I’m always on the lookout for casual hobo-style bags that I can slam around and ditch on the floor and which will only look better and better rather than worse and worse. My new object of desire is the Coach Kristin tote, which has been causing a lot of buzz in the blogosphere. It looks like the perfect every-day bag for winter if you choose the brown or black version, and I believe there’s also an interesting dark blue colour available which could take you through into Spring!
Hester is originally from the incredibly glamorous city of Bristol, in England. Determined to escape her West-Country roots (though a love of good scrumpy should never be lost) she packed off for uni at Oxford to waste several years on a degree in Philosophy and never looked back… Following a stint in Switzerland eating too much fondue and meeting her future husband, they jumped at the chance to follow their dream of heading to Asia, and landed in Hong Kong in 2008. Along with partners-in-crime and fellow Tai-Tais, Maura Thompson and Natalie Firestone, she founded Sassy in 2009 and then Sassy Mama in 2011 after the birth of her daughter Elodie. Number 2 daughter Margot arrived in August 2012 and then two months later it was off to her new home in Singapore with tinies in tow. Hester is discovering the Lion City one shophouse at a time with a love for seeking out Singapore’s hidden secrets!
