IT'S NOT JUST A PURSE

I've never really cared about what purse I own. It always seemed stupid to spend a lot of money on something that sits in a bag all day. I remember when I was younger and I bought my very first 'adult' purse (Bottom Photo, Purple Purse). I walked into Accessorize and thought it was so mature compared to my little flowery wallets and that I'd look like a 'big girl'. Of course its natural to get bored of something, so then came purse number two (Bottom Photo, Burgundy Purse).

These purses combined have lasted me around four years, not bad considering neither were over 20 pound. However, having worked behind a bar for a couple of months and seeing MILLIONS of purses, I decided that, actually, a purse does matter. When you take it out of your bag, people DO look at it. It can also help with organisation (customers that take 10 minutes to find their card or a 1 pound coin are unbelievably annoying). So for Christmas I asked for this Ted Baker Purse to give me some new found pride when I had to pay for something. 

I think it's safe to say that this purse would appeal to anybody. Even the fussy people that want 9 card holders, one zippy bit and a pocket big enough for their notes without getting creased......
This purse has 1 zip pocket, 1 clasp pocket, 5 places to put notes and receipts and 12 card holders...ha. It is expensive, but when I now compare it to my last two purses I think it is totally worth it.

    I never like to spend too much on purse - I think I try to stay within £20-25 max when purchasing one!

  7. It's lovely! Before I decided on a Cath Kidston bag I was debating on getting a Ted Baker purse for Christmas but eventually decided against it. I totally agree with you about people looking at your purse when you pull it out. I work in retail and I always have a nosey at what purses people have. I always compliment people with Ted Baker purses too. I might ask for one for my 21st :) xx

  17. I used to buy purses all the time! I have over ten I reckon, perhaps more... but Ive found if I use big ones I carry around all this stuff I dont need! But I do love getting a new one and organising everything into it... only i'd then leave the rest of the crap in the old ones!
