Handbags and Glad Rags

The past few days have been a real whirlwind of spa treatments, cocktails and excellent company. With Honey Pop's birthday this week we had to celebrate in style. From champagne at the Scottish Fashion Network to an afternoon getting pampered at the Blythswood, this week's been pretty peachy keen. We wrapped the whole thing off last night by heading to the Dhabba for dinner, but not before heading to Benefit to try the new They're Real Eyeliner (which I of course applied with a heavy hand.)

Jacket - Vintage and as old as time
Top - Primark
Belt - Primark
Skirt - River Island
Shoes - H&M
Bag - Lulu Guinness

I've been coming towards the painful realisation it's time I invest in a new big bag. My Lulu Guinness heart tote has been with me years and has gone through the wars. It's more than starting to show. From loading it with text books to using it as a grocery bag, it's been my default bag for a reason. It's the perfect size and it's served me SO well. However it's now wearing away at the bottom and looking worse for wear. It's certainly not looking better with age that's for sure. I mean, I'm going to keep a hold of it till it's essentially in tatters, but until then, my hunt for THE ONE begins. Every woman has one. What's been your go to "big bag"?



  1. Loving that skirt, especially matched with the belt. Great look!

    I feel your pain with the big bag situation. My go to bag has recently bitten the dust due to an unfortunate pear incident. I have since been trying to fit all my crap into prettier but less sizable affairs until I can find a replacement.


    1. An unfortunate pear incident? Now there's a story!

      Also cheers - bought the skirt ages ago and this was it's first (overdue) outing. Won't leave it as long next time! x

  2. Love the print on your skirt and it goes so perfectly with your bag and denim jacket <3
