Take it out, hug it, cuddle it; you can do whatever you want with the humble handbag… they’re pretty special and we’d be lost without them!
Other than diamonds, bags are most definitely a girl’s best friend. We find it is impossible to leave the house without the right bag (and of course it has to match with what you’re wearing too) and you don’t care if the house is a mess, or the fact you’ve been rummaging around at least 20 minutes to find the right style of bag. No, it has to be just right.
Bags must also suit your mood too or where you plan to go that day. I love a good spacious handbag as I cannot be dealing with a miniature bag that is about the size of my hand. They might be pretty yes, but for practical daily use; small bags are a big no-no. That’s why I’ve picked these three bags as for one they are good to use day in day out and two; they’re stylish and full of sophistication. Go wild!
The Spacious (yet pretty) Bag
This ‘Classic Italian’ bag just oozes vibrancy and class. The design itself is unique and the material is luxurious leather. The 50s feel about the bag compliments the era nicely and shows a great style statement. If you’re adventurous and like to try new things with your style, this is a great bag to showcase this. The strap itself can be worn over the arm or shoulder, so not only is it beautiful leather but its practical for a busy day ahead too. For upcoming trends, this type of bag is great to show off all summer. It looks and will feel great, why not make a new statement today?
The Clutch Bag
The clutch bag is a fantastic item to put your things in ready for a night out. There are hundreds of bags you can choose from depending on your colour and taste. However this unusual and unique bag stood out to me as the soft cream leather has been hand dyed. Tie-dye may be in season just in time for festival happenings; however this is a new and special crafted dye. The gorgeous texture very much is one of a kind, I have seen hand crafted bags in Oxford Street Topshop but no handmade bags quite compare to this Karrah design. You may be a little mislead by not thinking there is no handle to put on your shoulder. However there are magnetic press studs which fasten the bag together, but not only that, the studs are lined with a fresh mint green colour which is definitely hot right now for the season. This bag is great for a dinner party, house party or a night on the town. With this number I can guarantee everyone will ask you where you got it.
I think it is safe to say your bag collection would not be complete without a weekender. For short trips abroad or a weekend away with the girls, the classic weekender is without a doubt brilliant for light weight travelling. This particularly showed off to me as the leather trim handles are a great and practical shape to carry with you everywhere. Not only is it just a terrific weekend bag, it also folds easy into 3 parts. For example, it can be used as a travel set if you get the matching clutch. Great right? The clutch can be used for a dinner out or to keep your extra make up goods in. The material is a gorgeous mustard colour, therefore it is easy to wash. This clutch bag is made in England too, you’ll most definitely enjoy your weekend with these beauties.
