I like my sleek chic bags with the fancy gold detailing or the edgy chain, but you really need something that can go out in the wild with you, to explore the world and experience new adventures, without having to worry about it getting a few scratches and losing its elegance. I found mine and now it's time to share it.
I need to start updating you lot a little more about what goes on with me. Yesterday James picked up his new passport and we're already planning a few trips around Europe! So far we got Belgrade booked, to visit some of my family there (yes, I'm half Serbian, in case you didn't know). I also have a trip booked to Orlando with my mum early next year which I'm so SO excited about. You should probably expect a variety of posts including travel here on Creepers and Cupcakes.
Anyway, I'm a bit of a handbag collector and I pretty much live for my designers - when I can afford them. I tend to stick on the "lower" end of the pyramid with DKNY, Michael Kors, Rebecca Minkoff and so on.
I was thinking though, everyone NEEDS a small handbag to carry in all their essentials when globe trotting (or running day to day errands for that matter), but it has to be something a little more simple, understated yet easy to match to most outfits.
Personally, when I travel, you certainly won't see me wearing anything fancy, since I like to get my hands dirty, so it would be a little stressful to carry say, a Donna Karan bag, knowing that it may get damaged and break my heart. I found this gorgeous number by Cut Make Trim which was PERFECT for me. The model is called Tammy but I named her Julie (ahem, I'm a bit of a massive SincerelyJules fan..).
Each bag is individually hand made in London and it features a push lock under the buckle for quick access. As much as it may seem small, I can fit all my necessities in there, including my Olympus Pen! The quality of the bag is impeccable and by the way it looks, it certainly will never lose its charm, even with years to come. It's definitely going to be one of these staples in my wardrobe that time makes even more perfect and gives extra personality and history to it. I can't wait to see what lands we'll explore together.
If you're not into black like I am, the model comes in a variety of colours you can pick from. I'm pretty much obsessed with it and I can honestly recommend it to everyone. Inside you also have a zipped compartment, where I usually store my debit card and ID .
Do you have a current perfect every day bag?
