Bag Lust: The Mari Tote by Accessorize

The Mari Tote from Accessorize is my new favourite bag. I have been in the market for a large handbag for the Autumn but my criteria is so specific that I find it difficult to find a decent match. Firstly, I need the bag to be rather large. I carry an A4 notebook around on a daily basis along with an array of junk to fill the gaps. I really don't want to be seen as the bag lady with a different bag for each item when I could just have one large one handbag for everything. 

I also need the bag to have colour. I am not one for a sensible black bag. Sure, it goes with everything. But colour makes me happy and a colourful handbag will make me happier. Then, of course, there is the price tag. I am a girl on a serious budget. I can dream of deliciously soft leather bags, but right now they can stay firmly routed to my Pinterest wish list. And most importantly, the design of the handbag needs to be a little bit  sleek, a little bit sophisticated and a little bit "hello, I'm a lovely handbag, check me out" kind of thing. (I'm sure there is a better adjective for that).
The Mari Tote scores very well on my stipulated criteria. It comes in a variety of gorgeous colours - green, black, camel, silver, tan, and blue snakeskin. The design has clean distinct lines and it is over-sized. Plus the price comes in at a not-too-shabby £38. I rather like this handbag.  


  1. Oh goodness I am so impressionable that I went straight out and bought it! Green winter bag win!

  2. Does anyone have any advice on colouring of the bags? I want the tan brown one but I'm not sure whether it's actually as dark as it is displayed on the site compared to the camel one as shown here. Thanks :-)Please reply on my Tumblr!
