Forever New Bag: Zara Office City Bag Dupe

I'm sure you've all laid eyes on the famous Zara Office City Bag. It's pretty well known in the blogging world and I've wanted it for absolutely ages. Unfortunately there isn't a Zara here in Perth (and they don't ship here either!) so I thought I would never be able to own my own. That was until I spotted this bag in my local Forever New.

This bag is just like the Zara version, black with gold hardware, however it doesn't have the purple interior (it's black through out). As you can see from the snaps above, it's very large but I find that it's perfect for uni. With five main sections, three with zips and two with poppers, there literally is room for everything. The middle zip section is padded so I use that for my Macbook. The other sections are the perfect size for all my books. There is also a smaller padded section inside, made for an iPad or tablet which is really handy. My tablet is slightly too big to fit in this little pocket so I use it for my valuables (phone, wallet etc.).

This bag is pretty heavy but I love it so much that I'm willing to deal with it! It comes with both a short and long strap although I tend to only use the shorter one. I can't seem to find this on the Forever New site, but from memory it's available in black (obviously) and white, and was only $70. That may seem like quite a lot but it's a bag I've been lusting after for ages and I've already been able to get so much use out of it (plus so many compliments!).

I think I may have found my dream bag! Do you own the Zara Office City Bag? Or maybe even this version? I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. I love the bag, I could also call it my "dream bag". it's perfect! xx

    This looks amazing! I don't know Forever new but i'd love to see more of them x

  5. that looks even better. I shelled out far too much money for the office bag on ebay, and the handles are really short - so you shove heavy laptops in it and then can't sling it over your shoulder :(
    Might have to sell it on and grab this one instead!

  6. ooh I might check this out! looks gorgeous :)

  7. Hi! I just discovered your blog and totally liked it! I read all your posts and I wish there were more.. :)
    Do you mind if we follow each other? I am already following this blog. I'd be so happy if you could follow me back or at least check out my little blog:) have a nice day!

  8. This is super cute! I love a nice handbag, great post! :)


  9. wow..that is one big bag...looks confy though and enough space for the weekday pile


  10. I don't own either but they both look wonderful! I can't carry such heavy bags around (I'm too damn weak!) but I would love the original Zara bag its gorgeous :)

  11. That bag looks so chic! I've not seen the zara version but I really like the one you have! I always hear/see people with cute bags from zara but have never purchased or even really looked at bags when shopping there! Also, not sure if you've done one yet but I tagged you in the liebster award here on my blog :)

  12. Love the bag and your blog!

  13. I've never heard of forever new, but I love the look of this bag! The quilting looks great and so does the size.

  14. This bag is beautiful, I prefer this to the Zara one as I love quilted bags.
