The perfect Spring bag

Need new arm candy? You can’t add Ryan Gosling to basket, but you can get your mitts on this tote that comes with a clutch and a purse too.

We’re close enough to spring to start coveting the new season fashion stuff, right? Plus it’s pay day (doing a little dance). Now we love a good bag at Muddy for an easy fashion fix. I’m not flush enough to be tottering into Londinium to snag myself some designer arm candy (if you are, well done!), but from the comfort of my sofa and a bit casual surfing I discovered this gorge GiftPop tote that hits not one but THREE spring/ summer trends.

Totes are massive for summer 2017 – as seen on the runways of Celine, Sonia Rykiel, Mui Mui and Paul Smith – hitting the demand hard for roomy shoulder bags to carry everything from your mobile office, kids paraphernalia and shopping in style. Plus there’s also a small purse that you can attach to a neat hook inside so you’ll never lose your keys and credit cards again. Not that that happens very often *ahem*.

But wait one second, as there’s more to this quality PU leather (it really looks like the real deal, BTW) slouchy bag than meets the eye. It also comes with a clutch. Boom! Clutches are also probably the most glamorous 2017 shape featuring heavily in the Louis Vuitton and Prada shows. The trouble is the kind of events where clutches make an appearance (parties, weddings… with lots of dancing and drinking), are exactly the kinds of places where if our bag is not attached, we’ll leave it behind. Oh yes, we’ve all been there. Thankfully this one also comes with a handy strap, so you can turn it into a cross body if you’re tipping over the edge from tipsy to falling over drunk.

Available in loads of fresh colours and metallics (trend number 3, TICK) – white, silver, gold, pale pink, pale grey, beige and orange – it costs £55 and is totes (sorry couldn’t resist) amaaaaazing!

The new season is here, people. Let’s shop this bad boy.
