A clutch purse never goes out of style. It can be used for a formal occasion. Or, it can be popped into a larger tote bag when going out for the day and come out later for use. Clutch purses are not meant to hold everything. Just what is needed for an afternoon or evening out: keys, wallet, ID card, compact, comb, lipstick and cellphone are enough.
When I lived in Bay Ridge, a neighbhorhood in Brooklyn, I frequented a craft shop that found a treasure trove of old crochet patterns in the basement of the shop. These pattern booklets were put in a large basket for customers to take . I was very fortunate to find ones that I really liked. Most of the booklets were from the 1970s. I went deeper into the basket and found 3 books. One from the 1960s and two from a period spanning 1940s-1950s.
