[ I was kindly gifted the Gaston Luga Classy bag in return for an honest review ]
Handbags are beautiful but not always practical. Sometimes you just need a backpack to carry everything. I usually chuck everything into my old uni backpack – a khaki green, not very stylish bag however, now it is being shunned for this new beauty!
WHO ARE GASTON LUGA?
Gaston Luga are a Swedish backpack retailer located in the heart of Stockholm and specialise in creating beautiful, simplistic, high quality bags. With 7 different styles to choose from in a variety of sizes and colours, it will not be easy for you to chose which one to go for!
THE CLASSY BAG
I opted for the Classy style bag in all black. I was instantly drawn to this bag firstly due it’s size. It felt like the perfect size for an everyday bag. It is made from durable canvas and has PU leather accents along with a touch of gold hardware. The lining of this bag is a stunning burgundy colour that definitely adds to the luxury feel.
You will also find a laptop pouch in this bag which will fit most 11-13inch laptops. This is absolutely perfect for when I’m blogging on the go. I just wish I had this while I was at uni! Even when the bag is full it does not weigh down on your shoulders or dig in like other bags can.
FASHION OVER FUNCTIONALITY?
Usually with backpacks you have to chose from a fashionable looking bag and a functional one. Not with this one! The all black, chic look allows you to effortlessly style this with any outfit! I’ve been pushing this bag to it’s absolute limits and found that I can fit; my trainers, gymwear, camera, purse, notebook, make-up bag and even my water bottle too! Definitely way more than I could fit into even my biggest handbag!
This bag is also great for when I have blogging events after work because again it means I can carry everything I need to transform from day to night without compromising the fashion aspect of my look. I truly cannot sing this bags praises any louder!!
So my only real gripe with this bag is that there was no added pockets to store little bits and bobs. Ya know, your keys, lipsticks all that jazz! BUT. Gaston Luga got it covered. Each order comes with a clear Airlig Travel Bag! Of course this is great for when you are actually travelling but for me I love it for storing those important bits and bobs that often get lost in the bottom of your bag!
