Every girl has her weakness. Be it lipsticks, be it eyeshadows, be it shoes, or even dresses. (You get the gist...) She love's them, she buys more of them than is ever necessary. They are her BAE!

Back to the point, that item for me, would most definitely be handbags. After falling in love, tripping over and accidently falling into Mulberry and purchasing the Tillie Tote 2 and a half years ago, I declared that I would never buy another bag again. (May I point out that this was actually said in my post traumatic shock stage however, after realizing I'd spent an eye watering amount of money on a handbag)
I held true to that declaration. All the way up until a few days ago when I again, tripped and fell into Aldo this time and came away with the this little beauty. God, all this tripping over, I really need to be more careful don't I? ;)
Now, this may look slightly familiar to the eagle eyed, fashion conscious of you out there and I see where you're coming from. It does look very similar to a certain Celine luggage tote and I am totally OK with that. Same structure, same hardware, less than 2.5% of the price - it was £50 for those interested - That makes me a very happy girl.
Things to note about this bag. [READ: listen to me fan girl over a handbag for 10 minutes]
- The Colour. Ahh the colour. It is quite simply impossible to catch the exact colour of this bag in photographs. It is a bright, orange toned red... classic enough to look 'chic' but bright enough to make a statement without getting too neon. Paired with a monochrome outfit, love!
- The Structure. This bag is the handbag equivalent to Narnia. That is all! It doesn't look huge - which I like - but my god does this enable you to lug around your kitchen sink with you day in, day out. (Which I like even more) It's faux leather - i.e pleather, let's just say it how it is, shall we?! - with gold hardware. The zips down the side allow you to do them up and in essence, make the bag more compact. As I am a girly girl however, I shall be leaving them open to allow for the 20 different shades of pink lipstick that is obviously essential to carry around with you every day ;)
I will leave it there as I really could go on forever. In conclusion, if you love the Celine Luggage style handbags but are
a massive tight arse trying to be thrifty, then this is the one for you. It also comes in black - which looks stunning by the way - and a gorgeous tri-tone royal blue, white and black. So there really is something for everyone!
So, all that's left to do now is get the information out of you. What is your fashion or beauty weakness? What can you not walk pass without checking out/unnecessarily purchasing more of? I would love to hear your thoughts!
As always, thanks so much for reading!
