Free Endearment have updated their popular Dana Clutch for Spring 2012 and I was lucky enough to be sent one for review. You're lucky too, because you can enter to win a clutch or a wallet at the end of this post!


While the original Free Endearment Dana Clutch is a great stylish basic, the laser cut detail on the new version really adds more interest and excitement to the piece. I feel like it elevates it to a special occasion bag. Which is good for me, because I need outside pockets for keys/phone on an everyday bag. As you can see from the inside view, this has plenty of pockets and is larger than you might expect of a clutch. But with my (admittedly not small) makeup bag, wallet, keys and phone it's fairly full. If you were willing to forego wallet and makeup bag and utilize the pockets for those functions, you could certainly save some space and make this your regular purse.

This is of course what you want from a handbag line - a solid basic design and then updates that riff on the original design in new and interesting ways. A+ for the handmade, custom-tanned leather purveyor. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on them.

How can you win one?

Head over to Facebook and like the Catwalk Queen Facebook Page as well as the Free Endearment Facebook Page, and leave a comment on the Free Endearment page saying you saw the bags on CQ. Winners will be selected Friday, one to receive the Dana clutch and one to receive a wallet from Spring '12.
