So, a trend I have noticed that keeps popping up everywhere this season is embroidered bags! And how lovely are they? I have my eyes firmly on the little velvet Topshop number, as I think it would look amazing with either a plain black outfit, or my leopard print jacket, and who says you can't pattern clash? Those rules are long gone.

I have already dipped into this trend, with my beautiful Zara bag pictured above. Its studded, leather, black, big enough to carry all my stuff in, has an across the body strap, and has beautiful embroidery on it. Need I go on?

Actually I will, as another big selling point on this one for me also was the zip. Strange but, the reason I was lead in the direction of a zipped bag being a must was because I had an incident on the tube - No I didn't get pick pocketed (this was also a fear though) but a big massive 'Sophie panics too much' incident occurred, where my bucket bag tipped up, everything fell out, I flapped about like usual and the poor man in front of me had to help me pick up all my belongings quickly whilst people were rushing by, all before I got to the bottom of the escalator and got crushed, there was hand cream, my purse, eyeliner and mascara everywhere. It made me so flustered!

This led me to go home and conduct an extensive search online everywhere possible for a secure bag. I ordered two from Topshop and when they arrived I didn't like them. I went into so many different shops and found nothing that I liked enough to buy, then when I went to Harrods at Christmas to see all of the pretty lights and have a little trip to the Ice Cream parlour (I totally recommend going here by the way, it was expensive but a delicious treat), I saw this in the Zara next door. And it was truly LOVE at first sight. Now she comes everywhere with me. And the best thing about it is I've never seen it again in another Zara or online, which I love as it means it isn't everywhere.

Embroidered bags are playful, and the perfect transitional accessory for now whilst it's still cold and gloomy they perk up an outfit and add some interest, and come Summer they will be perfect with little holiday dresses and denim.

I have listed and linked above some of the ones I have found online on the high street, all at various prices, but I'm hoping I have listed something for everyone! And of course, at the end I have shown a picture of the most beautiful bag from the Gucci SS17 Cruise collection. The bags in this collection are UNREAL. One can dream eh...?!

And for the creatives ones amongst you, why not purchase a plain black bag from Primark or New Look etc, and buy some iron on embroidered transfers from Ebay or a haberdashery shop and create your own? You can play around with different sized flowers like the Whistles one, or have big bold flowers like the Pretty Little Thing one. Plus, its such a nice feeling creating and making something yourself that is completely unique, and when people ask where you got it from, you can say you DIY'd it yourself.
