Happy Thursday guys!
So, I’ve been getting a LOT of questions lately about Cult Gaia’s “Gaia’s Ark” bag–that I wear in, ahem, approximately every other post. (I’M SORRRYYY but it’s just so cute! Also I own like 4 bags total. This is one of them, so you know it’s worth it–promise.) I figured, why not do a little Q&A on it so you can get ALL your questions answered in one place?
How can I get my hands on it when it sells out so fast?
This is a great question. Certain retailers do stock it from time to time but they sell out like HOTTT cakes. The best way to get your hands on a Gaia’s Ark bag is to pre-order one through their website directly. It looks like the latest order will ship out before mid-July, so you don’t have to wait too long! I would order ASAP so you can still get in on the next shipment.
Do you have the large or small size?
I have the large size! I think it’s the perfect size because I can fit my full-sized wallet, sunglasses case, and a little makeup bag in it with no trouble. The smaller size I would equate to more of a clutch. Update: Diana says that she has the small and it fits more than a clutch–her phone, wallet, keys all fit no problem!
Is it fragile?
Despite how it looks, it’s actually very sturdy. I haven’t had any problems with it, and I’m kind of clumsy, so if anyone were going to break it, let’s be honest–it would probably be me. The bamboo is pretty thick so I don’t think you have to worry about that!
Does stuff fall out of it?
I mean, don’t throw your loose credit cards in it–then you might have problems, but other than that–no, nothing falls out of it. I throw loose lipsticks in there all the time and the slats are far too close together to let anything slip through.
Can you see through it and see all your stuff?
Actually, you can’t! It looks like it would be see through, but it isn’t! In half these photos, my wallet and phone and keys were in the bag, but I bet you can’t tell which one’s, can you? 😉
How do you pack it in your suitcase without damaging it?
Super easy trick! Pack it in the box that it comes in. You can be super efficient and pack socks, undies, scarves, t-shirts, anything small in the back and stuff them around the bag inside the box so you don’t lose any space. I’ve even packed it this way in my carry-on and was still able to fit everything I needed in it!
I can’t decide–is it cute or does it look like a hamster contraption?
Ah, this is the question. I believe both. Your husband will probably only think the latter, but you don’t dress for him anyway, do you?
Will I actually use wear it on a regular basis?
Yes! I really do use this for just about every occasion. I’ve worn it to weddings, out to dinner, to brunch–pretty much everywhere! (I promise I don’t only wear it as a prop for photos, haha!) I love love this bag, and I think it makes any outfit look so much cuter!
That’s all folks! If you want to pull the trigger, you can pop on over here to pre-order yours–the next shipment goes out in July (And no, haha! They aren’t sponsoring this in any way!)
