Who could resist this gorgeous bag (it was reduced as well!) which is so over the top! Apart from its fabulous looks, it's very functional. It is made from heavy furnishing brocade, so very sturdy, and has a tasselled zip along the top for security. The handles are just big enough to go over your shoulder, but not too long to just hold in your hand.
The back has a zipped pocket (with another tassel!) ideal for tickets and shopping lists.
Inside, it's roomy enough to take my work A5 diary and all the other things I need, and is lined with a plasticised dark fabric (perfect in case of make up spillages) with more pockets and another zipped compartment - this time without tassel!
DH absolutely hates it, and does his best to make me leave it at home when we are out together! He says only someone eccentric would buy a bag like that, and I'm not eccentric, which sounds almost like a back-handed compliment to me! Viva eccentricity!
