Expensive Vs cheap and my new work bag: the backpack

Jigsaw jacket, Cos dress, Marks and Spencers backpack, Top Shop boots
After one week travelling to my new office and logging around laptop, chargers, Ipad, magazines and more often than not a shoe change in case of a meeting, I decided I need to get a backpack to give my shoulders a break. Now I wasn't going to spend a fortune on a backpack as for me it's not a trend led buy but merely a practical one, but I still want it to look chic.  So as I was looking for the one for me I fell in love with a Proenza style on Net-a-Porter that sadly was a little bit out of my budget at £1,475... Feeling a bit defeated I was inspired to bring back a series of Cheap Vs Expensive and once again I found a great alternative from Marks and Spencer. Now I put all my things in it and carry a small tote with my laptop in it - what a relief!


Some of my at work-inspired Cheap Vs Expensive buys - legwork done for you! (The cropped top is to be worn with high waist skirts and culottes - I promise it's a super sleek look and you can't see your tummy. Try to believe)

Proenza Schouler PS leather backpack £1,475 OR Leather rucksack £99 Marks and Spencers
