I’d like a new handbag…

Actually I really would and I’m not really a bag girl. I do covet many things but I get to live vicariously through my shoots and everyday experiences as a fashion stylist. So oddly enough I don’t feel a great need to own a great many things, but I do seem to need a new handbag this winter.

I have 4 bags: a Belen Enchandia bag – which is well-loved, a Prada backpack & evening bag and a wonderful green handbag which was great for summer from Elisa Atheniense. I’m not one of those girls who changes on a regular basis: I’m in awe of the girl who does. I hate changing bags frequently as I always forget to put something I need into the new bag. I think Oh, I don’t need the tape measure today or the double sided tape or my tide pen and then of course I do need it.

A bag to covet:

I saw this lovely bag at Selfridges: Balenciaga‘s Cherche Midi Chain Link in green with beige and black. I always think I should buy a lovely black bag but it’s always a coloured handbag that catches my eye. Though the is bag not quite me I’m partial to the deep green colour. I generally like to own things by designers that I’ve met or know quite well. Clothing on some levels is very intimate to me –  it has to have some meaning – a certain je ne sais pas. Anyway I’m loving purple at the moment.

I like this Belen Enchandia bag and the Notting Hill Design Python Bag. I wear quite a bit of black and purple would be a great accent colour.

    I’m no good I’m all for the bags – I love them but I’m quite a mulberry girl now with all their gorgeous new designs and bright colours. Not buying though! Get them all!
