Mini Bag Mania!

The  Fast growing Street style trend of sporting your favourite designer handbag in a teeny tiny size is hard to resist! Converting to the minis and nanos of the fashion world might take some extra effort for those of us who instinctively reach for the largest bag our arms can carry! The bigger bag trend of the past had the benefit of fitting all our daily essentials and then some, without a second thought! Just throw it all in and you’re good to go!!

The mini bag, however, requires a bit more planning and skill. An IPhone, sunglasses, credit card and gloss is about as much as you’ll manage to squeeze in! However, the hint of sophistication added by these adorable armcandies make it well worth the effort.

As much love as I have for these mini’s, I am in no way ready to completely forsake my huge totes! I’ve found its all about balance. Keep the carryalls for school runs and soccer practice and whip out the nano’s for more ladylike adventures!

I’ve rounded up my top ten mini must haves  but with the way things are going I’m sure this list will keep growing!!

Hope you find the perfect mini masterpiece ❤❤

Espadrille Obsessed!!

I was recently gifted a pair of gorgeous Louboutin espadrilles that made the shoe addict in me smile from ear to ear. I instantly fell in love and rushed out to add the white to my collection! Espadrilles are making a huge comeback and I’m obsessed!!

The infamous and much coveted Chanel espadrille is the one that started it all!! A pair of these gorgeous babies retail at almost $900  and even if you can afford a dent that size in your wallet, you’re not guaranteed to get one. The waiting list to get one of these are endless and the store is rumored to sell them out within 2 hours on the day they are restocked!

For those of you willing to splurge on a pair of rocking espadrilles but don’t have the patience to wait for your Chanel’s, I’ve found a gorgeous range of options that will add some wonder to your wardrobe! Rock them with boyfriend jeans, a dungaree or even a cute dress to be both trendy and comfortable. Alternatively, an espadrille heel is perfect for the days you’d like to dress it up a bit!

Dior : An espadrille with touch of class. Mink is one of my favorite colours of the year and these Diors have just the right amount of sparkle.

Gucci: These are super soft and perfect for everyday!! They’re those live in kind of shoes!!

Steve Madden: These come in two options: a thin and thicker sole. Both are super comfy and won’t put you too out of pocket.

Top shop: They have both the heel and flat option so you’re spoilt for choice!
