Probably nothing new for you will be the fact that I belong to the type of women in whose lives handbags and shoes are of great importance.  I can’t say if it’s on par with clothes.  The only thing is certain, the main feature of all products is always classic, high quality and reputation.  While some issues sometimes require turning a blind eye, nothing changes when it comes to handbags and footwear.  There are no compromises here.  I will not surprise you by writing that I chose a Dior Bobby Bag for my birthday present, although it was not an obvious choice.  Of course, there was the saddle bag.

The Saddle Bag

The saddle bag has become very popular in the last few years and has earned the name “It bags”.  This is a model we could see on Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City.  Unobvious, adding the spirit of modernity to any style.  A progressive classic that will not pass away too quickly and will remain in fashion for a long time.  So, what made me choose the one I hadn’t considered, instead of going for a model that had been on my wishlist for a long time?

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Dior Bobby Bag – love at the next sight

Simplicity, timelessness, universality and an unobtrusive model.  This is what spoke most in favor of choosing Bobby Bag.  I have always had a great weakness for simplicity, as Leonardo da Vinci used to say, this is the ultimate sophistication.  I think that’s one of the main reasons why something immediately “clicked” between me and Bobby Bag.  Maybe it’s the certainty that even in ten years it will look as good as it looks today?  Perhaps it’s an adjustable strap that allows me to wear the bag in many ways, especially over the shoulder?  Perhaps it’s the shiny golden fittings, from which it’s hard to take your eyes off?  It is difficult for me to specify which of the above aspects had the greatest influence on my decision.

Calfskin leather 

The appearance, glaring luxury, made me completely lost.  An even, delicate texture, matte, but slightly shimmering under the light.  Smooth and pleasant to the touch, hard enough to perfectly hold the created form.  The first time I saw Bobby Bag, the impeccability of the leather left me speechless, and the only words I could come up with were “It’s gorgeous”, it was all I could afford.  The Dior Bobby Bag is so simple and unique that it draws all the attention to itself.  It makes me admire it in silence, with a smile on my face and gratitude in my heart, instead of thinking about grandiose terms.

Matches with every style

I don’t have many clothes in my wardrobe, their excess gives me a headache.  Anyway, I think that the more of them, the more difficult it becomes to choose an outfit every day.  When completing my wardrobe and selecting accessories, I pay special attention to their correlation with each other.  I will not surprise you by writing that when choosing a new handbag, I choose the color and model that I needed in my wardrobe, complementing my summer wardrobe with an element that will be perfect for warm days, complementing my bright styles.  But, it is definitely not a handbag, only for the summer.

My thirtieth birthday present was supposed to be the obvious choice.  However, these obvious choices do not always turn out to be the right ones for us.  In my case, the classic and its simplicity won over the obvious.  To my surprise, I am very pleased with this turn of events and change of mind.  I am convinced that the Bobby Bag will be the model that I will have a special fondness for, as it is a birthday gift from people close to me, to which each person has contributed.  But why I bought my birthday present in December, six months before the actual date, I will explain to you another time…
