Orla Kiely Pre-Fall 2017 Mainline: Applique Flower Leather

The Applique Flower Leather bags and accessories are my favorites from the Pre-Fall 2017 line. I love all the colorways, and the tortoiseshell handles and chain detailing on the bags are a nice touch.

Bethan Bag in Cocoa and Multi

Mini Poppy Bag in Cocoa and Multi

Medium Zip Wallet in Cocoa and Multi

Card Holder in Nutmeg, Orange, and Pink
I think these card holders are so cute, but I'm just not sure how secure they'd be. I'd worry that my cards would fall out as the leather stretches out over time. Does anyone have any experience with these card holders? I love the design, but just wish there was some kind of snap or zipper closure to keep the cards in place.

Square Zip Wallet in Black, Orange, and Pink

Key Fob in Black, Orange, and Pink

Key Ring in Nutmeg, Orange, and Pink
I absolutely love these key rings - I was lucky enough to be able to collect all three colorways from the SS17 collection, so I certainly don't need anymore, but they are just so cute and make great bag charms.

Orla Kiely Pre-Fall 2017 Mainline: Punched Stem Leather in Black, Mustard, and Nutmeg

Bucket bags seem to be all the rage this season, and I'm slowly warming up to the trend. I do really like the Nutmeg version of this bag, but I really don't prefer the pocket on the back.

It's not exactly a deal breaker, but I do wish it weren't there. I guess if anything, it's not really visible when you're wearing the bag anyway, and it can be quite useful to store items you need easy access to.


What's cool about these Double Poppy Bags is the extra pouch that's included - it can be attached to the back, but also double as a pouch to be used in other bags.


 This purse also has the extra pocket on the back, which again I don't really care much for, but I can still see uses for it, such as holding receipts.

Orla Kiely Pre-Fall 2017 Mainline: Textured Leather in Black and Nutmeg

With Orla Kiely's SS17 line now 40% off, it's time to look ahead to the Pre-Fall 2017 collection. First up is the Textured Leather line, which is now available this season in the colorways Black and Nutmeg (the collection is quite small this time, however, with just two bag styles available and no accessories). My favorite part of this style is the OK turncock closure!

Also check out past season Textured Leather colorways Slate and Lemon, Denim and Nude (my all-time favorite!), Cocoa and Lipstick, and Berry and Tan.
