Christmas shopping has taken on a whole new slant since I discovered the joys of TKMaxxshopping. Okay it isn’t exactly a joy, far too much rummaging for the average luxury shopper, but if you have time to browse it’s amazing what you can find.
And here is my latest purchase. I have never been a designer bag lady – they tend to be too big and way too expensive anyway. I also commute on London Underground with a laptop bag and everything but the kitchen sink, so need something that is secure and perfect to keep my really valuable things safe. Hence it needs to be long enough to go across my body. Highly un-chic, highly practical.
Up until recently I had a black bag bought in a sale which was serviceable but extremely boring. So *drum-roll please* I am glad to say that I have upped the anti a bit on the bag front with this natty little Patrick Cox number which was 70% off the original price. They had it in black but this grey which is almost lilac (let’s call it Dove for argument’s sake) goes with everything and I simply fell in love with the lining.
It has internal pockets for the safe keeping of keys, phone and credit cards but is large enough to take my Kindle and make-up. I simply love it.
