To prepare for this guide I chatted with quite a few women about their work bag needs. Armed with a comprehensive list of what’s in women’s work bags I began to wish Mary Poppins wasn’t a figment of Disney’s imagination, that she was on speed dial and she could reassure me there was a black leather version of her bottomless carpet bag!
It’s that time of year when invitations are being planned for work events, industry award evenings and parties. And as Chanel’s creative maestro, Karl Lagerfeld once said “one is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress.”
When you hear Bicester Village mentioned what reactions does it conjure up? Great parking? Last season’s product? Not as far from London as you first thought? 30% discounts? Well, this pedestrian high street is home to over 100 designer outlets and is the 2nd most popular attraction for Chinese tourists visiting the UK (after Buckingham Palace!)

Just in the last week I have noticed an increasing number of designers using a classic sewing technique in their handbag designs.
