I am addicted to funky bags. I can easily waste weekends sifting through them. In fact, that’s quite essentially what I just did, but this time I decided to put my past-time to good use and do some sharing!

This blog post showcases a selection of my favourite trendy, funky, cute, cool and quirky bags to help with some bag inspo for your next race day.

Whether your outfit is missing that extra something, or you’re looking for more of an on-trend look, then the right bag is the accessory you need.

Of course, some of these bags are way over the budget for most, unless you can justify by calling it a good investment piece (!!) But sometimes just looking (and drooling) can give you the inspo needed to broaden your mind for style ideas.

As a fashionista, it’s great to do a few good bag stalks throughout the year to see what’s out there and discover new brands. This year, I am loving Cult Gaia, L’afshar, Rosantica, Vanina, Dries Van Noten, 16Arlington, ASOS, Mae Cassidy, The Sant and Okhtein to name a few. You can find beautiful bags on Net-a-Porter, The Iconic, ASOS and through all the mentioned brand’s own websites.

Having just looked at over 1,000 bags…an all-day event…here are my 87 favourite clutches and bags to perfectly finish off your race day look! In the meantime, I’m off to buy a lotto ticket in the hopes of winning 50 million dollars so I can have each and every single one. Wish me luck!


Pearls gained a lot of popularity last year especially with pearl earrings, but the luxe accessory isn’t just for your ears and neck. Pearl beaded bags are a fun way to incorporate the trend into your look, creating a modern feminine look.

I don’t care how many clear clutches I see, I never get tired of them! They are just sooo pretty. Have you guys checked out L’Afshar’s lucite collection? If you haven’t, you should, like NOW! And I especially love seeing what the ladies put inside them!

Acrylic also comes in coloured non see-through bags- I love acrylic as you can have a lot of fun with the shapes and colours used in the bag whether it have a metallic finish or a marbled effect.

Metallic bags provide just the right amount of added glam and go with just about every outfit. Having a metallic bag ties in easily with earrings and is the perfect option when you want to add another colour to your outfit, but aren’t sure what will suit.
