I picked up the purse and the shoes in the Blue Cross sale and the Mac lipstick I got… because I wanted to get a second Mac lipstick and ‘Plumful’
is the one I’ve been lusting after second to ‘Syrup’. I’m very pleased with what I got with my money, a very good investment of my Christmas money, I think!
I’ve got lots of nice purses but I really liked the idea of getting something simpler looking, well made and a bit more ‘grown up’ (I’m aware that sounds a bit silly but, silly I am!) – And this is the beauty that I bought – It’s a Jasper Conran and I got it for £14.50 rather than the original £29.
It’s really really big (I Like big purses) and I had, specifically, been looking for a patent one so this one pretty much fit the bill. I also love the huge twisty buckle (can’t find the right word for it) on the front pocket, it just makes it look really distinctive and it’s a really nice way to keep the front pocked closed – I keep my business cards in there (Still find it weird that I have business cards), plus it feels really satisfying when you twist it (Easily pleased)
There’s plenty of card slots inside, a coin part and then just plenty of space for other things – It’s pretty much perfect and I’m a bit in love with it…
And then we come to the beauty that is Mac’s ‘Plumful’ – What can I say? You can see it, it’s just beautiful. I shall swatch it, soon, as I want to do a post swatching my whole, little, Mac collection.
The last thing I bought was these trainers by Red Herring – They were, originally, £35 but I got them for £9.45, a bargain I’m sure you’ll agree. I wear trainers more than I wear any other type of shoe, as much as I’d like to wear pretty shoes more often, I tend to have to pick practicality above appearance, the fibro makes it hard enough when I walk, let alone not having sensible foot wear! I thought these were a nice balance as they’re trainers but they have the really pretty lace overlay.
So that’s what I got – Some massive bargains and some real investment – Yay I like that sort of shopping.
