Fashion bag workout - the London sales cont'd....

This last weekend I hit the shops with my mum as it's her last weekend before she goes back home to Hong Kong : (

I wasn't really looking (isn't that always the case?) for anything cos I have only got a few things in the sales - but haven't gone mad on it because I've reached a point in my wardrobe where I don't need another little black dress or crisp white shirt. So I'd been wanting a pair of strappy gold heels to dress up an evening outfit for a while and when the Jan sales first opened I scored these ones from Monsoon - they are not too high, but high enough to feel feminine and are so comfy! £25 too! Anyways, this last weekend I found this leather gold clutch bag in Dorothy Perkins for a mere £10! I thought they go well together.

Next up, when it came out last year I remember, I lusted after the Longchamp dome satchel legende but it was way too pricey at retail and even on sale still out of my range. Lo and behold Debenham's Blue cross sale!

This bag is from Modalu - a high street brand which is still pricey I think - but it really is the closest I will ever come to being able to afford a great high quality bag with beautiful soft skin leather and a great bowling bag shape. I love how it crumples in the bottom left corner in the second pic. Ever since I started noticing Modalu in the shops a few seasons ago I've wanted to try one of their bags - cos I just love the soft leather. This IMO was a good staple buy cos it was 50% off, £85 sale price, but a good investment and a good copy of the Longchamp one!

Have any of you tried a Modalu bag - or indeed any fab bargains you got during the sales?
