Love at first sight

Handbag unboxing - Zara 'Office City' bag 
*warning, picture heavy post* 

I am in love ladies, I have found my dream bag. The Office City bag from Zara is now safely in my posession and I just had to share it with you, even though you've probably already seen a gazillion other people's posts on it. Personally, I've never purchased anything from Zara before and it had never even crossed my mind to look in their online store (I don't live near an actual store) until I had discovered their handbags. The Office City bag reminds me SO much of this Prada bag and the Chanel executive tote bag which both retail at over £1200 - needless to say, I won't be purchasing either of those. The Zara bag however, retails at £49.99 which I feel is pretty darn good for a bag of this size/quality. The service was amazing too - I ordered Easter Sunday and it arrived at my door 2pm today (tuesday), the only nag I have is that delivery was free for orders over £50 which I missed by 1penny. I ended up ordering one of the kids tshirts for my brother for £4.99 instead of paying the £4.95 delivery - it made sense to me. Anyway, enough waffling - here's the bag... Enjoy! 

a mahoosive box
pretty simple packaging
short handles and a longer strap to wear over the shoulder
3 zipped compartments, 2 unzipped.  
 a padded middle layer, ideal for a laptop or ipad etc. 

plenty of inside space and lots of handy pockets and zips for smaller items (hair clips & loose change etc) 
more nifty pocket space and a handy built in purse 
 a slightly wider piece on the long strap to make it a bit comfier to carry 

 a studded bottom to reduce the amount of time spent on the floor 
can be worn either on the shoulder or in the crook of your arm - I like it both ways

Phew, that is a lot of pictures for one post! Please excuse the dusty mirror too *bad blogger*. So, do you like this as much as I do? Any of you other ladies have this bag in your collection? I'm so happy with my first Zara purchase - this is my new baby.
