Fiorelli Bags

I bought my first Fiorelli bag about 15 years ago, which I don't have any more, but I've never stopped loving their diverse range of bags and accessories. I may have gone slightly mad in the last two months alone though, having bought 5 new bags for myself and 2 for my Mum...but I still say you can never have too many!

The quality of the bags is always as you'd expect, and the best part is how affordable they all are. I think there's something for everyone, whatever your style, which is obviously a bit dangerous when you're only looking for one bag, but a great asset to them to be able to cater for so many tastes.  

Reviews of all of these beauties will be here at some point, after I've been able to use each one for more than a day (!), so stay tuned. In the meantime, take a look at some of the gorgeous bags on offer over on I dare you to resist!

Michael Kors Jet Set Tote Review, White

How perfect is this bag? I think you have to agree that the crisp white and clean black lines mixed with the gold detail makes this one of the most stunning Michael Kors bags on offer.

I've had the black version (review here) for a while now, and intended to buy this one instead at the time, but I let my sensible side get the better of me and stuck to the safer colour. However, using the bag for a while, the style and practicalities seemed to fit with everything, from the office or dinner, to shopping or the gym. So I thought it was an obvious decision to buy the white version I so badly wanted in the first place!                          

One of the most valuable features of these Jet Set Totes is the feet, especially with this colour. I still love the variation of pockets, with slim and deep, open pockets against both sides of the bag's interior as well as a large zipped pocket across the whole width. This makes it perfect for taking on your travels and can keep your passport and money safely zipped away but still give you quick access to your phone. Plus, the design so perfectly compliments any outfit you'd wear while waiting to board a flight to Milan or Paris.

The little extras, like the clasp across the top of the bag and the one attached inside for your keys, make you feel as though every improvement you'd make on other bags have been brought into this one, leaving me with no criticisms at all.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking to add a touch of class to your collection, or if you're looking for just one special purchase, whether as a gift for your lucky Mum or just a gift for yourself! They're available in a lot of department stores, but I've found the ranges differ quite a lot, so I'd recommend ordering online to avoid disappointment. The bad news is, I can't seem to find this exact version online at the moment, only the slimmer alternative, but its just a eye-catching!

I'd love to hear if you're thinking of buying one of these beauties or if you already own one, equally, if there's anything you want to know, so leave me a comment or drop me a line on Twitter.

Happy shopping!
