Fashion Maths – Bag or Outfit?

Here’s a little wishful thinking for you. Imagine you have been given £575 to spend on something new for your wardrobe (I know but we can dream) which would you go for?

The classic Mulberry Effie bag £575 from John Lewis

 

Or the complete Spring capsule wardrobe? Total capsule cost £574.09!

All clothes by Fenn Wright Manson at John Lewis – all currently reduced

Navy Slingback shoes from John Lewis were £95 now £66
Aubrey Falmer Leather Handheld Tote from John Lewis
Button cluster necklace from John Lewis
Suede pumps by Clarks from John Lewis

It’s a tricky choice isn’t it? Some of these pieces are great value, and there are plenty of reduced items around in the Spring sales so enjoy some virtual shopping or dreaming.

    No contest for me, Maria. I covet handbags!!! Rather go naked with a quality bag than cheap on clothing. Of course, very grateful I haven’t had to choose ‘either or’ yet. LOL

      And it is rather a gorgeous bag isn’t it Ruth. In my case I don’t want any bag it has to be the bag although I thought the tote in the collection was a great bargain, but I could see myself using that bag for many years to come, and of course a bag doesn’t care how much weight you gain or loose!

    And I have to say the bag is much much more exciting!

      Yes – only another year and 4 months until August 2013 then I may have to have it as a birthday present!

    No contest – it has to be the bag. One fabulous bag puts a [slightly guilty] smile on your face. Your life is in your bag – it deserves to be in something special…..

      Yes what a great way to look at it. I can see the justification with Him indoors “My life is surely worth more than a £10 plastic bag isn’t it?”
