Guys, it’s official: I’m a proud owner of a real designer bag! I almost couldn’t believe it when I saw this beauty laying in her box when I got it. She’s mine, mine, MINE (yeah, I know you said this in the gull voice of Finding Nemo)! I’m the luckiest girl in the world, ’cause my mom gave me this bag for my 21st birthday 2 weeks ago. Since then, it has been staring at me from its shelf and can’t take my eyes of her. The designer bag that I got is the Charlotte Olympia Flowering Pandora Box Clutch. And I freaking love it. Today I’m going to show you this beauty to you in more details!
The Charlotte Olympia Flowering Pandora Box Clutch comes in a lovely white box. It’s so nice, that I didn’t want to throw it away, haha! Inside, you’ll find some paper to protect the bag, a cute dust bag, an information card and polaroid sticker of the bag – pretty cool. The perspex bag contains also a small suede clutch on the inside. The box clutch was part of the Cruise 2015 ‘Down Mexico Way’ collection. You can definitely see the Mexican influences when it comes to the red flower on the bag!
The bag. What can I say about it: it’s utter perfection, let me tell you that. I’ve always loved the persplex/see-through bag trend, but I’ve never seen such a pretty one. I love the red flower, the suede matching bag and the little chain detailing on the inside. It’s just so well-made you know. And it makes every outfit look super fashion-y as well. I think a lot of people always want to go for a very classic piece whenever they’re purchasing something designer. I have to disagree: although I love my classics, I feel like a unique piece like this will add so much va-va-voom to every outfit you wear, it’s definitely worth the price more, if you know what I mean. I will be rocking this clutch to every special occasion from now on, haha. And of course, the coolest thing about this bag is that you can fill it inside with the goodies that you want. Here I added a MAC lipstick and my business card, but the options are endless of course!
Designer bags definitely deserve some proper care. I can be pretty sloppy with my regular handbags, but this clutch is going to be well protected by moi! So how do you need to take care of a persplex clutch like this one? On the information card it says that this bag is made of perspex, which makes it delicate. To clean it, Charlotte Olympia recommends using a damp cloth as produts containing alcohol could cause cracking. Good to know! Although I should keep this clutch in the dust bag, I feel it’s just way too stunning to not be displayed on a shelf.
By the way, how amazing would these leopard booties (+ matching sunnies!) look with this clutch?! Can’t wait to pair them in an outfit of the day for you…
