I have a bit of a weakness for handbags, and not just any handbags but I have a major weakness for Mulberry handbags. There’s just something about them that I love – and always will. But my latest handbag love isn’t Mulberry at all – but an Italian brand called L.Credi which I discovered after spotting the grey bag on the T.K.Maxx website. It looked like a good ‘sensible’ bag, smart, structured a nice neutral colour…ticking all the right ‘sensible’ boxes…but it took sensible to a new level…
Basically, the reason I call this the perfect blogger bag is that the size is perfectly roomy to fit a laptop or iPad plus DSLR camera. Whilst I love my Mulberry bags, they are on the smaller size or too slouchy in style to feel like they protecy my DSLR if I want to lug it around London with me.
The grey bag perfectly fits my MacBook Pro in one side whilst leaving room for my DSLR plus other bits and bobs (four lipsticks anyone?!) in the other. Of course lugging those sorts of techy bits isn’t exactly lightweight, but they fit and that’s what matters.
So it was love at first sight for this one – my only teeny tiny niggle was that as much as I love grey (it’s basically my staple clothing colour) it did feel a little on the dull side for Spring/Summer – so I went on the hunt to see if I could find the same bag, in a different colour. And what did I stumble across – the gorgeous cream and mint version. Basically my favourite colour ever (mint that is).
Now, the eagle eyed of you may spot that the bag versions are slightly different – the mint version has two side sections that are zippable (and the perfect iPad size) but importantly the same applies as to the grey – I can fit my MacBook Pro and my DSLR in comfortably with wiggle room for the other bits. The MacBook is a slightly snugger fit in this one but it does fit.
Both versions have the short handles plus a longer strap that can be attached plus interior pockets and sections, including a zippable on in the middle and a small side pocket too.
I think the design in similar to the Prada or Zara versions although don’t own either of these so can’t vouch for that, but do believe them to be similar.
If you want a bag that also doubles as a magical portal that seems to never get full…then these bags are fab!
