SARAH-BERMAN-PURSE

Yes I know, I only just got my Ted Baker purse!

However, this was an opportunity I was not going to miss! I don't know if you are aware of The Outnet. It is a website that sells designer pieces at a discounted price, basically its past season stock, hence why they can deduct some money off the cost. Last week they had a special 2nd birthday sale.
It was no ordinary sale though, You had to apply to get a ticket as only 2000 people were allowed to enter it. You just had to fill in the application form in order to be in with a chance of winning a ticket. When doing so, it said that the top 200 sharers would get a place.
To increase my chance of possibly getting a look into this sale I sent emails about it to my friends, and by doing so I ended up being one of the top 200 sharers, therefore guaranteeing me a ticket.

Now the best part... as this was their 2nd birthday sale... everything was £2! That's right, £2! Now you see why I was so keen to get a ticket for it?! There were rules though, you could only buy 1 item and once you have bought that item you were 'kicked out' of the sale, meaning you couldn't get back in.

My first thoughts were LEANNE GET TO THE HANDBAGS, THE HANDBAGS!
Unfortunately, by the time I got to work and realised the sale was actually live I had missed a chance on a handbag as they were all sold out! They included  Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Jimmy Choo, Lavin to name a few. So my next thought was to go to accessories and pick up something there. In the end I got this Sara Berman purse. Full price it would have been £112 but in this sale.. £2. I snapped it up and eagerly awaited its arrival

I ordered it on the Friday and it arrived on the Monday. Happy days.
Its sheepskin leather and has the studded detail on one flap. I love it but I have one problem. I don't know how I am going to use it without losing something. There are no card slots, just the zipped section for coins. As its leather it is so floopy that I would be scared to carry any cash or cards with me in case they fell out!
I am a bit undecided about what to do to it, do I keep it and use it as I should; as a purse. Use it as a small makeup bag maybe? or just sell it on ebay? I cant decide! It is gorgeous though and I do love it, just a little impractical!

I hope everyone is having a good start to their Easter break. It feels so much like a Saturday even though its Friday morning. Ive been awake since 7am too so it currently feels  a lot later than it really is! I am now off to get ingredients to make chicken tikka tonight. YUM!

Much love.
