|Voyager Elite Wreath Red, was £164.95 now £129.95|
Really, I loved the Poppins bag nickname. I adored that part of the film where she keeps on bringing furniture out of her carpet bag, and while, sadly, I never was able to fit a standard lamp (switched on, if you please) into my bag, I did have an actual carpet bag which I treasured throughout my teen years.
|Grace Tessera Light clutch bag - was £39.95, now £24.95|
The Voyager Elite style, shown here in navy and wreath red at the top, is my favourite. I love the richness of the colours chosen, and the no-nonsense Poppinsness of the shape. It's £129.94 down from £164.95.
This lovely tote is perfect for swishing over your arm and going off on impromptu travels - that's what the Victorians used them for, anyway. The Amenity Pergola is shown here in a special colour for 2014, "the year of the green-blue Horse", which is significantly more advanced than I knew, which was basically "Um...I think it's the year of the Horse? Possibly? Can't quite recall." It's £129.95 down from £149.95. If you're feeling particularly Sluttery Fantasy, team it up with a pair of Charlotte Olympia's birthday shoes - in the Horse style, naturally.
"Kat, I do not have £130 to spend on a handbag this or any month. Sort me out with something more realistic but still Poppinsy."
Your word, etc. The Grace Bukhara clutch bag is £24.95 down from £39.95 and comes in this great red, and the blonde shown at the top. Made of Carpet do a bunch of fabulous smaller bag designs, including those lovely delicate small bags with a chain called "reticule framed". It even sounds like it belongs in the V&A. Glamour.
For something completely different, try popping this amazing tote bag over your arm: Enigma Bukhara. It snaps shut and has two pockets inside, one zipped, and it's £49.95 down from £69.95.
If you're not quite up for going full-Victoriana (WHAT? *reaches for smelling salts*), then these Torba bags are for you: vintage sack-style bags with a flap and fabulous handles. The Intarsia Navy (bottom) is £139.95 down from £154.95 and the Pergola Light is £114.95 down from £149.95. And if you sniggered at bottom, then Mary Poppins cannot help you, but it's a good excuse to watch a lot of Rik Mayall clips on YouTube instead.
