Competition: Village England’s Ickford

Incase I sound like a broken record, I apologise now.

But honestly, now IS great time for a new handbag and this month’s blog sponsor, Village England, has got all the arm candy you deserve at non-eyewatering prices.

Talking of deserving, you – my dear readers – are in for a massive treat as I’ve been whizzing around Village England‘s various stockists to find the perfect Life of Yablon bag as a fabulous competition prize!

I could hardly wait to drop into Anthropologie on Regent Street (the leather bag company’s latest stockist) and found their Newlyn in red cozying-up to this season’s stunning new fashion…

But the bag I’ve singled out (and worn out all month!) is the Ickford in patent (£195).

It had to be a cross body bag as that’s always my first criteria. The jet black full grain patent leather makes it perfect for day–to-night and the thick chocolate bridle leather trim makes it feel that bit more casual as well as desperately well made.

The bag’s internal pockets are strategically placed so that they work perfectly – never more than 2 seconds away from my iPhone, Oyster card nor lip gloss!

Oh and it closes magically and magnetically.

All you have to do is LIKE both Village England and Life of Yablon’s Facebook page and SHARE the competition post while telling us what you would pop into your Ickford bag? The winner will be chosen at random on 30th September 2014 and notified on Facebook.  Good luck!
