I have something different for you today for a Sunday instead of my normal ‘Sunday Chat’ posts, today I wanted to quickly show you my new LYDC handbag that I –amongst a selection of other lucky followers- were lucky enough to win in December through a Twitter competition. I don’t know how many different styles of LYDC handbags were available to win but the one I got sent was the sequined cross body evening bag and I Love it!
If I am honest, this wouldn’t be the sort of bag I would choose myself as I am not usually a lover of sequin detailing. That being said, I think it’s nice to be given things that you would not usually pick out yourself as it demands you work with something new and mixes up your style a little. While the sequins might not be my favourite, the overall style of the bag is and in recent times I have tried to use smaller, more simplistic bags in an effort to not carry around with me so much unnecessary excess. Even though this bag has been designed for evening use, I actually think –with the right outfit- it could easily be fashioned during the day for example, on a shopping trip.
When opened, the bag is perfectly big enough to fit the essentials (for day use) –purse, foldable cotton tote bag, phone, small compact mirror, keys & maybe a couple of items of makeup if you should so desire/need. At the back (of the inside) is a zipped compartment but it doesn’t expand much to allow for anything beyond maybe a credit card or two to hold. There are also two small pouches on the inside at the front which again, don’t expand a lot but we need to remember this handbag has been designed for evening use and not for the day. The inside compartment closes with a zip which is a big tick for me on the security front, particularly when it’s otherwise just a press stud close on the underside of the flap.
Overall, I am totally delighted with my new LYDC bag and I will definitely be keeping an eye on their other collections which I urge you guys to do too!
Until next time x
