My lovely Adelphi purse :-)

So what do we have here! It seems I got myself another filofax..... but before you roll your eyes in exasperation clap your hands excitedly I should admit one small detail. This filofax is not quite the filofax you expect...... Why?? Because it is actually a purse!!

Oh yes, this little beauty does not in fact count as a March treat. After all as far as I am concerned I really, really needed it. This my friends, is functional! Although of course it has to look good... Why bother otherwise? I finally decided that I had enough of my oh so boring black purse which I could never find in my handbag. That won't be an issue now though as this is definitely a stunner!

Here are some pics.......


Another lovely box for storing inserts.

I really love the Adelphi leather and the striking diamond pattern in magenta.

There are so many compartments for bills, cards and coins.

Back view showing that the embossed diamond pattern continues.

Now I got this lovely purse on City Organiser. I had been stalking it for weeks and then when I was finally ready to buy, it had disappeared off the website :-( As I am not the kind of girl who gives up easily, I sent them an email and.......... I got a reply saying they had one more left! And that it was standard procedure for them to remove items from the website if there was only one remaining. So I got what I wanted as usual.And of course I am absolutely delighted.

Disclaimer (the following individuals have enabled me in this purchase).........
Laurie, for showing her lovely Finsbury wallet here. This of course made me want one so much.......
Jotje, for mentioning the wonders of City Organiser for reduced prices on filofaxes and accessories. You have created a monster! haha.
Saffy, who is as naughty as Jotje and sends me emails with gems such as 'Do you know the Deco is almost half price on this site?' Arrrgh....... and I cannot have any more treats this month.......

Or can I?? Muahahahahaha.........

Sorry I got a bit carried away there. Anyways do you like my new purse?  And please don't forget to enter the Fabulous Giveaway with CSN stores if you are from the UK/US or Canada.

Enjoy your day!

Very nice! There's nothing like a little spring treat. =)

Jotje said...

Love it! With all those compartments in looks so organised. Makes my Mini Finsbury feel all clumsy and inadequate LOL
(P.S. Glad I was able to help! ... ;-))

Looks great, you just need to put some Philofaxy currency in it now and a Philofaxy loyalty card

Sabine said...

It is a gorgeous purse, made me want to get a new one too. Thank you for your upbeat post, CP, again you've made my day a little brighter :)

Saffy said...

OOoohhh, that is lovely. The Filofax website does not do it justice. Hhmmmm, will have to have a closer inspection at the London meet up and in the Neal Street store. Enabler, me? Never, he, he. Just like to share :-)

Laurie said...

I love your new purse!! What a gorgeous color! And as always, I'm more than happy to enable a fellow Philofaxer. ;D

Alison Reeves said...

She is a real beauty - I think you must have got the last one as I can't find them on their website! I love these large purses - I've had one of a different make for the last few months and really love it. I reckon she will just look better with use! Am I right in thinking she matches your Adelphi filofax?

Thanks everyone! I really like it too :-)
Alison I did get the last one. Sorry. My adephi filofax is purple so they coordinate. I had really liked the magenta colour but I thought it was too bright for my work filofax and that the damson (purple) would be more appropriate.

To the 3 enablers, Jotje, Saffy, Laurie, I love the city organiser website. Laurie I am now drooling over your ultraviolet Domino!

Kanalt, Tanvi, Sabine everytime I look at it I smile as it is such a happy colour. I can feel spring in the air although it is cold; the last few days have been beautiful in the UK!

Steve, as much as I like Philofaxy, real currency is what gets me those filofax treats so more of the real stuff please :-)

I had no idea that Filofax made purses! It's so lovely!

I love it! It screams Caribbean Princess-- AND matches your site ;) It seems it's give-yourself-a-gift time... Mine came today also! Let us know how you like it in terms of functionality!

Thanks Leia. It is very nice. I really like it.
AudsAlley I think I would like EVERY day to be a gift day. Alas I can't afford it though. Your new Malden is beautiful.
