Green Clutch (Forever 21 Classic Midsize Faux Leather Clutch)November 25, 2013
What they don't know is that I am simply too much of a Scrooge to allow my merchandise credit to go unused. It's a two-year campaign that may finally see the end of its run by year-end, owing not to my initial suspicion that inflation will eventually render my credit worthless but to the diversification in quality of Forever 21 styles (which motivates me to actually keep things).
Take this clutch for example. I was surprised by how non-inexpensive looking it is in person. I wouldn't go so far as to say it looks expensive but it really doesn't scream "I-COME-FROM-FOREVER-21!"

Polyurethane is a popular material among retailers for constructing cheaper handbags and accessories but I do not find the clutch to be inexpensive-looking. Some reviewers also mentioned an unpleasant chemical smell but I did not experience this issue with the two clutches I received; in my experience, that smell normally goes away if you let the item "breathe" for a few days.
This oversized clutch comfortably holds my long wallet, this clutch filled to capacity, an iPad, and keys.
Forever 21 also has a few other clutches and pouches in various sizes and finishes if you would like more choices. Find others here, here, here, here, and here.
