Etsy Pick: Purple leather slouchy bag
It seems like you have two choices at the moment when it comes to chosing a bag: slouchy and squashable or completely rigid and boxy. I don't need to tell you which end of the spectrum this one comes in on, as the clue's in the name - and I rather like it.
Firstly, it's purple, which is one of the more 'fun' colours you can get away with wearing in autumn and winter, which are invariably fashion's more 'serious', grown-up seasons. Secondly, it's got an interesting, fish-scale style ruched panel up the side. And thirdly, it's handmade, which not only means good quality, it's also the most affordable way to buy a unique, limited edition style. This one's from The Leather Store which is based in Bristol UK and costs $120 (approx £72)
