There have been a lot of "oooohs" and "aaaahs" in this neck of the woods today, I can tell you. "What a lovely colour," "Is it both a clutch and a handbag?" "I bet you could fit an ipad in that" (you can - I checked).
The bag responsible for the "ooohs" and the "aaaahs" is the Electric blue Fenix bag from Kausar (£144) and I must say, all of the compliments are well deserved. The shape is fantastic and the colour stunning - in fact the colour is so great that the rest of your outfit could be totally pants and you could still get away with looking as though you had made an effort/it was intentional.
With the emphasis being on quality rather than quantity, Kausar makes a limited number of each style of bag and they are all designed in house. Because of that, the dimensions and colour can be varied upon request - which is handy for a handbag!
When I went out last night, I used the bag clutch style. Oversized clutches are great to use and, strategically placed, they can hide a multitude of sins too. The leather is beautifully soft and the bags are light.
Today I used the bag casually, cross body style. Up until now I haven't had a bag in this colour but I can see how versatile it will be. In this outfit it picks up the blue in this Whistles scarf but it will also work with darker winter coats - grey, navy, black, tan - take your pick.
This is another style of bag which I also really like - the Tiffany (£202.30). All of the bags have velvet inner linings and leather trim throughout, which makes them feel really special. Additionally, 10% of revenue from the bags is donated to a children's orphanage.
Kausar is looking to be stocked in stores and boutiques so if you are running a boutique and are interested in stocking these beautiful bags, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Now, Kausar have kindly said that I can keep this fantastic bag. However, I feel that it would be unfair to keep it just for me so, as with all things that are gifted to me, if anyone would like to borrow it - whether to blog about it or to use it for an event or just because they fancy trying it out - please let me know and I will send it over to you.
