feel like saying it over and over and making a little dance to go with it. Hopefully you don't mind me asking what ethnicity are you/what language is your name from. It's just so fun and happy sounding! <3


Have an awesome day!

Alice, thank you so much! You are so sweet! To answer your question, my name is Japanese - my mom is from Japan :)

Erin Pauls said...

Oh! I love these!

Eleanor said...

Goodness, they are adorable! I am a mom so I totally envy your ability to carry something like this and ONLY this. I wouldn't trade motherhood for anything though. I'm sure I can justify needing one of these, like to organize my things IN the diaper bag. :)
