bucket bag bargain

Like i mentioned in a previous post, I recently purchased these babies FINALLY and I am just so god damn happy that I finally caved and got them with money i should have been saving... but nonetheless, I love them, and I'll get a lot of wear out of them for sure. My feet are a size 8 which is quite big for a girl and I always worry about flats making my feet look huge, but these really don't at all. My feet usually look a lot smaller then they are anyway, but I still get a bit paranoid about them looking stupidly big.

My Alexander Wang fake that i got off of eBay has broken. Already. The zips broke about 2 weeks ago, and I had to hold it together with safety pins which was extremely annoying as getting in and out of the bag would involve undoing every safety pin, only having to do them back up again moments later so that all of the crap in my bag wouldn't fall on the floor. Basically, I hate the bag, and wasted £30.
So I was looking through a charity shop like I do most days, and I rarely ever look at the bag sections any more as the charity shops around where I live usually have really bad bags, or all of my friends have bought all of the nice ones, leaving me to only see the bad ones. Anyway, I happened to glance up at the bag shelf in one particular charity shop and could not believe what I was looking at; a real Estée Lauder bucket bag. I literally flew across the shop and grabbed it off of the shelf finding that it was only £5.99!!
The only annoying thing with the bag is that the leather draw string type things that hold the bag closed don't actually do that at all. There aren't any pockets inside either, but to be honest, I don't actually care because it's real Estée Lauder for £5.99.
