Westfield Shopping Haul (Part 2) - Kate Spade Bag and Gilly Hicks

I love shopping at the sale season! So many stores offering such enticing discounts. I have been wanting to get a nice designer yet affordable black leather bag, where else have more options than Westfield shopping centre? 

I headed to Michael Kors, Guess, Coach and quite a few other stores, but in the end I came across this beauty from Kate Spade. I think Kate Spade is less known in the UK and I think they only have a couple of boutiques including the one opened last year on Oxford Street? Let me know if I'm wrong though. 

The bag was originally sold for over £300 but was on sale for about £200. The store was running a further reduction with extra 20% off, so I got it for £175. What a bargain! 

It is a very structured (which I like) in a patterned patent leather. It was designed specifically for people to hold their technical stuff - it has an ipad slot inside, which comes quite handle if you carry it around. The logo is quite subtle with a little golden heart and the brand in grey. You will definitely not find yourself walking on the street surrounded by people wearing the same logo-ed bag such as the golden MK. Haha!

I just think it's so elegant and classy. Definitely a wardrobe stable for me!

I also stumbled upon this store, Gilly Hicks, who happened to be running a semi-annual sale in store. All bras in this store are sold at £ 14.50. They have such amazing quality as well. Had to bag myself a set, plus who doesn't need some new underwear? 

I also have to mention the unique decor of the Gilly Hicks store. It was like a secret garden, with lots of individual rooms. And I love the scent too!
