This weeks' installment of TGIF - get ready to shop, shop, shop is inspired by my love of bags :) Infact I recently purchased one from bayanhippo after weeks and weeks of "window" shopping (which is ALWAYS fun ;) ) and a couple more weeks of deciding which one I loved the best. I finally decided on one of course, but it is my goal with this post to make that job easier for you - my readers! So I have picked a small selection of great bags in several different styles and hopefully you find one you love :) Have fun!!!
Flat Bottom Firm Frame purse by JPATPURSES in Blooms on Black. Every one needs a change purse to tuck into thier shoulder bag, and sure maybe nobody will see it, but that doesn't mean you can't get a really cute one! I love these little frame purses by JPATPURSES - and they come in several different sizes and fabric prints. With so much choice you'll be sure to find one you love too, and maybe you'll even pull it out of your bag more often just to show it off ;)
Embroidered Wallet - Sage Branches on brown by LBaccessories. I love this wallet! Great colour combination, great fabric choice (linen), lots of pockets inside to hold all your cards and money, and I especially love the embroidery on the outside. One of the things I always look for when I am deciding on a bag/wallet purchase are these kinds of details - they make the item feel a little more personalised and thats always a great thing!
LOVEE Messenger, dark blue and red canvas with hearts by sineminugur . If you are looking for a roomy bag with an adjustable strap in a fun print - this is the one for you!!! Its got pockets for organisation, sturdy fabric so you can carry items that are little bit heavier, and a magnetic snap closure under the top flap keeps it all inside! ***psst! this is one of the bags I almost bought ;)
Large Vegan Weekender in Brick and Butternut by pansymaiden is the one for you! There are a ton of pockets, a key fob, and a large zippered pocket on the exterior of the bag, as well as the two deep "hoodie" pockets on the front of the bag for organisation. This bag also comes a variety of colours and there is also a detachable shoulder strap.
The Black and Cream Leather Doctor Bag with Dipper Bird by bonspielcreation has been on my "bag radar" for ages! I love the shape, the lining, the colour, and of course the screenprint of the Dipper Bird on the front - truly unique! There is also a wide assortment of smaller leather accessories in the shop, including wallets and card holders, and all are screenprinted with cute little pictures. You need to check out this shop!
Raspberry Chocolate Cake - 8 inch Silk lined Frame Clutch Bag by DavieandChiyo . The clutch is made with dupioni silk (inside and out) and then is embroidered with this beautiful bright pink flower. It also features a detachable ribbon laced chain. This great little clutch is very versatile and would compliment many different outfits!
Purple ume clutch purse by theprinttree is a 9"x5.5" zippered clutch made with a lovely japanese designer fabric and features a fabric covered button for decoration. It will hold all your essentials for a night out, but because it is made of cotton there is no worrying about ruining a fancy silk purse! These fabulous little clutches come in a wide variety of fabric choices - good luck trying to choose just one ;)
Happy shopping :) Until next time Kim XO.

This weeks Wishlist Tuesday post is about dressing up your walls! If you have been reading this blog awhile you would know that we recently moved into a new house - so I have been really drawn to bright, colourful, original, and of course handmade works of art :) I don't discriminate either, I like photography, paintings, collages, prints... so here is a selection that I am particularly drawn to. Enjoy! As always, until next time, Kim XO.
