Move over monotony, a pop of lips and x’s are in your future. Or your future spring wardrobe that is. Because color block is all great but x’s are better. And the fact that it fits two diapers? Bonus. Inspired by bold over the top shades of monochrome and pink, Ann Howell of Ann Howell Designs, (and oldest of six!) likes to design everything from the stitch up. Meaning, all her clutches are hand painted and stitched. If you have an all neutral or all black situation on repeat, why not a pop of lipstick clutch or x’s to bring your outfit from ho-hum to gosh, I need that bag? Because sometimes forging the style balance is as uncomplicated as that, a balance of monochrome and a pop of color. It’s that simple. See more of her handmade creations here.
