Last week, instead of saving money for Uni books I splurged on a new handbag and purse. ?
The handbag and purse are from Colette by Colette Hayman. I didn’t intentionally plan on buying them, but I wondered into the store and kept looking at them. I left the store, but had to go back to get them. The Handbag was $70 AUD and the purse with 50% off was $15 AUD. $70 is the most I have ever spent on a handbag, in fact this is actually the first ‘adult’ handbag and purse that I own. I have always had tote or messenger bags and random cute wallets. I just hope it’s not the start of a handbag addiction…..
I absolutely adore the colour of this handbag. I also really like that it’s very simple, but attractive at the same time.
There is a lot of room inside (the picture doesn’t do it justice). You have a zipped section (where I keep keys, lip gloss and random things) a pouch for your phone and another large pouch, where I keep….
Notebooks! So.. I might have accidentally purchased these to go with the bag because I liked the simplicity as well… It was important. No really… Heh.
The back of the bag is just blue and white, which is nice. 😀
Guys. I love this purse. I can not tell you how awesome it is, to have a purse where all of your cards actually fit inside. Instead of having a small wallet and having to take ten cards out at once, just to find one.
What I probably love most about this purse is the way that the card and change section is divided. All the cards are on one side and assessable when you unlock the magnet clip-lock-thingy. There are four folds for cards FOUR!!!
The change and cash side is opened with a zipper that gives you easy access to the moneys. There is also another zipped section inside to make sure that no coins escape. Although, my purse is pretty light at the moment… Doh.
Also, I recently lovingly stole my dads Canon 600D (he upgraded) and used it to take these photos. I only realised when importing that I forgot to set the quality to maximum on the camera, so they are a bit grainy. My old camera was the Canon 500D, and while I love it and the inspiration it gave me to keep taking photos, the fact that I managed to damage it not long after I had it (boo), trying to use it with half the screen fuzzy was a bit of a chore. So I am looking forward to exploring the world with this new one. ? ?
Mum gave me this really cute owl tote. It’s so colourful! The eyes are so big. ?
