I’m utterly besotted with my new leather jacket that I got for Christmas. To the point that it has barely left my back since I was given it. The only problem, I didn’t have a bag that went with my new jacket. I’ve become obsessed with mini bags recently – the smaller, the better – as they mean I carry less with me and end up less tired and achy. But all of my mini bags were brown and tan which didn’t really go with my black leather jacket. So, I hit the sales to find a suitable new bag. Accessorize has fast become one of my favourite stores in the past year, so I headed there. And I was in luck. The Accessorize sale came up with a few options – so I bought two!
The first is this three section bag, above. It’s actually three bags in one. It pops together to create a three section bag and pops apart to create a one section bag and a two section bag. All three bags can either have a strap to be used across-body or as handheld clutches.
The second bag is a real leather, leopard print bag which, again, had a detachable cross-body strap:
It seems I’m not alone in my desire for a mini bag this season as the stores are full of them:
- This zip around leather mini bag by Warehouse comes in three colours (including my favourite – black!). It’s a steal at less than £40!
- I’ve featured this Gap leather saddle bag in another post already – totally lusting over this (maybe putting it on my birthday list – for a few months time!).
- Finally, Accessorize have released their leather collection and this mini black bag is a hit with fashion bloggers already – spotted here over on The Frugality.
Are you down sizing your hand luggage this season?
