NEW BAG + outfit

Yesterday I picked up yet another new bag! But for $1.00 I could hardly say no! Plus this bag is a handy size as most of mine are relatively small so I can’t fit much in them which can be a bit of a problem.  At first I thought the bag was leather which would have been a real score for such a low price but I am now pretty sure its vinyl – normally I hate fake leather, the stuff you see in retail stores looks like plastic and for me just doesn’t cut it. However on this particular bag the leather is all worn and battered so I’m not that bothered.

Not only is this bag bigger than my usual size but it also has a super wide gusset which makes it perfect for a book bag as I can stack them all up. Then again just in general it’s handy to have a bag that you can place items flat in.

As for the outfit, in case you don’t know, I live in New Zealand which in the southern hemisphere so we are starting to come in to spring. YAY! Therefore my outfits will be getting a little more summery. I have just rediscovered this dress (worn as a skirt) and I am in love all over again. I got it from supre of all places years ago! They lace top is just my usual one $4 from a red cross store and the denim vest is my own creation, I had a go a D.I.Y and un-picked the sleeves I actually did this a while ago but never wore it but now after trying it on again I am warming to it.
