Move over Tote –This Season’s Bag is Small, Ladylike and oh so Versatile

As a handbag addict I have a cupboard full of tote bags, don’t we all?  But recently I’ve become weary of carrying my world – literally – on one shoulder and have happily decided to carry a handbag that will not only hold everything I really need – note the word ‘really’ – not weigh a ton, look pretty, go from day to drinks to dinner effortlessly and look good however I choose to carry it.

My favourite day to evening bags this season have a top handle plus a long strap, so you can carry them any way you want to, and detach the strap if you don’t need it.  These top handle handbags also hold a lot more than you think they will.  I see people carrying mini bags all the time and wonder how they manage, frankly I couldn’t.  I want the best of all worlds and these bags are just that.

Coming on my travels with me next month is Lancaster Paris small chic black bowling bag which has so much more room than you’d expect and will even hold a bottle of water if I want it to.  Perfect when going out for the day.  I also love Michael Kors’ Gallery Mercer Handbag for the same reason.  Ladylike, so smart and you can take it anywhere.  Too many choices.  Over to you …….
