We came across this diamond in the rough at Forever 21 this weekend- TOTAL FIND!

As to avoid the pleather, we cut off the straps and turned this messenger into a clutch. There are metal studs on both sides of the fringed flap, giving this inexpensive item a touch of class (remember: don’t buy anything that only has detailing on one side- especially dresses with only front panel decor- AKA: a mullet dress).

Wear this piece out with a pair of skinny jeans, a slouchy t, black gladiators, and a messy ponytail. Think morning after/ moto chic.
