I was quite possibly the most excited today than I’ve been in ages, about something that’s plastic and ever so slightly Granny chic. Oh yes, the 80/90’s jelly cage bag is back! When I caught a glimpse of the pink and blue versions of the throw back classic on New Looks website this morning, I let out a small ‘yip’ of excitement!
I never thought that having other people see what was in your handbag could be fashionable but I’m really loving these slightly kitsch bags of beauty; especially as they remind me of the two, yes two, I had as a child!
I am proud to say I had one very similar to the Coolway cage bags, in white and I also had a mint green cross body bag, with a twisting close lock. I remember it clearly. Nearly all my friends growing up in the 80’s and 90’s had jelly shoes but I was the only one with a jelly bag. I was so cool!
So, I think I’ll be hot footing it to down New Look this Spring/Summer for one of these; the only tough decision I’ll have is which colour to pick! Oh and worrying about what I carry in my handbag!
