Cath Kidston Weekend Carry All
Advantages: Gorgeous Floral Design which is Easy to Wipe Clean
Disadvantages: Not big Enough to be a bag to go away with for the Weekend
Well what a perfect oppurtunity to review my much loved Cath Kidston bag since it has been bumped up into the highest Dooyoo miles category! This 'Weekend Carry All' is the one and only Cath Kidston bag that I own as they aren't cheap and personally I don't buy that many hadnbags compared to what I do clothes etc. Cath Kidston is most famous for her floral kitsch sort of designs which mainly consists of handbags and purses but she does make other things for the home to which are equally lovely.
There are a few different Cath Kidston designs available and although they are all mostly floral, there are one or two other variations such as star patterns - they are all very feminine! My favourite pattern of Cath Kidston is the Red/Pink rose on the White background which is exactly why I opted for this particular bag when browsing through the many designs available. I bought it online so I hadn't had a proper look at the bag to see what the quality was like, so I was really hoping for the best. I paid £28 for it so I figured it wouldn't be too bad and also since it was described as a 'Weekend Carry All' I knew that it was going to be a decent size which is what I needed.
On its arrival, I wasn't disappointed as first of all the size was perfect for me. I wouldn't exactly say it is a bag that you could go away for the weekend with and fit all of your essentials in - it's a bit too small for that, but it is certainly bigger than a regular handbag and therefore I can fit all of my stuff as well as my baby son's stuff such as nappies etc. when we are going out. That is mostly what I use the bag for and it houses everything in there very well!
The material of the bag is like a PVC coated cloth which I've found very easy to wipe clean - thanks goodness as I've had a few spillages! The colours of the bag and the Rose patterns were perfect and exactly as the photograph on online had shown, I was concerned that it would turn up and be a bit darker than the picture and look a bit dated - but it is is perfect! The handle of the bag and the zip also feel very sturdy and although I've owned this bag for almost 1 year now, the stitching etc. is all still great and it's as sturdy as ever.
My only niggle with the bag is that it could have done with more pockets on the inside as that is where I like to store things like my mobile phone & lip gloss etc. so I sometimes have to spend a while rooting through the bag to find what it is I'm looking for. If I'm really honest I think this bag incorporates style more than practicality. As I mentioned earlier, as a travel bag it isn't ideal because it isn't big enough for that type of thing. But if like me you carry a lot round with you on your daily outings, then this bag is very handy.
Summary: Sooo Pretty!
