Hi Everyone
Do you remember a while ago I wrote about the fabulous day at Scoop London? If you haven’t read it you can catch it HERE
If you did read it you may remember how much I was drooling over the fabulous creations by Nadia Minkoff. I had been following Nadia via Twitter and Instagram, so was pleased when I got to see the brand in the flesh…..

Now when I find a brand I love, I like to share with everyone! Nadia got in touch and asked if I would like to be gifted with something to share with my readers……….

When the postman delivered the parcel I was so surprised ! It was the one I was wishing for, all wrapped in it’s own duster bag . The “St. JOHNS WOOD TOTE” which has been the top seller for some time.

I couldn’t wait to get all my daily needs into this bag and take it for a test drive…..

The leather is buttery soft,and you know you are holding a top quality hand bag. I am always one for bargain trends, but I never scrimp on my handbags. I know this is going to be with me day in day out and go through the mill of everyday life….

One of the design features of the st. Johns Wood Tote that I think is great, is the length of the handle straps. Not too long that it’s nearly hitting the floor, and not too short to sit on your shoulder. And I love the gold magnetic disc that has the power to hold it all shut.It’s been a little windy here of late!

Shirt – Primark  Tank – Choice stores  Skirt – Autograph M&S  Shoe’s – Autograph M&S


I Love the colour too. A change from winter black or brown. It was one of the things that drew me to the brand was the array of different colour palette’s Nadia provides

                          It’s not too early for a bit of Christmas sparkle right !!!

               Another fine feature are the gold feet that protect the base of the bag

The whole innards of the bag is attached to a gold press stud at each side of the bag. So handy for keeping clean. plus inside there is a zip up pocket and a couple of open pockets, so it’s a real organiser bag too,

I absolutely love this bag! I already have an evening clutch on my Christmas wish list. Please take time to have a browse at the Nadia Minkoff website, it’s not just bags, there are beautiful jewels too!

    Oh my goodness that bag is beautiful you lucky thing! Fabulous colour, as you say makes a change from black or brown. Did you say that skirt was from Primark????? Wow, you'd never have guessed and you look amazing young lady.

      Steph, the black shirt is from Primark £8 I bought them in so many colours and they were worth every penny. The skirt is Autograph although I did buy it new from Ebay £6 They are still available
