Back to School

I’m sure many if not all of you are dreading the return back to school in a few weeks. I know I’m definitely not looking forward to waking up early in the morning, forcing myself to look presentable in front of my incredibly stylish fashion communications class, and lugging my laptop and/or illustration materials (ie evil rolls of very large paper) 1.5 hours downtown. Luckily, Goodkoop blessed me with this spacious new schoolbag in a bright magenta vegan leather to carry my laptop and put some colour in my otherwise sad and grey days.

Goodkoop is an online store with a very different concept from others. They are dedicated to bringing customers practical, up-to-the-minute fashions without the middleman mark-up. This means everything is affordable and still handpicked to the highest quality that price can offer.

My bag, for example, is made of a stiff vegan leather, meaning it doesn’t fold or buckle in weird places and doesn’t wear down easily like other faux materials. The only downside I found is the handle that was originally placed on the top of the bag… Personally, it made the bag look too busy with all its buckles and doodads, so I removed it with a pair of scissors and a careful eye.

In its pop colour, it’s also easily wearable with any almost-neutral outfit. I wore it here before I went to lunch with my boyfriend and picture-taking slave Justin. Super bright super fun super cute. Til next time!!!
