I was about to give up all hope and then my eyes caught sight of the brown Dior monogram logo on a table that was still being set up. I was still unsure about whether it was genuine or not but regardless it still looked about 20+ years old.
I asked the man how much.
“£5" he replied. uninterested.
I literally clutched onto it for dear life whilst getting the cash out from my purse. Real deal or not, I had no concern for the price of £5.
Now, I am no designer bag expert but I really do have a strong feeling that this is genuine. The logo is woven and that appears have been a popular style of Dior bag in the 70s/80s. The gold detailing on the leather strap and the general overall quality really do suggest so. I'm thinking about taking it to the Dior department in Selfridges to see if they can authenticate it for me.
Best bootsale find ever, hands down.
Oh, and while we're on the subject of bargains, Poundland are selling Stila tinted moisturizer (spf 30, oil free!) I grabbed 3. Go go!
