A Teddy Blake handbag and a dress over jeans

Teddy Blake handbag

I’m a sucker for wearing dresses over jeans. There’s just something about the combination that I adore. Perhaps it’s just the practicality of it that I find so appealing, or perhaps it’s just because I’m obsessed with jeans. Speaking of being obsessed though, I have something new to obsess about! It’s this beautiful leather Teddy Blake handbag that I’m featuring for my Shades of Green post this week…

The folks at Teddy Blake New York were kind enough to gift me a bag of my choice from their vast collection, and I knew I would opt for a green one (after all, you know how obsessed with green I am, right?! lol). So, after spending ages perusing their site, I finally settled on the Ava Gold 11″ handbag in dark green. And because the lovely people at Teddy Blake knew I’m also obsessed (today’s word is…obsessed!) with wide straps, they also gifted me a strap to match so I chose the Croco Leather Wide Strap also in dark green.

When the Teddy Blake bag and strap arrived, I was absolutely delighted with them. They were packaged beautifully in their own fabric bags within a beautiful box. The quality is second to none. Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever had such a beautifully made bag, and if you know me, you’ll know that’s saying something because I’ve got a LOT of handbags! I’m over the moon by my choice and I know this handbag is going to get a lot of use. So be prepared to see it over and over on the blog!

I wanted my first outfit to make a statement, but not overshadow the Teddy Blake handbag, of course. So, like I mentioned above, I decided to style a dress over jeans. But this time, I unbuttoned the dress to make it look like a kimono / duster (not sure what else to call it). I wore a very simple all black ensemble beneath it, which I think worked rather well. A black Tezenis vest (tank top) and skinny black Levi’s, along with my black Calla pumps. This allowed the Stradivarius dress to pop alongside the Teddy Blake handbag. I was delighted with the final look, as was Michael who actually said, “WOW” when I walked into the room. I love it when that happens…it makes me feel pretty. He was also super impressed with the handbag, and he has very high standards (he married me, didn’t he?!).

    I was just writing a post to about that bag!! I was gifted one too. Aren’t they amazing! That dress is so gorgeous. If I remember correctly you had a hard time getting this one last year! I think I remembered that because I just love the dress. But please correct me if I’m wrong.

    The dress works really well over the black column of color. The bag looks nice, too.

    That dress is superb as a duster coat! It’s a stunning outfit. I also have a Teddy Blake bag in green, mine is the Kim Croco 9ins! Will be showing it off in my post next Weds. Thanks for linking xx

  5. It is a fab bag. I would have chosen it as well because I like a structured bag like this. Bad thing is, if Inland on there website, I cannot see antything until I enter my email address. Which I am nit prepared to give. Tough.
    As for your outfit, your husband said the right word.
    PS, if the bag is gifted, it is a sponsored post haha.

    Wow, I agree with Hubby, you look amazing. Love that dress as a duster too – what a fab look. The bag is bloody stunning too. I got gifted one as well and I’m really chuffed with it. You’re going to get so much use for it. I’ll look forward to seeing it again Suzy. Jacqui xx

    I adore this outfit, and the bag is beautiful! (I’ve been drooling over Laura’s – I Do DeClaire – and Ashley’s – Le Stylo Rouge – purple and yellow Teddy Blake purses as well.)


  12. Gah, Suzy, I love all of this! That dress is amazing! What gorgeous colors and the fun bold print. And you know I love a dress over pants, too! Now onto your new Teddy Blake bag! It is so pretty. Great choice! I also picked a dark green one that I will be sharing next week but there’s a little sneak peek of it in my recent summer style post. Have a lovely weekend, my friend!

    I love how you’ve worn the dress as a duster! The print is fabulous…as is your Teddy Blake bag! They sent one to me too but Parcelforce cocked up and sent it back to the US! Thanks for linking up!
