Over the past few years, I’ve purchased a few designer bags which I now confess, I love more than some (read: most) of my family members. I’m one of those people that prefers possessions over experiences (I’ve tried to shift it the other way, but it's not happening - I just love stuff and the warmth of my own bed), and the one thing that trumps a bougie bag or sassy shoe? FOOD.
Imagine my delight, then, when I discovered that Magnum had teamed up with Jeremy Scott at Moschino to produce a limited edition line of statement tote bags to celebrate the launch of the Magnum Double flavours, Raspberry and Coconut. There are seven bags in total, each featuring a different animal with a different attitude, set against a vividly bright background and dressed head to tail in signature Moschino styles.
These bags are the definition of bougie, but more than that, they’re actually a practical way of working a wearable, designer piece into your wardrobe. Each bag is waterproof and holds enough room for you to slip in your laptop, purse, and each of the fourteen different chargers that keeps your day ticking over. The strap is fairly thick which means that you’re not going to suffer from ‘busy-girl’s-shoulder’ after ten minutes of leaving your house, and for the simpler sisters like me, the pop of colour (don’t mind me, just throwing up in my mouth at the use of that phrase) adds a little something something to your everyday uniform.
Truth is, whilst I love my bags more than a freshly baked French baguette oozing with garlic butter (can you sense that love for food coming through?), a Gucci cross-body is often not the most practical accompaniment when I’m lugging around my MacBook, my camera and a spare pair of shoes. Most days, you’ll find me reaching for a reliable tote, either in canvas form or something slightly more jazzy like the Magnum x Moschino Leopard number I’m wearing here. As much as I’d love to say that I can fit my life into a YSL Blogger Bag, I’m always working from a coffee shop or shooting on the go, so I need something that’s both functional and ~ fashurn ~.
But anyway, who wants to hear about me, right? What you want to know is how you can get your paws on one of these Magnum x Moschino tote bags. You can nab each of the seven styles (minus the pink edition, which has now sold out!) directly from the Moschino website here. The bags retail at £212 each, but hold your horses, because I have some exceptionally good news for you…
Magnum x Moschino have kindly gifted me three extra bags to giveaway, so one of these designer pieces could be yours. All you have to do follow myself (@chloeplumstead), Magnum (@Magnum) and Moschino (@Moschino) on Instagram, and comment below this blog post letting me know your favourite flavour of Magnum (FYI - mine is Double Raspberry, and I’ve made myself hungry by writing this blog post so I’ll be grabbing one from the shop ASAP).
I can't wait to send these babies out, so good luck and happy entering!
