A few of weeks ago I galavanted off to Bicester for a weekend away. Mainly, so I could visit the shopping outlet; Bicester Village but also so I could have a cheeky spa break at the same time. Two birds with one stone, and all that.
Now, I do have a few weaknesses in life and Mulberry handbags are one of them. If you have read my hugely popular post of my Mulberry handbag I bought at Bicester village you will know what an addict I am, and how hard I find it going into a Mulberry shop and not come out a thousand pound lighter and with a big smile on my face. I have recently bought a Mulberry handbag so I told myself to be sensible and not to buy another one.
You will be pleased (as well as shocked) to hear that I didn’t buy a Mulberry handbag, but instead opted for this divine Vivienne Westwood number.
The name of my blog kinda gives it away, but I am a big sucker for the colour pink. I could clearly justify this handbag to myself….. It was a Vivienne Westwood and I don’t already own a Vivienne Westwood bag. It was pink and I don’t own a handbag in that shape. Clearly I needed the bag in my life.
To top it all off the bag was an absolute bargain. I mention Bicester Village in a lot of my posts as I buy so much there, but you really do save so much money. This beaut of a bag was only £245. Plus as I stayed at Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa I received an extra 10% off, meaning I got the bag for just £220.50! This pink colour is also used in their current Spring/ Summer collection so looks bang up to date too.
Now for a bit more detail on the bag… Its leather and very sturdy. Some times you can find with bigger bags that they are really heavy before you put anything in them, then once you fill them with all the essentials you can barely pick it up and they leave a big dent in your arm! This one is really light so I don’t struggle carrying it for long periods of time.
I love the colour and the simple Vivienne Westwood orb logo on the front. I’m not a fan, when the brand is plastered all over a bag.
It comes with a nice long strap to attach to the bag if you want and has plenty of inside storage – a large zip pocket and 2 slot pockets for items like your phone.
I’m really pleased with the bag and as the colour is so striking that I’ve had lots of comments on it.
