Autumn Handbag Wishlist

Well it's official, we're in Autumn! Autumn is my favourite season for so many marvelous reasons! From fashion to colours to events, there is just so much to love! We're back to chunky knitwear, leather boots, crispy leaves and bonfire night plus, not to cause panic but we are on the countdown to Christmas! I am trying to contain my excitement for Christmas this year as I still don't have a job and the closer to Christmas we get the scarier this gets. 

Now, it has been far too long since I have blogged about handbags and being a raving handbag hoarder I just can't quite forgive myself for such a crime. I am constantly (and I mean constantly) thinking about handbags. Whenever I go to John Lewis (which is far too often) I am straight to the handbag section. And when I am not in department stores looking at handbags I am sat on Pinterest and Instagram looking at possible next purchases...woops

I have made a list of my favourite handbags this season and I thought I would share it with you (as seen in the photo above)

Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Top-Zip Tote - Okay I know what you're thinking, I already own 2 Michael Kors handbags but I completely disagree with the statement that 3 is a crowd! I love big totes and Michael Kors knows how to please a lady when it comes to such styles. My favourite feature is the fact that this bag zips as not many of the totes in his collection do. Safety first people! 

Dune Enlightening Branded Bar Detail Clutch - Dune have seriously stepped up their game this year when it comes to bags. With bold block colours and statement metallics their bags have certainly been catching my eye in store and on the streets. This stunning clutch is no exception, I love the fold in design and statement colour! Perfect for a Christmas night out dare I say...

Ted Baker Hickory Stitch Shoulder Bag - Ted Baker never fail to produce some real show stopper bags. From bright and quirky floral patterns to sophisticated leathers, I love every new season. This bag keeps catching my eye in John Lewis. Its leather is so soft and it's such a beautiful colour. The site lists it as brown but in store it looks more of a maroon colour. It's size is brilliant, perfect for work or weekend adventures! 

Gigi New York Uber Clutch - I have a real bad habit for falling madly in love with New York brands and GiGi is no exception. These gorgeous clutches have been haunting me on Pinterest and Instagram for so long that I made it my mission to find their maker. I wish they were stocked in the UK as I would be there in a heartbeat. You can even get them personalised with your initials and with those bright colours, what is not to love?! They can even be an evening clutch as well as a sophisticated day time accessory. Want Want Want!!!

Rhodesian Of Edinburgh -The Cassi - I first came across Rhodesian Of Edinburgh on Hannah's blog and it kinda was love at first site (My heartbeat raced, my palms got sweaty and I dribbled all over the keyboard). Since discovering this brand months ago I regularly sit on their site looking at all their beautiful designs and kinda maybe stroking the screen. These satchels are fantastic as they are much wider than other satchel brands and you can design them to your own preference (Including that oh so important initial personalisation). But the best factor of these bags is that you can opt for magnetic fasteners instead of the standard buckle that other satchel brands use. Buckles and stiff leather are just a nightmare and has stopped me purchasing from other satchel makers in the past. As my birthday is in November I am seriously considering putting The Cassi right at the top as I just can't stop thinking about it!! ... Told you I was a handbag addict

I hope you enjoyed these flawless bags. My aim by Christmas is to own them all so someone seriously needs to employ me fast!!! 

What are your favourite Autumn bags people? Send me more leather to swoon over now!!
