gleaming ⌒°(ᴖ◡ᴖ)°⌒ Ina Kent bag


I bought this treasure after a long search for a new bag. Always on the quest for that perfect bag, the right size, zip closure, not heavy, simple design but something a bit different. This one ticks all the boxes for me and it looks extraordinary. I got the AD LIB4 by Ina Kent in Metallic/Taupe on sale from Place - the owner Juliana was super nice and quickly answered some specific questions I had before I bought it. It arrived quickly and was lovingly packaged. I might have gasped... look at that beautiful metallic leather!


I tend to carry quite a lot of stuff but don't always need it all and sometimes want a smaller bag. This bag is amazing and has been cleverly designed to be totally adaptable - a clutch, an over the shoulder, a backpack; you can wear it full size, slouched, slightly folded and folded in half; you can easily adjust the length of the straps to suit. There's an easy to follow video that shows you how!

The leather feels so soft and is fabulous quality. The shoulder strap is really comfortable, even when the bag is stuffed full, and the hardware feels sturdy. This is the kind of bag that will get even better with age and I'm in love! Bonus that it is made in Europe.




This week I picked up a Kaffe Fassett print from Patchfinders, the funny thing about working in a fabric shop is you sometimes can't see the trees for the wood. We stock so many fabrics and occasionally a customer will chose a fabric that I overlooked or didn't like before! This Freckles print was one of those and I had to get some, I have fallen for the pattern and the fun colours. These pictures don't do it justice, it was impossible to get the colours right - the background is really much more green. It's kind of wild!

  1. That bag is amazing! Just the fact that it's metallic, but all the options make it great! What an interesting print. It isn't at all what I usually expect of a Kaffe print, but it is really cool!

  2. I do like Kaffe Fassett, liked the wild and wonderful stuff back in the 1980s and like the calmer stuff now too.
    That bag will go anywhere, won't it?

  4. I do like that bag! I can see you put as much thought into your bag as I do. And a pewter color is my absolute go with everything color. Nice job!
