Oh my, would you just take a look at that! Since I discovered Vivienne Westwood around the age of 13 I have always longed for a purse by the lady herself and last week I finally caved. I am currently selling my Polaroid camera and some film on eBay and decided to spend the money on this gem. Unfortunately I am an impatient human being and ended up just buying it anyway but I intend to replace the cash come the end of the auction which makes this purchase totally justifiable right? 

I chose the Saffiano design as it is timelessly beautiful with its simple textured leather finish and striking gold signature orb. The quality of this item is faultless and I cannot find a single imperfection. 
Time to get down to the nitty gritty, the Saffiano black 1032 purse is made from Italian textured leather and has a soft leather interior with a stud fastening,  space for 8 cards, a full length zip closing coin compartment and note/receipt slots. Perfect for a woman like me that has far too many store cards and receipts falling out of everywhere. I personally couldn't ask for anything more from a purse and know for certain this purse will be gracing my handbag for years to come. I have never owned designer purse before but the quality compared to your average high-street purse is almost remarkable, I have never really been one for real leather but this textured italian leather really is something special. Being the proud little Brit that I am I always opt for a British designer when and where possible when it comes to purchasing any high-end item. There's something about buying an item designed by someone on the same little slice of land as you that really pleases me for some strange reason. 

You can purchase the Saffiano Purse here from Vivienne Westwood website for £125 or from any Vivienne Westwood store. Just so you know, the image and description on the site varies slightly to the version I own despite ordering it from the website itself. The website shows the interior of the purse to have a clear window to hold a photo card. I fortunately prefer the purse without the clear window but please take this into consideration before purchasing or thinking i'm a mentalist linking the wrong purse.
