Hi all, It's that time of the year again when I should be tightening my purse strings into a knot, and yet sales are at a major fever pitch, and I can't help being lulled into wanting a new handbag even though I have got four I have still not carried around!! I missed out on the grey marc jacobs alyona which was on sale at harvey nichols manchester with 60% knocked off, and my sister missed out on an anthracite grey large uptown in smooth leather with get this, almost 70% knocked off the retail price They are so hard to come by in that leather finish, and it seems that only harvey nichols here seemed to stock it as all the YSL boutiques never even had them in stock, plus none of the uptowns even went into the january sales according to the SA. Now I'm wondering whether I should go for the larger sized manor bag in beige, they have sold out in all the london boutiques, with no manor bags in the sale left, plus it's sold out online. Now I've always liked the look of the manor bag, especially in the lighter beige as opposed to the black or the chocolate, but even thought it's currently on sale with 40% off, the two left in the store have signs of wear on the rolled up leather handles, and being beige, show up even more than on the chocolate. There are only two of the beige left and one of the chocolate. There is a patent manor in putty too but I'm not too sure, patent seems too high fashion and I prefer the contrast of the gold hardwrae than the silver found on the patent manors..do I really need another bag?! Am I only opting for this cos it's the only one of my possible candiates that are actually left in the sale, for now?
