Bargain Bulldog Handbag

Bulldog Bag - Ebay

If you know me well, you'll know I love a quirky bag. So, when I spotted this gorgeous Bulldog creation on Ebay I couldn't resist purchasing it. I'd spied it on one of VIPXO's Ebay Wishlist posts and immediately had to have it. Why? Number one - it's animal-shaped, number two - it's so darn cute, and number three - it's very Marc Jacobs-esque (by which I mean, a blatant copy of)

French bulldogs are everywhere at the minute, and this cutie with heart-shaped eyes was simply too adorable not to pass up. Although I own a lot of bags, I don't have very many black ones, and I always find myself looking for black handbags when A/W arrives, so this was most definitely a sensible buy, in my humble opinion. The best thing about it has got to be the fact it was ridiculously cheap - I'm talking cheaper than Primark prices here. With postage it comes in at just under a tenner which I personally think is an absolute steal. It's from a seller in Hong Kong, so it does take a little while to deliver, but when it arrived it was completely worth the wait. 

I was really surprised at the quality of this bag - the PU leather is beautifully soft and the gold hardware really sets the piece off. I love all things gold so this definitely gets my seal of approval. The straps are adjustable and detachable, if you want to turn your bag into a clutch. It has a cute little nifty pocket at the back which is ideal for storing old receipts and bits and bobs, as well as the usual zipped compartment/mobile phone sections inside. The lining is a bit of a 'bleh' orange colour but I think I can live with that, for just how cute this bag is. It's also a pretty decent size, as you can see in the Ebay seller's images. 

Overall I am so happy with this bag and I can see me wearing it a lot over the Autumn/Winter season. 

What do you think to my bargainous bulldog handbag? Let me know!
