What's In My Handbag: Prada Saffiano Cuir - Posh, Broke, & Bored

The perfect work-play tote for the entrepreneur who never 'switches off' and carries her office in her handbag.

What's In My Prada Saffiano Cuir: My Office On-The-Go 

Not that I'm especially entrepreneur-ish (maybe I'm just being odd, but I think 'entrepreneur' is one of those descriptions the real McCoy need not call themselves but rather, leave others to decide if they are ie. 'If you have to say you're a lady, you're not a lady'...) although as far as my personal yardstick for industrious goes there isn't enough space on my ruler for running a 'vintage military fashion-designer fashion-antiques and other crazy crap-boutique' 7 days a week and keeping this blog afloat while somehow managing one holiday a month'. What can I say, I have a very short ruler: I've never imagined my resumé would measure beyond 'professional lush'. 
Yet here I am running a fashion start-up, actively blogging 2.5 posts a week, and finding the time to complete at least 5 crossword puzzles a day. Suffice to say the line between office and home has been sketched, rubbed out, redrawn, erased again and the pencil flung across the room propelled by my furious roar of "What is this primitive pre-Ctrl-Z tool?!". I'm done trying to draw the line between work and play: my office now goes everywhere with me in my handbag: my new, gorgeous, and oh-so-versatile Saffiano Cuir.

New arm candy by Prada, gifted to me from mummy dearest when she was in London this week for a  business and social call (she was in London for a fundraiser and nipped over to Marrakesh to support Farah Khan at Islamic Fashion Week. Can I have her life, please?). If purses had their own language like flowers, then a grey Saffiano Cuir must say either a) keep your paws off my Saffiano Lux or b) Congratulations on your virgin business venture, here's a vehicle for your new mobile office - it also makes a lovely leather pillow for when you're sleeping under your desk (j/k, what sleep?)

Either way, it fits my Macbook Air, a DSLR with an extra lens; nifty compartments for business cards, phone, lipstick (work essential), hand cream, Sharpies, and vape; plus my new Hermes Kelly wallet and Anya Hindmarch notebook. 
The blogger-turned-shopkeeper's essentials.

I refuse to do a flat-lay because I'm too tired: any flat-laying I do is me face-down on my bed like a fried egg.

So, tell me: which new handbag are you/will you be toting around this season? What's your 'work bag' style: strictly business, day-to-night, or don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation? Will you be shopping for a Saffiano Cuir? Which of these colours (above) are your favourite? Tell me (and show me!) x
