Handbag Flowers

Handbags. That one word has a hypnotic effect on me and I have loved them since 1984.

In today's post, I wanted to show you how easy it is to take a big bag, add a big flower and have a big look for the new season. If you too love bags and like to show some style, try my suggestion.

I am obsessed with orange and October is the month to flaunt it.

This total look cost me less than £10. I am a fan of colour blocking and the flower is my perfect partner.

The bag was £6 from Primark.

The flower brooch was £3 from Evie Rose.

To get this look, you will need:

Big bag in a bold colour  (Any excuse to buy a new one!)
Large flower brooch

Take your bag and swing it on to your shoulder. Get a feel for how you will carry it as this dictates where your flower should go.

Remove all tags.

Decide where you want the flower to sit. A single flower is best suited to the end of the handle.

Unpin the safety clasp and take care when attaching to the bag.

And here is the final look. I love it.

Have fun with your bags and create your own style. You could use beads or make yourself a handbag charm, following my blog-make from last month:

For more chic styling, look out for my upcoming post on how to use scarves and neckerchiefs on your bags.
