The Perfect Shopper + WIW

Initially London Covent Garden Market Basket

Morning ladies before I share my outfit for the day I wanted to show you my new gorgeous personalised shopping basket I've been sent by Initially London.  You may recall that I was previously sent their Ibiza Clutch, which I first shared with you on the blog here & have used so much this summer.  I can't tell you the amount of people who have asked me where it's from & I've absolutely loved using it.  So when I was asked if I'd like to choose another piece from their collection I was delighted.

One of the things I love most about the brand, apart from the fact that they're products aren't silly prices, is that instead of painting on your initials these are actually embroidered making them really long lasting & hard wearing.  Plus you have a large choice of colours together with different fonts so the chances of seeing someone with exactly the same customised bag is extremely small.  They even offer some other great pieces from personalised wash bags to napkins to dressing gowns, you can see their full range here.

As you can see from the above image I've opted for a personalised shopping basket.  After much deliberation I chose to have my initials embroidered in a dark brown to match the leather of the handles as I wanted the basket to have more of an Autumn feel, as I'm planning on using my shopper basket throughout the year, as I feel wicker baskets are so much more stylish & nicer to use than a canvas shopper. 

As with my clutch the quality is spot on & so much cheaper than any of the baskets I saw whilst on holiday & that was just plain ones, nothing as stylish as this.  Plus with an approximate size of 30cm tall by 45cm wide at the top of the basket it's a great size for fitting everything in.

Back to today & I'm matching the tassels on my new basket to the tassels on my sandals & bringing out the blue of the basket tassels with my shirt & wrist band.
