Oh, I tell you… those nutcrackers yesterday and the holiday commercials on TV and the occasional oops Christmas song that comes up on my playlist (you know, on accident) has really gotten me in the holiday spirit. It’s early… I know, I know. But if you’re planning a winter or Christmas wedding, you’re obviously getting things ready NOW. Right? So when I spotted these red plaid clutch purses by Juneberry Stitches with just the cutest little ruffle I couldn’t keep them to myself. Can you blame me?

Red Plaid Clutch Purses

Tartan plaid — you know, the red Christmas-y kind — is obviously the best kind of plaid. Just look how cute it is!

I love the plaid fabric handle, too. And this is a wristlet clutch purse design, which makes it easy to carry + grab on the go.

EB TIP: Give a set of these plaid clutch purses to your bridesmaids as their thank you gift and then fill it with extra surprise gifts. For instance, a pair of earrings, a necklace, or chic nail polishes. (I’m currently obsessed with this for my nails and this as an accent. See? Told you I was already holiday-ready.)

You’ll want to order soon because these babies are custom-made. Check out the details here. Meghan is a sweetheart to work with, so you’re in terrific hands. And we’re pretty obsessed with her work over here.

Hi, there. Happy Thursday! I like to visit fashion blogs and Pinterest boards, getting the scoop for the latest + greatest fashion trends. But it drives me nuts when I see a gorgeous outfit pieced together with one specific item I want and it doesn’t mention where to get it. And then I Google it and I can’t find the item, or I do but it is SOLD OUT. Bummer. I know it happens: I’ve seen some Real Weddings with amazing bridesmaids dresses but sometimes you can’t find the original designer or bridesmaids picked them out themselves it’s nearly impossible to contact them to find out where they were from. Articles can suggest similar pieces all they want, but are they ever really close enough? Never! At least I don’t think so.

You can imagine my excitement, then, when I found the perfect boho bridesmaids dresses that I knew you would love, along with a link to buy them + tons of color options + an affordable price. If you are looking for ruffly, flowy, mismatched boho bridesmaids dresses and you want your bridesmaids to love you for a) being reasonable in price, b) letting them pick a favorite color, and c) narrowing this down today, then I’ve done my job. I just love these dresses and think you will, too.

Here’s the wedding where I spotted them (photo by Veronica Varos) and here are the dresses:

Here’s the link to the dress. It’s technically called a slip, and it may be considered a bit short to some, but we think they look great as is or paired with an underlay skirt, jacket or long cardi, boots, or tights… the possibilities are endless. After all, a boho themed wedding is all about no rules. Free spirited. Laid-back. And you can make it anything you want it to be.

Plus, if you order them all right now you can get Free Shipping Over $100 at FreePeople.com.

I’m thinking about the red one for myself to pair with tights and boots for fall + winter… what do you think? Do you like these?
