Infact, 2 change bags! One which was suitable for my husband to use also and a girly one. Little did I know that my husband wouldn't mind using a girly one and that other men seem quite comfortable using them too.
Thats £90 I could've spent elsewhere.
I had some pretty nice handbags, most that cost around £20. I find with those kinds of bags you get what you pay for. Lucky if it is a decent one but can't complain too much if its ruined within a couple of months.
I'd always longed to invest in a leather bag. I have a thing for large bags. Think Mary Poppins and you have my perfect bag.
I was contacted recently and asked to review Accessories Direct and was given a range of products to choose from to review.
I spotted 3 gorgeous bags and asked for one of them and was delighted when this beauty landed on my doorstep. [apologies for quality of photo, taken on my Blackberry]
It came well packaged in bubble wrap and a dust protector bag protecting it from possible damage whilst in transit!
described on the website:
Exclusive to Accessories Direct. A great classic and a sophisticated style that has a city chic appeal. This tan leather bag will look great worn with everything from workwear to casual denim. It has a Kate Benjamin designer gold tone metal logo on a leather tag, woven effect flap detail and a shoulder strap.I'm already the envy of friends and my mum with this gorgeous leather loveliness adorned on my arm! Even a MALE member of staff at Argos commented on how lovely the bag is.
Features a cream polka dot lining, two internal zip pockets and mobile phone pouch. Comes with a Kate Benjamin dust protector bag.
This bag is absolutely perfect for everything a mum needs to take out and about with her, especially a mum with a baby and a toddler. "Its too good for nappies" My mum said. Although I think its perfect to hold nappies and instead of feeling somewhat slummy sometimes this bag certainly helps pick me up and feel glamourous....
The London bag, from the Kate Benjamin range, is featured alongside other beautiful classic pieces on the websites Vintage Glamour section.
I used to be a jewellery person but since having children, who are very grabby and have ended the life of a couple of necklaces, jewellery comes quite low on my "lust list".
Still I do look and although I don't want jewellery, I still look forward to the day I can wear a pretty necklace again and add one to my Christmas list. And when that day comes I will certainly head to Accessories Direct to see what they have available.
Things I love from the Vintage Glamour section.
