Tracing Tapestry...

Thursday, March 03, 2011

So its about that time again..another Take Ten challenge! This time our lovely sponsor was Matalan who sent us all one of these tapestry bags..It reminds me of the carpet bag from Mary Poppins if only I could fit my entire life it in like she does..

I decided it looked like a proper ladies bag..like a sunday lunch kinda bag,
so i dressed it up with a peacoat and pearls..a little much maybe but I had fun with it and I liked how the rusty tones in the bag went with my coat and hair :)

I love how the other Take Ten girlies worked their bags, everyones looks are so different that I have loads of great ideas for other outfits that will work with my bag!

  1. Well, of course I'm liking how you styled this absolutely adorable bag! I think Mary Poppins' bag was a tad bit bigger which is why she was able to fit everything inside there ;)
