A few months ago when I saw Nicki from My shining armour show the new Hero bags she was bringing out for the first time on Instastories I remember being so impressed with them because unusually for me I loved the look of all of them! If you aren’t aware there are four pouch style bags with detachable crossbody straps. I was delighted when Nicki asked me to take a few pictures with them to give people a better idea of how they look worn, in terms of size , strap length and also worn with the strap or as a clutch. For reference I’m 5’7 so that might be something to keep in mind. I styled them all in this post but to be honest there was a million ways I could have worn each of them so settling on one outfit was actually a challenge. when I got the bags I was further impressed by their quality and how great they look in person. The first lot of pictures are of the white mock croc with pink splash. This would be fab dressed up at night but it looks great worn casually for everyday too so I wanted to style it that way! It comes with a gold chain strap that can comfortably be worn crossbody. You’ll see it on another bag further on in the post (On another note I love this grey H&M jumper and have it in another colour already!) Links to everything above!
The second bag is the black alligator which could possibly be my favourite of them all. Again it comes with a gold chain strap and can be worn as a shoulder strap or crossbody for everyday, but for me it is the perfect black clutch that you would have forever. It looks expensive and quality and I can see myself wearing it literally every time I go out (which admittedly isn’t very often these days!) I think my other black clutch bags will be relegated to wardrobe purgatory from now on.
I’m also wearing my green H&M sparkly disco trousers! These sold out pretty much straight away online but you might have better luck in store. I’ve heard Dame Street had some in stock!
This bag goes with everything! I chose to wear it with this jumper because it’s so Autumnal looking and I love the black and white against the rust but there isn’t much in my wardrobe I couldn’t have put it with instead. Again because of the versatile, simple shape and detachable strap this is perfect for day and night. (This is the same strap that comes with the Pink Splash and the Black Alligator aswell)
Excuse the drowned rat look in these pics, its actually raining here but I liked the look of these houses so it had to be done. A martyr for the cause !:)) The final Hero bag is the amazing leopard print with detachable leather strap. If you don’t own a leopard print bag I’d highly recommend trying one out. They go with everything (leopard is a neutral and all that) but it isn’t easy to get a high quality leopard bag with a nice print for a reasonable price. I find this with leopard print boots too. This one is fab on all counts. Again it doubles up as an evening bag (really similar to the gorgeous Clare V clutch I’ve obsessed over for years) so you really get your moneys worth!
Thank you if you’ve gotten to the end of this post ! I’d love to hear which of the four is your favourite ?
