When the lovely team at House of Fraser contacted me with regards to reviewing a bag from their spring/ summer range I was thrilled. I mean, who doesn’t love a new bag? I never used to think of myself as a bag person but I’ve definitely grown very fond of bags, particularly the crossbody variety. The right bag can really complete an outfit, some bags add a pop of colour while others have the ability to dress up even the most basic ensemble.
Browsing through the House of Fraser bags I felt completely spoilt for choice and if I’m honest I had no idea that they stocked such a wide range of bags. When my eyes set on the Nine West Crossbody bag in Pink*, I just knew it was the one.
Despite the fact that I’m no longer in my teens and haven’t been for a number of years, I still love pink just as much as I did then. In fact I love every shade of pink from pastels to bolds. The Nine West Crossbody bag comes in a very pretty light toned pink with contrasting gold detail. I failed to take a photograph, but the lining on the inside of the bag has an adorable striped design which makes me love it even more.
The bag itself is fairly structured which along with the subtle detail, makes for a very smart handbag that can easily work from day to night.
It’s also much more spacious than it looks, fitting my kindle, purse, keys, tissues, lipstick, baby notebook and pen with ease which is very handy. I tend to use crossbody bags in the evenings and weekends, because anything bigger and I’m just filling it with 3 of everything which just ends in shoulder ache, whereas this way I’m restricted to the things I really need.
So far it is wearing beautifully and still looks brand new, I’m hopeful that it will stand the test of time based on how well made it seems. I adore this bag so much that I can see myself using it all of the time over the coming months!
Will you be treating yourself to a new bag for the spring/summer months?
