Update 31/07/18: Awaiting a parcel!

I have spent a lot of the day checking my emails for a notification that my new handbag is on the way at last! The email has not arrived at the time of writing, but I am full of hope that it will very soon.

There has been a bit of a saga about this purchase. At the beginning of the month, I ordered a gorgeous new bag from the same company who made my beloved metallic navy blue one – Marco Massaccesi. Unfortunately, there has been a bit of an issue but I am happy to say that their customer service is brilliant and very quick to respond. It should be on its way right now and I am hoping that it will arrive tomorrow or Thursday, when all will be revealed.

Until the “big reveal” I will upload a collage of my first purchases from Massaccesi: my midi-zip Selene in Deep Blue Africa leather, the matching key-ring (not shown, but still lovely as well as practical) and the midi Penelope in Bronze Africa leather. The Selene has a gorgeous marine lining and I use the Penelope as a holder for scarves or gloves inside the larger bag. I have been using these items since November 2016 and they still look almost as good as new. The pale gold hardware is top class and the workmanship is excellent.

If you look on the Massaccesi website, you can see loads of lovely designs. There are also lots of different types of leathers in beautiful colours to choose from with a range of linings in pretty shades. You can also add on other customisations so that you get the perfect handbag for your needs.

No, I am not on commission!

Best wishes,
