I just received this bag from Mint Velvet:

I hate the phrase 'buttery leather' but it is the butteriest leather I've ever felt. And the hardware is antiqued so it's not all shiny and obtrusive.

Love it.

Anyone else want to share?! I'm feeling nosey...

3 long sleeved T shirts from Primark for £10: 1 plain pale grey, 1 grey with thin white stripes and one turquoisey/emaraldy green. All have lovely scooped neckline and will keep me toasty by layering them up throughout this cold snap smile

Nice bag op

AmenGirl Wed 13-Jan-16 21:56:17

This. And it's kept me lovely and warm in the office all week.

MaryMarigold Wed 13-Jan-16 22:23:03

Ooh nice AmenGirl.

I like the idea of layering tops but am Kondoing and don't want to buy clothes that aren't perfectly right.

It's tricky, and I'm freezing!

Not purchased YET but trying to decide between


Do I go plain or little locket?

ELR Thu 14-Jan-16 13:09:47

The second one is the best!

Higge Thu 14-Jan-16 13:20:42

Silk T shirt

I haven't done much sale shopping and I'm actually pleased j didn't end up buying lots of tat!

I got this cardigan coat from Zara which is really cosy and goes with everything.

Also got these boots from next which I'm going to wear with midi dresses

And lastly I got a couple of makeup revolution palettes that are supposed to be dupes for urban decay and hourglass palettes so not really in the sale but much cheaper than the originals!

I got this today for 30% of original price. V pleased as had my eye on it and didn't realise it was even in the sale.

MaryMarigold Thu 14-Jan-16 20:37:44

That's lovely Live.

Office, I prefer the plain MK wallet. Saffiano is pretty hard-wearing, which is ideal in a wallet.

My bag had its first outing today. Still love it grin.

MuchasSmoochas Thu 14-Jan-16 20:50:23

Both bags fab. Clicked on the MV hoping it would be in the sale but alas No.

teacher1984 Thu 14-Jan-16 21:54:10

Livinthepresent - what brand is the bag? Have been looking for something very similar. It's lovely!

Melonaire Thu 14-Jan-16 22:04:27

That's a lovely bag Liveinthepresent

I've just bought this

Melonaire Thu 14-Jan-16 22:05:59

In green.

biscuitkumquat Thu 14-Jan-16 22:09:50

I got the soar lip liner & brave lipstick MAC (ala Kylie Jenner) & I'm so pleased with them both

TheGreenTriangle Thu 14-Jan-16 22:35:11

Succumbed and bought these shoes, far more than I'd normally spend but couldn't resist.

Love the bag OP.

TheMightyMing Thu 14-Jan-16 22:40:55

Couple of lovely tops from Pure collection, love the way they come beautifully wrapped.

Gorgeous Baukjen leather skirt ( this season) from e bay brand new with tags, it's less than a third of the current sale price, but sadly it's much shorter than I thought, so sad as it's glorious. Going back on e bay this weekend I think sad

Liveinthepresent Thu 14-Jan-16 22:59:31

Ooh thanks for sharing my bag love- it has made my week. smile
It's whistles and think it's called Mabil satchel.
Love the thread idea !

officebairn Fri 15-Jan-16 16:00:39

Wow to those shoes, just wow!

DavetheCat2001 Sat 16-Jan-16 17:53:36

I bought these bonkers shoes. They actually do look cool with skinny black jeans. Just need a suitable occasion grin

TrashPanda Sat 16-Jan-16 18:14:19

these in black and navy
this in black
red coat
comfy boots

Plus quite a few tops and cardigans things. A blazer, couple more pairs of trousers and another skirt. Nothing fancy, all from Gap, New Look, Sainsburys, DPs, Topshop or River Island. Was back to work after mat leave this month so needed new bits and pieces.

Also got thses although totally the wrong season, as have been looking for a pair for ages and they are exactly what I want.

3 striped t-shirts - black/white, grey/white. black/tan
Burgundy leather Converse low-tops
A parka
2 jersey dresses - one red midi and one grey mini
Tartan mini skirt

Liking the bonkers shoes, Dave.

BritabroadinAsia Sat 16-Jan-16 19:22:26

Remus, I think this has come up on another thread before, but do the leather Converse have any arch support? Or are they as flat as the canvas ones?
