New bag


 I'm down to posting from my phone, as our internet is still not back grrrr. I'll post about the whole ridiculous saga one day, but for now, let's focus on the thrill and excitement of a new bag:


Mansur Gavriel small tote. Simple, no visible branding. Comes with a wallet which attaches to it. Mine is lined in a pale rose coloured leather.


I put it on laybuy, so I won't actually get to play with it and take pics 'til next payday, but here's a pic of its size:


That's my fashion thrill for the month.
It will keep me going through these dark, internet-free days.
Any fashion thrills for you?

    1. I will model it as soon as I can pick it up. It will be a couple more weeks due to bills :-(

  5. Very nice!! I'm curious, are the straps long enough so that you can sling the bag over the shoulder if need be? I hope you have internet back soon!

    1. Hi Louise, yes, I can easily carry it over my shoulder. I think it might be a bit of a tight fit for someone tall, with bigger arms and shoulders, but it's perfect for me.
      They do a large version too, but it was too big for me.

  6. Laybuy...never heard that term. We used to have layaway many years ago but most stores have done away with that since the rapid multiplication of credit cards. Your purse looks lovely.

    1. Laybuy is still popular here. it's good for people like me who have no discipline to speak of. I could have put it on my credit card, but that is like a bottomless pit of pretend money.....

  7. Hello Ruth,

    Anticipation is everything.....unfortunately, for us, we tend to go off any bright idea if we wait for more than a week. Indeed, every major decision in our lives has been made on the spot. Once we ponder....we do without. So, we should have to have your handbag NOW! It does look lovely and could surely become a friend for life....perhaps even better than some human ones?!

    We have stumbled upon you quite by chance and are delighted to spot darling GSL amongst your followers. We are going to be in good company we feel. Added to this we note that you can wrap your legs round your head.....fabulous for parties we think!

    Your posts are such fun...we are hooked!

    1. Hello Jane and Lance, thank you for visiting and commenting. Patience isn't usually one of my strong points, but needs must and so for frivolities I sometimes just have to wait. It is very hard not to rush down there and get it, but I am trying to improve my shopping discipline!
      Legs behind head is a good party trick, as are doing back arches and handstands, but I have to be careful these days.... too many injuries from showing off when under the influence!
      Off to visit your blog. Am very intrigued!

    1. Rose, I'm sure you wouldn't die!
      It has made us realise that we can live without it, although we would rather not.
      Anyway, it's back!!!!
