IT'S TIME FOR A NEW BAG

Sunday, 17 November 2013


My beloved River Island bag finally succumbed to the pressure of over exhaustion and has now been disposed of - it was a sad moment. The tassels were tatty, the zip broken and the colour faded. I'm a devoted River Island girl when it comes to bags and I rarely find others I like elsewhere. I just think their bags are always classic, structured and well-made with a reasonable price tag of around £40. I usually have one favourite bag and use it to death which is why it was definitely time to invest in another.

This is where this little beauty comes in. New Look is usually the last shop I go to for handbags because I generally find them to be quite tacky, but I was very surprised when I saw this little plush one hanging up. It has that imitation leather look, cute gold detailing and is the perfect shape. I can fit a lot more in it than in my previous bag and because it's structured it means I can keep things organised. The only thing I would have liked is a zip - it does has a little magnetic clasp but I do worry about it not being the most secure. 

Want to know the best thing about it? It was a mere £24.99 - yep you heard it. Cheap as chips for a pretty bag. I also got £5 off as I signed up for a store card (to build my credit rating, not to shop uncontrollably, sigh) so I only ended up paying £19.99. I'm really impressed with this bag and when I get a glimpse of it I'm reminded of how lovely it is. Perfect size, perfect shape and perfect price.

What do you look for in a bag? Is this something you would buy?
