So here it is! The little purchase that I told you about in yesterday post. A Longchamp handbag! I have wanted the classic Longchamp bag for years. It is just a beautiful timeless piece that can go with so many different outfits and is large enough for everyday.
I spent Friday in London wondering around Borough Market and Covent Garden with my boyfriend and our friend but after they both had to leave for work in the afternoon I was left on my own to wonder around the shops on Oxford Street. Very dangerous!
And as you can probably imagine I found myself in the huge Longchamp store on Regents Street staring up at the wall of all the different colours and all the different sizes of Le Pliage handbags. It took about a minute standing in front of the mirror with this handbag to know that I wasn’t going to be leaving without it. However it took approximately 15 minutes, still standing in front of the mirror with the bag to weight up the pros and cons and mentally justify the purchase! In the end the beauty, quality and the feeling that the handbag gave me that just made me want to squeak with joy overruled the price, and I walked about the store with a beautiful new bag.
The colour that I chose is the shade “Gunmetal” which is this beautiful dark grey shade. I knew that I wanted a neutral colour bag that I could wear with everything and I was much more drawn to the darker colours, especially now we are going to be heading into Autumn and Winter. I love the navy colour but most people have that one and I also thought that I wear navy jeans most of the time and I didn’t want to overload on the navy! I also really like the black but I don’t really wear a lot of black. So this dark grey is just prefect for me and I think it is just gorgeous!
Buying this bag has really made me realise how a more luxury handbag can make you whole outfit look so much more expensive. Here I am wearing a white shirt from eBay that cost less than £10! But paired with well fitting jeans and my new Longchamp bag (and probably my gold watch) the shirt suddenly looks so much smarter.
I still can’t believe that I have a Longchamp bag that I have wanted for so long! I want to really look after it but at the same time I don’t want it to be a fancy bag that I am too scared to ruin so I never use it. I am going to use this all the time, most days and I know that it might get a little scuffed at some point, but that will just show how well loved it is!
Hope you enjoyed reading this post. Speak soon xx
