John Rocha Black 'Lexus' Frill Shoulder Bag

I've desperately needed a new bag for ages now, so I didn't have to think twice about what to ask for from my parents for my recent birthday.

During a recent shopping trip I quickly spotted the black ‘lexus’ frill shoulder bag by John Rocha for Debenhams and straight away thought that it perfectly suited what I was looking for.

Brand new, labels and all

I wanted something fashionable yet classic, adaptable and practical, as this bag will mainly be used for work.  However I also wanted something that could look ‘dressed-up’ if I wanted to wear it out for a meal etc and I think the gorgeous frills add just that touch.  I tend to carry a lot around with me too (at any one time: purse, keys, gloves, umbrella, sunglasses, novel, Italian dictionary, make-up, the list goes on and on…!) so the fact that this bag has a 3 different compartments is a definite plus!  I'm really pleased with the quality of this bag, the leather is lovely and soft, the inner finishing is great for the price, and now I've road-tested this to work I know that it can comfortably fit all the junk that I insist on carrying around!!  I just wish that it came it some different colours!  ...I’m not sure I would have gone for anything different though, I have a light coloured leather jacket which I’m going to be wearing more as the weather gets nicer, so I think black would be the best contrast against this, rather than any kind of camel or teal colour, which potentially could clash.
