Hey guys! Today’s video is a bag reveal of my new Alexander Wang Small Emile tote in Pebbled Latte with Rose Gold hardware. Shop or see it here http://bit.ly/1Wjcd20.
I don’t know why I tried to build suspense in the video when the title gives it away 😒. I’m so happy to have bought this bag since I’ve had my eye on it for some time. I have the original (large) Emile tote and did a brief comparison in case you’re looking for a frame of reference.
The Alexander Wang Small Emile measures at 14.5″L x 11″H x 6″W with a 5″ handle drop and 17″ shoulder strap drop according to the Alexander Wang website. On Barneys they listed it as 11.0″ height x 9.5″ length x 6.0″ depth (approximately). The large Alexander Wang Emile that I have is 13″ H x 16″W x 6 1/2″ D. I bought this bag in 2011 (!!!) so the sizes could have been tweaked over the years.
If you’re thinking about buying a pricey handbag, definitely wait until a sale or friends and family like I did. I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a bag full price simply because I KNOW there will come a time when you can get some money off of it. I you prefer buying bags full price, more power to you.
If you missed out on the last opportunity to save some dinero, now’s your chance.
It seems I’m going to be doing a bit of traveling this year and while I love my current carry on, I’m itching for one that has swivel wheels. It’s truly the little things! It’s a lot easier to go through the airport and you won’t have to deal with your carry on tumbling over. I’ve got my eye on this Herschel Supply Co. Trade Suitcase as it’s affordable but there’s also the sleek options by Tumi (here and here).
On the accessories front, I’ll always recommend the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Medium Satchel and I’d be a liar if I didn’t tell you I’m considering getting it in black 🙈. This Miansai Screw Cuff has been in my cart for a long time and I think it’s time to bite the bullet. So chic, no?
As we head into the high shopping season, one of my favorite sites is giving you the chance to shop your favorite brands at a discount! Shopbop is back with another promo
I’m a simple woman with simple needs so here’s my shopping list!
My good friend loves elephants and wine so isn’t this Jonathan AdlerWhite Elephant Bottle Stopper just darling? This Gift Boutique“Stay Fancy” Wine Glass will be the perfect companion to the wine stopper haha. Hopefully my Secret Santa doesn’t read my blog because this Talk is Chic Tray is great for her. She loves accessories and it’s the perfect little tray to drop her trinkets and jewelry. I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t pick something up for me. I’m a “one for you, one for me” kinda shopper so when I saw this GLAMluxe Full Lid Makeup Holder by GLAMboxes — it had to be mine. It’s great for sorting out the makeup that’s on my vanity.
