Faux Paper Bags

During half-term my daughter and I had a day out together, I put my black bag across me as usual only to be told on the train that it was a “trying-to-be-trendy-but-failing-mum-bag”. I didn’t think it was that bad. But now I come to think of it my husband has also suggested that I treat myself to a new bag a few times recently…. Oh (sound of penny dropping), the bag is awful.

On my hunt for a less awful handbag, I saw these leather bags by Natthakur London that are masquerading as paper and plastic bags, they’re not handbags but they are so lovely. This leather striped grocery bag looks just like the ones from my corner shop but it won’t split as you walk down the road and it’s far nicer. It’s £140 and also available in red.

A ‘paper’ bag that will never go soggy in the rain, available in brown or white leather at £130. The hand printed fabric lining has a repeat of the ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ man. Genius.

The mini leather paper bag is an American style grocery bag that I think is my favourite of the two faux paper styles, it also has the ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ lining and is £65.

These leather penny sweet bags are gorgeous, £28 for the purse and £75 for the clutch bag. The purse also comes in pink, blue, orange and yellow just like in the newsagents.

1930s Junkaholique

I was going to write about sideboards this morning. But oh my gosh. This dress!

1930s yellow satin bias-cut dress - Junkaholique

We all know I have Art Deco aspirations but this 1930s yellow satin dress has me hankering like crazy, but alas, my hips aren’t going to fit in this unless I shave some bone off them. The colour is absolutely beautiful, maybe it was the glorious weather we had yesterday but it doesn’t seem unseasonal either.

This 1930s cherries purse also caught my eye and I won’t need to worry about it fitting me. I love embossed leather and the fact that they’re embossed cherries pleases me greatly.

Both are fromJunkaholique at £78 and £45 respectively. There are so many beautiful things on their site, I’m hankering after almost all the accessories they have.

Which is your favourite?
