A New Look bag of the season for £19.99

I’ve looked at the Whistles verity backpack (£295) on many occasions but even with the pretty impressive mental gymnastic skills that I possess when it comes to justifying purchases, I still can’t make it add up – either literally or metaphorically.

But the silver formal backpack from New Look (£19.99) on the other hand, is a completely different matter. For something that isn’t go to be an investment purchase of one’s life, £20 seems a much more agreeable amount to pay. Plus the thought of saving £275.01 (not that one would have ever spent that amount in the first place) leaves one feeling perfectly justified in making another purchase…. or two.

    Love that! I have gone off whistles – lost their USP and priced we mere mortals out of the market. Hoping there will be a reality check soon…..Hx

    Have avoided the backpack look so far – don't tempt me! For that price I'd rather buy a classic style bag. Am not sure about silver though. If you get it, I'll be interested to see how you style it!
