Strawberry Accessorize Bag Review

So, last week I was given the sweetest little day bag for my birthday, and I thought you guys might like a closer look as it really is adorable.

My parents allowed me to choose a bag, so I asked for a particular cross-body bag from Accessorize which had been on my wish list for a few months.


I asked for and was given this strawberry shaped beauty! 

When I first saw it, I knew I had to have it because it looked so quirky, and very 'me'. I knew it would be the perfect summer day bag for wearing with sun dresses, and just about everything else.

 I associate strawberries with summer as we went strawberry picking each summer when I was little, and they're such an iconic summer fruit here in England. They're almost as English as Fish 'n' Chips, and as a nation we'll find any excuse to pick up a punnet. Not that we ever need one!

So, to me, this is the perfect summer bag.


It's shaped just like a strawberry, with seams to create a more 3-D shape, and even has a 'stem' on the top! The strawberry 'seeds' are made up of little golden studs, and the faux leather is as soft as butter.  





The inside is lined, and has a small inner pocket. There's enough room for the essentials like a purse, phone, keys, and lip balm, but will hold a little more as the shape of the bag is relaxed with room to expand a little. It seals shut by magnetic popper.


It has an adjustable faux-leather and chain strap which can be worn across the body or on the shoulder. It's a decent length, but I would have preferred it to be a little longer. But that's just me.


The bag was reasonably priced at £25, although a couple of days after it was bought it went on sale for half price on Accessorize's website. (But don't tell my Mum that!). It doesn't appear to be online any more, which I fully understand as it's so cute, but it's definitely worth checking in store to find one if you've fallen in love with it like I have. I guarantee it would be purchase you wouldn't regret!

I'm in love with mine!

If strawberry shaped bags aren't your thing, I'm sure they'll be something you'll love in Accessorize's collections, which you can see here.

Would you use a bag shaped like a strawberry or some other type of fruit? What do you think of novelty bags?

  2. I was reminded of the fact I have a couple of "novelty" shaped bags, cats mostly and heart shaped ones, by your recent post on the dog shaped one. This strawberry is very cute!
