The bag that’s taking over Instagram right now – a small humble string bucket bag. With a less than humble price tag. At £310 or more this little beauty requires investment. There’s no doubt (in my mind) its gorgeous, the detail, the quality, the concept. But when your money is otherwise engaged… thank goodness for the Great British Highstreet. And helloooo there Mango.
I saw this online and of course the likeness made me flirt with ‘add to bag’ button… I was unsure for a few days… not really being a fan of such ‘inspired by’ designs. But then I caved. And when it arrived I knew I had made the right decision. Its a beauty. Vivienne instantly declared it hers. I have since reclaimed it and removed the plastic food.
It may only be February and I don’t want to send the Summer rush shivers up your spine but don’t forget – the good buys are gone long before Summer arrives. If you like it – buy it and start a little Spring Summer collection box ready to start wearing when the warmer weather arrives.
Meanwhile I’ll be taking this beauty out tomorrow. My mother always did tell me – if you always save for best (or Summer in this case) you’ll never wear it Ashley.
