New In || Ted Baker POEBIE Leather Shopper Bag *GIFTED*

*OKAY you can close your mouth* no seriously, gifted doesn’t generally means sent by a company, so don’t be jealous or surprised, haha. This was a birthday present gifted to me by my mum. I did mean to do a birthday haul but instead thought of doing a separate review for each thing I got, that way I can have more content for the blog right? 

Since me and my mum we are handbag freaks then again who isn’t? She knew I wanted a nice designer bag for the longest time. And while on our trip to Italy at Gatwick airport I saw this beauty and I had to get it – Ted Baker Phoebie Leather Shopper Bag. Plus it was bit cheaper #joysofshoppingatdutyfree.

That’s the thing about getting you heart set on a certain something and not really weighing the pro’s and con’s.


It’s black, it’s sturdy, it’s GIANT, and hey it has the rose gold detailing. With a little edgy Floral bag, and the match-y match bag lining. An effortless-timeless-classic piece, which would dress up any dull outfit too – I’d say a total winner in my eyes.



Well here’s a bit disappointing thing about this bag, its a giant well, which will swallow anything you put in, without being found. Until you use that extra pouch it comes with, to store your keys and tiny important things. Though it’s a lovely bag to travel with, specially with the baby, as it can store a lot but I wish there was one tiny pocket to hold my keys and lip glosses 😉


It’s been a month, well not even a month since I got it, so I can’t say much about the long term durability, but its a well structured leather bag which looks and feel quite high society. Though I have my doubts with the thin straps and how the bag can get heavy with a few extra things, which can easily strain the straps. But I will surely keep you updated with the wear and abouts of this one.

    It retails for £149  (approx $229), and you can buy it from TedBaker website itself. Now I’m in a
    hunt for a nice brown bag, until I’m satisfied with my collection. I’d love your suggestions on

    which hand bag to go for next?
