Shirt – ASOS | Disco Pants – American Apparel | Shoes – Converse | Jacket – Cotton On | Bag – Shirt Bag from Cream
At college, I met this girl called Kat and she was wearing the most awesome bag I’ve ever seen. No, it was not a big brand name like Luis Vuitton or Chanel, it was actually a brand that I had never heard of before.
We were walking to the food court and I expressed that I needed a new backpack. I realised my Coach and Michael Kors bag was not appropriate to be carrying books in (face palm moment).
She then told me about her awesome bag that was made from a shirt. At first I thought it sounded pretty cool but as soon as I laid my eyes on it, I was in awe.
It was AWESOME!!!
You should really see this bag in person to understand the extensiveness of how awesome it actually is but I’ll try my best to describe it. The front of the bag where the collar was located was actually a pocket and the sides where the sleeves were sewn were pockets too.
Ok, so I’ll be the first to admit that I get pretty damn excited when I see something I like. However, this bag was so awesome that another girl in class overheard our conversation and bought the bag too. Now we all match hehehe.
The weekend after, I went to buy the bag in Newtown Sydney and realized that they had an amazing collection of clothes. I was upset that I didn’t know about this store earlier.
The bags that they stocked all had individual designs, none of them were the same. This made the selection process so much harder because I could only choose one.
Initially I was leaning more towards the crazy patterned and coloured design but then Chin reminded me that I would be using the bag everyday. So I decided to go for the red, still bold but at least I can match it with a lot more outfits.
If you haven’t already heard of the store you should definitely check it out (unfortunately it is only located in Australia) –http://www.creamonline.com.au/
