So my fake Jansport school bag is kind of… dying, in places no one really notices but me. Why fake? Because I bought it on a whim in one of my many trips to 168. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s been a loyal companion to me over the past year, but it’s also bothered me in certain ways; like how the front zipper almost always magically never stays closed, and the little pocket of cloth probably for laptops that I used to store my jackets to school in, are starting to tear. Moreover, I realized just how… BAD the pattern was. So I decided it was time for a switch and I decided to go with the rucksack as my next target.
I’ve always found the rucksack style VERY VERY adorable. It fits my personality to a T because it has that sophisticated yet kiddy feel to it. Add to that, I love the VINTAGE NAUTICAL FACTOR. I basically spent my whole afternoon looking for ones that I could afford. I started with Topman, but ended up almost fainting at the prices, and ultimately not really loving the styles. So I just Googled my way to the finish line, so to speak.
It’s amazing what you can find if you know the right words to type on the search bar. I came up with this store:
I knew this was going to be one of my new favorite stores from the moment I looked through its catalogue. From classy simple tops to vintage-y shoes to, drum roll please, amazing rucksacks.
Now, I’ve narrowed it down to three finalists, and I really can’t decide whether to go with Gaff (Navy Blue), Boom (Beige), or Deck (Cream). This bag at 999php is a steal, compared to Topman’s which are 2700php. (INSANE, right?) Comment below and tell me what you think suits me the best! I’d really love to know what you guys would recommend.
