My Handbag Collection

Sunday, 28 June 2015

Following on from my My Statement Necklace Collection post a few months back, this time I'm giving you a sneak peek at my handbag collection.  As you can see, I do love me a mini satchel.

I've also filmed a video to go alongside this if you prefer to see a moving version!

Ahhh, my Topshop January sales bargain that I featured in this haul.  It's no exaggeration to say that I've used every day for work since the Christmas holidays.  It's the perfect work bag - plenty room, sturdy, and nice and classic.  

You can't go wrong with a tan bag, and this mini scalloped satchel from ASOS is an absolute beauty.  I love it so much!

Another stunning mini satchel from ASOS - I've featured it in an OOTD here.  The sweet pastel blue/lilac colour is so pretty, and it looks great with so many outfits.  I accidentally bought 2 at the time so gifted one to my pal Jemma - sharing the mini satchel love!

A bright neon coral number from New Look.  I wore this to a wedding a couple of years ago (OOTD here) and it was the perfect compliment to my blue & coral outfit.

I was really into my neons last summer and snapped up this acid yellow bag in Primark after seeing it in a few haul videos.  I haven't used it in a while as I'm kind of over the whole neon thing now, but as we're coming into summer I might dust it off and start using it again.

My most recent purchase - I picked this up in the New Look sale the other week as a bit of an impulse buy.  I've got a bright blue pair of jeggings that I wear quite often so this goes really nicely with those and I'll probably get a lot of use out of it in the coming months.

Another one of my most worn bags - this has been my go-to "going out" bag for the last couple of years.  If I'm wearing an outfit that doesn't have a colour in it matching one of my bags then I resort to my one and only small black bag - this Primark number.

From one of my most used bags to my least used!  I treated myself to this Fiorelli sparker about 6 years ago to wear to a Christmas party and unfortunately it was the one and only time I used it.  I love the bag, but it just doesn't go with anything I've worn since.  I might try find a navy dress for this years' Christmas do so I can use it again.

This New Look clutch was a birthday gift from my future mother & sister in law.  I love the pinky tones, and it will look great on a night out with the girls (I'm thinking black skinny jeans, a white top, sandals, and pink/rose gold jewellery).

For ages this was my go-to work bag - I got it from Oliver Bonas a few summers ago and it has served me well.  It's got so much room!!  I can even fit my laptop in it.  As I've become obsessed with my Topshop satchel though this has been relegated to my wardrobe, much like the next 4 bags...

This Primark slouchy pink satchel was my day-to-day bag of choice for a few months a couple of years ago.  It is a bit grubby now, so could probably do with a wipe down - but I might start to use again in the summer with my more pastel-y outfits.

A few years ago ASOS brought out a mint bowling bag with a gold bunny on it and I completely fell in love, but unfortunately it sold out super quick so I missed out.  They later added an owl version so I snapped it up as soon as I saw it.  Again, this was my go-to bag for quite a few months but then it got replaced by someone new and now lives in my wardrobe with the other exes.

This New Look bag was my day-to-day up until Christmas (when my Topshop satchel came into my life).  I love the mint "wings" at the side as it stops it being too plain.  It's also a really decent size and has a couple of compartments on the inside.  

Doing this post has made me rediscover so many of my old favourites - I think it might be time to give my black Topshop satchel a bit of time off and let my classics have some of the limelight again.  Which would you suggest I bring back first??
