A few days ago I came home to a beautifully wrapped package and was excited to find this gorgeous Cath Kidston tote bag.
Cath Kidston Ltd was founded in 1993 when designer Cath Kidston opened a tiny shop in London’s Holland Park. She began by selling the vintage fabrics, wallpapers and brightly-painted junk furniture she remembered fondly from her childhood. Her clever, witty re-working of traditional English country house style meant that her shop soon became a cult success.
I absolutely love the trademark floral prints and the colours make it versitile and easy to match.
Hard wearing, sturdy bag that is the perfect size to fit everything I need with pockets both inside and outside which are perfect for storing oyster cards, ipod, phone etc... The material is strong so is able to carry the weight of magazines, books etc which makes it ideal for long journeys and even as a small weekend bag (if you travel light!) AND, of course its super cute!
When I carried it on my shoulder, I found that the bottom of the bag rested awkwardly on my hip and stuck out which make it a little uncomfortable. Also the bag is open, so I would have preferred a zip along the top to keep it closed.
Overall I think this bag is ideal for the summer, and winter, and spring, ok all year round, so I recommend you head over to the Cath Kidston website and check out their wide range of tote bags and sport one of these gorgeous bags too!
p.s. sorry for the lack of updates, I'm on study leave now, so I'll try and post more often and reply to your comments soon :)
