I wore this putfit for last mijnute Christmas shopping (and as an excuse not to wear a bra for the day).
I'm glad I haave finally finished all my shopping but this last week has be SO expensive- I completely forgot that I had to tax my car for a year, and get an MOT (it was actually due and I hadn't realised so cue some frantic organising and awful puplic trasnport), plus my birthday activity (going to Winter Wonderland) and its my sisters birrthday (as we are twins) and my Grandads this month. On the plus side I saw my dear friend Sadie Sinner preform and host in a burlesque show on Thursday (info here) and then slept the majority of the last 24 hours.
I love my furry black bag, and although its seen slightly better days its still my go to bag and has featured in nearly all my posts! I'm torn between retiring it to special occasions and buying a new one and just wearing it until it dies then spending several days crying over my loss. Chris bought it for me for my 21st and its the best birthday present I have ever got- being so close to Christmas I tend to ask for something smakl for my birthday so this was a lovely (and very spoilt) gift. When ever I get cpompliemnts over it (which is everytime I wear it) I practically shout at them that Chris bought it for me. The funny story of how this was bouught for me was I actually went to New York for my birthday and the day after I arrived I got a text from Chris saying "just had an x-ray :)". Yes the smilie face was included. After several hours i managaed to call him and he had crushed his foot. So had to go and buy this bag in crutches when I returned as I tried to sleep off my jet lag.
I can't leave that boy alone obviously.
Looking at a possible replacemtn for my bag (so he can only be used for special occasions) I finally found similar products. This beauty from Dorothy Perkins is practically mines cousin- perfectly slouchy and can carry the kitchen sink like mine. Topshop can never go wrong for a good bag, but my favorite has to be this one from H&M- which I spotted in store and is possibly the most reasonable price as well as being very cute.
It's an unwritter law that a black bag will go with everything, but can be a little... unexciting. A furry black bag brings a new texture to the look and changed what can be a dull look to something special. Plus as I like to wear mainly black the contracting texture really helps.
