After lusting over a Proenza Schouler PS11 bag for some time now, I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that, unless I sell a kidney, I ain't getting one. I've been looking elsewhere for the perfect small messenger bag for a while, as sometimes a big bag is just too much, and too much strain for my poor shoulders the amount of stuff I pile in mine.
Anyway, I spotted this beauty a while ago on the Zara website, but I decided this was not a priority at the moment. However, to my surprise my lovely boyfriend surprised me with this a couple of days ago, and I have to say it's even cuter in real life.
The suede and leather are a really sleek looking contrast and the bag looks a lot more expensive than it was (a steal at £39.99) and has just the right amount of gold bling to jazz up an outfit. I think it could be used as a nice clutch for a night out as well, with the strap tucked in. And there's nothing I love more than versatility in an item!
Until I do get my hands on the PS11, this is the perfect alternative.
