Are these now considered naffola?? Have my eye on either this or this. Am well prepared to be told that I probably don't have a clue but really love anything Orla Kiely!! Have just bought this for my holidays, can't wait for it to arrive. I really am a lost cause aren't I?

I love the shoulder bag! I'm also an Orla addict. I say go for it! Not head to toe mind!

Just wanted to check, I always seem to get it wrong, usually after I have spent a lot of money! Have always loved Orla Kiely but been a bit cautious as the prints are so bold that I've worried about them dating. Am now thinking sod it! Nope have no intention of wearing them together, they would clash anyway. Yes the shoulder bag is my favorite, I keep going back to drool over it! I should really get a life.

Now if you are talking about being everywhere and being boring that would be Cath Kidston! In town yesterday I saw at least 10 ladies all over 60 carrying one of her bags.

For me, Cath Kidston and Orla Kiely are much of a muchness - so everywhere they're boring.

The shoulder bag in particular has one of the prints that I think has been done to death - at least the other one is a bit less identifiable. (And the dress is pretty).

But everyone's tastes are different and if you love it just go for it.

Btw, being over 60 isn't a style crime in itself!
