Have you seen Zara's version of the Bottega Veneta Pouch?  I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I spotted it whilst just casually browsing through the website and was surprisingly shocked to find my favourite brand had brought out their very own version.

The Bottega Veneta pouch bag has a somewhat vintage vibe.  It reminds me of those granny bags but a more stylish one at that.  With its slouchy oversized look, it still looks sophisticated and grown up but the soft leather structure means it also adds a touch of laid back glamour too.

But at a hefty price tag just short of £2000 it's not something many of us, me included, can snap up in a flash.  Which is why the Zara bag, a much better quality and well made lookalike than those cheaper knock offs is a great alternative.  At a modest price tag of £89.99, admittedly not the cheapest price for a bag but definitely a more affordable one.

And if you're on the lookout for a colourful version to add a hint of spice to your wardrobe, there's plenty to choose from and not surprisingly Zara have their very own two tone yellow and cream version too.
