This is one of my BEST BARGAINS EVER! It is a Minimal Shopper by Royal Republiq, a Danish brand, and was reduced from $258 to $16 at AFound (H and M’s outlet store). I have a more comfortable strap that I clipped onto the D-rings, and it has a pink fluffy keyring on it as well because it cheers me up.
I think this brand is overpriced as the bags are all over $200, but if you can find them more cheaply the leather is lovely. The cognac colour is gorgeous!
I have another Royal Republiq bag (see below), which is more well designed for work. It has a padded laptop sleeve and keeps A4 papers nice and flat. I have it in dark brown. This one was reduced from $258 to $35, so not such a great bargain, but still a good price for great leather. It’s a bit boring in design but I usually wrap a pretty scarf or small charm around the handles. It works really well if you need to be classic, understated, and need a briefcase but do not want to carry one.
If anyone would like candid shots, let me know and I can take some and make a new post.
