Girls got Kicks

It seems I have found my perfect handbag from Rhodesian of Edinburgh!

I first came across the company a couple of Months ago at the Scotland Re:designed pop up in Edinburgh’s Ocean Terminal  (perfect place for Christmas Presents btw!), I got speaking to the owners Katrina and Charlotte about their amazing handbags, how it all came about, what their plans are and lots and lots of puppy chat! 

In 2010 Charlotte was diagnosed with a disorder which left her in severe amounts of pain, after a long time trying to come to terms with this she received a little bundle of joy…a tiny Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy! This gave her a new lease of life and after lots of brainstorming Katrina and Charlotte decided to start ‘Rhodesian of Edinburgh’ in 2013 (guess where the inspiration for the name came from?!), they wanted to create something unique and keep it made in the UK, I for one am in love with the whole collection! 

This little number is called cassi and is fully customisable, coming in a massive range of colours to choose from, meaning that you can make your dream handbag too! I went for pure white and baby pink and I can’t put her down! The fact that the inside of the bag is massive totally helps too, I can fit all my clutter that I seem to accumulate and the front little pocket is perfect for business cards and an oyster card/travel pass. Be aware that internally the bag is super clean, no pockets! This is due to the fact that the leather used is just cut and sewn, the edges are not finished and this creates really clean lines and sharp looking edges.

Which bag would you go for?

Jumper – Isabel Marant for H&M
Faux Fur Collar – Urban Outfitters
Textured Pencil Skirt – Topshop
Socks – Bebaroque
Shoes – Kickers
