I'm a big fan of big handbags, the kind that can easily take my make-up bag, phones (yes there's more than one...) charger cables, wallet, random everyday essentials and my Macbook, all the while keeping it's shape. This has proved harder than you'd think to find; queue Paul's Boutique Melissa oversized tote bag! This statement tote in black is the perfect everyday bag for me, the black ostrich effect font panel is a lovely little detail with bright coral trim and a gorgeous polka dot lining (very Kate Spade-esque).
In all honesty it's a million miles away from the Paul's Boutique lines we were all familiar with a few years back; much more understated and classic. The Melissa oversized tote comes in at €110, which is an absolute bargain as far as handbags go. There's been a gaping hole on the highstreet for decent classic handbags with a reasonable price point for a while now, which the new Paul's Boutique collection fills nicely. With a concession in Topshop, Oxford Circus, we're crossing our fingers for an Irish equivalent to launch, but in the meantime the full collection is available from their online store.
