Designer VS High Street: Quirky, Novelty Bags

Here's what's hot right now! Quirky statement bags! Now, novelty bags has been around for years, it's not a new thing at all but because it has been all over the catwalk this year, everyone's going mad for them! Some may think it's tacky... and truth be told, I think that's the whole point, but I'd prefer to use the word 'kitsch' rather than tacky. But potato, potahto! Certainly, in a society where fashion takes itself far too seriously, it's these quirky accessories designs that takes the edge off a bit. I interned at an accessory company who created and sold designs like this and it was honestly the best place to work in the entire world! So I can only imagine how fun it must be to design these bags! I saw the Moschino fast food accessories in Selfridges a couple of weeks ago and obviously, it's something I can only admire through the glass display but this particular collection stuck out like a sore a good way! I spotted it while I was on the escalators and thought "ooh, I MUST check that out!"

Having spent an hour doing a bit of virtual window shopping, I found a bunch of high street version of fun, novelty bags. After having a crappy, miserable day, finding these quirky accessories on the shopping sites picked up my mood (I am a simple being!) so I thought I'd gather my favourite ones and put them in to a blogpost for you! Here are some budget-friendly options!

  1. I love the 80s hits tape bag! x

  2. Wow both lists are adorable but the prices in New Look or Asos are great !


  3. Obsessed with those New Look ones!!

  4. Love this! I'm totally digging the New Look and Accessorize ones! I think ModCloth do a super similar one of the Moschino Happy Meal box too! Love love love <3

  5. I'm really torn over these - they look cute, but I just can't ever imagine wearing (or paying that much for) them! I could possibly be swayed by the New Look donut bag though...

  6. The Newlook doughnut bag is the cutest thing ever, I love the chocolate bar one too x

  7. New Look are totally on the ball with their novelty clutches at the moment, they have some pretty cool fluffy cat clutches that I have to stroke every time I'm in! x

  8. Cool post! Really great to see that high street shops have some cool bags aswell. Not always a need to buy the designer's original!


  9. Now this is my kind of a blog post! I love novelty style anything! I am so loving that happy meal bag from moschino oh em gee i want it!

    fab post sarah!

  10. I have to agree with some that the fast-food novelty handbags are a little tacky (or kitsch!), but they do have a certain appeal. Personally, I like the high street versions better, especially the cassette hand bag!

  11. Those Charlotte Olympia bags are just perfect. I have the doughnut clutch from New Look - I use it a lot surprisingly but it's a pretty good bag! A perfect statement bag.

  12. Oh my gosh that unicorn bag from New Look is beyond amazing xx

  13. Love both from the designers and high streets. I think they have their own charm & uniqueness :D
    Btw, I really adore the clock handbag from Accessorize!


  14. Loving the novelty bags I think my favourites are the New Look ones :) x


  15. I think they're cute but probably not on me. If I picked one it would be the cassette one for nostalgia's sake. But I think I'll stick to my tote bags for now.
