Fast forward to 1:53. The pregnant woman in the blue dress with the white pocketbook.

Have a look at this. There are heaps on this site but some of them are a bit glittery or satiny.

Anyway, there are lots of similar bags here and at reasonable prices. It shouldn’t be hard to find a clutch bag similar to the one in the film.

Google clutches in the material you want and shop away.

They used to be called “clutches” or “envelop” bags; I thought that they were ugly and inconvenient then, and I still do. After clutching it for an hour, you will be looking for a shoulder strap.

That kind of purse is called an envelope clutch. Google that and you will find plenty of them.

If you’re not in a rush to find one and are hoping to find one that isn’t too pricy, I really recommend checking out any second-hand stores in your area. I’ve seen quite a few similar to that, though you may have to hunt around a bit to find the material/colour you want. Especially if there are any ‘vintage’ second-hand shops around. A bit more expensive probably, but it’s more likely that you’ll find one of a similar style.

Oh and if you haven’t already tried, etsy! Online, huge selection of stuff. Just search under ‘vintage’ for an envelope clutch.

Had I but known. We cleared out several dozen old-fashioned real leather handbags from my mother’s closet after she died in late May.

Each one still had its one little change purse and a mirror in a soft case.

We were too exhausted and too overwhelmed with details to thing about possible ways of finding them a new home and making some money as well.
