I had a lovely offer through my e-mail recently. Most offers from PR’s that I accept are centred around my children or gifts, but every so often, one comes along that I really can’t resist taking the opportunity to accept for myself.
I was given a document with an option to pick three items that I liked from in order of preference. I made a quick decision that this campaign was tailored just for me (ok don’t burst my bubble) and eagerly returned my choices to the PR.
I opened my pack to the feel of a lovely designer dust bag covering whatever contents there were inside. I was immediately impressed and impatient to see what lovely creation that I had been sent. I had been sent the lovely Kate Benjamin Black Leather Studded Duffel Bag (opens link in new window) and I knew I was in heaven.
I was surprised to see that all three of my choices were from the Kate Benjamin range, so I must have been destined to receive one of her fabulous designs.
Now down to the nitty gritty that all bag lovers want to know.
I have to say I was delighted to receive my first choice from the sheet, and was able to really appreciate the bag. The Kate Benjamin Black Leather Studded Duffel Bag retails for £175.00 and the attention to detail impresses.
The first thing that struck me was the wonderful smell that emanates from a new leather bag. The bag is a mixture of suede and leather and with the most exquisite gilt buttons, hoops and fastenings.
Can you tell I am completely besotted by this bag? Maybe this incredible feeling of elation at a lovely item is something that only an appreciator of bags can understand. I know that my sister in law, who is a handbag connoisseur is going to be green with envy when she spots it.
Now for the picture of my real, actual bag with its dust bag. I so love this. I’ve shown the inside lining which has a lovely shade of fuchsia and is beautifully finished throughout.
The body strap which is detachable makes it the prefect bag for me. When I am shopping or out with the boys, I like to have my hands free to carry other things.
The outer bag is 100% Leather and the gorgeous Inner is 100% Cotton. I can see I am going to get a lot of use out of this lovely, lovely piece of perfection.
Accessories Direct also have gorgeous jewellery, hats, purses, umbrellas, fascinators, slippers, gloves, wallets, scarves, gifts for all. I actually love this Linden French Multi Striped Bunny Rabbit, and I wish we had someone in the family with a child young enough to give it to.
