Last week a new bag rolled into town and since instagramming it last weekend, it’s become almost as popular as my sunglasses – and boy are they asked about! There’s no better way of christening a new bag than spilling out it’s contents in the most “neatly messy” way and whipping the ol’ camera out, so without further ado…
I picked this beaut up from Urban Outfitters recently and it was pretty much love at first sight. A neon pinky orange with gold chain and zip detailing for £20. What could be better? Well, actually it does get better – it’s big enough carry out three different functions. Function 1) An every day “just nipping to the shops” kinda bag, function 2) A clutch bag and function 3) a GIANT makeup bag! I use it for the latter when late for work and taking my Zara City bag, it fits nicely into one of the outer pockets. Perfec! So there you have it, my American Apparel-esk clutch for a third of the price.
My little card holder from Cath Kidston goes with me everywhere so I don’t loose my train tickets – it has happened and it was sad times. It’s so handy for when you’re carrying a non Zara bag too as they usually have the little card-sized pocket in them. It also works on a night out too if you don’t like taking a massive purse to hold your ID and cards in – so basically this and the clutch were just made for each other!
These babys are asked about in every Instagram photo without fail. I don’t know what it is, but people seem to love them. They’re from ASOS, so everyone assumes they’re expensive but they only cost £12. Hardly bank breaking! I love them so much and keep them in a case at all times to avoid breaks and scratches – both regular occurrences with most of my possessions.
My purse is an oldie from Topshop – I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and we haven’t been parted since. It’s a little chunky, but just feels very luxurious and matches most of my bags nicely (black and gold is the general theme running through most of my bags).
Aside from the essentials, I also like to throw in the Simple Moisture Mist and Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter (in the shade Nude) for touch ups here and there. Naturally the iPhone is in there too – how else would I show you what I’m having for lunch?
