So last Friday I braved the summer sun and headed in to the City Centre for the Sample Sale at Label PR in the Northern Quarter. Apparently this was their first ever Sample Sale and they'd managed to bring in Lavish Alice, Rock N Rose, South Beach & La Moda with up to 90% off. As soon as I heard about it, I was there!
I wandered through the Northern Quarter searching for the place, it isn't the easiest to find as the street it's on is split in two, I walked past the smouldering shell of a building that used to be Paul's Hair World too, the smell of burnt wigs and bleach still lingered in the air. When I eventually found the place, I was immediately drawn to this jet black, gold studded, leathered skeleton hand clutch bag with a gold chain.
I'd seen this bag somewhere before, where was it? Ah yes, it was on the La Moda website. I remember being desperate to buy it but a lack of funds prevented me clicking 'Add to Cart' on that occasion. It was like fate had brought these two star-crossed lovers, me and the bag, together once more.
I love clutch bags but tend to find the ones that really catch the eye don't have a chain to hang over your shoulders. I know it's called a clutch bag, but there's only so much clutching one can do so it's nice to have the option to sling it over the shoulder, is that just me? Besides, I'm terrible at holding things in my hand. If my iPhone didn't make such a loud cracking sound when it hit the floor I'd have lost five of the things by now!
Anyways, what with the edgy looking design, creepy-cool skeleton hands and the ever important chain attached this bag screamed "BUY ME NOW". And who was I to resist? It was almost like the cashier could read my mind, she knew I was thinking: "This bag is £10??!!"
I handed over the dough, hurtled home and had a good roll around on the bed with my new bag. It was love!
A big thanks to Stacey for the heads up on the sale, I can't wait to attend more of these Sample Sales in Manchester. Apparently these sales pop up every other week around here. Oh, I do heart Manchester ♥
