I get a lot of DM’s on Instagram asking me about my opinions on which bags to buy or what brands are worth investing in and having acquired a collection over the last couple of years I thought I would begin a reveal/review section discussing purchases and honest reviews about whether certain products are worth buying.
Being a bag lover (and shoes for my sins!) I thought I would start off with a reveal of a recent purchase. I bought this last year on my way to New York (read about my trip here!). It’s the Prada Chain Wallet in Saffiano leather. I have been wanting this item for AGES- I had always admired it browsing in Harrods and the cute size and leather finish always attracted me. I didn’t buy it then and then the price increased! (don’t you just hate that). So this time at Heathrow I decided to go for it. I was torn between the Chanel WOC and this one but I have a couple of Prada bags and love the quality and sophistication so decided to buy this. I had gone with the intention to buy the black one but when the Sales Agent showed me this one it really was love at first sight.
The deep red and contrast with the gold chain is just simply chic. The old design of this style had a chain similar to the Chanel WOC but the new designs are pure chain and the width of the bag is slightly more wider so you can comfortably fit a phone, lipstick, card and keys in, perfect for a night out or when you just want to go out hands free and not worry about carrying a shoulder bag. The quality is very good and its very roomy for a crossbody bag.
What is your favourite bag? Until next time x
