I took a little trip to my hometown of Fareham the other month for a bit of R&R. It was a lovely week of catching up with family and friends, and of course – drinking. Now you guys know I love a theme, right? How perfect was it that the town’s local pub just so happened to match the Vendula London Crown design?
After the success of The George (featured in this and this post) we needed a new pub on the Vendula Block. And thus The Crown opened, inviting us into its cosy little boozer with chintz armchairs and roaring fire!
When I saw the design in it’s early days, the roof was different, and I have to say I thought the whole bag was ugly. Then once the roof had been changed to this amazing faux snakeskin (Remember, all Vendula products are animal-friendly!) and it took on a whole new light for me. It looks traditional and a bit more muted than some of our other Shop Front designs, whilst keeping the Vendula Charm!
Because of the tones in this bag, I wanted to create a dark outfit to make the bag stand out – and boy does it! Against a black background the features are shown so well, my favourite details include a sleeping bulldog outside and a portrait of good ‘ol Liz!
I so love this outfit, I was mainly using it to show off my amazing new shoes from ASOS (that I can’t walk in but shhh), but the little gold details worked so well. Makes it so much easier to deal with a pub-full of people laughing at you when you look this good, too!
Now the Shop Front ranges come with four bag and four purse styles. The style I’m wearing is the Box Bag, but my sister in law also wanted in on The Crown action!
Therefore we have a guest showing off her Pouch Bag; My sister in law Emily! Proof that no matter the size, The Crown range looks amazing!
Most noteworthy; please remember if you ARE drinking irresponsibly, I’m not to blame. I’m not to blame if I drink irresponsibly, come to think of it!
