My Frivolous Fancy

Friday, March 21, 2014
This morning I went shopping.
I needed two things... sunglasses (because I just broke my good pair), and a gift for a friend in America. That was it. Just two things.

But on the way to my destination I  passed a most tempting shop, and there in the window as I swept by, my eye catches a glimpse of a beautiful red bag. A travel bag. I slow my walking pace. I pause. I turn. I hesitate. It looks so stylish. I imagine myself boarding the flight for New Caledonia later this year.... and now there is no resisting. I retrace my steps, enter the shop. Pick it up. And it's mine

Bags are my obsessive compulsive disorder.



Truth be told, I find it extremely difficult to pass over anything that is red.

Bags are my retail weakness.
I know (don't deny it), that every woman has a retail weakness. Something you find it really hard to pass up, even if you don't need it. What is yours?

The most popular are shoes.
I have a friend who can't stop buying bras.
Scarves.
Nightwear.
Jewellry.
Nail Polish.
Lipstick.

My retail obsessive compulsive disorder is bags.
I know that my husband is going to read this blog post sometime today while he is at work, and he will be rolling his eyes right now!

I can't help buying bags.  This is my current everyday handbag. It was my Christmas gift to myself. It has lasted 3 months so far - which is pretty good for me.



This was my favourite bag ever.... until the strap broke.


I have beach bags....


And American brand bags....


And little bags.... (a coin purse is a bag right)?


And waterproof bags....


Bags are my retail therapy weakness.

What is yours?

I think mine is tote bags. Bags to carry my books and papers in. Yes, I think that is it. At least for now.

Stopping in from Blackberry Rambles. I'll be visiting again.

Books, and at the moment the particular love is recipe books (especially free e-books; I have far too many)!!!!

Love your new bag! Not sure what mine is.....certainly books. Maybe teacups and embroidered linens?
