Handbags and shoes are my thing, I can never have enough. I have over the years owned lots of designer bags, my problem is I have a low boredom threshold so after a while I get bored, regardless of the brand and want something new and shiney!

This is not sustainable, with the price of bags now heading towards that of a second hand car!

I have started to look for more well priced options but I still want the finish and the quality I am happy to pass on the designer name, that’s all.

One of my first finds are Florian London, they deserve to be mentioned first as the customer service is so very good. I have not come across a more obliging, helpful company in years.

They are in the business of looking after their customers and combine this with a fabulous bag and they come top of my list.

This brand have also won the 2014 Independent Handbag Designer Award of the Year.

I also love the traditional, practical shapes, there is something for everyone. There are great crossbody bags for casual wear, totes to travel with or take to the office as well as evening bags.




The colours and shapes are what first attracted me to the brand I wanted an off white bag, not too big but big enough to fit a bottle of water with a crossbody strap. There it was in all its perfection the Vienna bag.

I was dubious as at two hundred and sixty five pounds  this seemed too good to be true?

I was nervous opening my delivery but I needed have been, the bag is gorgeous and on top of that you can have them monogrammed.

I couldn’t resist pairing this gorgeous bag with my new purchase from & Other Stories, I just love this orange silk skirt and blouse and the shoes are preloved D& G from Vestaire Collective. This is an outfit which I have earmarked for a Spring Garden Party or the Races.

I do love the use of colour at Florian and the tones they choose are really wearable.

With Mothers Day coming up soon this is the perfect gift, I am lucky to be able to offer my regular readers a discount voucher for 20% please use this code at checkout, the code is CWSG101 thank you so much Florian London.


This is the perfect outfit to wear to the Races, with the Cheltenham Races coming up next week, Ladies Day is next Wednesday the 11th of March, they are trying to bring colour to the festival this year so this outfit would be perfect and add this aptly named Cheltenham hat by Emily London and you are set.


I have added a selection of my favourite Florian bags, which are the perfect Race Day accessory  below,  please let me know what you think and use your voucher,
