I don’t know about you, but summer weather always makes me want new bags. It makes me want new shoes, dresses and flowery accessories too but primarily….bags.
Bright colours, nude colours, small satchels, cute clutches, anything goes and when they’re at a reduced price it’s even harder to say no!
After a trip to TK Maxx with my mum, I came home with two pretty much exactly the same bags. A similar style, one bright and one nude both would go with SO MUCH in my wardrobe and both were reduced, I fought people off them in the shop I was so excited.
Firstly is this beautiful corally pink colour bag. Both of these bags are from Nine West which are known for their good quality bags and shoes. I didn’t hesitate at picking these up after that.
Although the bag is small its got lots of pockets which I find is much handier with smaller bags, you can put your keys in one, phone and lipstick in the other, and purse in the largest one. At least then you know you’ve got a chance at finding everything in it!
Secondly is this stone coloured bag, very similar to the one above but not exactly the same. This one is longer and narrower in comparison to the square coral bag and is missing a pocket at the front.
Aside from that, the stone colour of this bag surely goes with literally anything you could own?? That was why it was such a hard choice in the store, I couldn’t leave without either one of them as my wardrobe for summer consists of coral and nude, it would have been wrong to leave with one and not the other.
I like that to straps also feel quite sturdy. They’re not as sturdy as my previously mentioned Michael Kors bag but I’m sure that’s reflected in the pricing. Besides these bags are so small that you couldn’t fit anything heavy enough into them to break the straps!
I also like that the straps are adjustable. It drives me mental when companies think we’re all the same height and width, I’m tall with boobs, i need looooooooooong straps so that I don’t look like I’m wearing it halfway up my back you know!
My only let down with Nine West bags is the BORING inside. I’m a huge fan of bag linings and after a quick assessment of the outside I’m straight onto the inside to check out the lining.
The plain beige colour on the inside was a big disappointment. I wasn’t expecting a rainbow of colour or a crazy geometric pattern…..but the material is also cheap and it does let them both down somewhat.
Needless to say i left with both bags after finding out that they were priced at less than £18! With deals like that you just cannot say no to TK Maxx can you.
I’ve had to restrain myself from going in there having acquired four bags from there recently, some were for my birthday presents but even so FOUR?! i need to be controlled!
Are you a fan of Nine West bags and shoes? Are you a bargain hunter in TK Maxx too?
I’m going to have to go in there again soon as there’s sure to be bargains in time for the festival and summer holiday season!
