Have you ever carried one of those cute and small clutch purses with you to a wedding, party or other fun social event? They are so fabulous and really provide a stylish accent to an evening look. One exception -- if you have a severe nut allergy like myself, you likely already know that a small purse and a nut allergy simply don't go together.

I would love to accessorize my evening looks with a fun, small clutch purse. Instead, I'm forced to choose a larger bag because of my nut allergy. In a mini 'What's In My Purse' video above, I share with you the clunky items that cramp my style that I need to carry with me at all times.

Do you have a nut allergy? How has it cramped your style?

I hope this blog post inspires you to wear your authenticity!
