I ended up with a bit of a European theme, I guess - with the Venice print on the dress, but the Eiffel tower brooch and bag. I loved this bag when I first spotted it in the Topshop store in the Arndale centre - this would have been years ago, when novelty cute handbags were very much not the thing they are today. It reminded me of the Timmy Woods bag, which Carrie has in the house-hunting scene in the first SATC movie, which had only recently been released, and I'd been rather obsessed with it, so of course couldn't pass the bag up.
Over the years, I didn't use it very often because, well, it's wildly impractical in it's size. But hey, it's cute so I decided to use it as my first pick for my novelty bag challenge this month.
