The Ted Baker Marilyn purse certainly ticks all the boxes on my list. Black patent leather is even better than regular leather in my books & gives the purse such a luxurious feel. I love the yellow gold hardware & the bow engraved with the Ted Baker logo is a gorgeous finishing touch. I think it's the perfect size & is very slim. It fits in my handbag so much better than my old one & feels much lighter too. On the back is a slot which I use for easy access to my bus & train tickets. The interior looks even more sophisticated with high quality real leather adorning the slots & coin pocket in the middle. On either side are two long slots which I store my notes & coupons in. Each side also has four card slots & these are very tight so you can only fit one or two cards in them. When I switched all my cards over I decided to just keep the most important ones. The cards I reach for most often are my debit, credit, Nectar, Boots & Superdrug cards so they're all on one side. On the other side I keep my driving licence, national insurance, library, gym, Space.NK and Holland & Barrett cards. There is a lot less room in this purse but it encourages me to carry less rubbish around which can only be a good thing! The coin section is still a decent size & has a lovely monochrome floral lining.
I couldn't be any happier with my new Ted Baker purse! It's everything I could've hoped for & more. I expect I'll be keeping this one around even longer than my River Island purse. It's such a classic piece & goes with absolutely everything. The quality is exceptional & yet it's fairly affordable for a luxury leather product. A designer purse is always a worthy investment & a fab way of treating yourself if you can't quite stretch to a new handbag. The Ted Baker accessories range hits the perfect balance between girly & chic. I also have a beautiful Ted Baker pencil case but I'd love to buy a few more of their pieces. I'm especially fond of the makeup bags & iPad cases! All of the items have such a cute aesthetic. Are you a fan of Ted Baker accessories?
