big box little box

Thursday, 21 April 2011


How perfect is this? I've wanted a box bag for a long time but none seemed to be exactly what I had in mind. This Miss Selfridge beauty is actually my ideal box bag - the perfect tan colour, dark brown details (cute corner patches or what?) and clearly, well, a box shape. The website is supremely helpful in that I don't know how large it is. Knowing my luck, it will be just that bit too small. I carry a lot of stuff.

What would be your ideal spring bag? Apart from a gloriously tasseled specimen, I don't think it gets much better than this one.

  1. That bag is amazing.

    That's one of my pet peeves - websites not giving any idea of the size/dimensions of bags! So annoying, yet so common! Why has no one realised that we need to know these things!?

    Have you ordered it? Hope it's the perfect size :)

  4. Wow that is a really unique sort of bag! But I bet it will be small, I can't stand it when they don't give the measurements. I carry tons of stuff too, I like having a weighty sort of bag, I think my shoulder is just used to it ha!

    Urrrmmmm, I'd like a couple more satchels in various colours e.g. navy, red and green!

  22. Aha, you're right, decent box bags are SO hard to come across. This one is lovely alright though. I've been scouring my local charity shops in the hope of stumbling across one, they tend to have odd things like that. I've been carting around my giant straw beach bag, need something new, but big, too.

  26. Yes, it would be really annoying if you could only fit your wallet in it... Order it and find out!? x

  31. N'awwwwhh that is so cute! I can imagine the bruised thighs though... I'm so clumsy it would bash against me if I took it out for the day dear me. Very pretty though, perfect for picnics! ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  33. That bag is really cute! My friend used to carry around a vintage hat box as her purse. It looked great and was really unusual. I love purses with interesting shapes.
