There have been many an opportunity when being classed as a 'Student' has come in handy and worked out to my advantage, especially when on a student budget. The 'Student Discounts' are the one perk I will definately miss once I have graduated, so I plan to make the most of it :) well thats my excuse anyway!
I have been eyeing up handbags way way way over my budget, just lusting, not actually planning on buying :) Its become quite an obsession lately, bags and shoes have become my weaknesses. However, with my new found knowledge from devouring countless designer collection I have become quite good at finding more affordable 'look-a-likes'.
Needing...well ok not needing but in mood a new bag for Uni I decided to pop into a few shops on my walk home last week. I was strolling past Oasis, a shop I don't tend to go in normally but was hooked in by 'Students get 20% off' Oooh yes please. Does anyone else usually find Oasis a little overpriced? Straight over to the bags I see this to die for black bag, perfect for all my needs:
Lots of pockets for things to get lost in ( I love Marry Poppins bags :) ) ✓ Check
Big enough to fit an A4 lined pad ✓ Check
Comfy strap ✓ Check
Goes with most outfits ✓ Check
Affordable ✓ check
And with my 20% discount the Liverpool Street bag orgionally £35 cost me £28 :) I couldn't have been happier. Whats even better is how slightly similar it is to the Channel executive tote bag I had been pining over! It may not be the real thing but i'm channelling my inner chanel :)
Have you been lusting over any 'out of your budget' items recently? Have you found any amazing affordable options? I love to hear from all you savvy shoppers!
