Bag Bliss: Alexander McQueen Heroine Tote

So, it’s safe to say that my Chanel Bag saving is dead in the water. Yes – I’m disappointed in myself. Sigh.

I was severely sidetracked when the opportunity presented itself to own this beauty: the Alexander McQueen Heroine Bag.

My good pal Jenny and I went on a shopping trip to Selfridge’s last March and this lovely bag stopped us dead in our tracks. With her lady-like structure, mixed materials of smooth calfskin and suede, we oohed and ahhed over her, checked her price tag, stared at each other in dismay and continued on.

Now…SHE’S MINE! ALL MINE!! While I’m sad that I didn’t reach my Chanel Bag goal, I’m really happy that I’m now in possession of a unique purse that I have never seen anyone one else carrying and that I’m pretty positive I will never get sick of. This bag is also a worthy investment, and is now a centerpiece in my closet. With her refined lines, elegant suede interior and stamped leather, she will bring a touch of class to any outfit. I consider myself very lucky to be able to own something like this.

Check out my video on my new acquisition and let me know what you think in the comments!


Stay stylish!

    It’s a beautiful bag! So nice to see a change from black. Do you have leather products and instructions to care for it? I use Coachleather cleaner and moisturizer on my Prada and I find it’s very very gentle. Depends on the type of leather. Love her!!

      Hey Patti! I used the same stuff, as a matter of fact! I use the Coach leather moisturizer and cleaner on all of my leather goods. As for this bag, I sprayed it with some leather protectant, focusing mainly on the suede. I really want to take good care of her. Thanks for stopping by! xo

      Thank you! I love it so much! I love that it’s sort of unusual and I haven’t seen anyone in my city carrying one!

    Do you know Julie Vu, the transgender YouTuber? She occasionally does these unboxing videos too and I’m sure you’d enjoy them… Do check her out.
    Lovely bag btw.

      No – I haven’t heard of her but I will definitely check her out! Thank you for the heads up as I’m obsessed with unboxing videos. Have a great day, babe! xoxoxo
