My little thatched cottage..

Thatched Cottage Bag: Vendula London*
Vendula Collage



When I mentioned last week that I'd discovered a pretty wonderful new site for cute handbags, I didn't dream for one second that I'd be unwrapping my very own the following week!

I'm absolutely smitten with this thatched cottage box bag. The level of detail on the bag is amazing. Just look at the flowers around the door, the engraving around the hardware, the stitched textured leather "thatching" above the door, and what I think is my favourite aspect..the tiny picket fence and blades of grass, which are cut so as to give a three-dimensional effect.

Inside, the story continues. The bag is lined with a lovely soft cotton in the signature London print which you'll find in all of the Vendula London bags. The box bags are plenty big enough for all of the things I carry around with me daily. Plus, it arrived in it's own pretty little dust-bag, which I love as it means I can keep it on the shelf and be sure it will stay in pristine condition.

I cannot wait to use this bag to finish off infinite outfits. What would you wear this with? Are you tempted by any of the Vendula London funky bags. I can honestly say I'd wholeheartedly recommend them.

  2. How did that happen then? Did they just decide to send you one randomly or did you ask them? Great timing to receive one a week after your wishlist! It is very, very cute and I'm sure you'll make it look even prettier with many outfits.x

    1. It would never occur to me to ask for things like that. I know other bloggers who say that works for them but it just seems a little too impolite for my liking.

    2. I have no idea how the whole items sent to review thing works so I am genuinely intrigued how you/anyone come/s to be sent something like this! I wasn't sure if Blogger x says, "Hey, I love your bags, they are so nice!" on twitter and then the brand goes, "Cool, would you like a bag?" or if they notice a lot of traffic coming to their site from the url and then think, "Hmmm..." or they just randomly find you- I'd love to know!' - it just seemed excellent timing after your post! Not wanting to imply you were impolitely asking, sorry if that was the impression, I gave! You are, of course, very polite!x
