Home > My Big BAG REVEAL!!!


Hi all!

Before I decided to buckle down and start saving for my beloved Chanel bag, I splurged on a new bag from Fashionphile!

Check out my big bag reveal…the first designer bag I’ve bought for myself in a while because…mortgages, car payments and life.  LOL!

Let me know what you think! A future blog post is coming up on why I chose this particular bag (had been meaning to buy it for years) and its interesting history!

Thanks for watching!  What bags are you guys salivating over? Let me know in the comments!

    Awesome!! I have the bigger Noe and I got it barely used. My concern was.the.bottom.when looking for one to buy. Glad you’re pleased with it.

      Yep – really pleased with it. I don’t use it often as the weather in my city is so unpredictable, and when I do – no joke – I carry a large plastic bag with me to protect it from the elements! LOL! I also have a 10 -yr-old Speedy that sits in its dustbag for the same reason. Looks exactly the same as the day I bought it. Sigh. Thanks for stopping by!

    Love it!!!! Really enjoyed the video. You described all of the bags perfectly <3

      Thank you so much, Erica! I try to be extra descriptive to help those thinking of making a similar purchase. Videos like this really helped me make the plunge! xoxox

      Oh wow. That is really, really nice! Jeez – why is it so expensive?? I get that it’s Dole and Gabbana, but whoa. I’m a sucker for floral prints so if I had the $$$$, I’d happily buy it! Haha! Thanks for your kind words! And no – you aren’t turning into your Granny. Gorgeous florals are always in style! I think that clutch is done in a modern and fresh way too!

        The price is outrageous. 🙁 Its my version of your Chanel. Except the Chanel is so classic and will hold up to time/look new even after years of use. Not so sure about this one….

          Well, it sure is pretty! Hopefully, it will go on sale! xoxox

    LOVE THIS! Why have I never heard of this site.. Probably because now I want ALL the bags haha. Ok promise I’m not a creep, but I love your voice!! So cute!

      HAHAHA! Awww! I appreciate the compliment! People always tell me that I should be on tv or on the radio. Maybe because I have a face for radio? Hahaha! Thank so much for stopping by – and yes, Fashionphile is totally addictive and very detrimental to the health of your wallet!

    Such a lovely bag! Great purchase. ☺ I love the website net-a-porter because all the bags have huge discounts…and when they have sales I just can’t help myself… 😉

    • October 12, 2015 / 12:42 pm

      I lovvvve Net-a-porter!! It’s actually a real problem for me, especially the shoes! Lol!!

      • October 12, 2015 / 12:44 pm

        Me too especially as the shoes fit my mini feet…so I just HAVE to buy them! 😉

          • October 14, 2015 / 11:38 am

            The smaller your feet the higher the price tag! 🙁

    GORGEOUS . I guess you are pardoned for splurging on a handbag prior to your Chanel savings account just because it is vintage and simply gorgeous! Hope you are thoroughly enjoying your lovely new purchase; you deserve it <3

      Thanks Sonam! I’m totally enjoying it…but in hindsight, I wish I waited. Sigh!

    Great bag find! I am slightly, and by slightly I mean hugely, obsessed with handbags! Love the bucket bag, which are making a huge comeback right now. I also love the vintage monogram cause the leather looks so gorge! Congrats on the new bag and awesome video. xx

      Thanks, babe! I cannot believe how much use I’m getting out of this bag! I truly love it. And, the fact that I bought it on consignment makes my wallet a little happier. Lol! Thanks for reading!
