So what if clutches are barely big enough for lip gloss and need to nestle under your armpit: We embrace the occasional fussy accessory. Angela Ricci's handmade, sophisticated leather bags come in a variety of colors and styles, including a pretty pleated pouch and the evening-appropriate envelope variety. Brilliant bronzes, greens, pinks and silvers make these puppies pop — as do oh-so-sweet multicolor gingham and plaid linings. Ricci, a Philly-dweller since 1990 and a former student at Moore College of Art & Design, delivers them to Conspiracy Showroom for purchase in-store and online. Or you can check them out on Ricci's Web site, which also features her screenprinted tees and handcrafted pillows. Clutch, indeed, Ms. Ricci.
