|Mulberry Handbag SS 2011|
Yesterday i was hanging with my girlfriends in a coffee shop. The discussion we were having was various (girls talk) and we ended up in bags. As a bagoholic i should know all the types of bags but when my friend ask me the difference between clutch and pochette, i wasn't sure about my answer...
I couldn't take it in so, i will dedicated a post to the types of bags.
A handbag, or purse is a handled medium-to-large bag and used to hold personal items such as wallet, keys, cosmetics, mobile phone.
A clutch is a medium-to-small-sized handbag with a short handle or without, designed to be carried (clutched) in one's hand (similar to a pocketbook).
A satchel, a soft-sided case usually of leather, used to carry papers or books, usually has a handle and often has a strap.

A tote, is a medium to large bag with two straps.
A pochette, is from the french word which means "little pocket" - is a pocket handbag or wallet. I am happy that i managed to satisfy my friend's curiosity, and mine too...
