If you read my post on my search for a new everyday handbag (if you haven't then you can read it here) the you will know that I have been hunting high and low for my perfect bag. The one I have now was actually on my list but it was the one that I dismissed as the 'never going to happen, way too much money' version. However thanks to my wonderful mama, I'm now the proud owner of the Jimmy Choo 'Rosalie' Bag.
Isn't it beautiful? This is something that my mum has been trying to buy me for a while now, as soon as she found out there was a bag with my name she decided I was having it, as it's the first time it's ever happened, normally anything with my name has to be specially ordered . The only catch was the price, even now I own it it's eye watering, so when she told me she wanted to buy it for my 21st back in March I promptly refused, It was a lovely gesture but I just couldn't let her do it. So she waited and the other day we went to the Bullring and she oh so casually suggested we look at handbags, this was her plan all the long as she knew that once I had seen it I wouldn't be able to resist it. She has learnt from the best, my Nan, who was pretty Ninja at making sure she payed for things and next thing I knew I was stood on the escalator back down with my new baby in my hand. It was clearly fate as obviously it's named after (I like to think this, don't tell me I'm wrong) and also it was the last one left, clearly it was always meant to be mine!
This is my first designer anything and I feel so lucky to have it and so grateful to my mum for buying it for me, it's not something I take lightly as we didn't have a lot of money in my childhood and she has worked so hard to change that and I know just how happy and proud she feels to be able to buy me something like this. It's something that I am also going to appreciate and I will look after it as well or probably better than the things that I've worked to buy for myself. Which means that this will be looked after like a child, it isn't allowed on the floor, there will be no leaky or melty things allowed anywhere near it and if anyone marks it I will not be best pleased.
So there you go, I finally have my dream bag and you'll probably be seeing it a lot on here as I'll be using it as my everyday handbag so if you like variety in your handbags then this is not the place for you. I don't mind, it's too pretty not to take everywhere with me.
Have you got an everyday handbag like me or do you like to change it up a little?
