I love Clarks shoes, it's hard to get decent leather shoes that are well made these days but Clarks still do them! Ok, so you pay alittle more for them but I think if you want a shoe to last and fit you well then it's worth paying extra for!! You can get some fab bargains in their sales also!!
A few months back I bought a slightly different design in a tobacco colour. They reminded me of the old Clarks school shoes we used to have in the 70's - you know with the 'T' bar!! Well these didn't have the 'T' but were similar otherwise!!! They are such comfortable shoes and the leather is a really nice quality.
I seem to have a bit of a thing for leather!! I also love leather bags - when I was in the US a few years back my ex bought my a lovely 'Lucky Brand' bag, simple style but lovely soft leather. I'm still using it!! I also treated myself to a green patent leather Coach bag. It was expensive but I got it in the Coach Outlet so much cheaper than it should have been!
Since then TK Maxx have been my favorite place for leather bags. They get some lovely ones in at really decent prices especially if they have been reduced again in the sale!! I've been quite lucky and been there at the right time to snap up a few beauties!!
Here is the first on that I picked upa few months back
Then I saw this larger one that would be great for hand luggage or an overnight bag (haven't used it yet!!)
So last week when I went in, armed with my Christmas money, I saw this satchel style bag which had been reduced down to a silly price. I've been wanting a satchel bag for a while now so was thrilled to find this one!!! I snapped it up and added it to my collection!!
I have a few more smaller leather bags as well!! Think I'd better stop looking at bags for a while (few years!!!) and use what I have!!
I'm sure I'm not alone in my love of good quality shoes and bags!!
