My friend, Maggie, was complaining about what an animal she is when it comes to snacking at weddings. She won’t let a plate of hor d’oeuvres go by her. I personally think that weddings are depressing gatherings designed to make single people feel bad about themselves, so I’d say, “Eat all you want. You’re a trooper for just being there!”
Maggie’s sister, however, recommended the clutch diet.

It decreases hand-to-mouth intake by at least a half. It sounded ridiculous, but the girls at a Weight-Watchers-like establishment across the street swore by it.
Whether or not the clutch diet actually works, clutches are the must-have accessory of the season. They add a little glamor to every outfit, and you can be as colorful as you want and still look classy. Here are some of my favorite picks:
