Straw and wooden style bags are a big hit this Spring/Summer and if you don’t want to pay the price tag of the Cult Gaia Ark Bamboo Bag that everyone is talking about, then I have found the perfect designer alternative.
This chic half circle bag, handmade from Bamboo, just screams French Riviera vibes and for just £28.99 from a fantastic eBay seller, I couldn’t say no.
The Cult Gaia Ark Bag has been seen on many celebs, including the beautiful Jessica Alba but I just couldn’t justify the price and when I came across Katelavie’s Instagram feed I just loved how she styled the bag. I instantly wanted to recreate a similar look and I’m so happy I managed to get my hands on the bag of the season at a fraction of the price.
I have a Wedding coming up in Cyprus toward the end of the year and it will make the perfect clutch to go with my outfit!
I love how versatile and statement this bag is. I’ve been teaming it with white culotte trousers and a simple floral cami top; adding this bag just makes any outfit effortlessly stylish.
This bag is also available in a variety of shades. I opted for the natural beige but I’m tempted to get it in the white too as I already know this is going to be a staple in my wardrobe. The neutral shade also makes it versatile enough to be teamed with pretty much any outfit, from a flowy beach dress on those summer vacay’s to a simple tee and jeans for lunch with the girls. This is a bag that goes with everything and is perfect for any occasion.
Not only is the bag a delight to look at, it’s also lightweight and roomy enough to carry everything I need. It comes in 2 sizes; I chose to go with the small and it’s the perfect size to fit my necessities in.
It’s different to any bag I’ve ever owned and I can’t wait for the sun to start shining so I can start wearing it. It really is an eye catcher!
Another way I’ve chosen to style the bag is by popping a satin paisley print scarf around the handle and tied into a bow. This gives the bag a more boho, casual vibe and I’m 100% down for that look.
