If you follow my Celebrity Style board on Pinterest then it comes as no surprise when I say I have a HUGE girl-crush on Victoria Beckham. I loved her as Posh Spice. I love her now. She’s a notoriously hard-worker, managing to be wildly successful in both the entertainment industry AND the fashion industry. No mean feat, even for the luckiest!

And I’ve already told you how adopting her morning ritual of a spoonful of bee pollen has boosted my energy and become one of my five daily essentials.

But after finally investing in one of her label’s own designs, my interest has turned into full-on obsession. I’d been eyeing this Liberty tote for weeks (I originally pinned it 23 weeks ago!) and when the end-of-season sales hit, I couldn’t resist finally taking the plunge. But nothing prepared me for how much I would love this bag in person. The design is insanely functional, with the option to cinch in the sides, as shown here, or allow the wings to spread out in more of a traditional tote shape, as seen here. The interior is a gorgeous flax linen, complimenting the POP of orange in a clean and chic way. I love the ease of the design, it’s functionality coupled with its minimalism. And, being a fan of pauca sed bona or ‘quality over quantity’, this bag practically screams my personal mantra — one luxurious bag to take me everywhere.

It may even have supplanted my Alexander McQueen Heroine as my favorite bag (undoubtedly because it can accommodate more photography gear)!
