Last year I passed through a ‘coming of age‘ milestone. The purchase of an ‘investment piece’ bag. I say ‘investment piece’ because that has been my justification to my boyfriend and parents, who quite frankly just aren’t buying my reasoning behind my somewhat extravagant purchase. But you know we all need a treat from time to time and my treat in question? A Sophie Hulme Tote Bag. I’ll save the spiel for the video, but it was one of those ‘can’t stop thinking about it/I’ll happily eat cold baked beans from a tin for the rest of my life if it can be mine’ situations. It’s been surgically attached to my arm for a few months now so I thought it was about time I showed you round; oyster cards, neurofen-stash, feminine products and all. You ready for the grand tour?

    Sigh, my bag is so tiny and I don’t have half the stuff you have in. I might ask for a bigger, more sophisticated bag for my birthday.

  • Jessica Rose

    Yurbuds are fantastic for small ears and are actually designed for women. Super comfortable if you can get your hands on some :) I recently bought an Audrey Brooke Emma Saffiano Double Zip Satchel. It has a similar style with the gold hardware and I agree that these two bags are timeless. My husband couldn’t believe what I spent on it (though not as much as yours), but definitely an investment piece.

    Just bought the bag for $877 (US dollars) through (It is being mailed from London to New York, so excited!) Not sure if the bag on Net-a-porter was slightly different. But I saved some money which is a plus in my book!
