I thought today I would talk about my beautiful Ted Baker Ikon bag that I received from my lovely sister for my birthday!
Now I do like my bags and own quite a few (not too many mind - around 9) but I like them roomy so I can throw all my junk in them but I am not really a fan of different compartments and pockets. So something like this is perfect for me! However the one draw back is that it hasn't got a zip at the top, it's just open, so not that safe really... though I do still use this as a bag and put my keys, phone, purse in to it and just make sure to keep my arm closed over the top of the bag. However this is literally a perfect bag if you are a student with textbooks and files (it will easily fit A4 folders in it) or if you just want a really good quality weekend/shopping bag.
As for the price it is an affordable £35 especially for Ted Baker - some of their makeup bag are around the £30 mark. Plus there are so many different design that come out seasonally, so you may find that after a year or so it will be impossible to find that same design again. Or you can go for a solid colour Ikon bag with a nice bow. Really there are a lot of sizes and designs for this range. John Lewis do stock a good range here with special limited edition ones at the moment (I LOVE the Fan of Japan one here) or ASOS are very good for them as well.
So it you are after a posher tote bag that isn't just made of canvas then this is the range to look at!
I really do love mine!
