Jacobs, stop tempting me: this time – the Bianca Jane bag

God damn you Marc Jacobs and your ridiculously amazing bag designs. This time I’m seriously tempted by the Bianca Jane on a Chain messenger clutch bag.

It’s £220 so nearly affordable. If I start saving now.


Bag upgrade

My usual work bag – a vintage 70s messenger one – fell apart last night, a real shame, it was big and roomy and perfect for all the crap I carry around. But meet its replacement, this yellow vintage satchel. It’s much smaller and has forced me to dump things I don’t really need. I’m sure my back and shoulders will thank me.


I really love these miniature Liberty Print suitcases (£60), which, sadly, have been out of stock for ages. Otherwise one might have landed under my Christmas Tree.

New obsession: Mysuelly

Oh those French know how to make bags. Point in case: new label Mysuelly. Not my kind of budget but this has so far not stopped me from hanging out in  Urban Outfitters where they are stocked, pretending I own one.

Bag lady

I need a new bag. One big enough to lug all my random crap around when I go to work. My current work bag is a vintage satchel so I’d like to get something different this time. Perhaps this black and white one from Orla Kiely (£210)?

Or perhaps this tapestry one from Topshop (£30)? More my price range… I have been looking for vintage bags too of course, but can’t seem to find one that’s big enough and not a satchel.

Just bought: vintage Sixties travel case

I found this red Sixties case at the Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair last week. A bargain for £15!

Tres belle indeed

I’ve always loved BoBelle’s amazing bags & purses. They are both eco-friendly and ethical – still a rarity even these days. The new range is out now, and the Melissa eal skin handbag (£115.00) is on top of my wish list.
