Gorgeous Givenchy Arm Candy
I for one got sucked in with a Givenchy tote purchase (above) in last years Harrods winter sale and a worthy investment it has been so far. I was desperate for a black tote bag and armed with lots of birthday and xmas money (it was hard having literally no presents but Christmas is for kids.......), it has served me well over the past 12 months and will continue to do so for may more to come.
Last summer my youngest daughter was in a mild state of hysteria over another Givenchy, the Antigona tote in gold, which appeared to be exclusive to Harrods and with a price tag much bigger than any 21st birthday budget her two older sisters had been given. Thank goodness for sales and generous boyfriends (and parents of course), the tote was purchased and hidden away until her birthday in September and continues to be one of her most treasured items, which although gets used for work on a daily basis, still looks completely brand new. I'm sure she only uses it every day so that I don't get my mitt's on it, she needs to remember that every time she borrows my AH glitter clutch for her nights out, I mean fairs fair and all that!
Another piece of Givenchy arm candy that has been on my radar for months now is the Pandora tote above. I just love the quirky one hand held strap, one shoulder strap detail and the zips toughen it up to give a biker chick edge to a bag that in my opinion, still oozes pure class. So annoying how it is so hard to get a designer bag under £1,000 these days with this one coming in at a completely budget blowing £1090.00!
Just as lust worthy but with a much more affordable (£690) price tag, the mini pandora in grey is perfect for those who prefer a smaller bag.
I would buy this clutch in a heartbeat, so pretty and affordable at only £250. I love the delicate pink florals, perfect for dressing up a blush coloured dress for wedding season and they do the matching heels - simply divine!
