Before I made my 2018 Wardrobe Resolutions this year, I bought this Anya Hindmarch pouch, just in case one of my resolutions was going to be “don’t purchase less unnecessary stuff”. It ended up not making my list anyway, but I’m glad I got this little Anya goodie it early. I’ve already started using it. And as a bonus, it amuses my baby.
I have a general weakness for pouches – I have always envisioned myself as the sort of person who has everything in their bag and life organized in nice little containers and bags. This isn’t really true, but I use pouches enough that I am able to justify them. And I couldn’t resist this Anya Hindmarch Happy Face pouch (there’s also a gloomy face one by the way, which I think more accurately reflects my mood these days, but I have to role model positive energy for the children). I love too many items that Anya Hindmarch produces, probably because it’s kind of like a Sanrio but more expensive for grown up. Don’t you think?
I’m currently using this as a cosmetics bag, but it could even be used as a little diaper essentials/notebook + pen + receipts caddy + travel/passport wallet, etc. The two zips are very useful for that and inside the “mouth” curved pocket there is a little divider as well. Even though I love my pouch, I do have to warn that it appears to be the sort of item that men instantly dislike. I thought my husband would find it cute and charming, but instead he seems to find it unnerving. His first reaction:
Husband: What. Is. This.
Me: A smiley face pouch! You see how the zipper is also the mouth? Do you think it’s cool?
Husband (ignoring my comment): Was this expensive?
Husband: Then why does it come with its own dustbag?
It’s my own fault that he knows what a dustbag is since he’s had to pick up bags on order for me multiple times. But no regrets! This purchase was unnecessary, but makes me smile.
Have you purchased anything like that lately?
