A bit of baggage...

I love me a good bag. That will probably come as no surprise to many readers of this blog but right now I am on the look out for a more practical bag. Something strong and sturdy but still stylish. Something I can throw my laptop, a book and a pair of shoes in when I want to go somewhere.

I don't want something plastic. I want something better than the average eco bag. I am thinking perhaps a study canvas option. I need something with a decent strap so I can carry it over my shoulder. I don't want a messenger bag.

Sounds easy, right? Not really. I am a super fusspot when it comes to bags. I can look for months for exactly the right thing. I'd like something handmade and I don't want to spend a lot of money on it (sub $50 if possible).

Of course, I have found a couple of examples on my favourite shopping site, Etsy. So far I have the following on my shortlist:

Stockholm Canvas bag from Ikabags - this nautical gem is just $39 and it's made from beautiful French canvas.

Abanoz bag in reg from Bayanhippo - $35. I like the colour and the roundness of the style. It's very cute.


Cloud bag from sineminugur - on sale for $29. The black and white is practical but is it as stylish as the other two?

So kittens, which one do you think I should get?

I think I do too Ms Curious... They have some very cool colour combinations in the store.

I like the nauticalness of #1 but then #2 is cute because it reminds me of a tulip skirt! :P

I think the second bag is fab and the red will go with pretty much anything.

The Stockholm for me... and you? x

The votes are in and I think it's fairly evenly split between #s 1 and 2...

But I think #1 is a bit more trendy! So I think I'll get that one!

I opted for the Stockholm in navy and white with a red strap! Thanks for your feedback ladies!
