I've admired this Zara plaited shopper from afar–as in on other bloggers and celebs–and up close–meaning on store shelves–for a long time. It's not hard to see why: super pigmented leather, simple lines, minimal hardware, and top handles make it pretty much my ideal handbag. Still, I never took the plunge to pick one up for myself. Lucky for me, my boyfriend likes buying me handbags as much as I like talking about them to him. A discussion one day about how long/hard I had been lusting over this one led to it arriving on my doorstep a few days later. Pretty amazing, right? (And yes I'm talking about both him and the shopper.)
