Can you remember buying your first leather handbag?
I can, well my first decent one anyway. I brought it with my 1st full time pay check, and I still had to use lay buy. In today's terms on what I generally spend on handbags it was pretty up there, and that was over 20 years ago!
It was a brown leather tote bag from Max. With a seam and stitching down the centre. I still have it, and I still love it. Do I love it because it was my first purchase, or because it reminds me of a time in my life?! Who knows, but it is very sentimental to me.
It is very well worn, but that only adds to its beauty. I have it tucked away in my wardrobe, and it gets to have an outing every now and then, and will always remind me of who I was, where I have come from, and the road that I have traveled. Who knew that I would be designing my own….
