Did you miss me? Did you even notice I was gone? I scheduled all of my posts for the week before we went away on the 25th so although I’ve only been a day without posting I have actually been gone for quite a while..
So on to the purpose of my late night ramble. I have ALWAYS been a fan of the Philip Lim 3.1 Pashli satchel but a number of things (weight, awkwardness, price being just 3) have put me off but today I saw this beauty in Harvey Nichols (Leeds) and I just fell in love. Best of all my husband fell a little bit in love too and is now actively encouraging me to save my pennies to buy it. I’m fairly certain there must be some master plan behind this, haha, but I do not need much encouragement where handbags are concerned and his approval was basically the green light telling me I NEEDED it. It’s a new colour for A/W ’14 and the combination of the warm pink/purple an d the gunmetal hardware is just gorgeous – perfect for the upcoming season when jewel toned pops of colour look great against Autumnal neutrals but also for the summer time. Although it’s not black (I know some people would only consider a designer purchase in a basic colour) I still feel like I’d have a lot of opportunity to wear it since I wear a lot of black/white/grey and most of my colour is in the pink/purple family so it will go nicely.. hopefully.
Let’s face it I’m trying to justify the cost having already set my heart on it but I thought I’d put this out there and ask what you think of the bag, colour etc. I’ve heard mixed reviews of the style, lots of people love it, others have issues with the opening etc being less than practical but it’s not like it’s the only bag I’ll own and I think I can make my peace with the niggly issues for the sake of the pretty, pretty, pretty.. oh that colour *swoon*
Since it’s a new colour it’s not many places online yet but the cheapest place I’ve found it so far is MyWardrobe.com – link – I’d also be interested in hearing from any of you who’ve ordered from there before as I never have.
