I decided to get back on the horsie and buy something else online. After so many terrible experiences (see previous post), I didn't want to leave it too long and lose my nerve. I have a responsibility to keep the economiez going you know. I was browsing The Outnet this morning and saw this bag. For 138 pounds it's a steal. It's purple (one of my favourite colours), it's made from soft, beautiful leather, it's a limited edition and it has leopard lining. All my favourite things.
So I bought it.
I trust The Outnet. The sale sister of Net-A-Porter, I have absolute faith that this item is still currently in stock, it will arrive via DHL in a timely fashion for a reasonable shipping charge and it will be exactly the same size as the measurements say it is. It will, indeed, be a good online shopping experience.
