Little Black Bag

You may or may not be aware that I’m on the hunt for a ‘Happy 25th Birthday to Me’ present. My first thought was obviously a handbag… cause you know… I love them. I’m looking for a replacement for a Bershka crossbody black bag that I’ve had for a couple of years. Style-wise it’s similar to the Celine trio, so has the 3 compartments, lots of storage = winner, but it’s quite tatty now, covered in random drink splodges from various night outs, and has seen better days – time for a new one!

My plan was to spend some of my left over Christmas money (a round of applause please.. I managed to save money!) and treat myself to a new designer bag, but life get’s in the way and my budget has reduced a tad… so I’m now looking at higher end high street – basically, quality rather than the designer label.

I thought I’d share my ‘short’ list – I say ‘short’ cause it’s completely the opposite… there’s soooo many beautiful bags around at the moment! I’m looking for something that can be dressed up or down, my day to day style is very casual, so it needs to be versatile. It also needs to be able to fit an Iphone 7 plus in… harder than you think! I’m due an upgrade in July so I need to make sure my new bag will last longer than 2 months when it would become un-usable because of my giant phone.

Which do you think I should go for? Have you seen any I should add to my ever-growing list?

    Oooo…. So many great options here! I love a little black bag! I am searching for a new daily use camera bag, and opting for a black, messenger style/crossbody bag…. So many options, how does one decide?
