Carrie Me to London

Meet the city explorer’s new best friend…

Living just outside of London, I visit the city regularly.  Whether it’s for checking out the latest luxury releases, browsing Harrods & Selfridges, or simply catching up with friends, I often make the commute. Most importantly, it’s a great opportunity to use a favorite handbag!

My visits to London are not just for shopping on New Bond Street. The city has many great cafes, restaurants, and bars to explore. However, I always encounter the same problem – uncertainty about where I’ll be seated. Will it be a small table, a high bar, or a restaurant counter? There’s no way to know for sure. Most importantly, this begs the question, where will I put my precious bag?

As a person who loves luxury, I often find myself in uncomfortable situations when I have to place my bag on my lap during meals or drinks. This is never the ideal solution, and I want to take care of my bags and avoid any accidents.

The Carrie Bag Holder in Silver

If you’re looking for a solution to keep your handbag organized and off the ground, the Carrie bag holder is the ideal accessory.  The small but perfectly formed Carrie bag holder is not only beautifully designed but also incredibly sturdy. Plus, its collapsible design allows for easy storage in any handbag (Read more: Carrie Me to Paris).

On a recent trip to London, I loved using my Carrie bag holder, which matched my Chanel Classic Flap’s silver hardware. Although it appears small in size, it easily fits into my small Chanel Classic Flap bag, leaving plenty of space for my other daily essentials. Plus, it came with a protective pouch to keep it safe, and my bag protected.

I was able to confidently hang my Chanel Classic Flap on the Carrie bag holder during lunch at a restaurant counter, a wine bar, and on the table at my final meal of the day. This gave me peace of mind and allowed me to enjoy my day without worrying about my bag. Carefree and chic – what’s not to love?

Since getting Carrie, I no longer have to ask for an extra chair or awkwardly hold onto my bag while eating. By attaching my Carrie to the table, I can keep my bag close without having to wear it or put it on my lap. I also found that adjusting the strap length of my Chanel Classic Flap allowed me to tuck my bag away even more neatly in locations with a little less space. This is especially helpful for someone like me who is prone to be a little clumsy!

Unfortunately, handbag theft continues to be a big issue globally and is particularly on the rise in some areas of London. Therefore having your handbag within view at all times is more important than ever. Thankfully, with the Carrie, I am able to have my bag by my side in all locations. 

After trying it out in my home city, I am excited to bring a Carrie with me on my travels further afield. Convenient and chic – It’s certainly a great travel companion and a must-have for any luxe lover.
