Our Love Affair With Handbags

When this gorgeous bag was delivered by Mr Postman I was so excited - imagine someone jumping up and down clapping her hands, that was me! But it got me thinking, why do we have such a love affair with handbags? Handbags are a universal subject for girls so I had no problems when I asked a few of my girlfriends to tell me what they love about their bags, why they're so essential and what they're lusting after at the moment.

Handbags date back to Egyptian times – so why, 5000 years later, do we still love them so much? Because it’s a key part of our outfit says Molly "they can really make or break your outfit". Amy adds "they're so versatile with different shapes, quality and textures on offer" so there really an option or design to please everyone. We "carry out lives" in them too as Olivia explains "They have everything you need for your day, especially massive bags carrying make-up, clothes, diaries etc.".

So what bags in particular are we loving at the moment? I've been told it's tote, bucket and saddle bags - fitting considering the domination of the 70s trend on the high street. but let's admit it, everyone strives to have a designer handbag with the logo embossed on the front - Hayley included who is "saving up for a Celine or YSL clutch - one which I can pass down to my children".

That's why I was so excited to receive the gorgeous leather handbag from Ghost London. This bag is perfect for "carrying my life around in" but is still minimal and sophisticated - exactly what I've been looking, lusting (and saving) for!

Have you brought a bag recently? What are you saving up for?
