I’ve written posts previously about looking for a new bag, something that leaves my hands free but also embraces my new found girly side. Practical but feminine – But not too feminine! I also needed a bag that can be used as an occasional change bag, one with pockets and spaces for different things and one that was hard wearing enough for day to day use.
ToxicFox recently got in contact and asked if I’d like to review something from their site – I always love hearing from new brands that I haven’t come across before and considering my love of gift websites I’m surprised I haven’t found them online before now! ToxicFox offer a whole host of gifts from sentimental and keepsakes to personalised and quirky. They have Mothers Day Gifts, Experience Days and so much more. There’s something for everyone and the thing for me was the Vintage Flower Saddle Bag. It looked perfect – The kind of bag I had been looking everywhere for and at a great price – RRP £24.99! It looked just like similar but hugely more expensive bags I had seen online and I couldn’t wait to receive it.
The bag arrived after a couple of days and I wasn’t disappointed. The bag is made from laminated canvas – plastic coated to make it easy to wipe clean and durable. The satchel style buckles are actually magnet fasteners – No faffing about with straps to get in and out of the bag! The canvas strap is a great length and adjustable so you can wear it across body, like i do, or over your shoulder.
Inside the Vintage Flower Saddle Bag there are two front pockets as well as a zipped main compartment. Inside the zipped compartment are two more pockets and a zipped pouch – Plus another zipped pouch on the back of the bag. There are also pockets on either end of the bag under the straps, great for easy access!
I’m really impressed with this bag, especially for the price. I’ve been using the Vintage Floral Saddle Bag almost every day since it arrived and find it roomy enough to use as a change bag when I need to or a handbag for me when I’m out without the children – Not very often! If you’re looking for a gift – A present for a friend or a Mother’s Day present then this bag may well be it – I love it!
Disclosure: I was sent the above bag for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.
