Help! It’s been a few months now and I still can’t get my mind off these pretty pastel clutch bags from Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2014 ready-to-wear collection. I especially love the ombre ones!

From top: The Petal clutch bag, in embossed dégradé  leather, shown in White/Pale Grape, White/Light Mint, White/Bright Lemon. . The Petal in sheer vinyl with flowers, shown in Pale Lilac, Pale Cameo Pink and Light Turquoise. $1250, comes with a slim shoulder strap.


I made the mistake of clicking the “Recommended Products” link…. and now I need the cashmere knit cardigan, double angora and wool shell coat and an English lace trench coat, in pale lavender please.
