With Christmas just around the corner and my love for luxurious pieces, I just couldn’t say no to this fantastic opportunity held by Smythson, to be in with the chance of winning one of two pieces from their Panama Collection. These include the beautiful red East West Panama Tote in cross-grain calf leather with navy fused lining, and the charcoal Panama Travel Wallet also in cross-grain leather, making the perfect staple pieces to have in your collection.
Portobello Diary | Grosvenor Shoulder Bag | Eliot Large Tote | Panama Large Slim Purse
I have listed the pieces I would love to see in my “Symthson Stocking” on Christmas Day above and you can’t go wrong with classic black, and I just love the quality and craftsmanship of each piece. Since receiving my Smythson Pocket Notebook I have not stopped using it! It will definitely last a lifetime and will always be a treasured piece in my stationery collection, each piece is really special and they make the perfect Christmas gift for someone special. Diaries are always a must have for me to keep track and take notes every day and I always like large, week to view layouts as this makes everything so much easier to see and keep track of important dates.
Every year for Christmas I receive a diary and calendar for the year ahead and find this helpful to get everything organized before the New Year, and this luxurious piece from the 2015 Portobello collection comes in gross-grain lambskin with a sleek design and lots of room to take notes and appointments. Bags are always a must and they make the best Christmas Presents, these bags are no exception with the simplicity of each design and eye catching fabrics. The Large Tote from the Eliot Collection comes with a generous mixture of leathers from soft nubuck to taurillon, making this a real eye catcher and something I would love to find under the tree this Christmas 😉
When it comes to nights out or short shopping trips I always like a nice small shoulder bag and trying to sway away from black I opted for this grey piece from the Grosvenor Collection with beautiful gold hardware and navy suede lining. This bag would be perfect for dinner parties or special occasions and easy to carry about either as a shoulder bag or a clutch by tucking the shoulder strap into the main compartment. This purse from the Panama Collection and would pair well with all bag styles and colours in the classic black finish, made from cross grain calf-leather this will definitely last the test of time and not wear out easily. I always find purses wear out quick and don’t last very long, I normally invest in leather purses/wallets as these last more than a year and definitely give better value for money. This purse is slim with lots of compartments to hold your cards, notes and coins with a gorgeous light gold finish and navy calf leather interior for durability.
