Bucket advice

"We give advice by the bucket, but take it by the grain"
- William R Alger

Tara and I received another lovely gift from Yeswalker.com the other day. This time an amazing electric blue bucket bag.
Bucket bags sure have grown on me, when they first appeared n the runway I was a little skeptical.I think in ways they just reminded me of 
bucket hats (ahhh horror memories from my primary school uniform *shudder*). But I can now happily say, bucket bags are my new best friend. 
I swear they are the perfect size, you can easily get everything you need in there, yet it doesn't come off looking big and bulky.


Bag c/o yeswalker

For styling the bag I paired it with blue coloured shoes borrowed from Tara, going for the classic matching-accessories-look.
I also wanted to show of this green baby that I bought about a month ago from Savemart. 
It was originally from Glassons for around $60 and I got it in mint condition for $10, score!

Anyone else invested in a bucket bag recently? Comment below!
