Here's the deal: I can count my entire handbag collection on one, maybe two hands.
I think. Don't quote me on that.
Needless to say, it's been a while since I splurged on handbag. My collection may be fairly small, but each bag although somewhat spendy has justified it's cost per wear. My Mulberry bayswater has quite simply taken a massive battering since I wiped out my student loan in my first year. Ugh, I can't even remember the year I graduated.
Whilst I'm in my current mindset: adulting the shit out of life, my number one priority being my house deposit fund (not quite the nude Gucci Disco I had been lusting after, sob).
A girl's gotta treat herself now and again - hashtag am i right?
Enter my new current handbag crush: Whistles.
Sadly my budget never quite stretches to indulge in their clothing line, but their AW handbags are another situation. Sophisticated, classic and all with golden hardware. I want them all. Even the £25 pom pom. And the lush gold hoops.
Falling under the £250 price bracket, you cannot deny that these decent leather offerings is a pretty sweet deal. So much so, I've told myself on repeat for the last week and indulged in the the navy shoulder bag (pom pom included) as a birthday treat.
All that is left to be decided now is how to justify the nude tote. Because THAT would - let's face it - be perfect for spring. Nah, that excuse still doesn't warrant the price tag. Bugger.
