  • Finding the perfect bag: The lowdown

    0 comments / Posted by Lucy Evans

    An important investment for any outfit, choosing the perfect bag can take time and thought. On average, a woman owns around 21 handbags in her lifetime, so we’ve selected our top five most important features to consider when choosing that all-important accessory. Take a look at our lowdown below to help choose the right bag for you!



    Lifestyle

    Probably one of the most important questions you will have to ask yourself is how and when will you be using your bag? What outfits will you be wearing with it? Answering these questions will help determine the style of handbag that you need – from smaller clutches for those nights out with the essentials to bigger satchel styles for work. For the more organised amongst you, compartments are practical for storing away different items in an easily accessible way, whilst those seeking comfort will want a shoulder strap.

    Perfect Handbag Lifestyle

    Size

    What essentials need to fit in your bag? If you’re not a self confessed hoarder and enjoy carrying a few daily basics, then you will love the freedom that comes with a smaller cross body handbag. For those of you who like to keep your life in your bag, a roomy tote can offer all of the space you need to store away your items.

    Perfect Handbag Size

    Price

    A big factor when it comes to purchasing a bag, price can be one of the most influential aspects when finding the perfect bag. For everyday wear, it is worth investing a little more money – you want something durable and good quality due to the wear and tear of everyday life.

    Colour

    With classic neutral shades such as black, navy and grey suitable for everyday wear, why not mix it up with brighter colour's during the summer months and nights out?

    Perfect handbag colour

    Body type

    In addition to other factors, choosing the right bag for your shape can flatter your body – just like any other accessory you may be wearing. Slim and tall women can benefit from mid and oversized sized bags to keep them in proportion, whilst short and petite women appear taller with small handbags!


    Now it’s time to get shopping! Check out our range of beautiful handbags and find the perfect match for you! http://bit.ly/2u5PtHX

    giphy1) Edward Cullen

    You may not be a lover of the Twilight series but it's hard to deny how perfectly loving Mr Cullen is described in the novels. The way he cannot bare to live without her, to not even be away for short periods of time is sweet for me... some may think its creepy! Oh & did I mention in the film adaptations Robert "Frickin" Pattinson plays him!

    f8c14210a74f9b3fd5776ee07fb90ed62) Heathcliff

    A truly tragic character that many have interpreted in different ways throughout the years. A subject to the capitalist society you just cannot help but fall in love with the rugged bad boy in Heathcliff! From Tom Hardy to Laurence Olivier their has been some fine men that play this amazing character.

    10-The-Great-Gatsby-quotes3) Jay Gatsby

    A man who pursued the love of a women until his tragic death, committing his entire life to winning her over by any means necessary a truly symbolic character of the American dream... also King Leo has played him & that says a lot.

    tumblr_n9bgurV6Gn1trldaio1_5004) Christian Grey

    If you're making a list on male characters that get you all hot & bothered, how can you not include this man! He may be into some stuff that well... we will leave that there! But this mysterious man with a heart of gold will always be in my list... for some other reasons as well! *Cough* *Cough*

    tumblr_mkdrtpygpz1s8fewoo1_5005) Noah Calhoun

    The Notebook... need I say more when I first read this all I could think about was the character Noah & how he literally would do anything for her! Their eventual union is one to remembered plus you get great quotes like the one above! Also if you watch the film theirs a certain Mr Ryan Gosling in it... just thought I would mention that.
