I do already own two bags that are large enough for plenty of storage and essentials. For my birthday this year back in March my parents bought me a large iBlues (famous Italian label) bag I had seen in a small boutique near to my house. I had (they had I mean) purchased it as it seemed to tick the 70's colour block trend that was rocking the SS catwalks. It's the most delicious egg yolk shade and reminds me of having deviled eggs and sparkling wine in disposable cups in a daisy field at the height of summer. It also has several front pockets which are great for keeping your lippy and eyeliner in (although in the picture below this is the view from the other side). The handle is also comfortable. This bag also has the added benefit of the 70's colour blocking trend continuing through the AW season and is also in the style of snake/crocodile print (another big trend for the oncoming season).
I also purchased at the beginning of the year via the genius that is theoutnet.com a Vivienne Westwood tartan bag it is definitely large enough to carry most of my bits and bobs and the print is really rocking the heritage theme gracing everywhere from Salvatore Ferragamo, to Burberry, Cacharel and House of Holland. The problem I have with this bag as opposed to other VW bags is the logo it's splashed all over the front and whilst no one should be ashamed of having a VW bag I am in two minds as I really do not like large logos unless it's something that is so in your face in an obvious sort of ironic kind of way...which I guess it is. Maybe it was one of those ideas that seemed really good at the time.
Who knew choosing a bag could be so bloody difficult!
