I've been looking for a new handbag and purse recently, so armed with a little bit of birthday money I got these treats at the weekend. I thought I would share these great items with you from Accessorize.
I wanted a small brown leather look bag that had a vintage feel to it, and this brown saddle bag seemed to tick all the boxes for style and practicality. This bag is bang on trend and I've seen lots of this kind of look in the glossy magazines like Vogue and Red magazine.
Of course leather would be nice but when you are on a budget these bags certainly imitate leather very well.
The size is perfect for all my handbag items, and believe me there a usually a few empty sweet packets from the kids, scrunched up tissues and a mountain of receipts in my bag. Simply for the fact that this bag is new, its looking pretty pristine for now. Its filled with my new purse, my favourite L'Occitane hand cream and lip balm, and my now much needed Joules glasses.
Can we just talk about that notebook? The print design was done by Davinder for Sainsbury's.
He works with a great team at Sainsbury's who transform his wonderful print designs into amazing product, there are many other items in this range in store now.
The other thing I really needed was a new purse, my old one was not great for storing small change and always seemed a bit of a fight to reach the pennies. Plus the card slot had stretched so much that my cards kept spilling out into my already messy bag. The purse needed plenty of card slots, a place to lay the notes flat, a good opening on the coin section and if at all possible a place to put my kids picture.
I wasn't concerned for it to match the bag, I always like to mix it up a bit. A bright purse is always easy to find in the depths of any bag, thats why I have never owned a black purse.
I am such a fan of this lovely Coral colour, and since it more than delivered on all my needs for a purse its the perfect choice. Its even got extra storage for all those little reward cards you get in coffee shops and the like.
This colour looks great against my new Liberty skirt posted on Mondays blog, if you missed it go check it out.
Have a great Wednesday
