I’ve worn denim on denim with a print before and consider it a fairly reliable formula for casual wear. While everything about the combination is slightly trendy, denim is a great equalizer.

And in my ongoing effort to strap-ify wallets and clutches that are limited in versatility (remember when I added a chain to my wallet?), I’ve decided to add chains to inexpensive clutches (this process exploits shoddy workmanship) I’ve picked up in the last year. This method seems to work well and utilizes excess lobster clasps from my last project.

I’ll let these pictures illustrate the process; if they are unclear, leave a comment below and I’ll expound further (or add additional pictures where they are appropriate).
