Thrift Inspiration, Doing it Alexander Wang style!!

For a little while now, I've been after a black hobo style bag, which is not too big and can go over my shoulder. So in my local Sue Ryder Care charity shop a couple of weeks ago, I came across a black leather bag, by Designers at Debenhams. It's by John Richmond and was a must buy for only £5.99.

I thought it was fairly similiar to the 'Donna' bag, brought out by Alexander Wang last year, with the zipper pockets and slouchy, hobo style.

The Donna bag, by Alexander Wang


What I like about my one is the studded details on each side, which is totally on trend for this season.


Plus, its not too big and I can get all my things in it on a daily basis with no problems-the ideal everyday bag!!


What style of bag are you lusting over this season?

I like this roomy bag. I don't quite know what kind of bag I want - I still haven't found the be-all, end-all of all bags yet. But I do have half an idea of sewing one for myself....! Perhaps I will..!

so cool!

There is a bongo bag that's on sale that I think would hold my books and everything possible! Its a bit like this one with all the extra pockets.

But I hope it stays on sale til I get Christmas money. I sooo want it.

I wish I'd bought the one I found similar yesterday. Before the snow came. Now its just yucky and severely cold. I hate the thought of any more Christmas shopping now.

Anika said...

Errr...not to offend the Wang-obsessed, but this bag kicks some serious arse. Sooo much better than the Wang one. What a thrift, you lucky girl.

Now show us an outfit post with it :)

And have a great week bella

Lovely find! I like the studding detail as well! And you'll be proud to know I went to a charity shopping event over the past weekend ;-) I might be posting about it briefly at some point. Hope you have a lovely week ahead!

Anusha said...

You know, I think your bag looks better than the AW bag! :o) Especially the studding detail -- those are perfect. I've been looking for another black handbag and have yet to find one.

Winnie said...

Great little find Sharon! I love Wang and this is a great alternative!
