Iron Fist Care Bears Tote Bag
Remember my Iron Fist Care Bear shoes post a while back? Well in the background of those photos I used the Clouds Of Caring oversized tote bag I'd won in an Instagram competition, but I thought I'd post it separately here, so you could see it in more detail.
Like I said in that original post, the bag is massive, far bigger than I expected. It's made from a nice weight canvas with the delightful Clouds Of Caring print all over. There's bears on clouds, ice cream sundaes, cupcakes, stars, rainbows and everything you'd expect from the cute and cuddly 80's bears.
It is fully lined in black logo Iron Fist fabric with an inside zipped pocket and two pouches at the opposite side. It closes with a full length zip along the top and there's two rainbow handles long enough to carry on your shoulder or in your hand. The outer base of the bag is the peachy coloured material you can see in the trim in the photos below. You don't get this with the bag, but my sister found this Care Bear charm for me to hang on the strap, which I thought finished it off nicely.
I wanted you to get an idea of the size (65x40x25cm), so needed to pop something else in the photo for comparison. Here it is with my phone.
Or with my Irregular Choice 'Forest Fantasy' bag. You could probably fit several of these into the Care Bear tote.
The whole Iron Fist Care Bear collection is still available at Purple Heels and remember you have until Christmas Eve to use my 10% off code shoegirl10 on all orders. They also have a fantastic selection of previous character heel releases from Irregular Choice and hard to find items such as the poodle poo mary-janes (I suspect the size 6 would be too big for me or I'd have snapped those up) and the beautiful Nut Cruncher bag that's been on my wishlist forever! Do you like the Care Bear collaboration, who else would you like to see Iron Fist team up with?
