I came across these little beauties on, the are just divine. Word has it that they are 'dance purses' worn by 'ladies' (the little britain type) when going to dances. I wonder whether they were hand held or worn around the neck?

Some of the more detailed images show what was inside these things. Inside are two little compartments for 'powder' of whatever your inclination is... or some flat make-up varieties.

This one below is from another etsy seller which is also made from sterling silver and a similar design. The interior details are amazing, it also has a little compact mirror inside.

One of the things i particularly like and am inspired by with these is the chain. so delicate and i really love the elongated links.

With an external monogram, and beautiful angled edges, i find this piece really inspirational for the design of phone cases for the modern world.

Here are some pictures of the bags that i am ebaying at the moment. I am trying to raise enough money for my bloody maintenance payments on my flat. Every 6 months i completely forget about it and then BANG! it hits me just before christmas. Boo Hoo. Bye bye lovely bags.

This bag by Andrea Crews is slightly nuts, I love it. It is maybe not even a bag, but i find it very intriguing and creative. I think its really inspiring.

I just love polka dots. They are geometric, perfectly round and repeated in the most elegant understated way. Just like mini-mouse, they are timeless and ageless. These are some of the polka dotted accessories that have been around recently from Commes Des Garcons (wallets) to Luella (shopper). Not to mention the Japanese Cult brand Porter - whose sub brand 'Head Porter' has this cute little digital camera case.

For people who drop their phones all the time, this might be the right thing for you. Its made from brass or aluminium with very manly cut-outs, it will keep your phone very safe. It reminds me of what a black box in a plane might look like if i ever saw one.

The ultimate trumps in iphone cases.

Going over the catwalks from the past season, spring/summer 2010, i noticed alot of really soft femine and colourful bags coming through and wanted to share a few of my favourites with you.
We are seeing prints in soft colours with hazy edges, clashing and contrasting prints on the same bag, some tribal geometric prints and designs and overall rounder shapes with highly feminine vibes.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Overall, we are seeing lots of circlar motifs, such as on the Bottega Venetta as well as circular patterns on the tourquoise paul and joe bag i have shown. Versace and Ashish also presented bags with quite round constructions as well.
