A Sophie Hulme Splurge

Friday, 23 May 2014

I don't know what happened.  Okay that's a lie, I know exactly what happened. This, as evident in the above picture happened.  How, is another matter entirely.  I don't know what to say, I had a gift card, I had loyalty points to redeem, I lost the run of myself, I was having a bad day and instead of taking to my bed (via the fridge) I went shopping...and skipped home with a new handbag.  

Not just any handbag, the Sophie Hulme Zip Top Bowling Bag to be exact and isn't she a beauty. Angels may had sung.  Or maybe that was me squealing.  I've had my eye on this for awhile. Honestly, just ask the Sales Associates in BT2, where I often went just to look at it admiringly... It may be called a bowling bag but I won't be taking this to a bowling alley anytime soon. Actually, I didn't take it anywhere for the first few days.  Does anyone else do that, get something new and then are too afraid to use it?  No, just me?  Moving on...

I adore this bag.  This also comes with a cute charm and a long strap.  I love the contract of the black against the gold hardware and its spacious enough for me to have the option of lugging around the kitchen sink!  I ahem needed a more structured bag as I could never find anything in my old one. That's my justification and I'm sticking to it!  Now I'm off to have beans on toast for lunch, for the next...month.

    1. I think I could justify almost any purchase! I don't know whether I should be proud or ashamed...

  3. Oh wow! I am so so so so in love with your handbag. It's so beautiful and looks like it would last you ages too (justifying why I need it haha) xx
