Dress: Emily & Fin
Bag: Ollie & Nic
After realising my satchels were damaging my new coat (sob!) I went on the hunt for a little black hand held bag. I wanted something similar to my marks and spencer bag but without any print. I looked everywhere I could think of in my small town before laying eyes on this adorable red apple wicker bag in House of Fraser. I couldn't put it back down, it wasn't at all what I was looking for but actually looks really cute with my coat and just in general. It's certainly a conversation starter and most definitely the apple of my eye. It's deceptively roomy and is plenty big enough for all my essentials not that I am a big handbag kinda girl anyway.
I had a great time at the access all asos swap shop on Saturday. I didn't take any photos because quite frankly I was having too much fun chatting to some lovely ladies. I met Amy from Mod Dolly which was lovely, it's great meeting the person behind a brand you love. I wore my Mod Dolly dress to the event so Amy could check out the fit of it on someone who isn't sample sized! I didn't pick up any goodies for me at the swap shop as there was nothing in my style or if it was it was sample size and wouldn't have fitted me but I did get some lovely stuff for Gray. Thankfully he is asos sample size and as no guys made it to the swap I had the pick of the rails! He is over the moon with his goodies, thank you asos. There was an ace leopard print shirt that I nearly picked up but am not sure Gray would have loved it as much as I did. I absolutely love this leopard sleeve jumper from Capology so am going to make him realise the error of his ways, a Valentines pressie maybe?!
