Top 5: Handbags

As October rolls around again, the inevitable excitement of Autumnal attire fills my mind. Faux fur gillets, tweed capes with leather trimmings, sheepskin lined jackets…I cannot wait to shop my weight in you.

But this year, instead of a plethora of sartorial delights occupying my every thought – another delectable venue of expenditure has presented itself.

Bags. Inexpensive, on-trend and utterly gorgeous bags.

Yes, bag shopping is not entirely new to you – but these particular bags are. This season, Arnotts launch Fiorelli Black – a new limited and yet affordable collection within the Fiorelli label.The collection is very different and perfect for the season ahead.

Colours focus on the darker, more dangerous side of the spectrum – with highlights of oh-so-on-trend oxblood. But more importantly, the bags feel divine – with faux-fur and faux pony-hair throughout. What more could a girl want but a faux-fur satchel to snuggle up to on the long, cold bus ride home from work? Stand out pieces include the adorable “Once Upon” bag (€65, pictured 1) and the aptly named “Just Because” (€145, pictured 4).

Urban Outfitters also have a very cool alternative for those seeking a snugly bag but with a definite 90’s feel, namely the “Cooperative Shearling Cross-Body Bag” (€55, pictured 3) with an adjustable faux-leather strap and two buckled patch pockets. With the beige shearling and tan buckles, this is a bag that My So-Called-Life’s Angela would die for.

If 90’s chic isn’t exactly up your alley, Topshop and Warehouse have some very gorgeous and very luxe-looking bags in at the moment. Warehouse’s bowling bag (€60, pictured 2) with its panel of faux fur is the epitome of ladylike glamour and the dark-green shade is beautiful whereas Topshop’s faux-fur shopper (pictured below) with gold zip detailing is utterly glam and only costs €55!


Which arm candy will you be sporting this coming season?
