Super-cute Mulberry bag with zigzag detail

Which makes it classic, yet with a fun twist. I don't think you see zigzag details on bags nearly enough!

Fun Jimmy Choo embellished clutch

I love it, the embellishments remind me of sprinkles, you know the kind you put on ice cream, for some reason. And who doesn't love sprinkles?

New, completely crazy Chanel beach bag

I am all for oversized bags, since I tend to lug a lot of stuff with me everywhere. But this latest Chanel Hula Hoop beach bag is taking the oversize trend a bit too far, if you ask me. This just cannot be practical! And I don't like the fact that the Chanel-ness of it is made so in your face. Luxury definitely should be a bit more discreet.

And who spends tons of money on a beach bag anyway? I only carry them very rarely, so simple ones are definitely enough for me, I prefer to put my money into every day bags instead.

My new studded skull clutch bag by Licquorish

Sales give you an awesome opportunity to try new brands and styles, that you might not go for at full price. So if you are into handbags, I strongly recommend checking out the ASOS sale right now, since ASOS has a great selection of both designer handbags and nameless handbags for great prices right now.

I got a bag at this sale too, from a new brand, that I was not very familiar with before: Licquorish. But the style is definitely something I have loved for a long time: skulls (a la Alexander McQueen) and studs (so on trend right now), so even though the brand is new, the style isn't.

For more cool skull bags, check out this, this, this and this post for instance.

Alexander Wang Diego shoulder bag

This fall, I am really into grey bags, but finding just the right shade of grey can be tricky, because I don't like very dark greys, and a very light grey looks a bit too "summery" too. But the shade on this shoulderbag, named Diego, from Alexander Wang, is just right. I love it!

Spotted: Jeremy Scott for Longchamp keyboard bag

While travelling recently, I spotted this very fun Jeremy Scott for Longchamp multicolor keyboard bag.
I think it is awesome, and I love that a classic French brand like Longchamp does such modern and fun designs on a regular basis. So definitely: kudos to Jeremy Scott!

My new black Longchamp Le Pliage bag

I am currently travelling (in south east Asia), and I have already picked up quite a few bags, since I love to look for bags when travelling too. One of the bags I got was this cute, and very useful small Longchamp Le Pliage bag.

I actually already have this bag in blue (and I have showed it off on this blog before too, here), so I know I will definitely get a lot of use out of this bag. And black bags are always a good investment, especially if they are as durable as the Longchamp Le Pliages!
