New Things: The Zara Basic Messenger Bag

Remember when I mentioned I was lusting after this bag?  You'll notice I was good....I only bought one!

I'm so glad I opted for the red/pink version.  I love the colours together and from what I've seen, the black version has more of a shiny leather-look finish, whereas this is more of a texturised matte effect.

At £19.99 this is an absolute bargain and perfect for using at the weekends or on quick trips out.  This wouldn't really be practical for longer journeys as, when it's got more than just the bare essentials in it, it has a tendency to pop open on one side.  It rolls up and secures with magnets, but I tried using this for work the other day and it just wouldn't stay shut.

One annoying thing about Zara is that I find so many lovely bags online but rarely actually find them in store.  Good thing is, they offer free delivery to store though, so there's no excuse not to shop...and perhaps shop a little more when you go to collect....

  1. I nearly bought the black version of this but never got round to it. You may have persuaded me now though, oops.

  4. I know what you mean about not being able to find the bags instore. It's so annoying, especially when the one you want is sold out online!

  5. I am so tempted to buy this bag. It looks like an American kid taking lunch to school in a rolled down paper bag. Does the shoulder strap come off?

  6. Ahh I love this, and that's strange 'cos I'm not normally a pink person but this is lovely, I love the colour combo too. My boyfriend thinks I already have too many bags though, I disagree, he just doesn't seem to understand that each one has a different purpose. xx

  8. I bought this about a month ago and have the same problem with its open, I reside it now for days when I'm running errands or going out out when I'm not carrying much more than my purse and a lipstick! Xx
