3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel review


Oh my, I have finally got my hands on this baby. I was going to wait and get this whilst I was in America in April but my travel plans have now changed (no more America now boo). I have been lusting over this for years and have decided to treat myself for the New Year and a possible congratulations to myself for working at my job for just over year now, even if it costs me an arm and a leg.

My mother would usually disapprove of me spending so much just on a bag or any fashion items but her mind had changed. Her logic was “If you buy an expensive and high quality bag, you would use it all the time and get your money’s worth quick as compared to having to keep buying cheaper bags once they break.” Then she encouraged me. Thinking about it, I wouldn’t want to purchase new bags now. This was definitely a worthy investment.

I was still contemplating it as I entered my card details on the Harvey Nichols website and didn’t dare press the “Pay” button but my sister had the honour of doing it for me. I now have a reason to blame her for this “ridiculous” spending, That’s what sisters are for right?

I had chosen the medium size in ink (navy) and now I want the mini versions. So much love right now. This is definitely my favourite purchase of the year and am standing by this even if the year had just started.

    Stunning, I never considered myself a bag person until about the last 3 months, but I am a big fan of 3.1 Philip Lam bags, they look so chic, but practical and are great quality.

    Gorgeous bag, I really love the colour of it! If I had the money now I would consider saving and spending it on a better quality bag, rather than buy lots of cheaper ones as I have done in the past!

    Lush bag, Id much rather save up and buy one designer bag than spend lots in small amounts on crappy bags that break! xxx

    It's so beautiful!! My friend bought this exact version and I squealed with excitement when I watched her snap it up at Harrods last year. My Mum hates me spending too much money too but she just 'gets it' with handbags. Also she thinks that my mantra of saving for super expensive bags is making me a better saver πŸ˜‰
