This is often a question I ask myself. Along with similar jacket or boots queries. Shoes I can take or leave but I can happily choose boots, jackets, and, bags, for any or all occasions!
Still when I see the word satchel I think of long-forgotten schooldays but there’s no denying it’s a practical style and, talking of style, things have come a very long way since there was very little choice in these matters. I seem to remember you had either a satchel or a sports bag to lug around. One would be a singular colour, the other would probably have football team branding on.
There is so much choice now and, once again, House Of Fraser have come up trumps with a collection of modern and classic handbags for Spring and Summer, many incorporating the satchel format. A couple really caught my eye that wouldn’t usually be on my colour radar, but, hey, it’s Spring…let’s get bold! The orange colour is just stunning for this season I think.
We know from Monday’s post that my handbag carries most of my life in it so you can imagine how much fun it was compiling this selection of lovelies and I defy you not to want at least one of them too!
I found an old Daily Mail feature saying that 1 in 10 women owns 15 handbags and was going to laugh it off as extravagant nonsense…thought I’d better go and count my own first…I have 8 plus backpacks and camera bags. Room for one more then?
How many do you own and do you like any of my choices?
