I am that sort of person who belives that a woman can never have too many handbags (and hats and scarves). Because I bought too many handbags in the past and they are taking up all the space in the wardrobe, once upon a time I got panic about it. Then for about a little while (yes I think it was only for about a couple of years), I stopped buying bags, of course with a very big effort that I had to make to resist all the temptations:-(
Just recently I got so drawn into Country Road canvas bags, that my old problem sort of came back. I am out of control.
On this Saturday, we went to the Country Road shop in Woden Plaza. I tried almost all the canvas bags available in the shop, with Vivian playing aside and my husband waiting by side too. I ended up getting two bags home. One was woollen felt grey colour with white belt, more for the winter scene; another is classic denim with brown belt. I was also very indecisive between this denim one and another stripy black and white one in the shop. I went to Denim one just because I felt like it at that moment. But I did believe that I probably will come back very soon and get another one just to make a collection.
Apart from these two new bags, I was given by my colleague an old black one. I washed and scrubbed it and it came out quite nicely. So I have 3 Country Road Canvas Bags now. I am not a person who is into brands at all, but I really like its shape, material and colour design, except there is not enough pockets. They look equally trendy and in-style no matter you have the bag full or kind of empty. And I haven’t seen any one which can compare to it.
So I am pretty happy. Now all my outfits would be built around my bags, not the other way around:-)
