Today’s bag is by Zina Eva, a designer I’d never heard of before I googled them to find out about this bag. They are expensive, and have mixed reviews. But nonetheless, I am happy with this bag at the price point of $8. What can I say, I’m a sucker for top-handle bags.
What’s cool: wooden handle, triple magnetic closure to make sure your stuff isn’t too heavy to keep it closed, and the beautiful suede lining. What’s not as cool: the exterior doesn’t look as real as it actually is. But, when it’s full of stuff it has a nice rounded shape on the bottom with the structured top – I think it looks classy. THere’s also a detachable shoulder strap – not long enough to crossbody for me. Overall, it’s pretty. Who knows, could end up in the giveaway someday.
I found this bag at Goodwill last year and was attracted to the wooden handle. It’s by Zina Eva, who i’d never heard of, and when i looked her up, the bags were upwards of $200+ retail and even on eBay $65 for a smaller one than this. Embossed patent leather, lined in suede, with pockets inside and the one on the outside perfect for a phone, not too heavy, and the water bottle fits. WIN for $8.
I stopped by Goodwill today – these pics were taken in the parking lot of the Woodlawn location, where i went after trying to walk at Glenwood Gardens but freaked out because of all the people there. I found three bags that i would have purchased in the past but didn’t buy today. Earlier i’d stopped by the St. Vincent de Paul on Este, and left these three bags there. Really nice but… i don’t need them.
