Lifestyle | Cath Kidston Blue Peony Blossom Print Rucksack

Thursday, January 25, 2018

I’ve been a Cath Kidston fan for as long as I can remember but I don’t often buy from there as it’s above my usual price point if I’m being honest. There is also there is so many prints to choose from I can’t make my mind up and finally I don’t always like buying from somewhere, where it is so obvious that it’s that brand. Next can be a bit like that.

Between Christmas and New Year, I did see a lot of adverts for sales and further reductions so like anyone would I clicked on the link and fell in love.

I had spotted this peony print backpack in the pop-up concession in Manchester Arndale when I’d been Christmas shopping but at that time I was so annoyed they didn’t have the alphabet mugs with the initials I wanted I bit my nose off and wouldn’t buy anything from them! I’m a Taurus this should explain a lot.

The bag had been reduced to £26 and I reasoned I’d pay this much in TK Maxx for a backpack (My life’s reference point)

It has a wire frame around the opening and this can make it tricky to open and close on the go, but at this point, I’ve only used it a couple of times and I think in time this will be easier / I will work out a way of doing it easier.

There is also an internal zip pocket and 2 small pouch pockets inside and as well as the outside pocket with a flap closure there are also 2 pockets on the side which would hold a water bottle or similar, but these don’t have any fastenings.

Peonies are one of my favourite flowers, so this print is perfect for me and I like that it doesn’t automatically scream “I’m a Cath Kidston bag” there is a nod to the brand with the oilcloth style fabric and it has a fairly obvious label on the outside but from a distance I don’t think you would easily guess the brand. That might be me trying to kid myself and I do love a lot from the brand including all the really obvious CK prints but I just don’t know if I want to own them all.
I am very taken with a lot of the Disney range, sadly the clothing only goes to a size 16 and were some great tops in the sale for a good price, but I know there is no point even trying to fit into them.

  1. I love Cath Kidston bags too - but I know exactly what you mean about the print. It's like Per Una from M&S, you can spot that a mile off :-) Even so, I do have my fair share of spotted & Disney Cath Kidston bags, I just can't resist. If they ever do plus size, I will be bankrupt!!!

    1. I can spot next clothing a mile off and I don't even go in regularly!! Nothing against next. I like a lot of their stuff but it's easily recognisable! I'm lovely the ckxdisney still. I might have placed a second order ops!!!
