The Obsession #2: Zara Handbag Family

If anyone thought my obsession with Sunglasses (especially owning two of the same was obsessive) then welcome to a small part of the H.O bag collective. These five are my favourites and are all a part of the Zara handbag family, from my first ever cream messenger bag to the in your face orange beauty. Yes I own others, but nothing quite matches up to the “I look way more expensive than I am” feel you get with a zara bag.

Aside from the Zara City bag which retails at around £50 (and I’ve seen it recently in both London and brighton stores), they all cost just over £20 which is rather amazing, and they’ll be with you for a long while as long as you’re not carrying bricks around with you on a daily basis.

My favourite though? It’s hard to say – almost like choosing between your favourite flavour of ice cream – or is that just me? For days when i’m carrying my work macbook – the Zara City wins easily, but for every day it’s a tie between the nice n’ neutral messenger bag and the orange Mini Shopper. 

A decent sized collection but with the Zara sale still on and my nude messenger bag starting to look a little grey, it would be silly not to invest really…

    I've never owned a Zara bag 🙁 Although I was really tempted by the City Bag. I definitely need to start my own collection soon.

    I really need to start investing in Zara bags. They look so designer like and chic minus the expensive price tag. You have a really nice collection 🙂 And that City bag- I NEED IT.

    I have been lusting over the Zara city bag for ages but haven't wanted to spend so much since it's not real leather; is the quality worth it?

    I had 6 Zara bags in my online shopping basket when they were in the sale, but I thought that was a bit excessive so decided against them all because I couldn't chose!
