Party Bags – Sweets Optional!

We’re not talking party bags as in kid’s party party bags here. But feel free to pop sweeties in them if you like! We’re talking party bags for the big Christmas party night out. It’s time to ditch the carry-all you normally lug around with you ( if you are anything like us) and replace it with a gorgeous, impractical, stylish, sparkly party bag, in the form of a clutch!

From beads, to chains, sequins to prints, holographic leather, to metallic finishes, your party bag should make a festive statement of its very own!

Gold and black is a big theme this festive season, and there are loads of lovely metallic bags around. Beads are another big trend, and of course, pink makes an appearance too – watch out for the continuing pink trend into next season as well.
