Oh, I do love a big, shiny handbag. But when I say big, I really mean big - it has to fit a whole ton of crap in it: not only the essentials, but everything from books, to all my make-me-look-vaguely-presentable tools, plus flat shoes for heel days (I'm a wimp when it comes to long days in heels).
So a bowling bag must be perfect: if their traditional use is considered, they surely must be hefty and sturdy enough to hold bowling shoes and EVEN a bowling ball, surely? And they come in all kinds of pretty colours:
Linea bowling bag from House of Fraser is almost too shiny even for me, but OH MY is it lovely. Big without being bulky, it's a slightly pricy £79 but I'm still tempted.
For a slightly nicer sounding £50, I am rather taken with the remarkable shade of green flaunted by this Storm bag at Simply Be. The feather charm will just make me feel even more like a peacock, but I think I can live with that.
The thing with bags is, I like ones that match all my clothes. That's where this chic black and white Oasis bowler comes in handy, and it's only £35! John Lewis, you are too good to me.
Topshop have bowled me over (well I had to fit it in somewhere, didn't I?) with their Clean bowling bag in a fetching grey. It's £40.
House of Fraser. This one is called the Abbey Road bowling bag: a Beatles reference, I'm sold! It's so worth the £69, but quick! There's only 4 left...
Groovy Love bowling bag for £65 (also at House of Fraser). Oh Fiorelli, what are you doing to me?
Please help me decide by telling me your favourite from this beautiful bunch of bowlers.
