Can’t believe less than 8 days to go until Christmas and I still have about 7 presents to buy. The problem with Christmas shopping is the temptation to find things for yourself that you like and get a little side-tracked. Not good!! You can imagine that this is exactly what happened to me. I was organised with a list and ideas for present shopping, The problem was, that my name wasn’t written down and I kept being tempted. So what did I buy myself and was it worth it?
In an antique store in Ellerslie I found a sparkly gold 1960’s clutch purse made from Stirling Mesh. It was so shiny and pretty; with satin lining, in excellent condition, was the perfect size and even had a dainty chain-strap. I had recently decided that I wanted to start collecting clutch purses so this was a good reason to buy another. It didn’t help that the week before I had ventured into Gucci to look for a present for a my friend (on the first day of sale) and bought myself, yes you guessed it – a Clutch with the most beautiful flora print on the outside, that will brighten any outfit on a lovely summer’s day. I wonder if Santa might bring me another Clutch for Christmas?
