Bonmarché Review

When I was invited to review Bonmarché I wondered what I could choose, the last time I was in Bonmarché it was with my Mum before I had kids, so I was a little unsure as to what I would actually review for them. I mean I remember lots of clothes Mum liked which wasn't exactly what I was after. And let's be honest they advertise themselves as a shop for mature women and I'm still a young bit thing right? Well given that I'm pushing (cough) 40 I suppose it's ok to have a little look...

I was however pleasantly surprised when I browsed their website and found 2 dresses and a bag that I loved. Sadly the dresses were obviously very popular and my size wasn't in stock so I chose this lovely scarf detail bag.

What We Say

I loved the colour of the bag and I think the scarf detail is lovely. I first thought the bag was on the small side but actually it was big enough for A4 papers, my ipad and tonnes of room for all the bits and bobs that go into my handbag.


It's the perfect size for working away from home for me, I can shove everything I need and then I'm ready to work anywhere. The straps are the right length to wear as a shoulder bag or as a hand bag.

It's well made and has a lovely contrasting lining and at £20 is a real bargain, I was so impressed with it I've bought another as a gift. Next I have my eye on this super dooper cute swimsuit.
