Some days you don't want to be weighed down by a textbook-laden tote bag or backpack. For weekend errands or dinner-and-movie nights with friends, we love grabbing a clutch and going out the door.

The Etsy shop ToonDesign (go to and search for ToonDesign) has some adorable-looking and affordable options.

The medium frame purses ($12, $13) look perfect for a cell phone, lip gloss and keys -- the essentials. Or maybe they can double as chic pencil/pen bags. The small frame purse ($7) could keep your change from forming in a pool at the bottom of a bigger bag.

From bright and funky to simple and classic, there are many fabrics to choose from. Our picks: -- Metro de Paris, Roses in raspberry, Pearl bracelet in pond.
