Some of my best and most favorite purchases are the ones that are not planned. Earlier this summer while admiring some Balenciaga leather cuffs at Le Bon Marché (an amazing shopping center in Paris), I spotted this gorgeous brown bag and it was love at first sight. Lightweight and made with a luxuriously soft leather, I especially loved its rich brown shade with a touch of burgundy. Perfect as we head into Fall.
Now, in the midst of NYFW, I’m especially appreciating this Balenciaga Velo bag even more. Large enough to fit everything I need, it’s not bulky. With it’s longer strap, this bag can be worn messenger style to be truly hands free when taking photos and rushing around between the different show venues.
In my bag:
Yosi Samra flats (love these because they fold up, have a t-strap to stay on my too-thin heel, and have so much style!), phone, business cards/card pouch, Poppin pen, sunnies, Moleskine notebook, compact umbrella, Laura Mercier translucent powder, Comme des Garcons wallet (similar here and here), Topshop cosmetic bag (similar here), MAC ‘magenta’ lip pencil, Jouer ‘nude’ gloss, MAC ‘love nectar’ gloss, Smashbox high shine gloss, Kiehl’s lip balm, and, of course, my Canon DSLR which I’m using to take this pic!
