Every new beginning heralds the purchase of a new bag. Or something.
I decided to start this blog by
boasting posting about my gorgeous new Zara tote bag.
I spied this about 3 weeks ago and it was one of those "absolutely must have" retail moments. I was thinking of it in terms of a stylish laptop bag that could also be an accommodating dumping ground for all the rubbish I seem to lug around with me every day. Most importantly though it met the happy medium for me between Valentino studding and Celine quality-structured leather - both bags I have been craving. The good news with this one is that it was less than a tenth of the price at £119.
Add to basket.
It arrived today - I won't go into the whole delivery debacle as I know we have all been there with couriers, but if you pay for Saturday delivery you expect it on that forthcoming Saturday don't you? Not 2 weeks later.
Anyway, "in with anger, out with love" and all that and so I am delighted to introduce this bag to you :)
The leather is much thicker than I expected. It feels durable, extremely well made and the colour is a gorgeous dark butter/light tan. I sort of love the fact that there is no external branding as well. I don't generally like bags with big logos or obvious statements about where they came from. There is a subtle anonymity about this one - it's just a nice design and it's everything I wanted.
So here is the front...
This is going to hold ALOT.

Cannot wait to debut this. Surely, I cannot be the only person out there that gets overexcited about handbags?
Anyway, you can get the bag here...
Have a great weekend all and thank you for reading this post! :)
