My Uni Bag

Leather Tote Bag - Forever21
This bag is a recent purchase and this picture does not even justify the actual size. Let me put it this way, the bag goes up to just under my elbow and can fit all my uni stuff plus a coat, a scarf, lunch and still have space to be honest. I may have underestimated my ability to fill and carry such a huge bag but I'm making it work so far.

I was shocked to see such a good bag in Forever 21. It's never a place I go to for bags but this was randomly hanging on a rail on its lonesome in the Oxford Street branch and I scooped it up on my way to the fitting room. It has silver hardware which I love & very good structure. It doesn't look like it will lose its shape, EVER! It comes with a strap so you can carry it on your shoulder, however the bag then looks like it is nearly bigger than you. It only cost £25 so I wasn't going to leave it, even if it was half my arms length.
In terms of uni bags, a uni bag that fits everything you need without force is ideal.
That's one of many excuses for buying it I guess.

Primark Prints #2

 Print Bomber - Primark | Jeans - Topshop 'Joni' | Rings - eBay/Primark
Bomber jackets are slowly becoming a favourite of mine.
This was another purchase made whilst in Primark looking for some bits before I went back to uni. It was reduced to £10 and I could not leave it behind. I've been in love with patterned bombers so much lately and this one is so lightweight, perfect for warmer days. On my first day back to uni I actually wore this outfit but with a black tshirt & black snood instead of the vest because UK weather don't play! I love that it has plain sleeves and then the rest is patterned. I never saw this before it was reduced, where is Primark hiding things like this! It matches my new blue stone ring I got off eBay which, along with the snake ring, are my new favourite jewellery pieces and guys, black joni jeans do wonders for your legs. Thank me later!

Alternative Fashion Find #3

So don't get me wrong, I love Zara.
 I've seen this coat quite a bit on YouTube and Tumblr and I love the style of it but it's a tad pricey. So in my usual ebay searches I came across something in a similar style for those who are looking for a cheaper alternative. God bless those asian sellers. Now this is different in some ways but it's still a camel wrap coat and I actually like this one more. It's also more than half the price of Zaras which means you can save some money. I couldn't find a photo of the coat that wasn't watermarked so this will have to do.

eBay alternative link 1 & link 2  - £44

This is currently residing in my eBay watch list with the potential of being purchased sometime soon. It comes to around £44 and it comes in black. Can't really go wrong there. Bare in mind though that it will only go to a certain size because it is based on asian sizes but worth a try I think the biggest size is XL which should come to 96cm bust & 40cm on the shoulders. I've added two links just in case so check both.
Hope this is helpful, haven't done one of these posts in ages.
