That Zara Bag…

Yes, it’s that bag. The one that everyone and their mum currently owns, or are trying to hunt down. I picked up the cream messenger bag a few weeks ago after a very stressful morning at work (which continued to be a stressful day, so I went for a shop after work too). The bag in question is a beautiful cream (faux?) leather and has lovely rose gold hardwear.

The leather not only looks beautiful (in some lights it seems to have a tiny hint of lilac) but it also feels lovely as the material is so soft. It also packs a mass amount of stuff into it, and even when over packing, you can leave the top open, obviously for security purposes this isn’t great, but when i’m rushing to the car and need to just chuck a lunchbox full of fruit in on my crazy dash for work, it just works! It’s also amazingly sturdy, most bags that I find for this price start to show some form of wear after a couple of weeks, but the only thing I’ve found about this is it shows some dirt – no biggie a sponge with a little warm water and soap clears that right up!

I love this so much I genuinely think I need the black one! It only costs £20 and is so well made, it is so spacious and feels so luxurious I couldn’t recommend it more.

What are your thoughts on Zara and their bags? Do you like this one or is it still too pricey for you?

Happy Saturday!

    I have it and I love it as well! However, I do think when you put too much stuff in it you can see the strap straining so I hope it doesn't break! x

    Seen these on so many blogs lately & thought it would be stupidly overpriced. £20!? Buying it tomorrow! It's soooo nice!

    I got bags from zara when they had that big sale. They were like $15.00. I think they are okay priced. Not under priced not over priced. I only carry my wallet, tablet, phone, makeup bag, and some random little items. Nothing too heavy. That happened to me in high school. I noticed my bags were distressed. I carried books and everything. I stopped that. Yours is cute.

    I *need* this bag! Too bad I don't think I'll ever be successful in tracking it down 🙁 It is simply gorgeous and such a great price as well.

    I can't get over the price of this bag – amazing! If I didn't already own far too many bags, this would definitely be in my collection! xx
