Whilst most ladies will decide which handbag to wear with their outfit, being pen addicts we like the idea of choosing a handbag to match the pen. So we have decided to put together some stylish combinations.
"Having things written is good for putting things/ideas into perspective. Keeping a pen and notebook in your handbag is always a good idea. The attention to little details always count and the unique idea of matching your pen and notebook to your favourite handbag definitely gives a few extra chic points." Bankè A, A Style Diary

"I like to think of my stationery as I do my handbags and shoes - an investment that won't go out of style. For me it has to be something classic that can be matched with any item.

"We all have our handbag essentials; lipstick, mints, tissues, a pen. Yes that’s right, a pen. In this digital age, many of us have lost the art of traditional handwriting. For me carrying a pen in my handbag is so important for writing a note or jotting down that important meeting in my diary.I absolutely love the Waterman Hemisphere fountain pen from Pen Heaven, writing in ink allows me to express my creativity and the elegance of the sleek gold plated fountain pen goes perfectly with my handbag for work and my clutch bag for when I’m going out. The Waterman Hemisphere fountain pen is the fashion accessory that I am always happy to be seen with!"
