A nice sum of money came my way a few day ago - and I decided to get myself a decent handbag. A couple of blue handbags from Marc Jacobs caught my eye. I hurried into Copenhagen yesterday to have a quick look at the goodies.
First of all nobody offered to help me until a second visit two hours later, when I was carrying shopping bags from some expensive shops down the road.
Second, all the new handbags have rather short straps not allowing me to carry across my body. That's the designers choice, but one that makes me look elsewhere.
However, the blue colour sort of stuck with me... Here's my choice:
This bag is from the Danish brand Adax. The colour is very close to the bags by Marc Jacobs, and the straps are very long and adjustable. Typically the only one in the store was damaged, so another one is on it's way next week. Hopefully I can pick it up on Tuesday.
As always when I buy new things I write down how many items in my wardrobe this will go with. In this case I focused on my coats and jackets, and there's plenty of possibilities. No big surprise since I've had a blue and purple capsule wardrobe for some time now!
Last week I got a beach dress for our summer holiday, and this week I ordered a swimsuit to go with it. I really hope it fits because it looks so cute, and it wasn't expensive at all. I'd hate having to return it.
From the same place I also ordered two new rings as the were on sale...
As I saw on online shop after another announcing "end of season sale" (the season being spring?) I came across this top that I thought would be great with jeans or my navy pencil skirt - and my new bag!
It'll be the only lace item in my wardrobe so it's a bit of an experiment. As if this wasn't enough - on my way around Copenhagen yesterday I saw one of the "nice" shoe shops had a sale going on. Inside I knew there were ballet flats from the Australian brand Bloch. These shoes are highly recommended by a few of my friends, so I entered with some expectations... And left with these cute and super comfortable shoes:
This has indeed been a bit of a shopping spree. Although I love many of the bags from Marc Jacobs I certainly have my reservations about visiting that shop again! Of course - had I waited until Visible Monday they would have noticed me immediately! You might want to see for yourself what I'm talking about on Patti's blog: Not Dead Yet Style!
Also - very soon I'll be posting pictures from my first meet up with another blogger - the lovely Anna from Four Seasons One Wardrobe. She is such an interesting and sweet girl, and cute of course!
See you soon everyone!
