I have to admit, I adore it when surprise elements are incorporated into clothing and accessories. This season, Kate Spade has hit a home run with her Wordsmith Dictionary Clutch! Designed to resemble a leather bound dictionary, this handbag will have you making a statement and outsmarting purse snatchers simultaneously.
I have always admired the Kate Spade book clutches from afar, but my inner nerd was completely drawn to her newest addition and subsequently pulled out the credit card to seal the deal.
In person, it is a beauty – from the rich brown leather exterior to the black and white striped interior. The frame closure guarantees structure and easy access, while the credit card slots and zipper pouch allows for organization of the minimal necessities one can fit into this bag.
The accompanying dustbag, engraved with a whimsical quote, is simply the icing on the cake.
And who says you can’t be book and street (style) smart?
