Upon watching a re-run of the Vampire Diaries’ pilot episode, I instantly caught a glimpse at the messenger style, cross body bag that Elena Gilbert (played by Nina Dobrev) was carrying at one scene and it instantly roused my curiosity. At first glance, the bag looks stunning and exudes that rugged, vintage appeal which has been a pretty understated trend in the maelstrom of glitter and glam preferred by most contemporary Hollywood stars.

Soon enough I found myself searching the World Wide Web for the bag profusely, and after a series of neck twisting, to and fro glances at my computer screen and the frozen, paused image on my TV screen, I found out that the bag is from Lucky Brand, and dubbed as the nostalgic, “Abbey Road” bag.

Deviating from the leather cross body handbags of today, the Abbey Road is a messenger style, fold-over bag with dual handles for an easy reach inside its deep compartment. It also has an external zipper pocket to let you get a hold of personal necessities like your cell phone and wallet instantly, without worrying about its safety.
Ultraviolet and Perforated Versions
Spacious enough to store your laptop, a copy of your favorite magazine, and even some spare clothes for changing, the depth of this bag’s compartment is formidable. There are also a couple of multifunctional slip pockets inside, as well as a zip pocket to carry your sensitive, female necessities. What’s even better is that this lamb-leather made, stylish bag comes in different colors, like off-white, dune, ultraviolet, bourbon, dusty leather, and even a perforated version to match your taste, however distinct it may be.
