Another crazy week, another hastily thrown-together outfit. I wanted to debut this pretty Irregular Choice satchel bag, which I received as a surprise gift from a lovely friend who wanted to put a smile on my face. (Thanks love, it worked!)

I love the fact that there are pandas hidden in the tiny floral print. I've made a dress in a different colourway of this fabric and have a pair of shoes in a different colourway again.

I combined it with some old favourites (the shoes and cardigan) and one of the dresses I made for the One Week, One Pattern challenge. I was pretty glad to rediscover this coat when I went to rescue my things from the ex's house the other day. I've missed it!

When this goes live I'll be delivering a training session, which will be annoying as I've got such a sore throat at the moment. I hope it passes by the time I go to Vegas!!

    1. The necklace was a total £1 bargain in the sale, years ago now. The colours seem to go with so many things.

  4. That bag! When and where did your friend buy it? I've just tried searching for it and can't find it on the IC website - I bought the same fabric and made an Emery dress from it, would love to have a matching bag (and shoes!). I suppose I could always buy some more fabric and make my own bag.

    1. I'm not sure :( I've never seen it for sale on their website, and their panda prints were out a while ago. I think she may have got it from a sample sale or maybe eBay? I wish I'd managed to get that fabric in the purple as well as the yellow.
