Wardrobe | The perfect bag

Like most aspiring clothing collectors across the blogsphere, I'm always searching for "the one". Oh how that phrase brings joy to the hearts of fashion gals all over the world - the perfect item. An item you can hold onto for years to come (sorry boyfriend), treasure, stroke reassuringly in times of need, an item that looks effortless paired with anything. My searches for "the one" have come in many different forms, the perfect white shirt, the perfect leather jacket, the perfect pair of heels. Sadly, "the one" usually is too expensive for me to lay my hands on (i.e the perfect white shirt, rag & bone, why you so pricey?!) or is impossible to hunt down. Until yesterday, my search for the perfect bag was unrequited. That was, until I laid eyes on the most beautiful bag I have ever seen. Hello, Zara bucket bag - or the 'shopper basket'. First of all, it's big. I mean, really big. It can fit everything in, laptop, keys, make up, kitchen sink. Secondly, it's minimal. There is nothing I hate more than tacky bags with a thousand zips, patterns, fabrics and weird twiddly bits with no purpose. Thirdly, it's made of the softest leather and comes in three gorgeous colours. Finally, it's only 39.99. What more could you want? While my perfectly perfect wishlist is still waiting to be completed, at least I can cross one line off for now.....
