The thing that got me into Anya Hindmarch’s Valorie clutches is the Valorie embellished with multicolor glitter. I went to the store just to kill time this one evening and saw it — it’s love at first sight!
I was getting married at the time, so I couldn’t allocate my funds for the Valorie. So I let it pass, thinking it’ll still be there, since it seems to be one of Anya’s bestsellers at the time (see my previous post on the Valorie multicolor).
Seasons passed. I ended up getting the Valorie in different colors, but not the one that I love the most. The times where I felt I was ready to get it, it was sold out and at times that it wasn’t, I was thinking, I’d get it the next season, thinking it will always be around. So imagine my shock when the KLCC store told me one day, that it’s sold out in KL and they’re not making it anymore.
I need it to match with my French Sole glitter flats!
I emailed the Anya Hindmarch shops in the UK to see which would still have the clutch. Only the outlets had it (to think years ago, the Valorie in multi would have never ended up in the outlets). Instead of buying directly and paying a hefty amount for shipping, I got it from a personal buyer who was already at the Bicester Village. Glad I still get to get it and once again, I didn’t have to pay full price 😆
