The Red Tia Bag...

If you're following Mission;Style on Instagram, WIWT, TIW..(Yep, I upload to these sites most days...), you may have spotted a new addition to my bag collection..

It's my pleasure to introduce you to Tia!

Tia is my first 'gift'. It can be (Lord, may this continue) that bloggers are 'gifted' items to blog about so first off, I just want to be crystal clear that 1) This is a 'gift' and 2) I would only feature 'gifts' if I'd spend my own money on them!

There's no doubt I'd part with my hard earned cash for this beautiful bag! 

A HUGE thank you to the very thoughtful Gemma who's an independent stylist at Stella & Dot who sent me Tia!! Gemma had read my recent post where I'd borrowed Andrea's red bag (and said I was on the hunt for one now) and kindly sent me Tia... The hunt is most definitely over, I was beyond made up to have this arrive 1 day after it launched this week, it's been used everyday since..;

Tia has plenty of room for the iPad mini
Tia's gorgeous lining and detachable shoulder strap...

The shoulder/crossbody strap is adjustable and removable and the zip around the bottom of the bag opens out to widen the bag too - PERFECT!

I'd come across Stella & Dot before but after going through the Look Book Gemma sent with Tia, I have more pages folded over than not, I feel a major accessories spree coming on!!

Here's my top 5 (it was going to be 3 but I couldn't narrow it down, my inner magpie has taken over) faves from the collection;

Ever After Pendant - Buy here.

Initial charms and fine gold necklace - Buy here and here.
There's so much choice with the charms, you can build them up and layer too!

Friendship Ties - These are stunning, again layer up the arm or wear on their own. If you buy one of these ones above 100% of the net proceeds go to empowering disadvantaged girls aged between 8-13!! (Action For Children 'Girls on Side programme). Spend and do good all at once - Buy here.

Serenity Stone Cuff - Wear over sleeves in the winter and on skin in the summer...Yes please! Buy here.

Mae Necklace - It's no secret how much I obsess over a statement necklace...this one matches Tia...Buy here (Santa, FYI - I predict a sell out..Just saying..)

I will most definitely be pointing Santa in the direction of Stella & Dot this year!

What do you think, are you gonna' get Tia in your life or, something from the top 5?

What are your favourite pieces on Stella & Dot?

Lots of Love,
