Still, there are bright things to come out of these dull times. For one there is the water proof bag. Put some jolly in your life with a bright, plastic bag to house your handbag that may not be waterproof, any wet clothes and perishable items.
They are cheap which is a bonus and they are plastic which means that if it suddenly stops raining and turns to sun, which this London weather does a lot you can use it as a seat cover outside and it will come to no harm.
Over at Fashion Stylist plastic waterproof bags have been being used to the extreme so you know you are in good company (picture above).
So where can you pick them up?
For starters I would go to your local corner shop either near home or work – here they will do doubt have a brilliant gaudy display (the brighter the better) for cheap.
For £21.99 you can get a Harrods plastic shopper though this is probably a little excessive on the wallet.
Topshop, that mecca for anything anyone might need in the fashion and accessories departments has some great options.
This bubble wrap shiny number for £18.00.
Or this floral options for £16.00
Or if you want a longer lasting option that can be converted into a beach bag when the weather clear up then these jelly options (from a range of colours) at River Island would be great, £35.00
