Fringe Benefits

I'm so excited about finally owning this fringed suede bag. I spied it in Topshop LAST YEAR and I fell in love with it. I couldn't justify splashing out on it at the time though as I had just bought a new bag. I thought maybe I would pick it up later in the sales, but it disappeared very quickly and I was gutted that I didn't splurge when I first saw it. I searched in vain for it on ebay for months and I had almost, ALMOST, gotten over it, but for some reason, it popped into my head again a few weeks ago. I decided I would have one more look on ebay and if it wasn't there, I vowed to let it go. 

Guess what? I found it. In an even better colour too! The version I originally saw in Topshop was black but I love this colour more. There were loads of bidders but I stubbornly won the auction and actually got it for cheaper than it was in the shop. Woohoo! I've been wearing it incessantly since it arrived in the post.
