Three-in-one arm candy
We love a good bag at Muddy for an easy fashion fix. I’m not flush enough to be tottering into Londinium to snag myself some designer arm candy (if you are, well done!), but I like the look of this gorge GiftPop tote, available online and discovered by Rachel up at Muddy Berks that hits not one but THREE spring/ summer trends.
Totes are massive for summer 2017 – as seen on the runways of Celine, Sonia Rykiel, Mui Mui and Paul Smith – and they’re practical too for carrying everything from a mobile office, kids’ paraphernalia or shopping in style. Plus there’s also a small purse that you can attach to a neat hook inside so you’ll never lose your keys and credit cards again.
It also comes with a clutch. Boom! Clutches are also probably the most glamorous 2017 shape featuring heavily in the Louis Vuitton and Prada shows. The trouble is the kind of events where clutches make an appearance (parties, weddings… with lots of dancing and drinking), are exactly the kinds of places where if our bag is not attached, we’ll leave it behind. Oh yes, we’ve all been there. Thankfully this one also comes with a handy strap, so you can turn it into a cross body if you’re tipping over the edge from tipsy to falling over drunk.
It comes in quality PU leather (it really looks like the real deal, BTW and will get a big tick from vegetarians/vegans) and is available in loads of fresh colours and metallics (trend number 3, TICK) – white, silver, gold, pale pink, pale grey, beige and rather Spacehopper looking orange. All this and it costs £55 – totes (sorry couldn’t resist) amazing!
