FASHION | Furla Merletto Bag


The cutest bag you ever did see.

I am not a bag person - I would rather get myself a pretty dress rather than a bag, anytime. In fact, I am not a shoe person either. Accessories are just not what matters the most to me. However, I do like to invest in good staples; in this case, bags that I will wear time and time again and that will last me years. How to invest in a quality bag without breaking the bank (and your heart as you look at your account)? Always - and only - buy during the sales. 
This Furla bag is my third hig-end bag purchase that I have made during sales over the last couple years, and although I do know that it is still a luxury for me to be able to do that, it saved me a lot of money each time. I got the bag from the Galeries Lafayette website a couple weeks ago, and it was 30% off - making me save 90€.


I wanted a pastel pink bag as I love this shade (obviously) but also because it is a light colour that I can wear with a lot of different outfits in the spring and summer. The scalloped edges are a little twist on the classic square shape of the bag. Needless to say, I always go for timeless models as I want the bag to last me through the years no matter what the current trends are.
The leather is super soft, so has to be taken care of (you can't throw it around or hit people with it) and of course light leather can get stained easily, even with a slight touch, so basically you would have to cherish it like your first born child. Other than that, the details are beautiful, the stitches on the scallops are super neat and the laser-cut Furla sign at the front is neat and clear as well. I know I will be wearing this bag a lot and I've had loads of compliments on it already, so definitely worth browsing a few dozen pages of the sale section!

Do you invest in key items during the sales?

  2. Not a bag person either, but then again I am not a clothes person in general.
