Are we already into 2017? I can’t believe how the last year has flown by, its crazy how much has happened and how things have changed in the last year and no doubt so much will happen in the year to come.
The blog had taken some down time over 2016, with so many changes and so much going on, it was important to focus my efforts into other things. I can’t say I haven’t missed it though and will try and blog more often (won’t go as far as saying its a New Year resolution!). The angle of the blog will be more so placed to items I personally use- I’m often asked what are key investment pieces or what luxury items are worth purchasing so will try and be as honest on what I think are hit and misses!
Having said that, this post will be all about the elegant and no doubt timelessly sophisticated Lady Dior. No doubt she is the very epitome of what the brand is all about. I had my eye on wanting a small black bag, one that was timeless, chic and would fit something more then a phone, yet still small enough to double up as an evening bag.
I decided go with the ‘Mini’ size (17 x 15 x 7 cm) in patent as opposed to the calfskin, it has a beautiful sheen, is more durable (calfskin is luxe but prone to scratching and marks very easily). There’s also a choice of silver and gold hardware and wanting something for the evening I felt the gold was more appropriate. The bag isn’t appropriate for anyone who puts more then their phone and a little bit of makeup in their bag, its is nowhere near a Mary Poppins bag and will only fit a couple of items, if you need something bigger then I would opt for the medium or large.
