I’ve always had a soft spot for the bucket bag, maybe it’s the shape, it’s a like a chic rucksack, it holds just as much but without the two strap action, then there’s the fact you can literally fill it up and it retains that elegant drape, basically I’m nominating its cool, casual style and roomy interior as the perfect day bag.

Karl Robot! Seriously how cool is this Karl Robot accessories capsule collection from Karl Lagerfeld where Karl and Choupette have been reimagined as robots.

Everything about this mini bag screams classic elegance
Regular readers will know that I go weak at the knees for a great handbag, they are my thing to collect, well after Barbie, and I have every single one of Anya Hindmarch’s Out of this World collection for spring/summer 2014 on my wishlist. Featuring some of the designer’s best-loved styles, the SS14 collection has been given a colourful makeover – with shimmering metallics, vibrant yellows, exotic-coloured skins, and the most fabulous contrasting oversized tassels that kind of looked like they should be holding back curtains. I am a huge fan of Anya’s tote’s, the yellow beauty with a sky blue
