When I saw Moda Operandi was having a trunk show for Clare Vivier, I was so excited. I first received a Vivier clutch as a Christmas gift the year before, and I really enjoy it for going to casual parties or even running errands. I was looking to grab another, but the right time didn't present itself until now. Absolutely love paying half and half to preorder from M'O's trunk shows!

This particular clutch struck me as the perfect preppy summer piece for my collection (plus, I really dig the red, white, and blue). In this sale, this style was customizable with initials. I was very excited to receive this just in time for the summer.

I used this clutch as a way to carry my essentials to the pool and for playing tennis on my most recent beach vacation. It was simply perfect and easy to put everything into the clutch and go. I wasn't nervous that I would be overstuffing it (keeping things as flat as possible, of course). It can easily fit wallet (preferably small card case as to not stretch the clutch), sunglasses, iPad mini, gum, and tissues.

One can really tell the quality behind the clutches by Vivier. Not only did it smell *amazing* upon receiving, but the material surprised me. I had this around water and also on the sandy tennis court, and it was very resilient. Looking forward to using this all summer!
