First up, a beautiful Sara Berman patent leather bag - with ORANGE lining! You know how much I love orange. I had four different bags slung over my arm (including a Zandra Rhodes) as I tried to find a quiet corner to have a good rifle through them to see which one suited best. Although not the cheapest, or strictly in the sale, the Ms Berman won hands down. It's got a really good weight to it and it's the perfect size. Big enough to carry a brolly, wallet, phone and make-up, but not so big that I lug around a ton of assorted other shit. I am notorious for carrying a huge bag and shoving all sorts of crap in it every day - bad for my posture! The Berman was also the obvious choice to play host to Lex, my new Alexander McQueen skull keyring - just one of my truly fantastic pressies from Mr G.
Here you can see Lex hanging out on my new bag accompanied by my Tatty Devine cat bangle that was a birthday gift from my wee brother and his girlfriend - good taste!

In this photo I'm wearing a new grey cardigan that I snapped up in Topshop for a mere £7. Sticking to my 'only buy if you liked it full price' motto, this felt like a great bargain - down from £35. The 'Maternity' label stitched to the inside may have something to do with the generous reduction, but hey, I'm not fussy - it's on the inside! Also in shot are the new black 'suedette' wedges I picked up in TK Maxx with the bag. I have to confess that they were not in the sale either, but isn't TK Maxx just a perpetual sale? Anyhoo, I'd had my eye on these for a while and at 30 squid, I think I got a fair deal.
Apologies for not posting a better photo of the cardigan. We took loads and in every one I look like a gormless giant smurf - not good. This was the best of the bunch - eek!
A leopard print bodysuit, black pencil skirt and *fantabulous* electric blue stilletto ankle boots completed the swag. I will save these for another day.
That's all for now my lovelies! What are you all planning for New Year's Eve?? I want to hear all your plans!
