Hello friends! It has been a substantial amount of time since my last post; predominately because I have been off work, traveling around and drinking copious amounts of delicious wine. If you follow me on Instagram you may have caught my Instastories documenting some of what I was up to (when I remembered). But alas, all good things come to an end and after 3 weeks of fun times, its back to reality.
Recently Vilma Boutique sent me a message on Twitter, asking if I would like to try one of their vegan handbags. Now I am the kinda girl who will use a handbag to death. I hate handbag shopping, I almost never have a cool or trendy handbag and once I have used my handbag to the point where the fake cheap leather is falling apart, I will only then resolve to the fact that I need a new one. Usually the most inexpensive and satisfactory looking one in the first store I go in.
So when this message came along, as I am sure you can imagine, I was quite pleased. Because, yes of course, I would love a new handbag. Please and thank you, Vilma Boutique.
Vilma Boutique provide high quality, luxury vegan handbags, they believe in sustainability and are against animal cruelty. All of which resonates well with me, and although I am not vegan, I am making changes to my lifestyle to better support a vegan way of living.
Once my handbag arrived I was very excited to try it out. The packaging was a bit damaged from it’s long trip from Europe, but thankfully the handbag was unharmed. Vilma Boutique sent me a very chic minimalist clutch, which I immediately thought would be the perfect accessory for a special occasion where I was able to get glammed up. This particular bag doesn’t have any inner compartments and is shut with a single magnetic dome and is lined with a gorgeous polka dot fabric. The vegan leather looks identical to actual leather and feels sturdy and durable and the finish is lovely. The only slight issue I had with the bag was that the Vilma label fell off, but that was an easy enough fix with some glue.
I’ve worn my bag to a few weddings and find it very comfortable; it’s big enough to fit your phone, touch up makeup, wallet/purse and sunglasses without looking too bulky or full and it always gets compliments. I have however managed to lose a lipstick out of it… this could be because of the single dome close – but is more than likely a result of having a few too many wines. But still something to bear in mind, especially if its your favourite lippy.
Vilma have been lovely to communicate with and have responded to any questions I have promptly. Vilma Boutique stock a wonderful selection of styles – from tote bags, to clutches to glasses cases (which are adorable and I am purchasing one on payday) all of which come in a good selection of colours. All their bags have a look of chic and come in at a very reasonable price. They also have FREE worldwide shipping – need I say more?

Until next time
