Canaletto Embossed Dome Shoulder Bag
Advantages: Perfet size. Looks great. Good quality. Not expensive.
Disadvantages: Slow delivery... (Debenhams). None other!
I always go throug stages of having a certain bag for a while. I dont match my bag with my outfit or anything, I just use the same bag for a while and then get bored of it and change it. So my old bag was very summery. It was white with flowers on it and was rather large. Perfect for going to the beach and having to carry loads of stuff. But now that its getting a bit chillier and I've been having to wear my small coat a few times, I thought I need a bag that goes more with my coat.
So I was at work one day and was a bit bored because I had done everything I needed to do so I was surfing the internet. I just look at clothes and things like that. I was on the Debenhams website and thought I'd have a look to see if they have any bags suitable. Debenhams is quite reasonable, they have a huge range of stuff. Cheap to expensive! So I went to the 'bags' catagory. I ticked off 'black'. Because I wanted something a bit plain and I really wanted a black bag for a change. I still wanted something big so I could fit plenty in to it, but not as big as my summery bag.
There were quite a few pages of black bags, this one though was on one of the first pages. It stood out to me because it seemed like a good size and wasn't too plain. I liked how it looked like it had 'shape' to it. I always make the mistake of buying a bag without shape and then regret it. I looked at the dimensions and thought it was a good size. I also liked how the handles weren't too short, because I like to put mine on my shoulder. What I also noticed was howit had a 'love heart' on it. I liked that because I thought it was a nice feminie touch. The quality is great.
So a few days later on pay day I bought this bag. It was £25 and the delivery was £3.99 standard! I hate paying delivery when I'm only buying one item but what can I do! There isn't a Debenhmas close by so I dont have much choice. The delivery was really slow. I bought it on the Wednesday and it didnt come until the following Thursday. I think it should be a free delivery service if its going to take so long. I waited for it every singe day.
So when it FINALLY came, I opened the Debenhams packaging and then there was another plastic packaging. It also had tissue paper around some of it. My first thoughts were 'great'. I thought it was absolutely the perfect size. It fits quite a lot in. More than you would think. I have an umbrella, large purse, tick tacs, pens, head ache tablets and a few more bits. There's space for me to put my dinner in it everyday as well.
Inside it has a lining. It has a zippy pocket and a phone space. Not that I use it. But the zippy pocket comes in handy for small bits and bobs. The main fastening is a zip fastening. Its made out of 100% polyurethane. The dimensions are HWD: 11 x 15.6 x 4.6". It has embossed detail all over. The bag looks great and I think its my favourite bag so far! I recommend this bag to anyone who just wants a standard bag that isn't too patterny.
***I've just noticed this bag is now on sale for £20. Thats £5 off***
Summary: A great quality handbag.
