There’s a huge waiting list for this sell-out handbag

Finding a bag that’s perfectly on-trend, gorgeous and affordable can be near impossible. In fact, most ‘it’ bags are designers staples worth more than your average mortgage. But what if we told you we’d found a popular, purse-friendly alternative?

Online store Charles & Keith have released the ultimate piece of arm candy this season that looks just as luxurious and glossy as its fashion-house counterparts but comes with a much more accessible price tag.

Sold for just £69, the popular bucket shape bag comes with wristlet detail and a very convincing faux leather finish. It’s chic, easy to style and comes in four different colour ways: white, cognac, tan and a mock croc black – the latter has proven to be the biggest hit, perhaps because it looks the most expensive.

The Whistlet Handle Bucket Bag is also accompanied by a detatchable pouch and long strap.

Unfortunately, the bag is currently sold out (which by the way, we totally understand – who wouldn’t want to get their hands on it?) but there’s still some good news. Charles and Keith have put on a waiting list for keen customers so they can sign up and get an alert once the bag is back in stock. All you have to do is add your name and keep an eye out on your e-mail inbox – we’ve checked with Charles & Keith, and the bag is due to be restocked in mid November.

In the meantime, why not browse the equally stylish ‘new in’ seasonal pieces at Zara? To help you out, insiders at the high street giant have just revealed the best days to shop at Zara to make sure you secure all of the best stock for impressively low prices.

‘Depending where you’re from, it’s usually Mondays and Thursdays,’ they told Who What Wear. ‘Staff are there at 7am/8am opening boxes so new stuff will be hitting the shop floor by 9.30am, so Monday and Thursday mornings are the best time to get your hands on sizes and Saturday naturally the worst!’
