This new-to-me French brand has actually been around for over 60 years - where have I been? I came across Carré Royal recently and was really impressed by the quality and style of their product, not to mention the reasonable price points. Perhaps the fact that I've only recently discovered the brand is a good thing - it's not on everyone! Here are a few of my favourite pics from their collection:

I was really excited when I came across the Clare Vivier brand. I was immediately struck by the classic-but-with- a-twist designs making them practical enough to use day in day out without being bor

ed. Beautiful Italian leather in gorgeous colours with bright, contrasting zips add a splash of colour. Clare Vivier bags are very reasonably priced for a product that you will be able to use year in year out. 

Based in California, Clare Vivier products are all handmade locally and often made to order. The good news is that Clare Vivier ships internationally and if the product is available at the time of order it will ship within 2 days but if it is to be made to order it will ship within 10 days. Monogramming is also available on some products which make lovely, personalised gifts (or just special treats for yourself ;-)) Here are some of my favourites…
