Holt Renfrew - The Designer Sale

I received an email from Holt Renfrew informing me of a sale. My first thought was what new bag could I get. I decided to take a detour on my way home to check out the bags at the store.  Some women love shoes - not me. I love bags. I wandered through the store to the bag section. The bags that were on sale were on tables. There were some nice bags, but nothing that really interested me. I need a bag that can hold all of the items I carry in purse, which is a lot. There were Chloe bags, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Coach a long with many other designers. Whenever I saw an ad for a Chloe bag in a magazine my mouth would drop. The bags are so beautiful. Even on sale the bag was out of my price range. I cannot afford to pay $1000 for a bag unless I won the lottery.

Save up to 40% at the Holt Renfrew Designer sale on from May 26th to June 19th on selected men's and women's spring designer fashions and accessories.

Coach Lucky Keyfob

Winners has become my second home. During the week I will go to the store on my break or lunch to browse. On the weekends, I can spend hours walking around the store. They carry designer items at low prices. Recently, I was in the jewellery section when I found a Coach keyfob. It was priced at $19.99, regular $38.00. I asked the salesperson if they had anymore. She said that they were very popular at that it was the last one.

Winners receives items several times a week. If you see something and are not sure if you should buy it, then you may have made a big mistake. You can always put the item on hold. A couple of weeks ago I saw a Coach wristlet, but I decided not to get it. I went back a couple of days later and it was gone.

Eco-friendly lunch bag

I find myself carrying at least two bags with me to work - my purse and another bag to carry everything else that cannot fit in my purse. The look of the other bag is just as important as my purse. For me the bag I am carrying is an important accessory. On Saturday I found this bag during the Green Toronto Festival. It was only $7.00. It will make a great lunch bag for the summer.

The Bag Lady

I started the new year with the promise to myself that I would not buy anymore handbags. I am known as "the baglady". I have more bags than one person should have in every shape, size and colour. I am a shopaholic and I love handbags. Unfortunately, the temptation is too great. My favourite bags of the moment are from cha cha.
