Bag Lady.

My whole family calls me the bag lady as when I was younger I might have been a little bit obsessed with buying bags, not nice bags either. I had a whole array of those stuffed animal style ones, I even owned a Bear in the Big Blue House one (Why? I do not know! Don't think I even liked that programme!), it's no wonder I got bullied at school really is it?

Anyhoo, back to the matter at hand; bags. I'm a lifelong fan but rarely buy them any more, I just use the same ones everyday and for going out. I'd much rather spend my money on makeup...

But there is one bag that I have been lusting after since 2007. yep.

The Prada Fairy Bag of Miuccia's 2008 Spring Collection.

I adored it as soon as I spied it on the blogs and forums that I used to follow and have wanted it ever since, I sometimes even find myself daydreaming about it! 

It's made of deerskin leather and this is rumoured to have a very subtle sparkle effect going on with it, which would fit the ethereal theme if true. The illustrations are by James Jean and are a part of the wearable art movement and I love them, they give an almost doodle like feel and are completely enchanting. Having them on a bag would be like carrying a work of art around on your arm! I love that they aren't all colour and just the fairies have colour on them, I think that's what keeps the bag chic and grown up, something worthy of Prada. I think it's the fact that it's not too overtly adult-like that attracts me, it looks youthful and even timeless but it's definitely not a classic bag. I imagine that it would make a great heirloom as when do fairies and nature go out of fashion? Especially in springtime.



I would love to own one but they were only very limited and cost around £2000 at the time (God knows how much they'd be going for nowadays!) so I doubt one will be on it's way to me particularly soon. I can but dream.

Is there anything you've been lusting after for years?

  3. I fell head over heels with that bag too....
    oh and I used to buy so many bags when I was younger,
    now I'd rather save and buy something decent (still only around £50) so it lasts. I don't think I'd ever have enough for designer.
