Bags of enthusiasm, bags of cash, bags of energy, bags of time,
If it's in the bag, or it's not your bag, here's my simple little rhyme,
Have you noticed if you've 'bags' of something, its always something great,
Unless they're under your eyes of course, those ones we tend to hate!
However, if you can bag yourself a bargain or bag yourselves a treat,
Then these are the bags that turn out to be something rather neat,
Ladies love their handbags, more than even chocolate some may say,
Whether its cross body, clutch, shopper, satchel, tote, have you got all day?
They're an essential part of our wardrobe a stylish and practical need,
And finding the perfect 'newbie' for your collection is a joy indeed!
So many brands to choose from and so many styles to peruse,
If you're looking for your next bag we've got exciting news!
One store has hundreds to pick from and it's now its time to shine
The cat is out of the bag! HOF's new season collection is in store & online!
This video sums up our week! We had a fabulous time working with the lovely Ruth Langsford on her new show at QVC. Having worked with Ruth for years on ITV's This Morning, it was such a treat to work with her again, she's been busy behind the scenes at QVC choosing her favourite pieces from their huge selection of brands and we love the outfits she chose! Ruth Langsford's 'Fashion Edit' will now be live on QVC every Thursday evening at 9pm for the next few weeks and we can't wait to work with her again! After modeling lots of lovely new items on the catwalk at the 'shopping channel', we were in the mood for some shopping ourselves! Why not?! The new collections are slowly appearing across stores and we thought we'd check out what's going to be inspiring us all in these coming weeks on the High Street leading up to Spring. It really can't come soon enough, we can't wait for the clocks to 'spring forward' on the 26th March and give us the promise of slightly warmer longer days! We saw some fabulous new fabrics and shapes coming in for Spring but whilst we may not quite be ready to relinquish our boots and coats just yet there is definitely one new season item it's always the right time to shop for, no matter the weather, BAGS! ...and it just so happens as we mentioned in our poem above, House of Fraser has launched its new season in stores and online this weekend! We went to check out what's new and hopefully find a little inspiration! See a selection of our favourites below. We concentrated on classic black investment bags that will always be a timeless addition to any collection but there is so much to see. Visit www.housefraser.co.uk and have a little look yourselves at the full range and see our picks below.

Linea Clarissa Mini Tote £40 www.houseoffraser.co.uk The epitome of a classic handbag, this bag won't take away from your outfit but will compliment almost any attire. Great size, great price, uber classic and great for everyday use.
Michael Kors Raven Shoulder Tote Bag £285 www.houseoffraser.co.uk We're not huge fans of massive branding on bags, so we love the fact this is fairly understated. The large chunky gold hardware gives it an edge but without being too much of a fashion statement.
Therapy Mini Fiona Frame Handbag £29 www.houseoffraser.co.uk A hint of vintage, this one has 'bags of charm!' Perfect for a special occasion or as an alternative to a clutch for a night out or dinner date.
DKNY Pinstripe Quilt Chain Tote Bag £300 www.houseoffraser.co.uk A bit more of an investment purchase but the luxurious buttery leather combined with the chain detail had us hooked! This is the kind of bag that would become your new best friend that you want to take everywhere with you!
DKNY Pinstripe Small Crossbody Bag £135 www.houseoffraser.co.uk A smaller version but in the same new 'Pinstripe' collection from DKNY above. The cross body works perfectly for ladies who love to be hands free whilst shopping or sipping cocktails but could work just as well as an everyday bag in the office. Sleek, sophisticated and stylish.
Disaster Taa Daa Star Pouch NOW £12 www.houseoffraser.co.uk We couldn't resist sharing this little pouch but it's in the sale now and it's going quick! A fabulous gift for someone you think is a star in your life or a great treat for yourself to use inside your handbag for storing small essentials.
