ACCESSORIES - Quilted Bags Get Colourful
Quilted bags are a classic; they never go out of fashion. But sometimes, even the classic needs a refresh, and this season sees the quilted bag become louder and prouder. ASOS has some great ones and instead of the play-it-safe black and white, this season try a coloured quilted bag. Chanel is the queen of quilted, but if like me the price of a Chanel bag gives you a slight heart attack, there are plenty of bags on the high street to choose from. And if you can afford the designer price tag, then go for Marc Jacobs as he has some hot designs right now.
Oh and if you can find one with a chain handle that is even better, just don't do what my friend did while we were in Budapest. She got the chain handle of her bag wedged in the bench seat at a restaurant we were eating at. It took two men and a waitress to free the bag.
I saw this Paul's Boutique bag while shopping in Brighton a while back and I fell in love. Usually I am not a fan of such brash designs, but I thought this particular bag would work really well with a rock-chick ensemble. Summer is coming, and the brighter the better in my opinion. Ditch the bland and boring and get noticed.
