I’ve always been a massive bag lover. Previously I would own at least ten at a time. Now that I am a grown up and into a more streamlined lifestyle, I prefer buying a bag or two a year. It is easy to stay trendy and also not overspend if you are on a tight budget. Another reason why I like this method is because I have been noticing for a while now how easily bags get ruined even if they are from well-reputed brands so if a bag lasts me more than a year I thank my lucky stars.
Looking for a new bag is like going on a quest to me. I get a mini panic attack when I realize I have nothing to lug my things around in. The crying fest starts from that day and continues while I browse around every store and say how I can’t seem to find anything I like. Am I the only one who feels our options have become very limited these days and every brand is copying the next one and we basically are presented with the same products with minor changes and quality difference?
Anyhow! After weeks and weeks of looking for something remotely presentable, somewhat unique and capable of handling my baggage, I found my bliss in New Look. I spotted this gorgeous red duffle bag with gold detailing the second time I went in. I was a bit reluctant because I wasn’t sure about the front zip detail which is for show only but the drawstrings were such a cute feature I didn’t want to miss on. The material is soft and the quality is great. What sold the bag most to me was the cross body strap and space. I often get tired of carrying the bag one way and prefer across the shoulder for ease and even though this bag did not have an adjustable strap the length was perfect for me. It might look like a small bag but it can store quite a lot. I haul half my room in a bag so trust me when I say this bag has ample storage space.
It is still available in New Look outlet in Muscat City Center. Link for the website is HERE!
Price: OMR 12.000
