    Time to Think About Mother’s Day Gift – PaulyJen Belt Bag is The Clutch Re-imagined

    I know everyone is very upset to be quarantined for over a month already. But I think it is the time to rethink what we really care in our life when we can’t go to bars, we can’t go shopping, as well as no traveling. I would say it is family – what we need cherish the most. Wishing your family healthy, happy and to be loved. As this year’s Mother’s Day is coming, it is never too early to think about a lovely gift idea for the person who gives you life, raised you up and always there for you.

    Let me introduce you a great Mother’s Day gift – a stylish and effortless belt bag. PaulyJen™ “The Clutch Re-Imagined” latest luxury fashion trend, it’s like no other brand out there, it is chic, timeless and functional. It’s the modern day fanny pack that can be worn multiple ways! One of the favorite features about the belt bag is the functionality of the snaps on the back of the bag that allows for versatility and convenience.

    Wear your PaulyJen belt bag on your hip, as a cross body, with your own belt or toss it in your tote or use it as a clutch.

    • To wear it as a crossbody: Just pull the strap and lengthen it all way.
    • To wear it around your waist: Shorten the strap to your liking and then pinch the end to fit into the leather keeper to hold down the extra fabric or leather.
    • To use as a clutch: Easy, just pull out the belt, not necessary to unsnap (prolong the life of the snaps.)
    • To wear it with your own belt: The snaps are there for you to use primarily as a functional feature to use so you don’t have to take off your belt.

    Make sure the bag is snapped when in use, if not and you bend over, your items may fall out.


    One of the most beautiful things about leather is that it’s unique. No two hides are alike. It’s a natural product with each having its own characteristics. Leathers will have some minor imperfections which adds beauty to your PaulyJen purchase. 

    Grace & Grit for classic mom:

    Black Pebbled Leather Belt Bag with Black or Camo Interior

    Interior: Black lined textile, leather credit card holder and zippered interior pocket.

The leather belts are made with the finest leathers and craftsmanship designed to contour to your body.
    PaulyJen wants you to wear your bag the way you see fit. Belt bags with options allows you to wear this belt bag four different ways.
