“ Brand: Fiorelli / Type: Handbag „
I recently reviewed my current handbag, which is a pink and yellow satchel from Warehouse. While I do carry this bag with me most of the time, I like to go for something smaller and less casual when I'm going on a night out. I usually go for something black with a long strap, which is why I was initially drawn to the Fiorelli bag shown above when I first saw it. I didn't go out to buy a going out bag, and in fact when I found it was looking to get a day bag in exchange for one my mam had bought me but I wasn't keen on. However, I didn't find a daytime bag that I was mad enough on to replace the one I'd got as a present, and so decided to swap it for the bag shown above instead.
== Fiorelli Piccu Bow X Body Bag ==
As you can undoubtedly see in the photo above, this is a mainly black bag, whose front is dominated by a large, bronze covered bow, which forms the flap of the bag. This fastens to the rest of the bag via a magnet clip and can be easily opened and closed. The rest of the bag is black and has a zip on top, meaning your belongings are doubly protected. Inside there is a main section as well as another zipped section. It's not a massive bag but is pretty standard for an evening/clubbing bag and it does fit in all the essentials, such as ID, phone, money and a lip-gloss. The bag has a long thin strap so it can go over either shoulder and hangs at around hip height. There is also a large proper hand bag version available but I found the bow to be far too big and was definitely more of a fan of the smaller one.
== What I Thought ==
I really love this bag. I found it really eye-catching and stylish when I first saw it and I still feel that way now. It is perfect for nights out as it fits everything I need easily (some similar bags don't quite let you squeeze a passport inside, which is my only ID). It also is simple but genuinely lovely looking and livens up plain black outfits, while still complementing more patterned or interesting ones. Unlike my day handbag, this bag hasn't inspired any compliments from other people, but this hasn't stopped me from really liking it myself. The inside zipped section is perfect for keeping money hidden in case someone does manage to get into the main section of the bag, but considering the main zip and the clip both safeguard this central section, it's unlikely people would be able to get into it while you're wearing it without you noticing.
== Conclusion ==
This is a lovely bag that I take on every night out. It has enough space for all my going out needs as well as looking lovely with basically all of my going out outfits. I highly recommend it if you can find it on Ebay, as even though I bought it just a few months ago, it doesn't appear to still be available in shops. The larger one may still be in some shops, though, as I do remember seeing it when I was in Debenhams recently. You can currently find this one for £30 on Ebay, which is roughly the same price as I paid in the shop for it.
