My New Handbag: Designer-Look Satchel

I haven't blogged in what feels like ages! I have been so busy that I haven't really had time, but I've got a few posts planned so keep an eye out!

I thought I'd ease myself back into blogging by doing a short post on my new handbag, which I absolutely love. I have quite a few bags, but I tend to hate them after a while and wonder why I ever bought them. A few months ago I kept seeing celebrities with what I later learned to be the Mulberry Alexa (whilst I love fashion, I don't really follow the industry!). Of course the Alexa bag - as well as being overly expensive - is obviously made of leather, therefore I eagerly searched for a cruelty-free dupe. I stumbled upon a website called a-shu.co.uk which stocked a faux-leather lookalike version of the bag in several colours (A-shu also sell loads of other cruelty-free bags in designer styles). But when I eventually got round to buying the bag, they had sold out! Luckily I found the same bag on Ebay; there are a few different sellers but I purchased mine from this one, which is a very affordable £16.95.

A couple of days after ordering, my gorgeous new bag arrived and I couldn't wait to use it. I opted for a neutral tan coloured bag so that it will go with most outfits. It has a very pretty floral design on the inside, and a few handy compartments to store your phone and keys etc.






I already have a wishlist of other bags that I hope to buy :) What do you think of this one?
