In my Autumn shopping list: Two new Milli Millu handbags

When it comes to style, the saying is true: the early fashionista gets the best picks (sorry, I just couldn't bring myself to write about invertebrate creatures on this blog...). Each year, it's the same ritual: I read up on trends and collections in the magazines, and I usually do most of my new season shopping months in advance, which means trying on coats in the scorching heat and summer dresses over heavy tights in the winter. It may sound crazy, but it pays off, trust me: I am, after all, a shopping expert...

First stop, handbags. As you know I've had quite a crush for Milli Millu handbags, and the new Autumn-Winter 2013 collection is totally to die for. I'm not exaggerating. Between new styles, new colours and new textures it was impossible not to fall in love.

Up first, The Milan, an east-west top handle come shoulder bag, which I picked in camel and black because my winter wardrobe could really do with a camel handbag... Its structured look makes it a fabulous work to dinner bag, and I love the little gold baguettes on the sides, such a cool look! It also comes in a fabulous and very tempting burgundy leather with black calf-hair panels. Check it out here: The Milan by Milli Millu.

And then, The Bilbao. Slightly on the boxy side, but oh-so pretty with its double zipper and soft boucle wool panel, this is an irresistible piece! Admittedly I have other grey bags but this is such a unique design it was impossible to say no, especially if I consider that grey is the colour I wear the most in the Winter. Find it here: The Bilbao by Milli Millu

These babies are still being produced, so I won't have them in my walk-in closet for another few weeks, but I can barely wait!

The grey bag in particular is a stunner!
