cookieOptions = {...}; secondhand rose: THRIFTED THURSDAYS/ two

Thursday, 19 September 2013


Confession: I am a crazy bag lady. I love bags of all kinds and I have them in a whole range of styles, colours, shapes, materials and price points (nothing too high street yet, but hopefully soon!). In my opinion, you can never have too many bags.

This multicoloured wicker(?) basket bag I scored from Value Village, for under five dollars, is probably my number one favourite in my collection. I have worn this bag to its absolute death. The strap is currently attached to the body of the bag by a twist tie, so far it's working but I don't know how much longer it will hold out. I'll definitely cry when it breaks for good.

Before I started the blog, I would wear this bag with almost every outfit. There are so many colours it can match with and I adore the gold tone chain shoulder strap. Sadly right after I started this blog is when the chain decided to crap out on me so I only really bring it out for special occasions now. It gives me something to look forward to and my mood is definitely elevated every time I wear it.
