    One Bag Three Ways With The Katherena Hollycroft Trunk

    If you’re a regular reader you know I like to do a little series called ‘one bag three ways’. I take a designer bag and style it with three different outfits to show how you can get the wear out of it. After all who wants to spend a fortune on something only to use it a couple of times? I have previously featured the Gucci Soho Disco, Saint Laurent Monogram,¬†and the Givenchy Antigona. Anyway, having looked back over the blog I realised I haven’t written one of these posts since October last year! Today’s post on the Katherena Hollycroft Trunk stems from discovering the brand in Velvet Magazine and…

    Feeling Like Part Of The Family At Winsor Bishop

    On Wednesday night I went along to an event at Winsor Bishop on Trinity Street in Cambridge with the Camb Meet Up bloggers. You may remember I visited the jewellers a couple of weeks ago and images from that event appeared in my post on busting myths around accessorising with jewellery. Winsor Bishop Winsor Bishop arrived in Cambridge just last year but this independent is something of an institution. The jewellers was actually established in 1834. Their store in Norwich sees generations of families as couples choose engagement rings, husbands buy gifts for wives on the birth of their first child, they return again for eternity rings etc the list…

    The Handbag Edit

    Aside from designer shoes I also love designer handbags. I always feel like you can get away with spending more on accessories as it doesn’t matter if you lose or gain weight, they will obviously still fit. My everyday handbag is starting to show wear and tear with the handles beginning to split, not bad going given that its lasted nearly three years – this wasn’t a designer purchase might I add. At this time of year I feel I can’t justify spending much money on myself and to be honest I tend not to so much now given that I am self employed. With this in mind I have…
