selection of 5 ladies' clutch bags

Maybe because it’s my birthday in less than a fortnight, but recently I’m finding my head being turned by cute clutch bags ;-)

Yes, I’ve already got lots of bags – but I could always find a little space for one of these. The most expensive example is 100 times more expensive than the cheapest, can you guess which is which? No peeking at the answers!

  1. Oversize vegan leather envelope clutch – rose pink – £6.44 Etsy
  2. Day to evening leather clutch by E&S Elves & Shoemakers – £125, Notonthehighstreet
  3. Metallic clutch – £25, River Island
  4. Sarah oversized envelope clutch bag , yellow – £39, John Lewis
  5. Mulberry Clemmie glossy goat leather clutch – £695, Selfridges

I love pairing a pair of brightly coloured tights with a 60s shift dress or denim skirt. Trinny & Susannah once said on their “What not to Wear” TV programme that bright colours should never be worn with black. I completely disagree! The ladies in this photo remind me of the line up in Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” video.

There’s a huge range of brightly coloured tights available at UK Tights – best get stocking up for when the colder weather makes its reappearance!

 What’s your sign? I’m not a big believer in horoscopes (I’m Sagittarius by the way) but I do love some of the art, symbols and illustrations that are inspired by them. In fact, I’ve started a little Pinterest board with ones that I’d gladly give house room!

The month of April is famous for showers – although this month has so far been about thawing snow on the hills! I rarely leave the house without rain protection of one kind or another, and this Junction 18 umbrella would be a cute & quirky accessory for “dress up” days!

Olive green espadrilles sewn in white – €22.00,

The clocks have gone forward, the sun’s been out – I’ve left the house without a coat twice this week – it’s officially spring!

Time for some new springtime footwear. Espadrilles are timeless, coming back into fashion almost every year. I already own pairs in bright Grecian blue, fuchsia pink and white which I team up with wide-legged, white linen trousers. This olive green pair would be perfect with khaki chinos or Bermuda shorts!
