Gucci SoHo Disco Unboxing

Boy am I excited to share my unboxing with you! Unfortunately for me.. this will probably be my last purchase for awhile. I have been on a buying frenzy lately and I need to take a break!

Don’t forget to check out my Unboxing Video on YouTube!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvhoFtP0giI&feature=youtu.be

I have had my eye on this bag for a long time now.. months actually. I’ve been drawn to all the beautiful colors the bag comes in every season. But, because I am still growing my collection, I decided practical would be my best option. I want to have a good selection of staple bags before I buy “fun” bags!

I purchased this bag from Nordstrom at the MOA. They have a Gucci store in the designer handbag department. This is my first ever purchase from Gucci!!! I am not typically drawn to the fashion house, but this bag calls my name! Probably because of my love for crossbody bags.

 

This bag does not come with a box. I had to ask for one. This box is a bit outdated, but it was all she could come up with. No complaints here! I am in love with the dust bag! Its so soft and silky. New favorite, for sure.

 

Ta Da!!! Whatcha think?? I chose black for a few reasons.. 1 because, I am worried about color transfer. I really wanted this bag in either the mustard, beige or peonie pink. While all are beautiful colors.. It would hurt my heart to have color transfer. So I went with black with gold hardware, and I am loving it! It makes it such a carefree bag. I really am loving it.

Here are some detailed pictures for you! I am such a dork, but I love the crossbody strap hardware! Its very substantial and sleek. And that tassel! So freaking cute.

I’ve read/watched a lot of reviews on this bag. The biggest complaint is the tassel used to unzip the bag and how annoying it is. Honestly, I don’t find it annoying at all. I love it. I am not trying to find a little zipper to open the bag. I have this honking thing to open it. I find it very easy.

The inside of the bag makes me a little nervous because of the light canvas material. But now that the luxury world has changed my life with compartmentalizing, I think it’ll be okay! Hope you guys had a great holiday weekend!

At the top of this post I have my YouTube video linked! Make sure to check that out too! Thank you so much for taking the time and reading my blog. I appreciate it more than you know!

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.

IMG_3524.JPG

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.  This 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!  Don’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. 🙂
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 someone. 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!

Louis Vuitton SLG’S Reveal

Happy Monday!

Why not start my first official post with a SLG’S Reveal! For those who may not know, SLG stands for Small Leather Good.

6.jpg

These are my favorite videos on YouTube to watch. I am just as excited as the person who purchased the items.

I have 2 very exciting items I added to my collection last week, and I can’t wait to show you! I am giddy just writing this post.

The first item is the Round Coin Purse. This item retails for $260.

You guys, I have wanted this piece for a long time! I absoultly hate putting dirty coins in my wallets, so this is a great option for that! Plus, if you are like me and just starting out your collection, this is an affordable piece to try out from Louis Vuitton.

I highly recommend purchasing SLG’S if you are interested in a certain brand before spending all your hard earned money on a bag. That way you can get a feel for their quality. You never know, just because it has a high price tag does not always mean it’s of the highest quality.

IMG_3448.JPG IMG_3449.JPG

I love the unique-ness (is that a word?) of this piece! I love that the shape is round just like the items you would put in it. It has a very small amount of leather to this otherwise canvas piece. So far, I love it!

My second piece I picked up is the ever popular 6 key ring holder. This retails for $250.

IMG_3451 FullSizeRender.jpg

YouTube totally sold me on this. I never in a million years would have thought about buying a piece like this.. I have Minnie from @Minks4all to thank for that. I have watched many of her videos on YouTube and she talks so highly of the little item. At first I was like.. yeah… pssh. I would never used that. But alas, I broke down and purchased it.

1.jpg

It has changed my life and I will never go back to just throwing my keeps in my bag. This little guy is awesome! I did have reservations at first with everyone talking about the LV quality issues (I will make sure to keep you updated) but, I am genuinely happy to have this key holder in my collection.

As you can see in the pictures, it holds 6 keys. Not only does it hold keys, but there is a back slip pocket that perfectly holds a credit card or some cash! This is the perfect grab and go SLG.

The color I purchased mine in is Poppy. I love coral anything. This piece is very summery to me and I can’t wait to use it every day. I am actually thinking of purchasing the multi cles in a more fall/winter appropriate color. Is that going to far?? Idk. Ha…

Hope you enjoyed my reveal and first post! Talk to you guys soon.

Love,
Sam
