Russell & Bromley KATIE Shopper DUPE

 I came across this BEAUTY of a bag recently and almost cried when I saw the price.. £195 at Russell & Bromley. The soft luxurious black leather unstructured shopper has double top handles and a simple strap across the top adding to the simple design. 

With a floral inner lining and zip close centre, its big enough for all your handbag essentials. 34cm wide, 27cm tall and a handle drop of 20cm, it can fit perfectly over your shoulder or in the crook of your arm (where most of my handbags sit).

It comes in a range of colours too; Black, Tan, Navy, Cream and Burgundy.

Obviously, being leather, justifies the price. But if you're on a tight budget but still want to have this beaut hanging off your arm, I've found the answer!

Whilst looking for items to add to the Christmas Gift Guide for Sisters, I found a Dupe! I couldn't be happier! And what's more.. the Dupe is actually BETTER and more versatile and obviously.. a LOT cheaper! This Reversible Contrast Shopper from Zara for £29.99.

With a similar shape and fastening detail, this bag is a mere fraction of the price, but there's a feature that makes it better than the R&B one (well I think anyway)... as the name suggests; its reversible! You can turn them inside out if you fancy change or want to add a colour pop to your outfit!

Made of Polyurethane, it's not as good quality material as leather, but from my experience with Zara bags, they're still very long lasting so long as you treat them with care. 

This bag comes in a range of colours also.

Navy Blue / Mustard Yellow, Black / Burgundy and Taupe / Orange.

Definitely adding to my Christmas this year! (Although I would still LOVE the R&B one!)
Have you got this bag? What are your thoughts on Zara's bag durability?
