We came across two tables full of Rebecca Minkoff bags, all on sale! And after we had a little moment of excitement, we saw this beauty...
After falling instantly in love with it and already starting the justification process as to why I needed this, I looked at the price tag and furrowed my brow. Surely it couldn't say what I thought it was saying? It was originally €225, reduced to €154, then reduced again to €67.50.... I know. You don't pass up a bargain like that. And the shape is perfect for me. Compact, neat and just big enough to carry all my bits and bobs. Oh, it's slightly smaller than an iPad if that helps you visualise.
This taupe/grey snakeskin effect Mini 5-zip clutch has silver hardware and has three zips at the front that don't open into anything. The back is plain with just a little name tag and the strap can be removed completely, left long or doubled up to make it a smaller shoulder bag. They had it in black with gold hardware but I thought I'd get more use out of this lighter one of the coming months. I know. I'm very mature when it comes to justifying a completely unnecessary but oh so necessary purchase.
As I was paying, Joanne was standing beside me telling me that she'd be borrowing it all the time as she was also in The Ultimate Love with it, it took 0.4 seconds of me starting the sentence "Well you're going to be moving out soon and won't have instant access to my handbags" and she was off like a rocket to get one for herself. It's the only time you'll ever see Joanne running. She loves a bargain!
And so do I, so thanks Arnotts for having a brilliant sale well over a week after it started!
What was your best bargain from this year's sales?
