There’s never a better excuse to buy a new clutch than TIFF. After all, it’ll be the bag that’s clung to your arm, and won’t leave your side, for a solid 10 days straight. When else does a clutch get that much use, unless you’re a Kardashian sister?

The clutch to have, in this case, is a slim and elegant one made by a designer right here in Toronto. Ela’s M.I.L.C.K. clutch — that stands for Money, ID, Lipstick, Cell and Keys — is an understated beauty that comes in a shockwave array of colours in fine leathers and suede.

As the name states, it carries everything that you need for a night out on the town, and it’s slim enough to slip into your day bag, making the jump from home to work to party to film to party to bed to work and back again that much easier.

Ela M.I.L.C.K. clutch, $299-$328. Available at The Narwhal
