I’ve been a mum for just over 8 years now and like a lot of mums, paying the bills and providing for my children has always been my priority when it came to what I spent my money on. I have always admired designer labels from a far but instead of shopping at Prada, I would shop at Primark and find items that looked elegant and glamorous with a much, much, much cheaper price tag!
I was a housewife for a few years and then I got a part time job before recently taking a full time corporate role and to celebrate I decided to treat myself to a new Michael Kors handbag! #Exciting
My friend who has a huge designer handbag and shoe collection already, came along with me and I was pleased to discover that they had a sale on!
At the Michael Kors store on Regents Street, London, I got myself the Dillon Top Zip Satchet handbag in Black that was originally priced at around £390 or was it…. £410….? (I’ve forgotten the exact price) but it was now half of that price and I got it for £197!!
I just love this bag!
It is strong and sturdy and a perfect size that fits just enough in without tempting you to squeeze in your kitchen sink (something which I usually do but I am determined not to with this bag! I am determined to keep this bag clutter free and only carry around my absolute essentials!!) It also came with a separate strap so I can wear it either on my wrist, arm or over my shoulder!
Excitingly whilst there, my friend treated me to a new purse too as a belated birthday present!
I couldn’t believe it, I am so lucky!!
They didn’t have this design in the black so I went for this beautiful beige colour instead and what I love about this purse is that it can also pass for a clutch bag too:
I chose the classic design for both items rather than the more on trend designs because I feel that they will go with so many clothes in my wardrobe and will last a long time!
