Remember a few months back, when suddenly every single blogger was snapped with a shiny little Chloe Drew number? I sure do, and I can tell you I drooled over pretty much all the photos in their various different colours and glittering hardware. It’s something of a wanderlust product for me as I can never even imagine spending that amount of money on a little bag. My bank balance would never ever forgive me, despite how lovely the purchase may look hanging on my arm or in pride of place in my wardrobe.
A plus point of the little Drew baby is the sheer size of it. I’m a girl who carries pretty much everything you could possibly need for the day, plus extras and anything I might pick up while out and about. That’s a whole lotta stuff. Consequently I normally carry a much larger bag to accommodate this.
Instead of dropping a whole lotta dollar on the designer version I have found the perfect new little addition to my accessory collection. Not only did it come in at an incredible fraction of the Chloe price but has also taken a lot of strain off my shoulders too. The little beaut is from Accessorize and is such an all-rounder of a bag, in such a lovely deep red colour and gold hardware – it will just go with so many things. I can’t wait for spring to arrive so I can match it with a pair of skinny jeans, a blue and white strippy tee and leather jacket, some sneaks and probably a nice red lip to. Ah that’s basically the weekend outfit of my dreams.
Here’s to hoping the sun breaks through in the next few months and can make the OOTD dream a reality, until then I’ll just try not to revert back to my back-breaking handbag habits.
