Friday's Fashion

Currently listening to: Born To Make You Happy by Britney Spears

Good morning lovely ladies!

Today I'd like to step away from nail art and show you a bag I recently purchased which has possibly become my new favourite bag:


I bought this from Primark last week for £9.  I wasn't actually looking for a bag but it caught my eye and I just felt like it would be silly to walk away from it.

It's in the style of a satchel with two ornamental buckles, a lock, a handle and a shoulder strap.  Inside, in addition to the large compartment, there is a zipped pocket and two small pockets, all decorated in the pretty floral lining shown below.  I don't think I looked inside when I bought it so when I opened it to have a proper look at home I was really rather pleasantly surprised by this lining.  For a Primark bag, I think it's beautifully finished.


This week I've been at college and I've been able to use this bag to cart my books and lunch around in.  I always have difficulty finding bags which are big enough for my college materials but this one is ideal; it's so spacious.  Plus it's ideal for spring as it captures two spring trends: pastel colours and floral cut outs.  As you may have gathered by now that I'm completely enamored with this bag!

What do you think of my bargain buy girls?  Are you a fan of Primark bags?  Have you made any bargain purchases recently?

Bye for now,
Laura

  1. We never get the nice bags in our pennys. It's really annoying!! I love this one. I still haven't found a nice bag to hold my college stuff. I have so much to lug around I doubt I ever will :P

    1. I think I went to Pennys once, about 10yrs ago when I visited Ireland. I bought a beautiful parka coat that I still have fond memories of even though I no longer have it lol.
      It is ridiculously difficult to find decent bags for college, I agree!

  2. I love it! And it's a great bargain.
    I'm addicted to buying handbags, although I haven't bought one for about a month (big step for me. :D)
