It is amazing the amount of excuses I can come up with to justify getting a new bag. Here are just a few of them I came up with today.
1 ) I’ve worked hard, I deserve a treat
2 ) It matches with the shoes…I’ve yet to buy
3 ) Bags are always useful, and you can never have too many bags, even you have long run out of space to store them
4 ) I haven’t got a bag in that colour (if you don’t count the 5 bags I have in that colour!)
5 ) It’s a bargain, it’s a TSV, on easy pay! (I’m not so sure my bank manager will agree)
6 ) It’s big
7 ) But not too big
8 ) It’s small
9 ) But not too small
10 ) It’s Lulu Guinness, it will last…. (at that price it had better do!)
I came up with those in about 4 minutes. It took me longer to order the bag or should I be honest and say 2 bags!
The Navy bag is to go with the dress that I have yet to wear, but I wasn’t going to let a little thing like that stop me. But I shall also be attempting to justify the cost by teaming it with indigo jeans and a classic white shirt. The black is to go with my mini collection of LBDs. It can also be used for work, but as I like to keep high fashion and my work separate, I shall be saving this gem for special occasions.
The bag also comes in red and stone colourways. I very nearly convinced my self that I should get these too but commonsense kicked in. Sadly not quick enough for the other 2 but you can’t have everything. I’m not a big wearer of red, so I know the bag would just still in the bag of the wardrobe looking pretty. The stone colourway however was a little harder to discard as I like neutral palettes. In the end it was again the fact that this would languish in the back of the cupboard. Although it would go lovely with a pair of smart, plain black trousers and a white t-shirt. It would also co-ordinate with my stone coloured dress…. what was that order number again?
Oh dear! They really ought to think about banning QVC, it’s detrimental to my financial health!
