I have been searching for a new handbag for a while now. I used to have an extortionate amount of handbags, but as my style has changed (a lot) I now find my old ones, well, awful. What was I thinking?? Have you ever had one of those fashion or beauty moments where you look back at yourself and think how could I ever have thought that would look good? Yeah, this is one of those moments. As a girl with a fairly tight budget, I knew it wouldn't be the time to invest properly in a designer bag that would last me years to come, so when I saw this beauty in Penneys (Primark to all the British out there!) I knew I had to buy it.
As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be the bag I would leave the shop with. Simplistic but still cute, I thought it might be one of those pieces in Penneys that are slightly more expensive (typical me, picking out the most expensive items!) but to my utter delight, it was a bargain. How much you ask? €11. Yep, you read that right! It was then that I knew I had to get it!
A beige suede upper portion, with a band of faux leather running around the bottom and underneath of the bag, it is right up my street. I don't like all black bags as I think they are a bit too dark for me, so this hint of black leather is perfect. There is no lining to the bag, and it closes with a magnetic button up at the top. Inside the bag is a tablet sleeve made from black faux leather that is attached with a little clip. As there is no zip on the bag (and I don't own a tablet) I use the little pouch for my purse and phone.
