The Look For Less: Structured Backpack
Let my sore shoulders rejoice! Backpacks are finally back in style! If you know me at all, then you know that my purse practically weighs about five million pounds (give or take), and I always tend to carry it on the same side. I've seen a chiropractor and was told how horrible this was for my back, neck, and shoulders...but alas, fashion came first and I did not listen.
But that's all changed. I can now carry my belongings evenly distributed across my back, and look fabulous!
This season, backpacks are everywhere. Personally, I like a nice, structured bag in a neutral color--I'll simply get more use out of it. But how much cash is this body conscious bag worth?
Pictured above are two nearly identical backpacks with one big difference: price, of course. On the left is Proenza Schouler's PS Courier Small Backpack, which retails for $1,675. Pretty pricey, right?! I'm sure the quality is great, blah blah blah, but even if I had the extra cash to purchase such a bag, chances are I'd use it for a vacation or on a shopping spree at Target. There's got to be a better way! (Spoiler: there is). The bag on the right is the Structured Faux Leather Backpack from Forever 21. It costs a low $33 normally, but is currently on sale for $20. EEEEeeeee!!!
Which bag you buy is up to you, but my advice? When it comes to a trendy fashion accessory, go for the cheaper option. You never know when it'll go out of style, and no one wants to be stuck with a pile of stuff that's outdated.
