If, like me, Christmas time brings you a few extra social occasions in an other words quiet life, then, like me, you like to push the boat out and make an effort! This Christmas, I bought a cute dress that brought me loads of places and I loved it. I borrowed a pair of vintage Balenciaga shoes (divine!) from my sister, spent some time on my hair and make-up and was good to go……. almost. Oh Dear! Every time, I checked my reflection on the way out, my large daytime hold all bag, which I love dearly all other times, just didn’t sparkle! So I’m thinking that this January when I have a little Christmas money given with love, to be spent on me (no January guilt please) and taking into account that my waistband needs a little tweaking (so no joy in clothes shopping at the moment), this sale season might be the perfect time to invest in a girl bag.
So…… onto the Orla Kiely website to investigate my options…….. and look what I found…… 3 bags that would so do the trick. I love the vintage vibe and am torn between the 2 holly bags. They feel like something I might have found in my mum’s wardrobe from the fifties or sixties….. Think Doris Day! Will I play safe with patent claret or will I go gold? By next Winter I will love the fact that whichever I might choose is not current season, but rather has been loved by me for 1 whole year! Now to get my hands on those vintage Balenciagas again…….
