Last December I decided to profit the Black Friday sales and bought this bag. THE bag.
To be honest I was after the famous Mansur Gavriel bucket bag but… waiting lists? I couldn’t be bothered. So when I found this beautiful lookalike for a fraction of the price I was intrigued. And when the Black Friday sales popped into my inbox, I gave in.
Since then I’ve been wearing it every single day and I love it so much that it has become THE bag for me. What are you wearing? THE bag. Where is the receipt? In THE bag. What will you save if your house was on fire? THE bag. Everyone knows which bag I’m refering to.
Perfect for work, travel or leisure, it looks great with almost any outfit (when paired with my white Stan Smith I feel like a cool Nordic girl), you can fit your life inside, it has a removable pouch to carry your valuables, a cute front pocket for your business cards / old receipts / strange papers that you keep in your purse without reason, the leather is incredibly smooth but has remained unscratched in spite of the hard life that I’ve given to it… The lists of pros is enless. It’s just the best value for your money.
So if you are thinking about buying a nice bag that can put up with your everyday, normal, crazy, busy, realistic life, a life in which you take luchboxes to work, bags need to be left in the floor of cafes, planes and even hospitals, a life in which you can’t change your bag everyday because you decide what to wear five minutes before heading out of the door and you are mostly late… then I can’t recommend the Lancaster Large Bucket bag enough. There are 18 diferent colours and even though I can’t be happier with the hazelnut shade I chose, I have my eyes on the nude version with navy interior and the burgundy one, which would be great for Autumn, don’t you think?
