Once You Pop You Can’t Stop

Who was your favourite cartoon character as a child? Mine was Charlie Brown and I so wanted to live in his world with Linus, Lucy, Schroeder and Peanuts. Now that I’ve discovered these dramatic comic strip bags by Pop Up Bags, I can live out my cartoon dreams in glorious technicolour with a solid bold outline. I no longer pine for Chuck but I can certainly play the part of his cartoon girlfriend with one of these scene stealers.

The Pop Up Bags website doesn’t give any indication of how long the company has been trading or give any hints about what their next range may be, but I’m certainly following them on every social media platform available because I. MUST. SEE. MORE.

Brightly Patterned Goodies

Dionne GoodingA few weeks back I posted about Demestiks New York who create great pieces using vibrant African prints that I fell in love with instantly . If African fabrics are a little too bright and attention grabbing for you to wear as clothing, how about in smaller doses in the way of accessories?

Dionne Gooding is an accessories designer who specialises in shoes and bags, utilising a variety of different types of fabrics including wax prints (Ankara), and  Kente (woven  designs) in her work. These bright pieces when teamed with plain colours would really make an outfit “pop” and I have my eye on a few items myself, particularly the clutch bags- and who doesn’t like a superbly distinctive clutch? Sign me up for just about all of them.
