To Buy Or Not To Buy?

sale bags
Have you found anything in the winter sales yet? Several items from my wishlists have been reduced by now but I’m having a hard time deciding as I’d like to reduce my shopping habits a bit this year.

These bags are all on sale at matchesfashion right now. I wasn’t a huge fan of Stella McCartney’s original Falabella bags as the square design like this one didn’t appeal to me much. But these little heart shaped versions of the Falabella are actually pretty cute. And I love that shade of blue so this one ended up on my wishlist.

Christopher Raeburn always has very original bag designs on offer. I already fell in love with his tortoise bag last season which you can see here. This little shark clutch is on sale now and I’m again sorely tempted. I just love its cute yet simplistic design. The first known shark ancestors date back to more than 400 million years ago. Today’s shark species are extremely fascinating but most populations are threatened due to human activity.

So being a huge shark advocate this bag is actually so me…but I have resolved to spend a bit less this year and reduce consumption. I’m far too addicted to go minimalist all at once but I’d like to slow down a bit and look at more sustainable brands. How are your New Year’s resolutions coming along, if you have any?

    Von denen würde ich keine kaufen, mir gefallen die Designs ganz und gar nicht.

    I don’t think I would ever use the shark clutch:) It looks different but something I wouldn’t ever go for. Marni one is pretty, and it can be worn everyday.

    I really love the heart purse from Stella McCartney, since I have the Falabella bag I’m completely Stella-addicted:)

    Ich würde die Marni eventuell in einer anderen Farbe ganz hübsch finden, der Rest wäre mir zu extravagant für so teure Taschen, bei mir müssen die dann immer so simpel sein, dass ich sie jahrelang habe. Aber sehr interessante Auswahl! :)

    The yellow bag is fab, love it ! Kisses

    Hi Christina! I love these, especially the Marni bag. You definitely have a knack for accessorizing with clutches, and I could see you with the shark one. As for my resolutions….they’ve all been on hold since I was sick. But now that I’m better I don’t have any excuses! Cheers to a lovely 2016!
