This very funky purse is technically not a purse. It’s the Magazine Round Beauty Case from Lulu Guinness, a lovely product with a zip fastening and mirror inside for all your make up needs.
It’s a gorgeously retro, ’50′s inspired case that makes make up even more fun than it already is!
This very funky little purse is the Leather Oasis Hobo, from Isabella Fiore.
It’s a very edgy, vintage-ish bag, made from a soft creamy blue leather, with brass hardware.
I like the look of this bag because it has a very Mario Brother air to it – the colour, the studs, the gorgeous cartoony quality – it’s very fun.
And yet, still very adult and trendy boho chic…
We’re returning to classic, feminine Dior today with this purse.
It’s the Trotter Romantique Medium Frame Tote, a beautiful leather and canvas bag with silver hardware and zipper closure.
The style is very old-fashioned – especially the gorgeously vintage frame clasp. Design-wise, I haven’t seen a more clever purse in a while – it could so eaily have turned out old-ladyish and dull, with the bow and clasp and beigy colour.
But, this is Dior – and they’ve created a purse that is old-timey without being boring or dusty. There’s absolutely no reason a twenty-year-old girl couldn’t carry this purse – although there is a danger her grandmother might permanently borrow it!
Elegant and pretty, this is timeless, classic, feminine Dior for the summertime.
Coach have taken on of their most recognisable scarf prints and put in on a purse.
It’s called the Coach Hamptons Weekend Scarf Print Demi, a lovely fabric-print purse with a zip top and suede and leather trim.
Great for the summer, even if you are not going to be at the Hamptons this season!
It’s the Chloe Paddington again!
Yes, we have done this purse. More than once. But… we’ve never done the crocodile version!
Yes, this is the Paddington Croc Satchel, from the fine people at fashion powerhouse Chloe.
It’s a bronzey-brown leather purse with gold hardware and the classic Paddington padlock.
Forget the Paddington Lizard – the Paddington Croc is the new sweetheart in the Chloe lovenest!
It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for some Juicy Music.
This is the other of Juicy’s MP3 holders – a very bling, in your face leather case with gold chain, complete with heart charms and the signature ‘J’.
It also comes in pink – if you can find it, that is.
My far and away favourite thing about it this MP3 case is that it opens in front. It’s a small thing but makes a HUGE difference in terms of convenience.
Go get your Juicy!
As a nice change from the very ‘in-season’ bags floating around recently, we’re going to take a look at this hobo from Salvatore Ferragamo.
Just look at it – look at its size! It’s about a mediumish bag, perfect for daytime, just roomy enough to carry around all your essentials and still have room to spare.
What it isn’t is big enough to carry a toddler around in – unlike a lot of the purses this summer. Now don’t me wrong, I think the big-purse trend is rather fabulous – but now a lot of the big purses are so big that they are looking larger than the women carrying them!
So it’s something of a return to sanity with this purse – its a gorgeous leather bag with gold hardware and extremely beautiful craftsmanship.
Now, you may not be able to carry a Doberman around in it – but hey, you can’t have it all right?
How gorgeous is this purse from Christian Dior?
Don’t even answer that, I know what you’re thinking – it’s really, really gorgeous.
It’s not a pretty bag, or overly girly – instead, we have a lovely urban (yet very chic) handbag that is just perfect for girls who like their femininity understated.
It’s called the Rebel Leather and Suede Tote – and basically, it’s a tote made of – yep – leather and suede. But not any old leather, and not any old suede. It’s the butteriest of buttery calf skin leather, and the softest of soft suede. The front has the classic Dior buckle. The lining is also suede, with plenty of pockets and classic silver hardware.
It just comes back to that one word: gorgeous. A serious purse-lovers purse!
Seeing as super-huge bags are still very much in, let’s take a gander at this purse from Kooba.
It’s called the Ada Tote, a gorgeously worn-looking leather purse with brass hardware and a suede lining. The worn look of the leather gives it an almost vintage look, as if it’s been passed down from cool aunt to cool niece.
Delightfully roomy, slouchy, soft and funky, this purse is great for daytime – it’s so versatile that it pretty much goes with everything, be it school, work, gym, shopping, whatever.
