Statement bags

'Tis the season for weddings, christenings and garden party gatherings, and as such I spent an aaaaaawfully long time a few weeks ago searching for something of a statement bag, to fill a gap in my current collection of very plain, simple leather clutches. I felt the need for one which was a bit more special, a bit more stand-out, whether in colour or sparkle or shape. And I felt quite drawn to the little, boxy kind which don't fit much in (so make sure that you wear a jacket with pockets or take your partner, for some extra carrying space).

I went for this one in the end from ASOS, but these bags below also were in contention, and some of them are now in the sale - yes, summer sale time already!
