Bibbity Bobbity Boo-tiful! Helen Rochfort’s Cinderella Handbag

Helen Rochford Cinderella Frame Handbag Bag 1

It recently occurred to us here at Maison Mouse that the one thing Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother forgot to give her was a handbag. OK, so once you factor in the new dress, gloves, shoes, hair, make-up and coach, it would have seemed ungrateful to mention the lack of bag, but since we can’t go anywhere without at least a small purse to decant all our crap into, we really don’t know how Cindy managed all night at the ball without one.

Despite Cinderella’s own lack of bag, we were completely thrilled to find her on ours when we were given this Helen Rochfort bag as a gift last Christmas. We hadn’t heard of Helen Rochfort before but we were captured by her design, which is a metal frame box bag with a dreamy hand-printed Cinderella silhouette on the front and the story of Cinderella printed on the back!

Designed by UK-based Helen Rochfort, who set up shop in 2007, each bag is a limited edition (only 200 of the Cinderella ones have been created) and comes with a certificate of authenticity, meaning this isn’t just a fabulous accessory but also a future collectible!

The bag comes in silver and is studded with diamante, while the clasp is super sparkly!

The interior of the bag is a bright silky pink with multiple pockets, making it perfect for a ball. As the hilarious description on the Helen’s website says, it’s “Big enough for your powder, lippy, mobile, purse and a small unicorn!” As you can see, ours also fits a tiara.

All the frame bags retail at £65 and it turns out that Helen Rochfort has actually created a whole collection of fairytale bags. As well as the Cinderella design you can pick up a bag with Alice in Wonderland (below), Sleeping Beauty and Red Riding Hood. Check them out on Helen’s fabulously mad website www.helenrochfort.com.
