Pleated Clutches for Bridesmaids by Lolos

This is why we love Lolos, a design shop which focuses on romantic handmade “pouches” your bridesmaids will love! These pleated clutches can be carried down the aisle on your wedding day, taken to girls’ night on the town, date night with her beau, or as a place to keep her jewelry safe + sound. We love the vibrant array of colors, particularly this purse in red which we think is perfect for winter weddings and the holiday season:
