I can’t begin to explain how many bits and pieces I seem to carry around with me, a ‘what’s in my bag’ post would either have to be highly edited (which they usually are – notice no one includes scrunched up receipts, knotted hair ties or tampax on their lists) or at least ten frames long. In homage to my love of bags with loads of pockets, I recently went about making a little shoulder bag, complete with triple pocket detail inspired by the Celine Trio Bag
I’ve been lusting over for quite some time. Perfect for organising your life into little slotted purses! Or, if you’re like me, stuffing until overflowing.
3 small zipped pouches. Mine were simple suede ones I picked up for a steal.
6 snap buttons
Thread matching the colour of your bag
A length of flat gold curb chain
A strap of some sort, either off the pouches themselves or handmade out of similar material.
Optional tools include beading plyers and a multi hole punch (I didn’t end up using them).
Not wanting to completely replicate the Celine version, I created a gold chain strap which I think worked quite well, feel free to experiment with the type of strap you use!

Just in case you feel like the bleakness of a Northern Hemisphere winter will last forever, I thought I would take the opportunity to remind you of what you’ve got to look forward to in Spring. Namely: short suits. I’m betting they will be huge with a capital H this season. What’s not to love? They’re ‘trays sheek’ if I do say so myself. I’m thinking…. pink! Or brocade. Decision decisions.

I’m totally addicted to zips at the moment, I recently went out and bought a whole heap in silver and gold and I’m having so much fun deciding what to do with them. What do you think of zip front trousers like these?
