Life Looks Great With Bags Of Colour!

In recent years accessories, handbags especially, have broken free from the confines of tradition and marched a track of their own, delivering what seems like a bottomless paintbox of trend colours and a carnival of crisp, structured tote shapes and satchels have come back, in a freshly squeezed fruit-bowl of juicy hues, too.  

  

Aldo, Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Forever 21, Zara and River Island have all drawn inspiration from designers.

  

Diane Von Furstenberg’s cushy candy pink striped quilt bag looks good enough to eat!  Chanel-alike chain straps ensure these two will take you many style miles.

  
The rainbow revolution has even seen Chanel’s 2.55 re-issue get a block-colour make over whilst DKNY spiced things up with sizzling summer brights, proving pink and orange can work in harmony together.

 
Geometric designs have been sneaking back, too, in a good way, River Island have managed to evoke memories of Trebor Refreshers with their multi-colour totes!
 
 Whilst the big handbag heroes of the high-street and high end enjoy playing around with colours and patterns, they’ve not let up on the much desired designer detailing (chains, studs, etc) or compromised on quality.  The illusion people are getting of the stereotypical classic “it” bag is continually expanding beyond the “goes-with-all” black bag. 

 
Beauty Buzz for this weekend… 

Ever thought of what your favourite nail colours say about you?
  

Which one are you at the moment?, apparently, I’m calm today!

 Here’s a fun way to decide on a trend colour mani / pedi if you’re allowed to wear nail polish for work… Thank you Essie!
