I've mentioned before how, with the majority of my clothing being monochrome or just plain black, I like to have a statement bag the focus of many outfits. So, when I saw this silver one in a sale I just had to have it. It is from Matalan, I place I rarely go into, but I'm glad I did this time. I can't remember the original price, but I got it for only £7 which I thought was a great bargain!

It's a satchel style bag which is surprisingly spacious inside. Although it wouldn't hold my everyday makeup bag, purse, keys, etc. it's ideal for evenings out and ocassions! The strap has a buckle to adjust the length, and I just love the holographic finish. It gives a bit of edge to an otherwise simple bag.

Because I wanted the outfit to focus on the bag, I wore all black, but teamed it up with silver jewellery. I also went for a footwear choice with silver detailing, and these extra's tied up the look perfectly.

Do you like a statement bag? What style is your favourite?
