: BLUE VELVET :
There are always some fashion pieces you aren't to sure you're cool enough for, or maybe you're heading into the mum zone despite not having any children of your own; I, my friends, have entered that stage and have recently made 2 purchases that have in equal parts made me feel cool and maybe that I could be a cool mum in the future. Enter the first purchase: the backpack.
At 14 I wasn't seen with any other bag but my rucksack. A black Converse one with Tipex markings and a Mushu badge from Mulan because 'gah I'm so alternative and edgy'/ The straps were so low the bag bounced off my bum everywhere I walked and it held nothing major but I was so scene you guys it just had to be a rucksack!
But now they're in again and I'm not 14 so it's only right I move with the times and get something a little more grown up and that does not scream school kid but I have my life together, I like fashion, and I'm attempting to pull it off.
It's actually the perfect size; all that I need fits in it and it has pockets inside and out. Also, did you see the pom pom? IT'S SO FLUFFY! And one of the best bits; it was a bargain- £10 from Primark. I've found that I haven't gone into Primark for a long time. Since moving my newest town to do any proper shopping is a 40 minute drive away so we don't go as often as when we lived in London. Plus being 5ft 10" I seriously struggle with some of Primarks sizing, but every now and then there are some hidden gems and for me this one is it.
