There’s nothing more I love than to find new brands with new products, I discovered Amelia Allen UK on Instagram and I fell in love with her pouches from the start.
I was instantly attracted to the red – I’m currently gathering a large collection of red accessories – and I felt this leather pouch would be a versatile item to own. So far I’ve only used it as a clutch, but it has a potential to be an inner pouch for my TopShop red tote bag or I can see myself using it as a travel wallet when I fly; it’s a gorgeous little number to keep your passport, essential cards and your currency in.
The biggest attraction for me though was how I could put my name on it! I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like we all own everything and nothing is that personal – well this is now just for ME. As you can see I’ve opted for Lizzi and I love that when I place it on the table, people who glance at it will know, it’s mine.
Made from 100% smooth leather, I was delighted to find it had a lovely suede lining, I didn’t read this properly before ordering and have been pleasantly surprised with it – it’s so soft inside to touch, making grabbing for your lippy or phone a pleasant touch. It also has a zip lock compartment which is perfect to keep safe something like a door key and then cleverly two card slot holders so you don’t necessary have to add a purse.
With the red, you get gold hardware so depending on what colour option you pick; blush, black or pewter to name a few I think determines this.
I was a little concerned that the pouch may be too small, and I did measure up before buying the dimensions are H16 x W 24cm, and the size is perfectly fine. I wouldn’t recommend to overfill it, as it doesn’t look right if you do, keep it slimline (which isn’t a bad thing – I think we all carry a little too much!).
I love this product, it’s a 10/10 from me and definitely worth the £40 I spent. Hopefully this photo, on a recent night out, gives you the proportion of the pouch used as a clutch.
