How kick ass.

In the heat of Monday morning madness I have purchased the flourescent yellow Cambridge Satchel bag and therefore depleted my funds for the week.

But looking at these images from Fashion Squad makes it all better as will the arrival of the UPS delivery man.

However, these 13" of leather brightness will surely make up for a week of jacket potato and beans for lunch from the canteen at work - at only £0.69 a pop it's frankly all I can afford.

Dare I say, it is bad money well spent as it strikes off another item from my SS/11 hitlist.

Only about another bazillion items to go but one at a time and after all "he who gathers money little by little makes it grow" - Proverbs 13:11.

Despite the insisent need to embrace the flouro trend that burst onto the catwalk last September right away, I have allowed the urge to build up and currently my flouro count is a cool three. That's one AA highlighter pink tee, one Christopher Kane lace biker jacket on order and one CS bag as above. And that will be my flouro collection done, seeing as I've worn outlandish colours for years before this trend swept across the fashion seas I know I'll be able to fashcyle these looks easily.

Admittedly flouro is a loud statement and must be worn with the confidence to match. Equally too much of each and things won't add up too well so if in doubt team with base colours like black, white and cream. And my personal favourite good old school uniform grey.

If you're looking for ways to incorporate the flash but wanna' watch the cash here are some easy ways to flouro it up.

1. Add some lip colour with YSL from £22 at Selfridges
2. Take advantage of free delivery, student discounts and sale slashes at ASOS, in this genius Louise Gray creation.
3. Get some hand action with this Topshop bracelet.
