A must have at a very good price!
on 30 January 2014
Having had to borrow a black shoulder bag for a funeral, I realized my wardrobe was missing an essential little BLACK shoulder-bag for every occasion. The bag I was lent only closed with one "popper" so didn't feel very safe but this bag has SEVEN zipped compartments + 3 little separate compartments. It is not really fashionable so it will never look dated. It can be made dressy with a smart scarf tied to it or by attaching some blingy bits to the zip-pulls but most of all, I can take it anywhere: weddings, funerals, parties or traveling as I could then carry passport, cash, cards etc safely next to my body. It looks better if you don't over-fill it but it will take basic make up items + a mini hairbrush in one section, cash, cards, mobile etc in the middle section which open really wide and has in internal, very discreet zipped compartment. There is even room for a paperback in the last section. Really, it's up to you but it works well as an organizer as long as you always put things in the same place! (imagine looking for your credit card through 10 compartments when there is a queue behind you at the till! You probably would get lynched!)
You can see the bag is leather (and smell it) and although it is probably made from offcuts, it doesn't look like one of those cheap patchwork leather bag. The zips probably cost the manufacturer more than the leather! I now tend to take it with me in addition to my big fashionable bag, just to keep all my valuables close to me in the same place rather than have to rummage through my bag (the one with the kichen sink in it...) to find anything!
