studded bucket bag

alexander wang diego bucket bag

Isn't she just perfect? The Rocco bag has been uber popular in the blogosphere but I kind of think it's a bit done now. That and I don't always have an arm free to hold a bag! The Diego, however, can be held like that or slung over your shoulder, and is so pretty! Sure it's not the conventional type of pretty, but I like it lots. Obviously I'm not loving the £695 price tag, so I've been adding rip-offs to my watch list on eBay for literally months on end. I've also tried to track down some similar styles on the high street and hoped something would catch my eye. Here are a few picks:



L-R, top-bottom: zara, urban outfitters, topshop, river island, topshop, H&M

My favourite out of the lot would have to be the Zara offering (click the link to see all the little diamonds! So cutes!) but I feel I would probably only want to use that for special occasions and so on, whereas the Diego 'style' one is more suitable for daytime too? I feel like my perfect ones always end up being the most pricey as well (looking at you UO..) but hey what can you do! I was thinking about getting the H&M one and customising it myself but I saw it in store and it was really plastic looking! Probably going to end up getting the eBay version and maybe getting the Zara one for my birthday or something. What do you think? Are bucket bags for you or not so much?

  1. I like bucket bags, though I prefer a more slouchy kind of bag. My favourite of all of those is the one least like a bucket bag.

  3. The Zara and Urban Outfitters bags are definitely my favourite, as well! And surely you wouldn't be able to save the Zara bag for just special occasions? It'd look lovely dressed down during the day x

  4. I had a bucket bag about five years ago, and it really annoyed me for accessability. Ha! But these all look so pretty.

  5. Not gonna lie, probably going to buy the Zara or River Island version soon (: I love the bucket version of the Rocco, it looks more high end to me and so much more unique. I have a lovely taupe and muted green bucket bag from Topshop that I haven't worn in forever. xxx

  9. My boyfriend bought me one from New Look that looks very like the Urban Outfitters bag. I think he got it in May so I don't know if they still have it, it was kinda expensive for New Look though - £55 I think.

  11. I love bucket bags! I have the problem of filling them with too much stuff and then taking forever to retrieve things. Might need to search for on with lots of pockets inside :-) x

  12. I love the Alexander Wang one, it looks so much more expensive compared to rest of them. If only we were rich *sigh*.

    Out of the highstreet versions, I definitely like the Zara and River Island ones best!

  22. I love these bags but I know that when it comes to actually using it I wouldn't get the wear out of it. My favourite is the UO one I think...

  24. I saw this bag just after I bought an incredibly similar one from Primark of all places! It has the same sort of finish as the Alexander Wang one, and also has similar fastenings. Usually I steer clear of imitation leather from Primark, but the bag is so nice, and as well as a short strap like the Rocco it has a longer shoulder strap. It was only £9 and has lasted really well, carried a ton of stuff including my dSLR all round Berlin and it's still perfect. Maybe worth a go looking in the big Primark stores? Might even be on sale now. :)
