C H L O E – THE NILE BAG

3-1

What designer do you think of when you want some feminine chic inspiration. My first thought it CHLOE – the boho chic style, the feminine and delicate fabrics and prints, the sunny vibes that beam from their brand.

I first caught sight of this brand when I started falling in love with their Drew Bag – before then, I wasn’t really into their style. But, how the times have changed because I could literally imagine myself in every single piece from their collections – including the shoes and bags as well. Especially for the Spring, Summer, and Fall months.

I have made it a habit to check their page once in a while and update myself on the latest collections. Most recently, I have fallen in love with THE NILE BAG!  I absolutely love  the shape; I think it’s so unique and it actually suits their style and outfits perfectly.

2-2

I realize I’m a little bit behind the crowd on this one, as I have noticed many bloggers and celebrities wearing this bag already, but that is okay. We don’t have to follow the trends, we can just enjoy them.  

So, my dream Chloe Nile Bag = white, grey, or black leather, and silver hardware (I’m not that into the gold hardware, as I really don’t wear gold – unless it’s white gold).

Finally, the great thing about Chloe is that their bags are reasonably priced (for designer bags), in comparison to let’s say, Celine, or Chanel. These Nile Bags range anywhere between $1,500- $4,000 USD – depending on the size, material, etc. So again, it would be a splurge purchase, don’t get me wrong, but it definitely would be worth it.

Will this be Chloe’s next classic/signature bag like the Drew or Faye?

BAG OF THE MONTH: GUCCI DIONYSUS

img_3944

As promised, I will be writing for you a “Bag of the Month” series; bringing you a different bag at the end of each month, and not necessarily one I would purchase (although the chances are slim), but one that has caught my eye, or I simply can’t stop thinking about.

This month, I bring you the infamous Gucci Dionysus handbag – I’m sure you’ve seen it all over the place!

I have been super tempted to get myself one, but I’m just not sure if it’s really one that I want to splurge on… (I have my sights set on something else…)

Gucci has been around long enough to make a name for itself; it will be a classic bag to own in your collection that’s for sure! With the variation of prints and sizes, you really do have options.

Personally, I am in love with the ones on the photos and have pros and cons for each of them; maybe that’s why I don’t think I should purchase it… maybe I’m just not a true Gucci fan… maybe I’ll grow into it.

Whatever it may be, the bag is a beauty, and just about everyone I know either has one or wants one!

I’d love to hear your input on this bag! Maybe you can sway my decision – either way!?

Happy Monday!

BAG OF THE MONTH: THE BEGINNING

As you will notice, I have a weak spot for handbags – a very weak spot. A good bag is really such a charm in  your closet, as it’s one of those important accessories that can completely update or change your outfit.

Ever since my first high end designer handbag purchase, I can’t seem to control myself. My lifestyle has something to do with the fact that I can allow myself to even consider the purchase of something a bit more expensive, but that only came about recently, and I know my limits.

There is a method to my madness with these handbags, I promise.

So, I decided, once a month, I will post a “Bag of the Month“! There are so many fabulous handbags out there, I just have to share them with you.  Although, my process of choosing to purchase a new designer bag is more lengthy than a one month adoration, I always have a list of bags that I would just LOVE to get my hands on.

I can’t remember a time when there wasn’t a handbag I wasn’t dreaming of…
