Smythson Virginia Shoulder Bag in Cassis

storedandadored designer handbag blog

Smythson's Virginia Shoulder Bag was released in 2010 (during Samantha Cameron's reign as creative director of Smythson) and had a good reception, including a recommendation as a must-have autumn/winter accessory by Elle UK. Smythson's Virginia Bag was available in two styles; a shoulder bag (pictured here) and a strap-free clutch version. Both of these models were available in a range of colours, including black, grey, cream and the deep raspberry colour that is pictured above and below.

Gerard Darel Le Buci Bag in Cream

Over the last twelve months I've had the pleasure of selling quite a few Gerard Darel bags, including two other Le Buci models (in black and brown). The latest Gerard Darel Le Buci Bag to leave our storeroom - on it's way to a happy customer! - is in this gorgeous cream colour, which would complement many seasonal styles.

Smythson Gladstone Style Black Leather Bag with Shagreen Closure

stored and adored designer pre-loved bag blog

This little Smythson number has stolen my heart. I don't quite know why I've fallen head over heels in love with this bag, but there's something about it's structure and size that speaks to me. Originally, this Smythson bag would have been sold with an accompanying shoulder strap, but I purchased this pre-loved from a friend and, unfortunately, she lost the strap during a trip abroad. Hotel rooms all over the world are responsible for quite a few missing treasures!

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Review

3.1 Phillip Lim is responsible for some truly lovely bag designs, but the Pashli is definitely their bag-of-the-moment. The Pashli is often referred to as a satchel, but don't let this put you off, it's still very modern and trendy. It's produced in many different colours but only three sizes; the mini (pictured above in green and below in blue) the medium and the large.
