Just like most fashion bloggers, Cath and I have drooled over all things Alexander Wang for the past three season. Most of his trends aren't our personal style, but it doesn't mean we don't have delusions of wearing black mesh and oversized tees and sweaters everyday.
This brings me to The Backpack.
I was trolling around Urban yesterday (another tumble from the recessionista bandwagon indeed), and I spotted IT. I didn't realize it was a backpack, just that it was big and smushy with zippers. In short, everything a perfect bag should be. Upon closer inspection I noticed its similarities to Mr. Wang's backpack- but even better! For starters, it's still fairly wallet-friendly (if anything still is- gulp!). The U.O. version also has thicker (i.e. friendlier) straps- helpful to fellow book-luggers.
For those of you who also have dreams of Alexander Wang tee-filled closets, but can't foot the hundreds of dollars- make due with Wang-esque accessory in the form of a practical, roomy backpack. Pick it up here.
