As you know, I love giving myself birthday gifts and little treats because that’s what I’m all about. I happen to be a thoughtful (self) gift-giver, not playing. I’ve been growing my designer bag collection for the past several years and it gets me excited each time I hit a goal.
Last year, I got myself a Givenchy Nightingale in evening blue. I’ve been eyeing this bag since the redesign came out a couple of years ago. It’s one of the best bags I have in my still-growing collection.
Next year’s treat will definitely be a Fendi. I’m currently torn between the By The Way and the Dot Com bag. Here are some images and modeling shots of the BTW I found online:
Pretty, right? I’m into the whole minimalist aesthetic right now and this bag is so simple, never flashy. I love the handles and conical studs too, they give the bag extra edginess. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I tried the BTW in store:
Back then, I only had my eyes on the BTW and I didn’t get to try the Dot Com. Ugh, I regret ignoring this style!
What a thing of beauty! The crisp lines, the seamless leather, that gorgeous pop of blue! I love the look of this satchel because it’s so structured and sleek. It helps that the branding is always subtle, nothing flashy about the Dot Com! Fendi isn’t exactly known for subtlety but some of the brand’s most iconic bag designs are surprisingly frills-free.
The Dot Com is pricier than the BTW but man oh, man, It’s so beautiful. I’m planning to get the bag straight from the boutique unless one of the personal shoppers I know have this particular color in stock.
I’m also considering the 2Jours but the shape is too similar to my Kensington and at this point, I really need to get a unique bag. I think the DotCom and BTW bag are just that! Ah, so many beautiful bags to think about, I should start saving up.
