Advantages: good size, stylish, sturdy
Disadvantages: none - although it does look a little bit plasticky....
For my birthday last year November I went away with my sister and 2 good friends to Amsterdam as a little weekend break. My best friend was absolutely lovely and surprised me with a whole bag of presents so I was mega excited as I hadn't received so many birthday gifts in a long time! (When you have kids they get all the presents really!) She bought me a MAC Gift card, a pair of shoes, Dot by Marc Jacobs perfume and this Ted Baker makeup bag. I also have a Ted Baker Bowtote bag so this was a nice collection to my Ted Baker goodies!
I have this bag in gold with a black glitter bow which is a really nice, and glamorous look. It is made from PVC so it does look a bit plasticky, but the caligraphy of Ted Baker along the bottom makes it look more elegant so it doesn't look cheap and tacky. The Bow is really sturdy, and whilst it can look flimsy it has stayed in place the last 6 months and hasn't lost it's glitter so it is really good quality.
The bag is quite sturdy, and even when empty it retains it's shape. This is quite good as in my luggage it doesn't get squashed and squished sits perfectly upright when full/empty on my chest of drawers at home! Personally I don't actually use this for makeup - even though it is the perfect size for it - as I don't have that much and use my little brown cosmetic purse from bloomingdales for this. I use this bag to store my jewelry in as I have endless necklaces, bracelets, rings, bangles etc! They all fit in her really well and compactly and looks lovely. The bag is a really good size, a bit too big to take out as a clutch bag, but larger than the size of your average pencil case so to speak.
Overall I really love this little bag and its a stylish travel bag which would make a lovely gift to any lady without breaking the bank too much. My best friend works in House of Fraser so I know she got it on some kind of discount, but I think at full RRP it costs roughly £22. (Yes I am one of those people who researches how much someone spent on my gift!) It is a bit more expensive than your bog standard makeup/wash bag but for the name, the quality and the look I do think its worth it and no doubt I'd pay this price myself for it. I'd definitely recommend it and give it 5 stars!
