Blue Velvet


Sometimes, no matter how much we tell ourselves we don't need that completely unnecessary item it just isn't enough and we have to give in and buy it. This gorgeous little blue velvet bag is my totally unnecessary item! While wondering around the Zara sales last week, not looking for anything in particular I spotted it. It was sitting all alone on a shelf that was covered in knitwear...not very neatly displayed knitwear may I add, bad Zara! I knew as soon as I noticed it that I couldn't leave without it, and spent the rest of my time in the store walking around holding the bag trying to tell myself otherwise. I went through every reason I could think of for why I should get it such as, will you use it enough?, is it practical?, is it worth the money? In the end I decided the answer to these questions was "yes". Especially since it was half price and the only one I could see in the whole shop. I am more of a big bag person, usually so I can carry around MUCH more than is necessary but the odd day or outfit does call for a smaller more dainty bag. In my opinion there is always room for a little bit of velvet especially in Autumn Winter so I think it is and accessory I will enjoy for years to come and I am totally in love with it :)

  1. I love velvet! This is such a pretty bag! I hate how Zara is always a mess. It makes it impossible to find what you're looking for.

    1. I do too, I feel it should be kept a little tidier because the clothes can be really quite expensive.
