So much for a more organised week, it's been very hectic so far and I've fallen behind with everything. I'm aiming to catch up tomorrow, but massive apologies for neglecting you all and my complete lack of blog commenting (I've missed reading what you're up to, so will get up to date this weekend). Anyways, I promised 'proper' photos of my SkinnyDip Unicorn Tears bag £28 and the reason I'm posting today, is because it's back in stock. Yes, go, go, go! It went quickly last time, so if you really want it, then don't dally.
So you'll maybe recall I had to take two lots of photos of this bag and I'll admit I'm still not 100% satisfied with how they turned out, but that's the way of it sometimes. When I took them, it was extremely sunny and either created massive shadows in the light or gloomy, dullness in the shade. However, they aren't too bad and I picked out the best ones for you. You'll just have to trust me that it looks even prettier in the flesh. We also have some random unicorns modelling...Tokidoki above and My Little Pony's Rarity below.
Ok, onto the bag and as someone who had lusted after the Moschino/McDonalds milkshake one, I was over the moon that the SkinnyDip design was such a similar shape (at a much more affordable price) and also included details like the straw. Even better that it was sparkly and mentioned unicorns (please note, none were harmed in the making of this bag, they only cry happy, rainbow tears anyway...unlike my snivelling and blubbering during the final ever episode of The Mentalist tonight, though they were happy tears too). I wonder what happens when one drinks unicorn tears? Something awesome, I'm sure. Tasting tears always makes me think of watching Batman when I was wee and he'd do that to decipher if
As you can see, the outside is mainly made from a scaly holographic material (which really twinkles in the light), with bold 'unicorn tears' written in pink with a large rainbow on the front. It's fully lined, zips around the widest part and comes with a long chain strap. Obviously the shape means it stands by itself very well and items inside feel very 'protected'. I definitely expected an overall smaller shape, the size immediately struck me when I opened it. It's really unusual and unique in my collection, even when compared to my other unicorn themed handbags. You can never have too many right? Here's some of my clutches below (I think I have another 3? Irregular Choice unicorn bags not shown here). From left, the pink one is by The Whitepepper, the black and pink faces are New Look (all from last year) and the glitter one is ASOS and since sold out.
Here were my three SkinnyDip bags (as you know I bought the milk carton last week). That one has sold out since my post, but the popcorn and ice-cream (£25 each) have come back in stock this week if you are interested. You can see better photos of all four in that post from last week.
Then today I added a fifth member to the SkinnyDip family, this cat bag £35. It was just restocked and I'd had my eye on it before it sold out, so jumped this time. I got next day delivery, so it should arrive tomorrow (or today, whatever ridiculous hour this is). It's a little different to my others (not food related) and perhaps not quite so kitsch, but very chic. I have an old patent cat face one I got on eBay from China years ago, but this one will be much better quality I'm sure. Just the mermaid shell one to go! What do you think, do you like these bags?
