LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
You know it’s fate when you fall in love with the most perfect bag for Spring and realise it may have been named Carlyle just for you. I mean what girl living in Scotland wouldn’t instantly see that connection, other than the fact that the bag is truly gorgeous? There’s Robert Carlyle (actor), Thomas Carlyle (philosopher) and Carlisle (city in Cumbria) although spelled differently, I always associate it with all things “Carlyle”. Always fascinated by the names handbags are given and it’s always fun adding another “male” BAG to my Henri Bendel collection. You might remember my love affair with Warren not long ago in this post?
Anyway, it’s Spring and I’m starting to look away from all black accessories. Couldn’t say the same about my clothes, but nonetheless – we’re getting there. I’m obsessed with all things SAFARI right now, which is one of the reasons why Carlyle is my arm candy now. The embossed lizard leather is so refreshing for the new season, but it’s the very chic, classic and structured design of this tote I fell in love with mainly. Very feminine, but at the same time “means business” and also softens any masculine, casual edgy look too as demonstrated by yours truly.
I miiiiigggghhtttt have gotten my mitts on this baby boy too… His name is Waldorf.
