My New Baby... Thanks to my baby.

So every year for my birthday I always get to pick out a present for my husband to get me because as he puts it, "He doesn't want to get me anything that I may not wear.", and this year was no different!

I knew I wanted a purse but I just didn't know what I wanted. Did I want a smaller bag as all my other bags are relatively big in nature or was I going to stick to my signature? I was looking around for a good few days and the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli was actually one of the first bags I saw and liked. Not only did the leather look durable, it had 3 different sizes, it got glowing review from just about everyone!

It was a toss up betweena few different bags but I kept going back to this Pashli so I knew that this had to be the one. The next problem was, what size did I want it in? I really did love it in the mini size, I think it's beautiful and I'm definitely getting one sometime in the future but I wanted something that I could wear everyday. That meant going back to my normal enormous sized bags but then the large Pashli, well... It just looked too big and the hubby reassured me that it would look a bit ridiculous on my 5'1 frame, as I wanted to wear the bag across my body as well. So we ended up compromising and the medium sized Pashli looked perfect!

I actually wanted to get the bag from Net-a-porter but they had a limited selection in terms of the colours available so that's when I found Forward by Elyse Walker. Not only did they ship overseas, they offered FREE express shipping overseas which is pretty rare these days! They also had the colour that my hubby and I liked, which was handy. 

Skip forward a few days and my beautiful bag is here! So without further ado.... Here is the 3.1 Phillip Lim Medium Pashli in Feather!

Thank you to my lovely husband :) I love you honey!

    Yea, in California it is called Boba Tea. I'm originally from New York and we call it Bubble Tea there. LOL. But during the summer time I must have at least one Boba/Bubble Tea drink on the weekends.

    Have a great day!!
