New Look Rose Trolley Bag
This eye catching pink rose holdall trolley bag from New Look was a purchase I made for our weekends away. 'Not another bag!' I could hear hubby say. Love my travelling bags though and better still, love a bargain!
**Floral print... Hmmmm!*
I'm not a massive fan of floral prints as they don't seem to match my choice of clothes usually but this bag was on sale for £20 down from £39, so won me over. Love a bargain! It's definitely one of the nicer floral prints I've seen and is easy to spot which is always handy. It's a bold pink rose print with green leaves set against a dark brown/black background. I do find when I use it I have to wear plain coloured clothing with it though because it can really clash against some clothes. It's one of those bags whereby you have to think about what you're wearing when you know you are taking it out with you.
My daughter tells me this is a stylish and fashionable bag and yes, a par usual with my 17 year old, it gets pinched on occasions. I guess therefore it would make for a good present for a fashion conscious young lady.
**Design and Purpose**
Always on the hunt for bargain, like mentioned, I bought this bag for weekends away. My sister also has one and she uses it for hand luggage when going abroad so it's within the right weight and size specs for that too.
The bag itself is made of a canvas material and looks like a holdall with a handle on each side so it can be carried easily. With it being a trolley bag, the wheels on one end allow it to also be pulled along. As with most holdalls though that stand upright to pull along, your belongings inside tend to all fall over the place. If you're ok with that, and pack carefully bearing that in mind, it's a very handy feature for when your arms or shoulders are tired. I'm able to pack 2 changes of clothing, shoes, make up and toiletries bag, books, pyjamas, jacket, jewellery, hair dryer and a few extras. It's plenty big enough for all of that and I'm usually adding a few baby clothes as well if there isn't enough room for his clothes elsewhere.
The main large zipped compartment of the bag has a zipped punch on the front which would be good for important documents. I've always kept my train tickets in it when have been using the train.
There are quite a few different compartments inside the bag, the main body being for packing clothes, with 4 large zip pockets for toiletries and smaller pockets again that I like to keep my glasses and contacts in. The main compartment has a base with plastic lining for support.
Other positives about this bag are the wheels glide really well, the handles are comfortable to hold and considering I've had the bag several months now, it's still looking as good as new. It's very lightweight and practical apart from it not being waterproof.
I like my bag and even the print has grown on me.
Summary: A useful weekend bag
