My first designer bag: the medium Chloé Faye Day

If 14 year old me knew what this blog post was about she would die and 26 year old me still kinda does, because yes you read the title right: your girl finally got herself a designer bag!

As I'm writing this I actually bought two more (do keep in mind that I bought this bag last year and I just never wrote a blog post about it. I'm not THAT crazy on spending money) but I couldn't introduce you to the newest baby in my life without writing about the other one. So here she is: my Chloé medium Faye Day bag, a gorgeous handbag made from black leather with silver and gold hardware.

For me this purchase symbolizes a lot of things. It was a treat for myself, getting my bachelor degree, moving to another country, having this amazing job and just surviving on my own in a big city. I bought it on sale and added my staff discount (one of the perks when you work for a luxury fashion company) and even though it was still a lot of money, purchasing it was one of the best decisions of my life.

I contemplated between this model and the classic Faye and although I love them both I ended up going for this version, mainly because the zippers gave it a little bit more of an edge and I thought I would get more use out of it. That's also why I picked the black colour. There are so many different colours to choose from, but for my first designer bag I wanted a classic that I would love for the rest of my life.
The bag is safely stored in the dust bag that it arrived in and I do sometimes feel a bit stupid for not wearing it enough. One time it was raining and I forgot my umbrella - you can just never trust weather reports can you? - and I was basically covering up the bag with my blazer, because I didn't want it to get wet. People probably thought I was crazy, but I was protecting my most valuable possession haha. 

One year after I'm still happy with my first ever designer purchase. My second and third designer bag - also a Chloé - will make it's appearance on the blog very soon, as I can't wait to show it to you. But for now let's appreciate this gorgeous gal, shall we?

What designer bag is on your wishlist?
