You can always rely on a pair of pretty red shoes to lift the spirits on a Wednesday morning – and aren’t these just peachy? These Chia Mihara Osmo sandals (yes, really!) cost £225 and I found them on a rather nifty little online vintage-inspired boutique called Ruby Plum. Choc full with gorgeous dresses, knits and bags, the only problem is deciding what to keep in my basket!
I have had my eye on this Marianne bag (£130) for some time and may have to start dropping some p-r-e-t-t-y heavy hints soon to the other half. Surely I deserve it?!?!!
Oh God! Don’t you just LOVE these oversized clutch bags by Nigerian designer, Dolapo James- who also goes under the name of Urban Knit. They cost £79 and the vibrant mix of Englishness and African textiles just works. I am coveting one of these – badly!
I spotted them on The Shop Project (theshopproject.com) but I warn you – you will get addicted – it is my fab find of the moment.
I LOVE letters and typography and all that jazz – I think my penchant for the humble letter comes from never ever ever getting any gift with my name on when I was a child (Veritys can n’er be found on keyrings, pencil cases, badges, you name it (badum bum) they just don’t do Veritys!) Thankfully, now there are so many unique web shops out there selling all manner of letter-inspired stuff, I can find something to satisfy the addiction, so here is my pick:
Alphabet Bags (see main image) does what it says on the tin, good price and eye-catching…they cost around £9 and I reckon they look rather swish.
Kikki K – Aussie shop that sells exquisite stationary – like this set of alphabet stamps which costs AUD$ 24.95 and this super cute apple stamp (ok it’s not a letter but i can’t resist!) which is a tasty AUD $8.95.
Over on Etsy there is a whole feast of typographical treats to tantalise the design tastebuds – I love the witty designs of Alexandra Ferguson – check out her shop
Cushions are pricy at around US$90 but man, oh man, they are on my wish list!
One more…another Etsy find, these cute applique letter purses by Chirp and Bloom would look pretty in my handbag carrying my old bus tickets and loose change no doubt! They cost around £15 each.

It’s Friday, which means the weekend and I cannot tell you just how relieved I am that the week is over! So happy, that I have dedicated today to my ‘Bag Lusts’ – I do hope you enjoy my offerings!
First up is the fabulous Emma Gordon who creates exquisite bags such as the one above and also the one below (so good she warrants two images!) The prices are very reasonable too – this clutch below costs a mere £44- and it’s sooooo pretty!
Or how about the quirky Lost in Love tote by Every Little Counts – a snip at $18 and you can buy online.

Oh go on, one more, it IS Friday afterall…
