Wearable Tech: The Knomo Elektonista Digital Clutch

Wearable Tech: The Knomo Elektonista Digital Clutch

I’ve had many interesting debates lately regarding wearable tech, nearly everyone I have spoken to says they aren’t convinced because nearly all think that the wearable tech products out there might be useful but they are also ugly, bulky or just too geeky to even want to wear.

Generally, this talk is directed to those smartwatches, which can read your e-mails, track your fitness, and even make phone calls, obviously not on their own! But there is much more to wearable tech than watches, there are also sci-fi like glasses from Google, which totally needs a lot more work to make them cool, as well as technology embedded into clothing, and even rings that vibrant to inform you of your notifications. Basically wearable technology can be anything that incorporates functional, portable electronics and computers into your daily life, which I am totally on board with, if only technology could work with fashion more to make them appealing.

Bag Loving: The Elie Saab Satchel

Elie-saab-bags-ss-6When I think of Elie Saab, I think gorgeous gowns, exquisite detailing, and one of my favourite red carpet designers, one think I don’t think about is that they do handbags, and it seems like I have been missing out.

I have really been embracing smaller handbags lately, from my bright yellow Rebecca Minkoff to my dinky Anya Hindmarch Tiny Tim, and I am always on the look out for another little beauty to add to my collection and I just spotted this gorgeous satchel style from Elie Saab with its chain shoulder strap. Everything about this mini bag screams classic elegance and when looking for a new designer bag I want something that will look modern past the current season, it is an investment after all.

These leather satchels designed with a floral palette tone for spring/summer 2014 are gorgeous, I love that even though there are only six styles each one is in a striking classic colourway from emerald-green to jasmine white. If I had to pick a favourite I think it would have to be deep raspberry, not only is the colour pure Barbie perfection but the piping detailing really adds a modern touch to a classic style.

Bag Lust: Anya Hindmarch Is Out Of This World

SS14-anya-hindmarch-13

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 tassel was one of my favourites, but I just adored the Area 51 vintage vibe UFO prints on the clutches and the ‘Roslyn’ evening bag. I also had a soft spot for the smiley face logo tote with “Have a nice Day. Thank you!” on it and the matchbox clutches.

I recently added a cute Anya Hindmarch bag to my collection called the Tiny Tim, I promise to show you this little beauty soon, but I am already lusting over my next purchase and I think it might have to be one of the Maxi Zip satchels.

Bag Lust: The Victoria Beckham Seven

Victoria-beckham-seven

Handbags get me every time, I’m always lusting over at least one, whether it’s an emerging designer such as Sophie Hulme or just a great bag I have seen on the high street – I’m always on the look out for my next purchase.

There is just something about carrying a new bag that gives me a great feeling – I have to be honest I’m more about handbags than shoes.

I’m a lover of bright coloured bags, I have pink, blue and even yellow, but not an acid yellow one. This mini-tote by Victoria Beckham is so lust worthy, I love the invigorating pop of colour, the sports-luxe vibe to it with it being a bowling bag, and I adore the matte-leather.

Now if only this gorgeous Victoria Beckham ‘Seven’ bowling bag was a little more in my price range, at £1,175 I think this beauty is just for my dreams – but oh boy what great dreams I will have with this on my arm!!!
