Lipsy Leopard Print Bowling Bag
Advantages: see review - too many
Disadvantages: not for those who don't like leopard print
Despite parts of this company being a slight spin off of Juicy Couture, I can't help but love it! The dresses are all gorgeous and same with regular every day clothing - but some of the bags are to die for. Especially this gorgeous bowling bag in leopard print. It was love at first sight. My unhealthy love for leopard print just hasn't been fulfilled yet so I intend to keep buying until it bores me!
For £32 the bag is really reasonable for the label its attached to. I expected Lipsy bags to shoot way about the price limit of River Island and into the £40's minimum. You can buy the bag in Lipsy stores, amazon and also on eBay second hand - worth checking if you don't want to pay the full amount.
When it comes down to cleaning the bag, it is a quite easy to wipe material so it doesn't need heavy scrubbing or a washing machine to make it look good as new again.
The bag does look exactly like the image on this, if not better. The bag is light grey and I'd say medium sized. It is smaller than a weekend bag and bigger than a handbag. Its perfect for the new fashion of keeping everything you own in your handbag (which I do!). The leopard print is on the top of the bag, at the bottom on a pocket and underneath the straps - which sounds odd placing but when you look at it, its lovely. I have to admit, it is the right amount of leopard print not to look tacky. It is really stylish infact, perfect for looking like you spent a million on a bag when you haven't! Lipsy has placed a plaque like logo on the front similar to the River Island bags - very nice!
The bags large front pocket is perfect for storing bits inside and fits a wallet purse in, although I just use it for display and don't store anything inside. The inside of the bag is big enough to store everything and the lining is a little like cotton with a zip pocket holding the lipsy logo and two material pockets with no top perfect for phone and keys.
The straps are a medium length which is perfect for slinging the bag over your shoulder or stylishly hanging it off your arm. They are quite thick which is good as it can carry quite a weight (which has been tested by carrying three a4 sketchbooks full to the brim for college).
The quality of the bag is amazing bearing in mind its not expensive! I thought I would be struggling to make it last very long but I've had it for months now and it is still going strong - thank goodness. I had never brought a Lipsy bag before this and its made me want some more as they are such amazing quality and design.
The bag obviously does not go with every outfit, but it does well considering. The fact it is grey means it goes with most colours but some patterns do clash with it which I don't like.
I would recommend this bag to anyone wanting a stylish, versatile bag willing to take any weight you give it. It has held up my ridiculous amount of college books and not broken (touch wood). The strap is the perfect length and I couldn't fault the bag if I tried.
Summary: my favourite bag
