So, did you get the memo? It's National Handbag Day, and if that isn't excuse to bloody treat yourself, I don't know what is? After spending a few moments this morning appreciating the loves in my life (my bags) I realised I had never properly introduced you to my pride and joy, my Saint Laurent "Monogram" Cross Body Bag. Minus a few Instagram snaps here and there, I haven't really given it the time to shine, so, with that in mind, and it being National Handbag day - I guess it was a no- brainer - Come say Hello, won't ya?.
When investing in designer, I think it is important (unless your WELL RICH) to think about a few pointers, like at least be a lil' bit adult, and yano, sensible (boring).
Think about how much wear will I actually get out of it? Is it a seasonal bag that I will tire of by the end of the year? Or is it a classic bag that will never go out of style. It comes down to what you want to get out of it really.
For me, I wanted something Classic (hence the black), that was easy to wear (changeable cross-body strap), and something I just bloody LOVED (just look at it!).
I love the embossed Croc-print of the bag, not only for the way it looks, but I also think it makes it more wearable. If you get the odd scratch, it is much more likely to go unnoticed compared to how it would look on plain, soft leather. Also the detachable strap means I can use it as a clutch bag if desired (to be honest I never do that though, why carry it yourself when there is a strap to do it for you? I'm ok thanks)
Inside the bag there are two handy compartments, a zipped pouch and also some card slots. This makes it a perfect evening bag. I use this for going out for drinks, for meals and for special occasions. Admittedly, it isn't a bag you could throw everything into, as it can't fit too much, but I didn't buy it for an everyday bag - I brought it as a special occasion bag. Special occasions like Oooh COCKTAILS (The YSL LOVES A COCKTAIL!). And hey, with Cocktails being a pretty regular occurrence in my life, this bags gets a lotta' use.
I brought my bag from Farfetch.com using a Gift card they kindly sent me after working with them on a blog post. They have an amazing selection of designer goodies that will have you drooling for hours, trust me. I will also be giving you some examples below, so keep reading!
My bag here is actually sold out on FarFetch right now- booooo. However I will link below more a couple of similar YSL Beauts, that might, yano, tickle your fancy.
Obviously since its #NationalHandbagDay it would be RUDE for me not to give you a lil' wish list with what handbags are next on my hit list, plus you deserve a treat!:
What do you think to my little baby? What bags have you got your eye on at the moment? I'd love to hear! xo
