I can't believe it's not butter-soft leather
This is for my friend Liv (and others like her, such as Stella McCartney). It’s a faux-leather bag. Yes, can you believe it really isn’t made of leather? Me neither. It looks and feels so realistic that I had to do a doubletake in Zara. It was only when I clocked the price – a bargainous £39.90 – that I knew it to be of the non-leather variety. But the quality makes its feel far more expensive.
I love the weave. I love that it can be carried in a multitude of ways (thanks to the fold-down opening and a detachable chunky woven strap). I love that it's so roomy. And I love that there are three inside pockets to keep my wallet, mobile and travelcard from getting lost at the bottom of the bag. Most of all, I love it because it looks luxurious without the price tag. And Liv, it comes in cream, too!
