Sometimes all you need is a really stand out handbag to make an outfit. I call this Topshop red ‘satchel’ bag my IT Bag, as it does just that. As much as I love small bags, when I go on my little adventures to London for the weekend or visiting my boyfriend I always like a bag that can hold lots of things.
Being a typical girl I must have everything but the kitchen sink in my bag. One being my Canon camera, I don’t have a traditional camera bag so I like to double up with my actual handbag. The bag itself is just one space, with a zip pocket and a thin bit where I think your phone can fit into (mine is permanently stuck in my hand). It has a long strap that can be removed so you can hold it with its traditional handle. When I have less in the bag this is how I like to hold it, the long strap gives it a little more security.
I adore the simple stud detailing on the handle and on the bottom/sides of the bag. The print of the lid of the bag is so chic, this is where most of the movement is, when you are reaching down to open it, the snakeskin print is rough and textured which hides and little nicks or scratches. I’d say this is something to look for when buying a bag as the last thing you can to see are loads of scratches from everyday use.
Do you have a go to ‘IT’ Bag? Would you go for a bright red like this or perhaps a petrol blue?
