Bucket bags are the new rucksack and my new favourite obsession. It’s the grown-up’s alternative to a rucksack but still a fun casual bag.The designer duo who began this craze are Mansur Gavriel who launched a sell-out leather bucket bag in 2013. Since this their bags have been in high demand by fashion-lovers and celebrities everywhere.
Other designers such as Moschino and Michael Kors also want a piece of the action.
The Mansur Gavriel designs retail at $400-$1000 so for those of us not so flush here are few gorgeous alternatives. Everyday walking to work I pass 9 Crow St and take a good gawk in the window. I’ve been lusting after a gorgeous holographic bucket bag I saw there. I found a similar style on Etsy here.
Etsy is brilliant site for finding original handmade bags. The Pingypearshop have an amazing selection and all under €30!
As well as these, Etsy also sell vintage and leather one-of-a-kind bucket bags. It’s the best place to pick up something that no-one else will have.

Zara are always very quick off the mark so I’m not surprised they have capitalised on this trend.
Gorgeous Zara bucket bag with zip detail *swoon*.
And if white’s more your colour, Zara also have a fabulous perforated white bucket bag.
If these are beyond your budget, Penneys have some gorgeous bucket bags in store at the moment for about €10. Can’t say no to that 😉 I’m a personal fan of this green and black one and they also have a lovely black fringed one.
So far I haven’t bought any bucket bags but something tells me it won’t be long before I own one! I will have to part with a few of my rucksacks first if that’s even possible… Thanks for reading my blog as always. If you like the blog, please support it on Facebook here.
