Another great Charlotte Olympia bag

This one is called Time Piece and looks like a classic, big clock. I personally think it's really fun, but also wearable, due to the colors.

I would definitely love to add this bag to my collection, but due to the rather high price, I don't think I will for now. Instead, I think my next more expensive bag will be Charlotte Olympia's Movie Night bag.

But I do like Time Piece as well, really nice!

New bag show off: My ASOS speech bubble clutch

Time to show off another one of my new bags, the speech bubble clutch I got on the ASOS sale a while ago.
I've been into speech bubble clutches since Sophia Webster started making them, but I was never so into them that I wanted to splurge on a real Sophia Webster one, so the ASOS "copy" seemed like a good compromise.

And the clutch is quite cute in real life too, and roomier than you would think I would say.
Unfortunately this bag has some silver parts though, which are not super noticeable, but still there, and they look a bit plasticky, I would say. But other than that, this clutch is just as I hoped it would be, and I will definitely be carrying it around as soon as I can figure out what kind of an outfit it goes with....

Another great campaign for Fall 2013

Is the Longchamp Fall 2013 campaign, featuring Coco Rocha.

I love the concept, and the bags are of course really pretty too! Well done, Longchamp! (A long time favorite brand of mine)

New bag love: Celine Edge tote bag

I was just looking through the September issue of Elle US (love this time of the year, because of all the September issues, by the way!) when I spotted this Celine ad:
What a gorgeous bag that is, I thought, and immediately proceeded to checking up on it. This bag has actually been around for some time already, Kourtney Kardashian has one, for instance:
And you can also get it in a bunch of different colors, including a multi color one, if you want.
It's also been featured in Celine ads before:
So I really have no idea how I can have been so clueless about this bag until now, but I have. Either way, I simply must visit a Celine store when I go to Paris next month, if only to see this bag in person. It looks pretty much like the perfect bag right now: Classic and useful, yet with a very cool and unexpected twist. Love it!

Like cats?

If so, may I suggest a very cute cat themed bag for you?
I spotted this Good Omen bag over at Modcloth today, and while I am more of a dog person than a cat person, I am really tempted to get this one. Because cats are pretty cute too!

I'd also say that this bag actually matches quite a lot of stuff, due to it's color, so even though it's a fun and quirky bag, it's also pretty versatile and usable too.

New bag show off: My Catcher in the Rye book clutch

This is another bag I have been really excited about lately, because photos really do not do it justice! I blogged about this book clutch here when I got it, and I was really happy to finally find a book clutch that I liked, since book clutches have been an obsession of mine for a long time, but it was really important for me to get a book clutch that was actually a book I liked too. And I guess my taste in books is rather unusual, because that wasn't as easy as you would expect.
But The Catcher in the Rye is of course a wonderful book, and I really like the design of this version of it too. The colors are just great, and I was happy to see that this book clutch is actually much bigger than I thought it would be. So that was a really nice surprise!
The quality seems good too, and I had no problems at all with the seller (Chick-Lit Designs over at Etsy), so I can highly recommend them for anyone looking for a great book clutch right now. They have a lot of variations to choose from, and I am sure they are all just as beautifully made as mine! I am definitely considering getting more book clutches from them, that's how much I liked my first one!

New bag show off: New Look bag from ASOS

Time to show off another new bag, just like in the previous post, because I have been getting quite a lot of new bags lately. This time, I wanted to show you a cheapie bag I got, because I found a pair of pretty matching wedges as well. It's a bag from New Look, that I got on ASOS, and it's pretty small, but still fits a lot of stuff, well all the stuff I need to carry around with me anyway.
So I am very pleased with this bag, my first experience with New Look actually, and I do think I will be carrying it on it's own too, not just to have something that matches my shoes.

New bag show off: My Eiffel tower bag

I mentioned last month that I had ordered a new Eiffel Tower bag, from a very quirky seller called KruKru Studio over at Etsy. Now I have received it, carried it and gotten a ton of compliments for it (it's a bag everyone notices, believe me!), and I thought it would be appropriate to share some images of it, as well as a verdict on it, here on the blog as well.
First of all, I am really impressed with how good the quality is, it's really amazing, and the bag seems very durable too, which was not something I had really expected since the bag is made out of felt.

So I definitely think I will be carrying this for a long time, and a lot, in the future.
I can highly recommend KruKru Studio, in other words, as I was really pleased with the bag, and the whole deal with them went very smoothly. I do think I might get another bag from them in the future too.
If you're interested in seeing other KruKru Studio designs, you can see several of them in this post.

Looking for really fun and quirky bags? Try Braccialini!

I am a huge fan of bags that are kind of funny, quirky and unique, so it is actually really strange that it took me so long to discover Braccialini, an Italian brand that makes really amazing quirky bags. Here are some of my favorites:

But you should know that this brand has created crazy amounts of really cool bags over the years, so there are plenty of others to choose from as well. You can see their current line on their website, here, but you can find older bags by Braccialini on sites like Ebay as well.

I am definitely planning on getting a Braccialini bag soon, they are right up my alley in every way! The only problem I have with this brand is really that there are too many cute bags to choose from!
