Currently Saving For…

Writing a blog involves a lot of searching around the internet.  I see so many beautiful things on a daily basis but it really takes something special for me to go all heart eyed emoji over.

I was putting together my ladies Valentines Day gift guide last night when I came across this bag and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.

The Textured Leather Shoulder Bag by Balenciaga is an absolute beauty.  It is made in Italy using Balenciaga’s signature soft vintage textured lambs leather which just looks so soft.  The lilac colour is stunning and really reminds me of one of my favourite nail polishes, Lilac Dream by Models Own.  The lilac colour will be perfect for the summer months but would look equally as gorgeous worn during the winter with black and grey clothing.

With the gold hardware and stud and buckle detailing, this bag is very much inspired by the Balenciaga City Bag that I have lusted after for so long.

It can be worn over the shoulder, across the body or as a clutch with the strap removed.  It has a couple of internal compartments, a detachable vanity mirror and plenty of room inside to store my essentials.  If you watched my ‘Whats In My Bag?’ video then you’ll know that I don’t like to carry too much around with me so I don’t need a huge bag.

This little beauty seems perfect for me so I am saving up to buy it!

You can buy your own here (and if you do, I am SO happy for you, it is so gorgeous and I can’t wait to be bag twins haha).


Are you saving up for anything in particular at the moment?

    I have a funny story to tell. I actually bought a bag like this because I liked the style when I was in China from the Chinese version of Ebay called Taobao. I had no idea it was supposed to be a knock-off of a high-retail brand at the time. That bag fell apart in like 2 weeks. It wasn't until last year when I was on ShopStyle that I found out this was a Balenciaga signature bag where the real one costs $1000. I still think the design of the bag is very cute though but definitely a huge investment.x
