mY fIrSt 'pReMiEr dEsIgNeR' bAg

I used to be a wallet kinda girl... You know the kind of girl who carries her green wallet which doesnt really match anything she owns...
But she carries it anyway...
...That girl is ME...
or at least she used to be...

Until I walked into holt renfrew four months ago and passed by an indigo coloured oversized ysl muse... and turned back...



I carried it on my right arm and then my left... I held it over my shoulder and then cradled it in my arms...
It was NOT a want... but a NEED... the bag simply had to be mine...
And within hours... it WAS!!!


The gorgeous gold details, that padlock. those lovely stitches, the rich calf leather... hmmmmm

Clocking in at $1800 it definitely could have bought me a few more green wallets... And I suppose some purple ones if I'd wanted... But i believe in destiny... and matches made in heaven.

I just knew I'd give that muse a better and warmer home that it had just sitting there on display under harsh lights...
So I did...



I adore my muse cos its not at all logo-ey... Its understated and sexy and makes me extremely happy and most people don't know its pricey so its remained in my closet...
where it belongs!!!



A Picture of me months ago going out with the bag(Just so u guys know I don't just leave it looking pretty in my closet... lol)

Bag: Yves Saint Laurent, Tank:Ed Hardy, Jeans: BEBE(I'm in so much love with ripped jeans right now... ), Leather Jacket: Danier Leather, Investment banker glasses: Priceless(actually maybe not... cos the last time I wore these in Nigeria... a stranger walked up to me and promised to get me pregnant before I left... I almost ran out of that club... geez!!)

In 3 months I have gone from only carrying my wallet to owning 5 handbags...(which is a big deal trust me)

Today, fathers day, I would like to celebrate Yves Saint Laurent for imagining this bag... and I suppose me for taking the vision... and carrying it on my right arm... my best arm.

Now all I want this summer(bag-wise) is this yellow really gorgeous michael kors braided grommet bag I saw in the MK store right before I went on vacation... and can't find anywhere now.

I need to own this bag... After which the rest of my life should fall nicely into place...

  11. I'm more a Marc Jacobs girl myself (I have 4 of his handbags) and I'm pretty loyal to the brands that I like. I YSL more for the killer shoes they've been churning out for the last few years. But trust me, I know the feeling of investing in something that is classic.
