So on the same trip to Australia where I discovered the cotton rice bags (click her to go to post) I was asked by my lovely aunt upon my leaving in the form of typical Sri Lanka generosity what I would like to take home with me, I obviously polietly said I didn't need anything but of course that was brushed aside. On arrival I had fallen for a vanity bag my aunt had tucked away in her fabulous walk in closet (I would have taken that if I could have!!!) and I said to my aunt that if she didn't use it and wasn't attached to it that actually that was what I would like. A little confused but thrilled to give me something I clearly had formed an attachment to my aunt gave it too me.
The bag is quilted inside with a wipe clean material and also had some removable cardboard inserts which kept it rigid whilst in its life as a vanity/makeup bag but these were quickly removed and now I have myself a fabulous, huge Miss Marple esque bag! It is a much loved addition to my wardrobe and accessories collection and in the style of many of the designer bags I have named it after my aunt.
