Lovin the Bumpy Hide

12 Mar

Before I left London I fell in love with this gorgeous YSL bag below:

YSL Ostrich Hide Bag

I found it for sale on t’interweb (as my bestie calls it!) at a discount and thought it was my lucky day. The site looked professional so I decided to buy. However, when inputting my credit card details, I was taken to a page with Chinese symbols….this was the point at which I thought…er oh….is this going to be a fake?! I did not want a fake (not my bag, baby 🙂 ).

Luckily, without having to wait for it to arrive, I was contacted by the company to say the bag was out of stock  – what alternative bag did I want? I didn’t want an alternative, no way! It took me some time to get a refund, but it did eventually come – and I learned my lesson. If you find an exclusive designer bag online at a gobsmacking discount…don’t do it…no matter what they say, it will be a fake! And you’ll know it…. it’s like winning when you know you cheated.

Anyhow, I still love this bag and have a growing thing for all accessories made from Ostrich hide. So here’s a selection of bumpy leather goods for those who, like me, find it fun, fabulous and chic!

In fact, I’m thinking of designing a line of Ostrich hide bags…I’ll keep you posted!
