So I just thought I would start off letting you know that the Cognitive Behavior Therapy is going well. I had my first in person appointment yesterday at Newcastle Talking Therapies and yes it is hard seeing what you do to yourself and the cycles you get caught up in, but I am really starting to believe that knowing is the way to break the pattern. I love life, but I know that there is s much more I could get out of it if I sorted my issues with anxiety, so I'm ready for the journey...nervous but ready.

So anyway back to the whole fashion thing. I have noticed that a new trend appears to be emerging - the knuckleduster clutch, made famous by Alexander McQueen and replicated extensively, has seemingly evolved into the gorgeous 'Glove Clutch'. Simply put instead of a handle or wrist strap, you grip onto your clutch via a fingerless glove that is attached. Amazing.

'How I Met Your Mother' (God awful show, I know) star Cobie Smulders recently rocked the £2,200 Perrin Paris version an that had me lusting after one of my own.

A few years ago Alexander McQueen released a range of glove clutches that were to die for and I am still waiting for copies to hit the high street, so if anyone has seen any fab glove clutches anywhere please let me know.

I had been eying the fabulous leather glove bag from Maison Martin Margiela for H&M, but slept in on the day of release and they were sold out by the time I fell out of bed. So my search continues.

So has anyone bought any enviable bags recently...I need to live vicariously through others since I am so poor :)

  1. Yay glad the therapy is going well so far, that's brilliant! Ahh those McQueen bags are so gorgeous aren't they, I don't know why there's not been a high street version either! xxx

  2. What a unique idea, I never would have imagined that. Good luck with everything. I have serious issues with anxiety myself. trying to get through it myself as it is hugely impacting my life. i always understand.

  3. Wowza, I've never seen these before but agree the McQueen versions are amazing! I think it needs to be carefully done but can look awesome.

    The Style Rawr!
