New Things: The Zara Everyday Shopper

4.3.13

Remember when I added the infamous City Bag to my wishlist?  At the time I didn't really have a spare £50 lying about, and in all reality I just wasn't sure if I truly needed it.  Enter the Everyday Shopper.

I like to think of this as the City Bag's younger cousin.  It's a similarly sleek shape, albeit not as wide and with contrasting handles.  And while the City Bag has three handy compartments, this just has one, big section.

One thing I've found with Zara bags is that while they may look nice online, in store that's not quite the case.  Or vice versa.  This bag is every bit as lovely in the flesh.  It's not leather (obvz), but it feels soft and supple whilst being just structured enough to maintain its shape.

But the best bit about this bag?  £22.99!!  This really is a bargain, and in my opinion a really nice alternative to the overdone City Bag for those on a smaller budget.

  1. £22.99? That's awesome! I'm in desperate need of a more grown up bag and this is gorgeous. Thanks for blogging about it!

    1. I think it's really sophisticated, and definitely doesn't look like it cost just over £20! x

    1. Arrrgh I don't think I've ever had a Zara bag before...I've found in the past that River Island and Faith (R.I.P) bags don't fare too well. My fingers are crossed for this then! x

  3. Ooh, I like! I tend to use one bag at a time and they usually wear out pretty quickly. Would this happen to be big enough for a laptop? x

    1. A small laptop possibly. It's not very wide, but you could perhaps fit a laptop in on its side x

  6. What an amazing price for such a nice bag! I'm not much of a shopper style bag fan but I think that's because they tend to be oversized and just drown little old me. Gotta love Zara though, always a winner

  9. That's such a lovely bag and a bargain too! I know what you mean about them sometimes not looking as good in the shops, I find it's the same with their heels but I always end up buying them anyway :)

    1. I was hedging my bets because I really wasn't sure whether I'd like it in real life. But it's so soft and feels like real leather x

    1. Haha my new thing is buying nice quality bags for each season. I couldn't use my Autumn one anymore because it has a stag on it, so this purchase had to be made! x

  15. Gahh so gorgeous! I love my City bag but the prospect of having one huge space? And for just £22? I think I may just have to purchase the red one for the summer!

    1. Sometimes those triple-compartmented bags really irritate me cos I get in a pickle when that middle one flaps in the way. Single, huge pocket does it for me every time! x
