Splurge or Save: The bucket bag
Okay, so we've found it. Everyone, I mean everyone, including myself, has been lusting after the chic simplicity that is Zara's £80 bucket bag. You just have to look at it to realise its appeal; from the super fashion crowd to paired back practicals, this bag has been a hit success and received an unrivalled uptake from the masses. Unfortunately, when I say "the masses" that doesn't include me. I just can't justify such a simple design (which is in itself the reason why I love it so much), from a high street shop for nearly £100. So when I stumbled upon boohoo.com's look-a-like I had my debit card at the ready.
This Zara number is actually an update on the formally more simple design, but we're enjoying the new detail and features. Channelling super cool sport luxe, the mesh effect adds another dimension without taking away from the minimalist aesthetic which is the bucket bag's ultimate appeal. This boohoo.com look-a-like rivals it super closely and at nearly a third of the price (£28!), it's super tempting - don't you think?
(I know which one I'm going for...)
