My New Bag(s)


I wrote, last month, about My Quest for the Perfect Bag and it seems that, like busses, 2 always seem to arrive at once!  Yep, I now have 2 bags that are pretty perfect for what I wanted!

The first bag I bought in TKMaxx.

It is by Pierre Cardin and is a lovely pewter shade.  It has a metallic finish but isn’t particularly shiny due to its textured, faux leather finish, and looks really classy.  There is minimal branding, just a tiny metal “Pierre Cardin” signature logo on the front, top centre, though the bag could be worn so the branding isn’t showing. There are 3 main pockets, the 2 outer ones have no inner pockets or zipped compartments but the centre one has a zipped pocket and 2 small open pockets.  This bag has a strap that is half chain and half material the same as the bag, the chain parts attach to the bag and the material part is designed to go over the shoulder.

Things I like about this bag.

Not so good things about the bag.

The second bag I bought is from Artsac.

This bag is by a company called Artsac, I had one of these when I was in uni and I loved it.  To be honest though, I had forgotten all about the brand but re-discovered them when browsing multi-pocket bags online.  When I saw that there was a sale on I jumped at the chance to buy one as I knew, from previously owning one, how durable and tough they are.  I was torn between buying a red one, a pink one or one of their colour block ones, but decided on this lovely blue colour.  The bag is nylon (I know…I did say that I didn’t really want a nylon bag…) but has so many pockets for all my bits and bobs and is big enough to carry all my things that I decided to break a rule to accommodate this purchase.  And I’m so pleased I did.  The strap is really wide, in a woven heavy-duty fabric, there are 2 big main zip compartments, both big enough to fit my Filofax, kindle, notebook and pencil-case in, one of these compartments has 2 slip pockets and the other has a small zip pocket inside.  There is a big zip section on the outside back of the bag which will hold notes and letters, 2 pockets in the flap of the bag, under which, there is another zipped pocket which will fit my keys, purse, phone and lip gloss.  This will be my main bag for taking everywhere as it is really light, due to the fabric it is made of, and it is perfect for my style which is both bright and more on the casual side!
