Black is the new black
New beginnings new start. We bought a house, finally, after what seemed like a struggle through major bidding wars. Partly down to an iniquitous dilly dallying estate agent and determined buyers like ourselves who were relentless in out bidding each other.
It is fair to say that after bidding almost 10pc above the asking price on our ideal home and losing it to the other buyers who mysteriously "matched" our offer every single time, we quickly became very smart if we were to stand any chance of winning this game. I can now reveal we are moving very soon after baby proofing the new home :-)
You can now imagine what the house is beginning to look like, sorting through our possessions, especially my bags. And then I couldn't help but peek online to see if I'd find something chic for summer 2014. All my girlfriends would attest to the fact that I do not own a black bag except for small clutches. So it was even surprising to me that I have taken a liking to these.
Have a look and tell me what you think.
