You know that adage “If you love something, buy it twice”? That is an actual motto, isn’t it? Well, it should be, and especially when it applies to this Oasis reversible shopper.
I bought this shopper a month or so ago in this beige/bright yellowy-green and have been getting my money’s worth from it. It’s bright and spring-like and is perfect for perking up both an outfit and my mood (the weather has been terrible, with the country recording the wettest May in 200 years).
The Oasis reversible shopper includes an inner bag, in the bright yellowy-green in this case, as well as a small purse on a strap that can be clipped on either to the shopper or the inner bag.
At the time I had umm-ed and ahh-ed over whether to buy this colour or the beige/bright pink version. In the end, I think I made the better choice. But the idea of a pink one lingered on.
Roll on a month or so, to last week, and I popped into the Oasis store here in the city on my lunch break and what did I find? A beige/light dusky pink version. And add a 20% off discount for everything in store that day: perfect.
I know that I am going to get so much use out of this shopper on summer holidays too. You can throw so much in it, and by using the inner bag can keep purses, phones, keys etc away from swimming costumes, towels and all of the other summer paraphernalia that you tend to throw into your bag on a day out. I think too that this could make a good nappy/diaper bag if you don’t need too many different compartments and pockets.
Verdict: the Oasis reversible shopper is an all-round brilliant summer bag. So good that I had to buy it twice.
