I have a pet bag, the little Ledbury baby as I call it. It’s small, soft and beautiful. It’s cuddly. I will probably sound totally insane, but I find it somewhat soothing to touch and hug “her”. It’s like a comfort blanket. It’s velvety suede interior also holds beautiful memories about our trips to Paris, Bruges and all over England. I love this baby and was very excited to spot a new style of carrying a handbag that suddenly made me see my little treasure in a completely new light. The bag can now be truly cuddled and carried around in my arms – a style that looks so wonderfully effortless and chic!
And it doesn’t just apply to lady-like handbags – you can use your favourite tote bag by folding it in half or use a larger handbag as long as its shape makes it comfortable enough for you to hold it. I wouldn’t probably clutch mine à la Prada, otherwise I’d most likely lose some of my precious possessions, so I’m taking inspirations from the likes of Miu Miu, Celine, Dries and Victoria Beckham.
What do you think about this trend? How do/will you carry you favourite bag?
