Some wear their heart on their sleeves, but last night, Kerry Washington carried hers in her clutch (or more accurately, slung across her body). The star hopped from the Jennifer Meyer xo Jessica Alba launch to The Limited x Scandal shopping event in a playful black-and-white polka-dot Dolce & Gabbana frock (that topped our best-dressed list today), with printed Sophia Webster pumps. But the real scene-stealer? The incredibly fanciful Roger Vivier mini buckle piece ($1,150; scrawled with the word "love" and stamped with a heart from the "T-Shirt Love" collection.

Needless to say, we're enthralled—and just in time for Valentine's Day too. We took inspiration from Washington and rounded up clutches we heart that work for Feb. 14 (and beyond) and make good on the love motif. From traditional heart shapes to quirky off-beat embroidery, get a grip on our nine cupid-approved picks below.
