I never really buy bags in Primark as
I think they can often look a bit plasticy and cheap, so I couldn’t believe
it when I spotted this beauty in the Tottenham Court Road store on
Friday night. It’s pretty similar in style to the to die for Michael Kors Selma bag, but a snippet of the price – ONLY £10! On Saturday I posted a Primark haul post, featuring this gorgeous bag and lots of you on Twitter said you’d like to see it have it’s own post. So, here it is!
Whilst not real leather, it has a lovely feel to it and doesn’t look too plasticy. It has these two gorgeous gold metal bars running down each side of the front panel, and the gold hardware around the handles all add to the luxe feel of this bag. Can you believe it was only £10?! BARGAIN!
The winged shape of this bag is very in right now and I love that the zip top goes all the way across, covering the wings as well. On many winged bags I’ve seen, the zips only cover the main body of the bag, leaving the wings wide open. This has stopped me buying any of these other bags, as I want a full zip for good security when walking around London or on the tube, and to keep out the awful rain we’ve been having.
Inside, the bag is lined with a plain black fabric, which keeps it smart. Other than a mobile phone compartment and a small internal zip compartment, the body of the bag is completely open, which means you can fit heaps in it. Excellent!
The handles are grab style, and fit comfortably over your wrist to nuzzle in the crook of your arm. I sometimes find Primark grab bags have tiddly little handles literally just made for holding, but this is not an issue with this one. The material of the handles is also nice and soft too.
The bag also has a detachable long strap, so the bag can be worn across the body or on the shoulder. It has a buckle system too, so can be adjusted to suit your height and preference.
