Inside My Katya Komarova Bag

When purchasing a handbag, there are many important factors to consider to determine which is best for you and your needs. Your considerations may include colour, hardware, handle or strap length and the size of the bag. We’ve put together a guide for what fits inside our Katya Komarova handbags, whether you’re looking for a handbag for a night out, one for every day wear or one that fits everything you need to take to work. This guide will make you feel confident about buying bags online.

Oversized Shoulder Bag

Our newest family member at Katya Komarova is our Oversized Shoulder Bag. I designed it after receiving a lot of requests for a laptop bag. This bag is very spacious and is designed for you to take to work and fit everything you need for the day. Let’s take a look at what I put in my bag so you get an idea of the space it provides. For work, I bring:

  • Reusable water bottle
  • Cosmetics bag
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Headphones
  • Wallet
  • Keys
  • Diary
  • Laptop
  • Phone charger and laptop charger
  • Phone
  • Lunch/snacks

My laptop is a 13” Mac, however there is more room to fit a larger laptop. If your laptop is bigger than mine and you’d like to check if it will fit, the dimensions of the bag are as follows: depth is 10cm, height is 43cm and width is 28cm.

The great thing about the Oversized Shoulder Bag is it’s also great for weekend getaways as you can fit more than your normal medium sized handbag. You will be able to fit your essentials like your phone, wallet, cosmetics bag, headphones and diary, plus some extra clothing. The bag is unisex as the details are quite understated, therefore you may have to keep your boyfriend or partner from using it too!

The Oversized Shoulder Bag is available in Black, Brown and Tan with all of our extra handles and strap options plus our new Braided Black Leather Handle meaning you can wear this bag over your shoulder or cross body with the adjustable cotton straps.

Bucket Bag

Bucket Bag in Black with Black Cotton Strap

The Bucket Bag is the perfect everyday bag, whether you’re running errands, going shopping, heading out with the kids or catching up with the girls for brunch. Here’s a guide for what you can fit in our Bucket Bag:

  • Phone
  • Wallet
  • Keys
  • Coffee keep cup
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Headphones
  • Small diary/book
  • Snacks

While you’re running errands or want to be hands-free, we recommend pairing your Bucket Bag with a cotton strap so it can be worn over your shoulder or cross-body. For outings like brunch with the girls, a ring handle adds that extra style element. The drawstring makes the inside of the bag easily accessible for when you’re on the go and the flat bottom allows the Bucket Bag to sit upright without falling over - in case you want to sit it on the table and show it off at brunch.

The Bucket Bag is also great while travelling as you can fit all your essentials inside plus you will still have room for things like a book for the plane or road trip, or some snacks/toys for the kids.

Mini Mono Purse

Our Mini Mono Purse is ideal for a night out to fit all of your essentials including:

  • Small wallet or card holder
  • Lipstick
  • Small mirror
  • Keys
  • A set of tissues
  • Small hand cream

If you’re like us, you probably always have your phone in your hand anyway! The Mini Mono Purse can be worn as a shoulder bag, cross-body, as a bum bag or carry it in your hand with one of our handles.

If you love the mini bag look but are the type of person to always carry around more than just the essentials, you can combine this bag with our Mono Purse with a cotton strap or the Oversized Shoulder Bag for a double bag look. This will ensure all of your essentials are quick and easy to find. If you’re going out after work, you can detach your Mini Mono Purse from your other bag, like your Oversized Shoulder Bag, and just take that Mini out to dinner and drinks.

Mono Purse

Mono Purse in Black with Black Cotton Strap

The Mono Purse is an amazing daily bag or clutch for a night out. It will fit all of your essentials including: 

  • Wallet or card holder
  • Phone
  • Keys
  • Lipstick
  • Small mirror
  • A set of tissues
  • Small hand cream
  • Hand sanitiser

The beauty of the Mono Purse is that it can be worn as a shoulder bag, cross-body, as a bum bag, or even wear it as a harness by adding a Wide Cotton Strap. The Mono Purse is a classic in Black, Brown or Tan with a matching Cotton Strap or personalise it with a Fur Handle, Ring Handle or a contrasting colour Cotton Strap. It’s a great bag to take from day to night as it’s big enough to fit your daily essentials but also still elegant when worn with a dress or for a night out.

On-Duty Bag

As the name suggests, our On-Duty Bag is another bag that is designed for you to take to work. As a guide, it will fit the following:

  • Small laptop or tablet computer
  • Book or diary
  • Coffee keep cup
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Headphones
  • Phone
  • Wallet
  • Keys
  • Lunch/snacks

The minimalist design means it’s perfect for both men and women to take to work and meetings, making it a great present for your partner. The On-Duty Bag is also great for off-duty days while running errands or shopping as you can store things you pick up throughout the day. You can wear the bag with both a handle, like our White or Nude Leather Handle, and a Cotton Strap so you can choose how it’s most comfortable throughout the day. We love our On-Duty Bag paired with a Mini Mono Purse in the same matching colour, it looks so chic and classy.

Phone Bag

Phone Bag in Brown with Square Ring Handle

Our Phone Bag is another take on a mini bag, however this time you can also fit your phone inside! Here’s what we like to store inside ours:

  • Phone
  • Small wallet or card holder
  • Lipstick
  • Small mirror
  • Keys
  • Set of tissues
  • Small hand cream

The Phone Bag is our modern design take on a small handbag. It’s ideal for days when you don’t need to carry much with you or nights out when you want to be able to store your phone securely in your bag. It’s sophisticated when paired with our Ring Handles or Leather handles and hands-free and functional when paired with our Cotton Straps. We enjoy pairing our Phone Bag with a Mono Purse or Mini Mono Purse for that utility look or with a bigger bag like our Oversized Shoulder Bag for extra space and detachability for lunch-time outings.

We hope that this guide helps you feel more confident in choosing the best bag for you and your lifestyle and makes you feel more confident about buying bags online. Of course, if you have any questions about our bags or want to know if it will fit a particular item that you own, please feel free to get in touch, either via Instagram or email us at info@katyakomarova.com, we’d be happy to help!
