The other day, I was skimming through my Facebook when I came across an ad for JustFab. What caught my eye was the big bold letters that said ‘SALE’. So of course I just had to check it out.
Originally I wanted to check it out to see what cute shoes I could find. After skimming through the site, it turned into wanting a new bag, instead. I’m always buying a new bag, but I tend to get bored of bags really easily. I also find it kind of hard to find a universal bag that works for my lifestyle. So here’s what I need:
- Universal – It needs to work for both school/work purposes as well as for every day use when I’m out and about.
- Larger – I do all my classes online so I need a bag that can hold my tablet, daily planner, wallet, keys, a little bit of school supplies, etc. I like being able to carry everything with me so if I ever choose to go out and get some work done in a coffee shop or something, then I already have everything with me or I could easily just put everything into this bag and go. On the other hand it also can’t be too large because I don’t want it to feel heavy or huge after a while of holding it.
- Colorful? – All my current bags are neutral colors. I have one that is a pale blueish turquoise, but other than that, the rest are all black or dark brown or tan or a dark blue. No color whatsoever. So I’d love to have something that can give my outfit a pop of color.
I can be pretty picky sometimes. So here are the four bags I’m loving right now.
This first bag is called Magic Kingdom and it’s $69 on the JustFab website. This bag comes in peach [pictured above], tan, black and navy. I love the colors of this bag! Not sure if I’d get it in peach or black. I tend to like bags that are more universal. One of the things I love about this bag is that there’s a divider on the inside. Normally, I’d hate that. A lot. But for what I need a bag for, I feel like it would be useful. I can put my tablet and planner on one side and then my daily essentials such as my wallet and keys on the other side. It keeps everything separated which I like a lot. I think this one is my favorite.
Bag #2 is called Taj Mahal and it comes in blush [pictured above], black and tan. This one is absolutely adorable. The blush is currently out of stock so if I bought this one, I would definitely wait for that color to come back. It’s so girly! The only downside to this one is that a few people in the reviews said it didn’t have a very wide opening. So that’s a little disappointing. It wouldn’t really work for what i need it for. But it would still be cute to have!
The third bag I found is called East End and only comes in black. This one is definitely a nighttime kind of bag. I don’t think I’d carry this throughout the day with casual outfits. It has more of en edgy look. It would go better with skinny jeans and high heeled boots or pumps. So it wouldn’t work with my daily outfits. I’m also not a fan of the blue interior. But again, I’m in love with it and with the right outfit, it would be a great bag!
The last bag I found is called Prestige. This bag is also $69 and comes in taupe [pictured above] and burnt orange. The more I look at this one, the less I like it. Not sure why. I like it a lot, but I think it’s just a bit boring. There’s not much going on with it. And it’s also very square. I think the problem is that I just love the other ones more than this one.
So those are the top four bags that I’m looking into buying. Does anyone have any opinions on them? Each one is for different types of styles or occasions so I’m not sure if I’m going to go with one that’s more universal or if I’ll go with one that’s specifically for certain types of outfits or outings. I’m looking to purchase one sometime this weekend or next week so once I order it, I’ll do another blog post to show which one I chose!
