This cheeky message clutch at Adams Morgan's Violet Boutique makes a statement. And there are several ways you can wear the $53 bag. Violet Boutique's Julie Egermayer writes:
We love this bag because of it's versatility. You can make it chic or casual depending on your outfit. Wear it as a clutch with the "LOVE" handle, or attach the straps for a cross-body bag!
