HOTD #36 – Zara Vintage Look Structured Bag

photoThis bag was an impulse purchase after seeing it in a magazine. It is not the sort of bag I usually go for but I really like it. Zara do really lovely handbags.

It is a vintage-look structured leather croco-print bag with short handles and a removable shoulder strap. There are two side-sections which fit A4 and a central clipped area for valuables. It is a big bag but looks small and neat. It can be used with both smart and casual outfits. And it really fits a lot into a smart structured shape.

I haven’t used it in a while but photographing it for this post makes me lust after it again!

A totally unflattering photograph - it is hard to find anywhere light enough to do it justice at this time of year in Sweden. Plus it has my jumper in one side!

  1. Zara do have lovely handbags, I really like them. One question: Where do you carry your laptop? Usually I carry mine in a backback, but lately I want to buy like a more polished computer bag. Any recommendation?

    1. I have a Samsonite laptop bag which converts from a backpack to a shoulder bag to a hand-held one. It is in khaki and orange and I love it. Otherwise I tend to carry my laptop in my handbag (which can usually accommodate it and keep it fairly in place. I have a 15 inch MacBook Pro. Would you like a post about my Samsonite? It is rather nice.
