New Zara Bag

So on Friday I made a little trip to Zara, with the grey/rose gold satchel type bag that every blogger and their bff has at the moment…of course part of it came down to being suckered in by the hype, part of it was just that it’s a genuinely good daytime bag (and only twenty quid!).


But in the end I decided against it – something about the long thin strap (and my tendency to over stuff bags) just screamed ‘it will break’ to me. So instead I left with a collar necklace (can be seen wearing it in this post) that promptly decided to break on first wear – not impressed. So I took it back, planning to get a refund until I spotted this baby…


As soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to buy it – the combination of tan (with a pinky tone to it) and rose gold detailing meant it had the appeal of the other bag, but this one had the longer handle (that feels more secure than on the other bag) and the side handles, so can be worn different ways. It was £10 more than the other bag, but still a good price at £29.99…


I love it – the size and style, the fact it has a zip fastening and the inside pockets (there’s a zipped section plus pouches for phone/oyster card etc. The colour will go with pretty much anything, but it light enough to feel summery too and the rose gold details I just love.

On the website it’s described as a ‘Soft Bowling Bag’, but to me the shape isn’t anything like a bowling bag… bowling bags were made to carry bowling balls – this is tall and thin… but whatever. I’ve included a link below to this bag and also one to the bag I was talking about at the start!

    I too also recently bought the grey bag but I found the strap was just too short for it to be a satchel! It just didn’t quite sit right, so I sent it back, aha! Shame because it was a lovely colour.
