Phillip Lim Pashli *Review*

Welcome back loves!

Today I thought I would do a quick review of my beloved Pashli. My husband suprised me with the beautiful bag last October. After owning it for about 8 months, I think I have put together a pretty good list of thoughts on this guy.

Lets get the details out of the way first. This bag retails for $895. The dimensions are 12.5X11X4. This bag comes with a removable shoulder strap that measures about 20 inches and can be worn cross body.

This is a heavy bag! It’s all treated leather which is my favorite and so care free. I am so thankful that it can be worn cross body because that seems to help relieve some of the weight. But to be honest, heavy bags don’t bother me. ┬áThis bag looks edgy with the dark hardware and I love it! The front has 2 zipper details. You can actually unzip them for more space! Overall the feel of this bag is quality. I don’t fear for it. I am not scared of scratching as the leather is super tough!

The inside is basic, which is what I like. There is 1 small zip pocket. Honestly I have never used it. I don’t like to stretch out pockets like that in case of resale. But I can image it would hold your cell phone just fine. The inside is a big dark hole which might turn some people off. Again, I prefer that. It’s incredibly roomy in there. The inside is lined in a canvas. Maybe cotton? Not too sure.

You guys, can we talk about the color?? It’s to die for. I love green, but this beautiful dark forest green? Yes! This bag was made for fall! It shines in fall time colors. I do wear this in the winter too. You can actually wear this anytime, but I do feel it’s a little heavy for summer.

Let talk some cons.
The number one complaint from people who own this bag in the clasp. Yes, It’s annoying, but eventually you will get used to it. Its a learning curve and unfortunately you probably will scratch up the clasp unless you spend 3 minutes carefully closing your bag.

I am putting this down as a con, although to me it’s not a huge deal, but the bag will slowly get slouchy. Because the leather is so heavy, the sides start to get smooshy and the bag will start to lose it’s shape. I don’t mind the slight creasing on the sides that my bag currently has from standing upright, but I do hope it keeps most of it’s structure.

I have had my bag for about 1 year now. Overall, I would say this is a great piece and I love it. It’s on the more affordable side for what you get and I love that! The leather is so strong and indestructible that I know this will last me a life time!

I hope you enjoyed my review on this beautiful bag! ┬áDon’t forget to check out my YouTube channel, The Purse Addict.

An Open Letter To The Judgy *RANT*

I know this is quite early in the game to start ranting, but I just wanted to get something off my chest. I apologize if this is messy and unorganized. That is usually how my life is.

The topic that has been stuck in my head is judgment. We get judgement from family, friends, acquaintances and everyone in between, because of what we chose to spend our money on. I get that it’s human to judge. I do it sometimes. But once I notice I am, I take a step back and ask myself… why? Why am I doing it? Does their life effect me? Does judging what they do daily effect me? No?? They why is it my business?? Its not.

When I say “Luxe Life” I am not referring to people who make millions upon millions of dollars. I am talking about people like me. I am an average person, who makes an average dollar. But I enjoy little luxuries. My little luxuries happen to be purses. It’s what I like. It makes me feel special. I save for what I want. That makes whatever it is I am saving for, worth so much more to me.

I find it hard to talk with people who are constantly judging what I spend my money on. Why is it anyone’s business but my own? And my husbands, of course. ­čÖé
To be honest, I have lost friends because of it. It’s hard for me to converse with someone who says “why in the hell would you spend that much money on a bag?” or “I can’t believe you are actually buying that, I would never.” and “Only rich, selfish people would ever spend that much on something so materialistic”. You are entitled to your own opinions and I will not take that from you. But I probably wont talk to you again.

I would never tell anyone how to spend their money. It’s not my money to spend. So please. Be mindful when you are talking with┬ásomeone. Don’t bring someone down just because it’s not something you agree with. Why would you want to take away someone’s happiness?

Again, I know it’s early to start complaining, but it’s how I feel and I want to share that with you. Maybe we see eye to eye! Maybe we don’t, but I hope you take it into consideration that you might be hurting someones feelings..

Thanks for reading! I know it got a little crazy. I hope you have a great weekend!
