Bita.Bella Styled - Shaffer LA Bucket Bag

As a handbag enthusiast, I'm constantly on the hunt for the next bag I want to purchase. I always gear towards more simple, neutral and clean cut bags that never go out of style because they will match almost everything in my closet. I'm typically not one to purchase a bag style that's too trendy because one day they're in, and the next day they're out (Heidi Klum, anyone?!). However, that thought process completely changed upon receiving my very first bucket bag from my Rachel Zoe Box of Style. 

Like I said in my earlier post, I’m obsessed with this bucket bag from Shaffer LA. These bags are not only fun but they are also hot hot HOT this season! It's trendy while embracing a classic style that can be worn throughout the year. Looking at the Shaffer LA bucket bag, it looks small, but it actually has a lot of space to fit all your essentials. My only advice is to keep your items in a small makeup bag and put that in the bucket bag. Because this bag doesn’t have a zipper at the top, you don’t want to worry about your belongings falling out of your purse and or risk losing something. 

I’ve worn this bag a few times since I received it and really like it. My most coveted look with this bag was very casual and comfortable. I paired it with my Mia mid-rise blue jeans from Express, a navy blue and white and black stripe Zara knit top and rose gold accessories (Monica Vinader Fiji Friendship Bracelet and a Mini Marc rose gold Marc Jacobs watch). It’s a very put together outfit that’s perfect for both running errands on the weekend and going to lunch with friends.
