Matchup Monday: Zara v. Mansur Gavriel

Matchup Monday: The Bucket Bag
Somewhat surprisingly, one of the biggest trends right now is the bucket bag. Despite my surprise, I've always actually had a thing for them. I'm unsure if it's because they sort of sport an old lady vibe or because I simply find them unusual, but I remember swooning over this style back in middle school. Everyone knows Mansur Gavriel purses are to die for, but would Zara's MG-inspired bag fit the bill (in more ways than one) just fine?

I'm a bit greedy. I want the Mansur. 
(Although The Row's version is definitely my fantasy choice.)

  1. I would definitely go for the Mansur!


  2. Love posts like this - I definitely usually opt for the more affordable option.

  3. Although I'm really obsessed with the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, I have to admit that the Zara alternative is pretty cool!

  5. Zara one looks good and the price point is fantastic, but maaaaan the I'm gonna have to go with the Mansur Gavriel. The quality and workmanship is just soooo much better compared to Zara.

  7. I'm such a lover of the Mansur Graviel model! The Zara version is also pretty, but I just can't stop thinking about the original one. Now following you on gfc and bloglovin.
