As far as handbags go, I’ve always been super practical. My collection of bags is simple, classic and functional – whether it’s a backpack or a formal one, sling bag or travel luggage. I always focus on quality with style – which is my signature style guide for accessories. This is exactly why Marla London is such a gorgeous fit for my handbag closet. I love how chic, stylish and functional the brand is, along with being affordable. This winning combination makes it one of my favorite brands and clearly, that of other Dubai bloggers as well.
I recently shot a fun campaign for Marla London, with photographer and blogger Mahryska, and other lovely style bloggers from Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. We were asked to pick our favourite from the fabulous Spring Summer 2015 collection and trust me that was a challenge because I loved them ALL!
I finally picked the gorgeous Soraya handbag in black – a mid-sized, formal bag for my meetings and work. What I liked most about this bag is that its perfect for the office without being too bulky. The stylish shape and size of the bag made it climb to the top of my list of favorites from the new collection. The bag is also available in dark tan, nude and ivory.
I love how all bags at Mara London have a name and a distinct personality to the bag. I think that’s important because after all, what you wear are extensions of your own personality. For me, the ‘Soraya’ girl is practical, self-assured and strong. She’s stylish but would never trade anything for functionality. What type of Marla London personality are you?
