  1. You know how sometimes, you dream up an idea of a bag you've seen and love but in a colour that doesn't exist, and hope that one day that the handbag fairies will grant your secret wish and this bag will come into existence?!

    Last year, inspired by another TPFer who was discussing building a core collection of bags, I decided I needed to rebuild my collection almost from scratch, encompassing no more than 10 bags in total to cover all occasions. I was only actually using a few of my bags anyway, so I set about selling the ones that hadn't been out of their dust bags for over a year and began planning starting over...

    This bag I had owned before in another colour, but sold on soon after I bought her because the colour wasn't quite the right neutral to cover all bases...I dreamt one day that the perfect neutral shade would come into being, and lo and behold, not long after I imagined her, she did!

    But getting hold of her was a waiting game...she's been available on the website for over a month, but I wanted to see her in real life before buying and customer services told me they didn't know when it would hit the stores. So I resigned myself to waiting, after all I didn't 'need the bag urgently' as CS had asked me, more like I just wanted it urgently!

    And then this week I learnt that Selfridges had received stock, the only store in London to have one in real life! So on my day off today into town I went...and here she is! Almost...[​IMG]

  15. I love that colour so much, I hope it goes in the winter sales because I can't justify it at full price. Bought to much the last couple of months.
