This is short and sweet as I have to get back up a ladder to paint before the light goes. A few little neutral newbies have made it into So So Towers just lately and I thought I'd share.
1. Topshop Whipstitch Bag
I have black bags with gold hardware, I have black bags with silver hardware and now I have a black bag with no discernible hardware at all which makes it very useful to pair up with whatever I fancy. I also know that some of you out there cringe at the thought of mixing your metals so this bag definitely sorts out that dilemma. This is going to be my little summer bag and fits a reasonable size purse in it with a little room to spare. I like the slightly kooky seventies vibe about it but is a bit edgier as it's black and not too neat looking. I'm thinking more Marant lace up detailing than Pocahontas.
2. ASOS Formula Leather Sandals
I always play the "Shall I or Shan't I?" game round about now with sandals. If I leave it too late some of the really good ones will have sold out by the time I've decided that I can't live another day without them. I've had these ASOS sandals in and out of my basket so many times but this time I hit the button as ASOS have 20% off this particular pair at the moment and £20 for these sandals is more than reasonable. I have to say I was super impressed with these when they arrived as they look so much more expensive than their low price point and are real leather. They also do a silver version here if you fancy a lighter more neutral look.
3. Zara Leather Messenger Bag
This almost killed me. I had to wait for my birthday till I could get my mitts on it as my friend was buying it for me. I had to wait a whole week till it was actually in my possession - sometimes a week is a very long time when you want something badly and it doesn't matter at all that I probably won't use it for another two months yet. So as you can tell - I love this little bag. And "little" is the operative word here. It's teeny weeny but it's so cute, I can overlook it's teeny weeny unpracticalness. And the metal hardware - again, it just gives it that little edge. A bit like the Kooples bags (seen here) which I also rather like. Oh and if you don't like the tan/taupe shade, there's also a black and a bluish version to chose from.
So that's it. I'm back up that ladder now. I'm in spring cleaning mode. Sees ya later!
