I have no regrets.
I first spied it in my Ipswich branch a few months ago whilst on a last-minute hunt for a rucksack the night before I flew to New Orleans for Trek America, and whilst they didn’t have anything suitable for that, they did have this.
It finally came into my life a few days ago as I’m working on some campaign stuff for Matalan (there’s a haul video on YouTube over here if that’s your thang) and am already obsessed with how much I can fit in it.
MY CAMERA DOESN’T MAKE IT BULGE AGGRESSIVELY.
It’s already home to about five lip products, a flier about a Pancake Day event, and a good smattering of receipts, so there’s that.
And yes, there’s no denying it’s got a few similarities with the ol’ blogger favourite, the Chloe Faye, but if you haven’t got a sneaky £1,200 to splurge on the real deal, it’s a pretty fantastic dupe that won’t leave you eating Pot Noodles for the rest of 2017.
Peace out, boo thangs.
P.S. Something’s gone wrong in the back end of my blog and it will not for the life of me let me just input a Matalan link – it’s desperate to change it into some weird affiliate link that won’t work, so if any of these links don’t work for you – just go direct to Matalan’s website and have a little search!
