Decisions

I've always been a shoe person. I've always been a shoe person who appreciated bags... I mean bags are great and all, but shoes are like architecture. I suppose you could compare it to the men/bums/boobs 'debate'...

I digress.

There was a point somewhere...

For the last three weeks I've been wearing a plain black tote bag (that I was given at fashion week, to add to my shame) as a make-shift 'sac', because I decided I HATE all my bags. Daniella said I should say I was 'making a statement... you know like a hipster' if I was asked about it- love her!
I've decided that next year I'll buy a new bag. I'm thinking of an investment piece, so out go faddish Alexander Wang type blogger's delight bags, anything over studded/zippered, or just generally overdone. Naturally a girl can dream about this,*swoons* and who wouldn't mind this, but I'm thinking something big, black and classic. I've narrowed it down to these, which are still going strong having been around for a few years:


Balenciaga Giant First


Balenciaga City



Mulberry Patent Bayswater




Thoughts (or suggestions)?

p.s The Alexa is a no-no.

  1. The Balenciaga first is rather small. So not a good option if you usually carry a lot of stuff with you. The Mulberry bag is a classic, but I don't really like the patent leather or the design. I would go for the Bal city. Classic, but still a bit edgy. Goes with everything :)

  2. ^No, giant first but thanks for tip, lol. I thought the same about patent, but I'm not 100% sold on the leather Bayswaters.

  4. Ah I see. I thought 'giant' referred to the giant hardware and not the size.

  5. Hmmm, the 1st one appeals the most but I'm not crazy about any of them (for the money) tbh. I see you with something a bit funkier (although still classic) - maybe Miu Miu or Marc Jacobs. Will have a surf and see if I can find a pic of what I think is really you. xxx

  6. ^ @WeShop- I actually thought about a miu miu matelasse! Marc jacobs has never been my bag (geddit?) Ok, that was crap!

  7. I would go for the black city. It's the ultimate bag, would go with everything and can wear dressed up and down. The first is a smaller bag, the giant refers to the silver hardware. You can get the city with giant hardware but the studs are quite a lot bigger than on the first. Looking forward to seeing which one you go for :)
