No Lie—This £15 Handbag Is the Best Thing I’ve Bought This Year

As you’ll soon discover, I could talk about bags all day long. Along with the various trending styles and statement bags I’ve accumulated, there’s a special place in my heart for bags that combine utility and style. And this Uniqlo bag ticks both of these off. Even better, it comes in at under £15. But trust me, there’s plenty more to love about this handbag. 

When I first saw the Uniqlo crossbody trending on TikTok, I figured it was simple, sleek and useful. When I bought it, I realised there was much more to it than first meets the eye. Firstly, the rounded shape and soft construction are perfect for running errands, going to work, and basically any plans you have. Secondly, you’ll find two pockets inside to keep the essentials (read: Lipbalm) close to hand. Finally, and most importantly, the size is incredibly deceptive. As someone that tends to overpack for even a simple coffee run, this bag fits far more than you’d ever guess. Things I’ve fit into this bag include; an umbrella, my full makeup bag, and my greatest achievement, a full size Pret baguette plus ginger shot. So, if you’re looking for a minimalist, understated bag that does more, this little bag ticks all the boxes. Plus, it comes in an array of rainbow colours.
