"Paul's Boutique Padlock Bag"

I'd honestly never heard of Pauls Boutique bags until i read an article that mentioned Cher lloyd had one of them, aswell as there bein a picture of her with it. I thought the name was interesting and the bag looked gorgeous and really unique so i had a look online and saw that they were mega expensive! I was skint at the time and although would of loved to buy one, food and bills are more important than a handbag!

I'd totally forgotten about the bag until i was shopping online at Asos, after recieving some Christmas money, and saw that they sold a huge range of them. They vary alot in prices, the highest i saw was a whopping £99! There's so many different styles to choose from and i ended up with gorgeous pink Padlock bag, as it was girly, unique and looked to be a decent size.

My Paul's Boutique bag was £65.00, not including delivery. Yes this a HUGE amount of money to me to be spending on a bag, as i usually would spend that per month on food and essentials, but because i had the money spare it was my christmas present to myself!

The fact that i got this bag has irony written allover it. I'm classy in style and usually opt for a nice smart, black shoulder bag or a plain totebag, but because it was cute (although admittedly chavvy), i thought i'd give it a chance. It certianly draws alot of looks from people as it can't be missed - it's bright pink! I'd describe it as bein a larger than usual bag, the measurements are:

Height: 25cm
Length: 42cm

It has a kind of plastic look to it, it's neon pink allover with a chunky gold padlock (this had pauls boutique written above it in lovely gold writing, clear for all to see), gold detailing on the straps and gold studs holding the handles etc into place and a cute golden pandora like keyring chain with kitsch like charms on it that are really cute and make the bag what it is. On the front it has a cute round badge in a light shade of pink which has 'pauls boutique' written inside in thick letters surrounded by stars, also white. Either side of the badge is a yellow and pink diamond, and on one of the straps is a cute golden key. There's plenty of detailing and as said before the main advantage of the bag is that it's unique and i doubt there'd be a huge amount of other girls with this excact bag.

The fact that the handles are too small to be a shoulder bag is a let down, as i personally find it easier to sling a bag over my shoulder than carry it. I usually put it over my forearm or just hold it casually.

It has a sort of leathery feel to it and is nice and silky soft inside, with a cute leapord print colour that majorly clashes with the pink on the outside but is still really cute. There's a couple of different compartments which can hold keys, a smallish purse and a passport etc. The bag can hold plenty of books and seems to be able to hold alot of weight well.

Overall this bag is ideal for the girly girls who like to stand out from the crowd. I'm not the typical girl who's into pink but i still love it, even though it clashes with alot of outfits it still works and is a handy bag due to the size.

I'm able to clean it easily with baby wipes when it gets mud etc on it and it feels decent quality. I won't lie and say it's the best bag ever as i'm sure there are similar/nicer products for a slightly cheaper price, but you'll never be able to buy something for cheaper that's the excact same as this unless it's a copy.

    I've 'never heard of Pauls Boutique bags' before now either. It's a great bag but pity that 'the handles are too small to be a shoulder bag' as i prefer this too. Smashing review xXxXx
