The Style Edit: The eBay Bag

For this post I'm heading back a few years to my first ever eBay purchase - and only purchase to date - to tell the tale of how I got my hands on one heck of a bargain. Here goes..

A few summers ago rucksacks were everywhere. Printed, Fabric, Leather, and I desperately wanted a little leather rucksack of my own. I wasn't willing to pay heaps for it, I always have a budget in mind, so that's when I decided to hit up eBay for a potential first time bargain. 
I wanted a piece that was:
A. Not too big.
B. Not too pricey.
C. Plain leather. A Black or tan colour so I knew it would be easy to dress, unlike a pattern, and would be a timeless addition to my wardrobe.
A lot of the bags listed were hittin' up £60/£70 pounds. (Oh hell no) But this little gem was around the £20 mark and it was love. Not just because of the price, but because it was made from real Italian leather. Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner.

The rucksack is still going strong, bar the lining coming out on the inside and slight distress on the front of the bag, but this just adds to the vintage appeal, does it not? The trusty rucksack comes out of my wardrobe every summer as its a piece that goes with everything. Shorts, dresses, prints, denim, the possibilities are well and truly endless...
