Other | The Burberry Langley Crossbody Bag

My new pride and joy. Apparently money can't buy you happiness but I really beg to differ. Whilst a new bag or a new pair of shoes won't cure the common cold or heartache, they sure do make me happy. Besides, I would rather be miserable with a new bag on my shoulder or with a new pair of shoes on my feet!

If you read my recent Bicester Village haul then you would have seen this little beauty. I have always wanted an expensive nicer handbag. Whilst the bags from New Look, Topshop and River Island are nice and all, they aren't luxurious or something which I will cherish and look after. Don't get me wrong, I don't throw money around like there's no tomorrow or buy one Gucci handbag after another, but I don't feel like I would be upset if the strap broke on my £19.99 New Look handbag. Sure, I would be annoyed but I wouldn't sob over it like I would if I had saved up for a long time and bought the bag of my dreams. I want to work hard, save up for a long time and be able to purchase something which I will keep and be able to look back at and say "that is the result of my hard work." I would never buy anything for the sake of wearing a name tag on my arm but I do believe in treating yourself to nice items occasionally.

The Burberry Langley Crossbody Bag is a sweet little black leather bag which is to be worn across the body. It is made of the softest leather and has wonderful gold hardwear throughout the bag with a really secure little lock on the front. Size wise it is quite small so it isn't an everyday bag but it is perfect for a nice occasion where you don't need to carry around lots of rubbish with you. It holds my phone comfortably but it probably wouldn't fit an iPhone 7 Plus. It fits my credit card, ID, phone and house key comfortably, although I do have to take my house key off of my usual set of keys as there is no way my fluffy pom pom key ring is fitting in there!

I bought this bag for a real bargain at £119 which was down from its RRP price of £525, meaning I saved £406 which is pretty remarkable. I really cannot recommend taking a little trip out to Bicester Village if you were thinking of making a designer purchase. They might not have all of the bags in the current season out on sale for half price but you can find some real gems in there.

The next bag on my 'to-save-for' list? The Chanel Boy Bag in Gunmetal Grey. Each week I take all of the change from my purse into a jar to save up for it. So far I have saved £13.48. If I carry on at this rate I will be able to afford it in about 13 years time!

  2. That is such a gorgeous bag!
    I am saving for an iconic Chanel bag too. I have the money for it but everytime I go to get it I chicken out and can't justify spending the money on a handbag!
