Blake small satchel, €298

One of the things I spotted at Arnotts pre-Christmas SS14 press launch were some super-cute bags in brights and holo-metallics. Fitting nicely into this year’s penchant for the easy-to-sling tiny cross-body, there are also bigger offerings and really nicely detailed clutches. The brand itself is a US one, known for its prints and prices are accessible – you’ll pay about €350 for a big bag, so it’s not going to bankrupt anyone.

Here’s a little look at what Arnotts has in store, baggsie something in lime, and something in silver, mmmkay?
