A few weeks ago Hayley (from Hayley Miller) asked for bloggers to collaborate in a handbag documentary and I jumped at the chance to share how much my handbags mean to me. I LOVE handbags. I pride myself that I at least have the self control not to buy a new bag every week until I have a different one for each day of the year. I have memories and emotions attached to every one I own and that at least 30, and always longing after another.
I have the Gucci handbag: the one I use when I want to impress (read as show off how amazing my boyfriend is) and makes me feel like a queen; the satchel I use for study days/ assessments or when ever I need to carry a lot of stuff around with me; a variety of "hippy bags" that I live in Monday to Friday at work (usually with an orange or apple left in there past its prime); and then there is the Ted Baker clutch (from my dad) that spends 99% of its time tucked up safely in its dust bag and only for special occasions.
Out of all of the bags I own my all time favourite has to be my hairy monster bag.
I'll be the first to admit its seen better days and there is a whole in the lining the size of my fist but I love it. I'm convinced its got me every job I've interviewed for (and is coming with me for my Uni interviews) as it makes the best first impression. Its just so striking.
If I am ever worried about going somewhere I take this bag. It makes me feel safe and reminds me of Chris.
It goes with practically everything I own and I think its in about 70% of all my outfit posts.
I wonder is all my magic powers come from my bags?

All my favourite bloggers are bag fanatics too (Law, Laura, Elizabeth and Helena are a few I never see without a bag).
Do you have a favourite bag? How does it make you feel?
P.S. I want to thank my best friend April for these photos- she really captured the bag perfectly and i give her 10/10 for the effort she put in.
