Marc B Helena Bag*


Autumn is my favourite month. Spring, Summer and Winter can be so unpredictable. Planning a summer barbecue? It'll rain. Dreaming of a white christmas? It's sunny. But in Autumn, the leaves always fall. Like torn off, scattered pieces of brown packaging paper. Deep mahogany. Sickly yellows. Natures confetti.


I hadn't planned on colour coordinating nature with my accessories, but how well do the leaves go with my new

Marb B Helena Bag

?


Marc B seem to nail every handbag trend: totes, tans, structures, chains, quilting. What surprised me the most was the quality of the bags against their affordable prices. From the gorgeous leopard print (swoon) lining, to the quality super stylish structuring of the bag, to the little gold studs adorning the bottom of the bag to protect it, the

Helena Bag

 oozes classic simple chic.


I felt like a modern little red in this outfit, with the basket filled with snacks for dear old grandma replaced by a gorgeous handbag. Oh yeah, and no big scary wolf. Not only does it look beautiful, it's practical too (something we all know is rare in fashion). There are two separate zipped compartments, one with a slip pocket for your phone (lets be real now, half of the time spent in our handbags is used up on delving into the depths of unorganised girl mess to retrieve the long lost phone). This way I can stuff one side with my iPad, planner, phone and notebook (the important, practical, journalistic necessities). The other compartment? That's being filled with makeup, a copy of Vogue, and a crunchie bar. You know, equally practical necessities...
