I can hardly believe that since my high end arm candy obsession started with my first Gucci handbag in my mid twenties, I have never actually owned a red handbag and with a wardrobe full of neutral colours like black, grey, navy and ecru, if there is one way to add a pop of colour both summer and winter to a neutral colour palette, I can't think of a better way than with a red bag.
I am already visualising accessorising my autumn (and spring) uniform of Breton top and jeans, camel and trench coats, so it looks as though it could well be one of those birthdays and Christmases where I ask purely for money to fund such a wishlist item in the January sales maybe. A lottery win would come in really handy right now.
I have to admit I am finding the large totes I have carted around for years now, becoming a bit of a pain in the ar...m (see what I did there?) if I'm honest and I am finally beginning to understand why old ladies actually carry fairly small over shoulder or across body bags!

Do you already own and love a red handbag?
