Could This Be Bag Karma?

My first option (above).
All photos from ebay: My second option.
'Is this bad karma getting me back for yesterdays dig at the arrogant ill mannered woman. Then again she completely deserved it, so...' the first thought that rushed through my baffled mind as the bottom of my bag suddenly caved in. Out spilled the following contents: keys, purse, books, buttons (I collect them from various junk shops etc) bracelets, mp3,glasses,notebook's, pens,mobile(why I have a mobile is so very beyond me, as I never ever have credit. Ever) tissues (have come to accept colds are just a big chunk of my DNA, I hardly even complain about my sore eyes, blocked up nose and painful throat).
Anyways for some reason I felt highly embarrassed about the contents of my bag being on show and exposed, like its some kind of 'top secret' I mean there were no objects in my bag that are shameful, yet I could feel my face on fire and slowly turning bright red with humiliation.How very ridiculous of me right? However despite all my best efforts I could not for the life of me control the strong feeling of sheer embarrassment...

OK so getting more to the point I'm left in this dilemma, as believe it or not I'm not one for massive consumption (It would indeed be justified if you may be thinking this is a contradiction of me; As I write and lust over fashion/ style constantly to an unhealthy level). I now have to purchase a bag on such a tight budget as I only have... or rather had one loyal, durable heavy duty bag that took a good 'old battering.The studs were falling off and it was beginning to get frayed here and there, though to be honest I liked the distressed style it had morphed into over last year.
Obviously I now have no bag what so ever, and my new bag has got to function properly and match the quality of my old (RIP )bottomless studded bag. When I use the term 'function' I really mean: I NEED A BAG TO CRAM MY HECTIC, JUMBLED, LIFE INTO with out me having to squeeze all my belongings into the thing, with all my might and strength . When running around like a headless chicken I can't take such a gamble I 'gots'ta go, go, go and get out the door! This is an emergency I need to grab a bag, so in time of urgency I log into 'bling, bling on ebay' (this phrase is from a film isn't it? Oh I can't remember what film its from?Where was I...?) I speed type into the search bar 'very large bags' cut straight to the point...This never ending drop down list of stupid options appear in front of me time wasting 'selecting' required. Not. For god sakes I really cannot be asked to pursue this over detailed 'search' of choosing from an array of colours/patterns/textures/labels/new/old etc etc etc! I chose instead to ignore such shit and crack on with the bag task in hand. At this precise moment the bright red quilted, chain bag popped up. This will do, perfect I'm off to bid. Oh its 'buy now' even better, brilliant my mission completed, until...
The chunky, black studded bag took me by surprise. As it is near enough the spitting image I'd even go as far to say a 'clone' of my beloved ex- bag, *hoooooray!?


However my diet consists of crackers, grapes and cups of tea (minus the biscuits *sob) due to the lack of pennies rolling around in my lonely purse, there for I am unable to opt for this baby. Final conclusion: I'm purchasing the quilted red, shall fill you in on if whether or not I am easily able to cram my life inside this ebay bargain of a bag, £15. Yep 15 quid's this is with p&p thrown in too. If my math is correct than technically I have some lose change to buy some more crackers (like I haven't grown old of them yet!I have)...At this rate I'm soon going to resemble a bag of bones. Not attractive nor very sexy what so ever ( this being my personal self-reflective opinion). Cannot tolerate clothes looking all baggy and sloppy on myself as being ripped off in the height department,this very much results in I, appearing to look as if I'm drowning deep in layers of garments.
PS...Get yourselves over to ebay. This is a strict order from me to you.:As there really are some mighty fine and extremely impressive bags going for an insane 'buy it now' price my friends!

Oh please do not be tempting me to buy more bags! My mother had to drag me kicking and screaming from a bag shop this afternoon to prevent me purchasing the most perfect HUGE tapestry bag ever.
You really should e-mail me, you know I might even buy you a cup of tea (AND a biscuit)

Sorry about your bag. At any rate, the red one is beautiful. I bought a purse last month, and before that, I hadn't bought one since 2005. Becoming a vegetarian and eschewing leather has made purse and shoe shopping quite difficult... and probably saved me a lot of money.

I say go for the first one. The colour will definitely brighten up any cloudy day!
