The one thing I like to spend a few more penny's on than anything else, is handbags. They're my weakness. (Alongside wine, chocolate and tango ice-blasts at the cinema obvs - but that's another story). I have had a few designer bags in my collection over the years, but I also have had some fabulous high-street handbags that have lasted SO well. I thought I'd put together my current 3 most used handbags. 2 Designer, 1 High Street.
Soho Leather Disco Bag
This little BEAUTY is the newest edition to my designer bag collection, and I think with-out taking the shine off the rest, that it's my favourite. It was a Christmas present from Richard, and I haven't taken it off since. I've done a full blog post on this bag here but I thought I would give you a quick run-down of why I love it so much. First of all the colour, I have always been a lover of black handbags, but something convinced me to pick this up in this stunning blush/tan colour and I already can't wait to use it this Spring. It looks stunning with so many colours and I am yet to find an outfit it doesn't match. Secondly and most importantly for me, is the size of the bag. It is the best sized bag I have ever owned. I call it my Mary Poppins bag! It fits SO much more than you would expect!! I can fit my iPhone 7 Plus, my cardholder, lipstick, compact mirror, chewing gums, my camera, keys and a lil' bit of space for some other bits and bobs!
I can't deny that I am eyeing up other colours (including black, I can't help myself) because I just know how much use I will get out of them!
Negatives: The light colour means it can mark fairly easily, and the back of the bag is already seeing a little bit of wear, where it has rubbed on my jeans.
Saint Laurent - Monogram Cross body Bag
Can we just take a moment to look at how gorgeous this bag is, it gives me all the heart eyed emojis everytime I see it. This is another bag I have done a full blog post on here, I managed to get my hands on it for a LOT less than retail price after working with Farfetch and them kindly sending me a lovely gift card for the site. This is very much an evening bag, although I have been known to show it off in my local Costa Coffee, if its a day when I don't need to carry too much. It has a removable silver chain strap which means the bag can be worn 3 ways, cross-body, shoulder or as a clutch bag. I also love the embossed Croc detail because it means that scratches/marks are less obvious, plus it is a little different to my usual soft leather bags. I get so much wear out of it, and I would say 9 out of 10 times that I go out in the evening, this would be the bag I'll be sporting. I can fit my phone, card wallet and a lipstick in this bag.
Negatives: Obviously it's quite a slim-lined bag and therefore you really can't carry a lot except the basics.
Zara Burgundy Small Tote
This ones a bit random, and I never really thought It would ever make its way onto my blog/social media, but I can't deny how much use I have got out of this Sale Zara bargain! I got it in the January sales for around £15.00 I think. It's a small sized bucket bag, which is a bit like my Gucci, in that its Mary Poppins. It can fit SO much more than it looks! The top handle makes it super cute to carry round, and the scarf around the handles adds a pop of colour to an outfit. I use this a lot when I travel for my on-plane bag. It has a kind of open top which means grabbing things in and out IE phone/passport is super easy (now I think about it, obviously this also makes it great for pick-pockets, oops). I love the colour, surprisingly as it isn't something I would normally go for, and I like the idea of adding the scarf to change the bag up a bit! I would also like to add that I have got SO much use out of this bag, and looking at it, you wouldn't even know it had been used! So it really does last well for such an affordable bag!
Negative: The scarf can get pretty annoying when it unravels itself! But we will let it off, because it looks pretty.
