When I'm not drooling over the Net-A-Porter website, and My-Wardrobe, and ShopBob...ok you get the idea - all the money grabbing websites (what's a girl to do?!), then Aldo is one of my go-to stores for beautiful, sturdy and practical bags, without the huge price tag. It's a Saturday night, I'm relaxed in my tracky b's snuggled up to the dog, getting ready for this year's first episode of BGT, so obviously, the Aldo online shopping has commenced.
If you love the Celine Phantom bag as much as I do and are very envious of Laura who has them in every colour, then the Folortan bag would be a fabulous alternative. The pastel hue is soft and understated, and the material studs give it a slight edge without being tooo much for the colour. I am genuinely very tempted by this bag, and at £50, it's going to burn your pocket a LOT less than the Phantom. In my dreams, I will own the Celine Phantom, but until then, Aldo you may have to cure my smile bag needs.
Following on with the soft nude and pastel hues, with a bit of a Hermes Birkin twinge, the Ullum bag pulls my heartstrings very much. For me, I like inter-usuable bags. I want to be able to mix them up for work, shopping, days out or smart events and this bag screams USE ME WITH EVERYTHING, which I think I probably could. It comes in a variety of colours, but for me, the taupe shade fits the bill perfectly. Again, at £50, my bank card won't be weeping.
So now I have to make up my mind..buy one of these beauties or splash out at Net-A-Porter...
