Handbag Wishlist 2018

Hi everyone…

So today I decided to delve into my 2018 handbag wishlist. Now I pride myself in trying to make smart decisions for where I spend my money as well as items that are classic and will stand the test of time. It is on my wishlist because I love the piece not because it holds its value on reselling. If I do ever sell a piece it is because it ended up not fitting into my lifestyle or to fund another purchase…one in one out kind of thing.

Also, fair warning this is wishlist and therefore price and budget were not considered in me wanting these items. A girl can dream right…

Hermes Kelly Sellier

  • 32 in Etain or Vert de gris
  • Palladium hardware.
  • Togo or Epsom leather.

This is the dream bag for me and if I ever manage to get my hands on it I will have made it hahaha….Hermes kelly vert de gris

Prada Cahier bag 

The small green one or scrumptious velvet version; either or will do. This bag has been on my radar for ages but I am worried if it is something I won’t reach for in 2 years time. The velvet might seem too trendy so for now it stays on the wishlist and the small green one might come into my hands one day.

Senreve Maestra bag in Cream

This bag seems incredibly practical for those on the go and who need their laptop with them everyday. I love bags that combine a beautiful aesthetic with organisation. This bag does that with heaps of internal pockets so you can access your daily essentials plus it even has its own padded laptop compartment. Oh, did I tell you it doubles as a crossbody and a backpack!!!

Cafune Basket Bucket

I love a bucket bag but this super structured one just speaks to me. I’ve been on the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag train since Day 1 so it is no surprise I would fall for something like this. The mini one is also super cute if you want to downsize.

 

 

They also make this stunning velvet bag and for me this is a more affordable option to get on the velvet bandwagon then the Prada one.

Saint Laurent College Bag Large

This bag has been sitting in the back of my mind for ages. At first I preferred the Loulou shoulder bag but then I realised I can’t do without a top handle. I would only want this bag in black with black hardware as the all black look of this bag is to die for. I’ve never wanted a Saint Laurent bag this much.

Ok, that is it for me. My handbag wishlist does change often so keep reading as you never know I might mention something completely different next time. For now, I probably won’t be purchasing any of these as I will stick to my trusty Chanel Gabrielle and Lady Dior but if I had to pick one to purchase it would definitely be the…..Senreve Maestra. It has everything I could want these day in a bag and for an affordable price.

See you next time!!!

Obligatory What’s In My Bag Post

Hi everyone,

Apologies I have not posted but I had been down with Bali Belly. Not good at all and I would not wish that upon anyone. Feeling a 💯 better but still shaky on the food side of things. I just want to be careful not to put anything else a bit dodgy in my body.

I did manage to get my video up so if you haven’t already checked it out please do.

This post is a continuation of this video with some more up close lookbook style photos of what’s in my bag. I know you guys got to see some stuff in my previous post. After this I promise I will not go on and on about this bag.

So without further blabbing here we go…

I’m hoping to do more of these lookbook photo series when I talk about fashion items. On a side note this weekend I will be filming something more travel related. Stay tuned for more…

Lookbook Henri Bendel

Hi Guys,

I’m back with some more shots of my stunning Henri Bendel Modern Icon Top Handle Satchel.

I have been thoroughly enjoying wearing this bag and going around town with it. Also, worth noting my next video will be a What’s In My Bag featuring this beauty so there will be some more lookbook shots from that.

Enjoy the looks…
