A tale of three handbags
Quick interlude: have a look at the happy couple. This was definitely one of the nicest weddings we've been to in years; romantic and meaningful without being formal. I'm still seriously mushy when I think about it.
House of Foxy hostess dress because I still haven't lost my Christmas chub and it's one of the few wedding-suitable dresses I own that still fits nicely. My Hush Puppies shoes and black velvet jacket, plus a good squirt of Fracas, completed things.
Cate sent me to thank me for knitting her a tank top. Look at that fab faux tortoiseshell clasp! It'll go perfectly with my 1960s Top Modes sundress. And Claire and Miss Mouse sent me the tapestry-fronted bag a few weeks ago. I really like it; it's modern, but the tapestry panel gives it a vintage feel, and it's a good daybag as it's large enough to squash a book or small bits of shopping into. There's a pocket on the back that is just right for holding my phone and/or iPod as I go on my morning walk. Thanks to the aforementioned Christmas chub, I'm trying to do my walks more regularly.
