Girl Lust

I don't normally do handbags in a big way, more find one that suits then use it everyday. However it seems that when I succumb and fall in lust, I do it HARD.  I realise you long term readers will remind me about this bag and my proclamations of lust for it, and yes as much I do still like her, she is just tooooo high maintenance, so can't be used every day.

For the last few years I've been using my Jaqui Brown bag (so called because Jaqui had the same one the first series of her show) but the zip has broken, the fauxleather is peeling, and it is just very very tired. Over the last few weeks I have been going through the great handbag drama. There have been two false positives, one handed on to the child and one currently on Trademe, until eventually I had to give in to the piece of gorgeousness that has been taunting me for weeks.

It was obviously meant to be, as when I finally caved and went to purchase I was pleased to find further discount on the already sale price.

Here she is:

Surprise, surprise, it's red. Funny that. Every little detail about it is just perfect, the way the handles are connected,

The detailing on the front corners,

Then just to finish off the cute polka dot lining and silky tassel to open the internal zip.

Of course I now need a pair of shoes to match.

We're practically handbag twins! As you know I had a version of the first one. And I have one of these ! Mine is more bowling bag, with a big white buckle on the side. Very Mary Quant, I love it.

OMG I almost bought the one with the buckle, but they only had it in black, and the slutty red one was yelling at me. It is very Quant, totally.

This is a bowling bag shape as well, lashings of room inside for the many phones and multiple choices of sunglasses. It's making me very happy.

For someone who doesn't "normally do handbags" you are remarkably consistent (now I've read the back story). I do particularly like the stylish photo shoot on the electric blue chair and the detail behind the close-ups. What else have you been buying that is worthy of a similar feature?

Do dull work shoes count?

If the bloody trader ever posts them to me.

Undergarments? But as I don't air dirty laundry here, I guess I'm not gonna air clean stuff either.

Pink designer deliciousness, but that needs to be shown while being worn......TBC
