Can You Guess My Favourite Accessory? 

Every now and then I can’t help but dream about luxury bags. I’m quite an easy pleased lady when it comes to clothing; I always feel right at home in even the grubbiest of thrift stores. But every now and then, I stumble upon bags which make my eyes widen in delight. Even when I was a child, I had a thing for bags. I would cart around my plush Minnie Mouse backpack, full of marbles, rainbow pipecleaners, coloured pencils, paper, you know – all of the essentials! Today, not much has changed. I still take a bag wherever I go, and even nowadays it is full to bursting point! Accessorizing has never really been my thing; but a nice fancy bag just does it for me.

Lately, Marc Jacobs has had me completely captivated. They have been producing the most incredible goodies; I never thought a girl could fall in love so many times! Quilted fabrics, bowling shapes, chain straps; they’re all wonderful! My seven year old self may still have chosen good ol’ Minnie, but my current self is slightly more keen on Marc’s creations! I’ve pretty much spent my entire weekend browsing Marc Jacobs at farfetch.com, especially as I’ve been nursing not one, but two head injuries (the result of closing the car door on my own forehead – twice!) I definitely have a few favourites added to my wishlist – oh, quilted shoulder bag! P.s. Here are some of my go-to bags! Lovely!

  2. Aww! I also love bags – they are the greatest accessory. I think it’s so great that our inner child is usually with us all the time. Today I’m always wearing short socks with my brogues and summery dresses and then I found a photo of myself when I was nine years old and wearing sort of the same outfit. I’m glad it’s the same with you and bags :) I really like the bags featured in this post, especially the brown portfolio! ♥ xx

  3. I really love that satchel!
    Also, I have to ask how exactly do you close the car door on your forehead?! That sounds so painful!

    • I shut the door as I bent to pick something up! I don’t know quite how I pulled it off really! But it is so painful – and have a big egg-shaped lump on my forehead! I’ve definitely gotten some funny looks today ; ) x

  4. Hey there! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I’ve been trying to figure out how to follow your’s, but I can’t seem to find the “follow” button – Shucks :/ Anyway, I love bags, too. But I am very picky, and when it comes down to it, lazy to switch out bags. I really love that deep brown leather one in this post! Awesome blog!

  6. Ahhh, we share a weakness. I, too, love bags. I have always carried a purse, roomy enough for STUFF, and then sometimes, too, love to have an extra bag or tote — has to be pretty, maybe even with a flower pinned on it — for magazine, snack, or whatever. Love the pictures today.
