End of January is always a bit weird. Sales ended, all the festivities ended, no public holiday to look forward to soon and it is still cold and dark outside. One could say it is the perfect time to stay at home, lit the fire place (if you have some) and have a glass of wine (no guilt). I have days like this as well (especially when it is raining as a bonus) however I also now have time to go through my wardrobe and sort out seasonal clothes. Christmas and skiing holidays are over so for me winter is over as well (at least mentally anyway).
I can start thinking about what I would like to buy for the new season and how can I combine it with what I have already. Shops are already revealing their new collections so browsing through the ranks for clothes and shelves full of new great handbags is a delight. It is like a gust of fresh air promising nicer weather.
I am overly excited about the new handbags I find and as always I wonder which one will become the “it” bag of the year. This year there will be some fierce competition. It is just start of the year, so we yet need to be patient and wait who the ultimate winner will be. However I have a ultimate guide for handbags that are currently under the radar. So enough taking and lets get down to the business. For easier orientation I have divide them into three main categories (colour blocking, oversized and neutrals)
The top ten under the radar bags for 2017
