My New Everyday Bag from River Island07:00:00
I have been after an everyday black bag for months now; I'm really fussy with bags, I like them to be quite boxy because I have a habit of chucking things in there and I hate it when the bag is slouchy and I can never find anything. I also like it to have a zip as I always worry about a stranger dipping their hands in my bag while I'm on the tube or something. So when I saw this bag in River Island, I was really happy that it ticked all the right boxes. Luckily I found a voucher code to get 25% off for a limited time only so I paid £33.75 for the Black Hinge Handle Large Tote Handbag instead of £45. Some of you may find it is quite a big bag to wear everyday, but I prefer it to be a bit bigger so I can fit my lunch for work in or an umbrella if I need it. I also think it would be great for when I go back to uni as I could fit my textbooks and laptop in there perfectly ( I do have quite a small laptop). It's really sturdy and a nice waterproof material. I love the black and white detail on the bag, I think it adds so much character without being too bold to wear everyday. The centre of the bag is protected with a zip while you have an open section either side of the large packet where you can put things that you need to grab quickly. I love this bag and I cannot wait to start using it!
