A few months ago while strolling in a mall with my husband I happened to encounter a bag that caught my eye. It was the week of my birthday and he wanted to gift me my first designer bag. For the longest time I had been searching for that ONE bag – a small, structured top handle that had a timeless silhouette and came in rosy pink. Designer or not, that didn’t matter to me as long as it fit the profile of my dream bag. We scoured the web to find her but came up empty handed time and time again.
Then came that fateful day when we walked by a Prada store and saw this gorgeous bag (“The Prada Saffiano Promenade”) on display. Out of curiosity we walked into the store (my first time in a Prada store!) to inquire more about it. The size and shape were exactly what I had been looking for. Unfortunately, this bag in the color orchid pink (the exact color and shade I wanted) had sold out in the US and internationally recently. We were told orchid pink is Prada’s most sought after color due its timeless appeal.
Fast forward two months later, my husband came home from work one day and brought in a humungous box. Honestly, it was so big I could literally fit inside. He wanted me to open it. I didn’t have any suspicion it could have been the bag since the box was so big. And as far as I knew it was sold out, so end of story. The moment I saw the Prada logo on the inside box, I knew exactly what it was and my eyes lit up with joy. I know it sounds silly but I think every woman has a dream bag, and I was lucky enough to have found mine (of course, all credit is due to my amazing husband).
We took her out for the first time this past weekend wearing my ASOS floral dress and cincher belt. I absolutely love this belt and how flattering it looks. As you can tell from my giddy face, I’m still very much in the honeymoon phase.
Thank you for reading and have a gorgeous day!
