What's in my KOKO Couture bag: Christmas Party Edition.

30 November 2016 Manchester, UK

Everyone knows the countdown to Christmas gets earlier and earlier each year. And as the countdown commences, the festive parties start. Last week I was invited to my first party of the season. The spiced mojitos, christmas music and nibbles were in full flow.

When I was contacted by Manchester based brand Koko Couture for a collaboration post, I thought what better than combine a post about a bag I adore, which was the perfect addition to my (rather dull) christmas party outfit with my first 'What's in my bag' post.

If you know me well, you'd know I'm the queen of all black. Even though christmas is meant to sparkly and colourful, my outfit choices are still predominantly black. For the party, I donned a strappy, black midi dress from Miss Selfridge which was bought about 2 years ago. BUT on this occasion it didn't matter, as the Alison Chain Detailed Glitter Clutch in Silver by Koko Couture brought all the sparkle and sass a girl could ask for. The detail on the metallic chain of the bag is a favourite feature of mine. The bag is priced at just £20.

In my bag that evening I had the usual stuff; phone, keys, and ID (unfortunately, they didn't make the cut when editing my pictures).

Usually, I can never find a clutch bag to fit my purse, which at the moment is the Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Leather Continental Wristlet in Cherry. But my lovely Alison Chain Detail Clutch was big enough to fit my purse. So Thank You Koko Couture for making a clutch bag that gets full marks on the practicality side.

To keep may face looking adequate throughout the night, I had my trusty MAC Studio Fix Powder in NW45, MAC lipstick in the shade Diva, a handy NYX matte Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in LSCL12 - Vintage and a Gucci perfume sample I got as a gift. For a clutch bag, I'm surprised all my stuff could fit in it and it not look bulky.
