New Radley Bag and Purse with a side helping of sparkle

If I told you I was a ‘bag lady’ does a dear old woman pushing a rusty shopping trolley, full of her dearest belongings, come to mind? Or would you infer from this label that I am a girl who avidly loves her handbags? Especially her new Spring Radley bag and purse.

A little bit of bag history…

For the last few years I have been an Orla Kiely fan I own quite a few of her bags, my favourite being a bright yellow vinyl number, that you have probably seen in many of my pics? However this year I am tiring of the vinyl and have a yearning to feel and smell leather again. I adore the smell of leather, don’t you?

 Radley leather handbags

The Radley brand have been on my ‘bag lady’ radar this year, all due to the stripe factor. Stripes are a classic, but I prefer to look at them rather than wear them. When you have absolutely no waist line to speak of, like me, then stripes are not your best friend. So speaking from a personal point of view I find they make me look wider than I actually am.

A New Radley Love

So from now on you will be seeing far less of orla and oh so much more of Radley.

If you are an ardent colour lover, like myself then I am sure you will agree those colours go together like tea and cake?

This beautiful Radley bag and matching purse was very generously gifted to me. However this does not alter my opinion in anyway whatsoever!

    Fantastic colours!

    Thank you Carolyn!
    I too think the colours are subtly pretty, a handbag needs to go with lots of things, so too bright would not work even for summer I agree!
    In rel life the colours are even prettier!
    Happy Mothers day to you too!

    That bag looks great on you Ashley, I love the colours as they are soft and subtle and not in your face. Have a great Mother’s Day.
