Cath Kidston Book Bag
Advantages: Great quality, amazing bag
Me and my lovely boyfriend have only been together for just under three weeks and so when he brought me a bag full of presents round over Christmas, I assumed a majority would be chocolate, teddies and all the other stuff that guys stereotypically buy their new girlfriends at Christmas. I'm not the easiest person to buy for so most people buy me simple stuff - not many people dare buy me clothes, bags or stuff like that!
After opening most of the presents, I came across a medium sized square present which I expected to be either a chocolate orange or one of those tacky mugs with a personalised message. How wrong was I! He'd discuised the bag well by having it wrapped up in a gorgeous floral box, and the bag is lovely - I knew instantly that it was a Cath Kidston bag by the floral design and I was over the moon. He admitted my mum had shown him a picture of the one I was after (this bag was on my Christmas list), and he said as soon as he saw it in the shop he literally grabbed it as fast as he could as they were selling out so fast!
These book bags vary from £16 to £18 each. This is slightly expensive for a book bag, but well worth it - the quality is brilliant and you can tell how well made my bag is just by looking at it. My boyfriend bought my particular bag from John Lewis, but they can be bought from a variety of shops such as ASOS, Cath Kidston, Debenhams etc.There are a variety of patterns available. There are all sorts of colours and designs including shooting stars, chelsea rose, field flowers, retro flowers, birds, lace stripe and lots more. I have this book bag in country rose. It is gorgeous! It's an off-white colour - almost beige with a tone of light khaki. It has gorgeous roses all over it which vary in colour - there's shades of pink, red, pale pink and white. The design is lovely and really eye catching - it's a tell tale Cath Kidston print meaning that no one will look at it and think "tacky!" or "cheap!".
This is a shoulder bag and it has two handles which are big enough to be put over my shoulder without hanging too low - does that make sense? Sometimes shoulder bags can be a bit too long and can bang against my hip or side when i'm walking but this doesn't. The handles can alternatively be held like you'd hold a shopping bag although the bag's a bit too long to hold it like this as it'd drag along the floor. Directly underneath where the handles are it has the Cath Kidston badge/logo sewn on, this simply reads "Original Cath Kidston Ltd London." I love this as it shows it is a real Cath Kidston bag and not a cheapo Primarni rip off!
The bag is made of thick cotton. The cotton's not soft, it has quite a tough, strong feel to it but it is smooth to the touch. I was worried it would get drenched when I go out and about in the rain and it'd get spoiled, however it doesn't absorb water at all and it was fine yesterday when I got home after walking from my boyfriend's house in the rain - it dried quickly. Despite it being thick and good quality it is still very lightweight when empty and when I put my phone, purse and other bits and bobs it doesn't weigh me down like some tote/book bags can do soon as you put something in it - the bag holds the weight well if that makes sense.
It also has an inside pocket, which is big enough for a small purse or phone. The book bag measures L38 x W33 x D8cm and I can fit loads of stuff in this bag - yesterday I took a few presents to my cousins house and used this bag to carry them, it fitted two large books in it fine and also a variety of smaller items such as dvd's, my camera/camera case, etc. Overall this is a lovely bag, it looks great and is very strong and spacious, it is quite expensive for a book bag but it's good quality, so I would highly reccomend it.
Summary: A gorgeous bag
