After years of shunning any bags smaller than a laptop, I'm now finding myself drawn to smaller styles. Maybe it's the tiresome back aches associated with massive luggage demanded by trends of recent years, but I like to think it's also down to the improvement of technology. I no longer have a need to carry an iPad, a phone and a laptop with me at all times, which makes room in the old wardrobe for some cute, tiny bags!
I'm currently in love with the Willow Bag by Aurora Living. Worn as a clutch or with a matching adjustable strap, it's a lovely, slim, leather bag with light gold hardware that comes in five fab colors. A small, soft leather clutch, the Willow Bag features an attachment for keys, 3 card holders and a zipper pocket for organization - something I need in a bag. What I particularly love about a little clutch like this is that if you do have the need to carry more, you can just pop it into a larger bag as a wallet for day and take it for a spin on the town at night - just pop in some statement jewelry and your favorite evening lipstick before you head out the door in the morning and presto, you've got a desk-to-dinner look sorted for your after-work plans! I'm also loving the Willow Bag for travel - it won't take up much space in your suitcase, but makes the perfect clutch for fun nights out, whether they be aprés ski or seaside dinners. Convenient and chic! If you're into something a little more personal or giving this fabulous bag as a gift, Aurora Living can hand engrave the Willow Bag with up to 3 characters for an additional cost of £22.
The Willow Bag is available online from Aurora Living. At just £59.50, it's a little luxury treat that's well worth the investment!
