I’ve been itching to buy a new designer bag for summer, but I’ve also been tempted by the idea to buy something a bit more versatile, like a pouch. Especially with the clear plastic trend that’s so popular right now, buying a pouch can basically get you two looks for one—by wearing it on its own and inside a clear tote.
This Balenciaga pouch caught my eye because it’s a midly-affordable way to buy into the cult Balenciaga bags without spending a thousand dollars. It has the brand’s recognizable logo created by Demna Gvasalia, the typeface has a relevant political riff on the 2016 election, and it can fit everything from your phone, daily essentials and makeup. At $650 it’s a trendy clutch that won’t go out of style, and is worth all the coins I have left.
