In my recent quest for the perfect little red bag, I stumbled upon the Sadie cross body bag from handbag giants, Fiorelli. Small enough to be considered compact (but not too small not to get “lost” against my body) and big enough to fit more than just my mobile phone and a five pound note, I fell in love with not just the colour of the Fiorelli Sadie, I loved that it had two roomy-ish zipped compartments to keep valuables and two “to hand” compartments at the front and back of the bag for easy access.
I picked up the Sadie in red, taking it on my trip around Venice and falling in love with the buttery soft matte finish, it’s adjustable strap and the gold hardware including F (for Fiorelli dontacha know) detailing to the front. The size of the bag meant that I didn’t pack it too full of unnecessary junk and the multi compartments meant that everything didn’t just congregate at the bottom of a tote with a half empty pack of chewing gum and a train ticket from 2013 – I’m not the only one, right?
Out of curiosity, I had a look on the internet to see if they did the bag in any other colour ways. Y’know, just because. Half an hour later I’d dropped the newest release, an off white and metallic design and an embossed monochrome number into my shopping baskest and made a £100 imaginary dent in my bank balance and left them there whilst I “slept on it”.
“It’s always good to have a neutral coloured bag, especially in the spring and that metallic detailing is so on trend” I said as I talked myself into saying bye bye to £60. “Black and white never goes out style does it? And the embossed detailing is different from the other bags I’ve got isn’t it? It would be complimentary against a colourful outfit as well. PLUS it’s on sale!” You guessed right, bye bye £40.
