Thoughts on the Large Lady Dior

I actually shocked myself when I sat down to write this and realised I bought my Lady Dior bag a year ago this month. Granted, it sat in my room unopened for another six weeks until my 21st Birthday, but still! It’s been exactly twelve months since I made my greatest and most anticipated purchase! So, is it worth the money? Absolutely. Each size of the Lady has increased substantially in price since I purchased mine, I paid £2750 in February 2016. The Large currently retails for £3200, look how much bag you are getting for your buck though… in comparison, a large classic Chanel bag is now £4830. From an investment point of view, after one year my bag still looks brand new and I have confidence that if I were ever to sell it (like I would haha) I would definitely get my money back, which is a comforting thought when paying a significant amount of money for a bag. Yearly Dior price increases and Brexit have affected the escalation but, would I buy …

A Devoted Miss Dior

It is no secret that Christian Dior stole my heart in 2016 with just about everything! From the Lady Dior I always dreamed of carrying, to the shoes I shall wear to my sisters wedding… I really have been the luckiest gal this year and a devoted Miss Dior. I recall the moment quite vividly; I was on a break at work when my sister called. Elle was in Paris on a surprise birthday trip… I had to tell her I only had a few minutes and she had to tell me that she got engaged the day before. I was oh so happy for them! But the biggest question we both had was, what shoes will we wear?! We both chuckled and whilst Elle recounted her magical Parisian moment, I grinned so much it hurt and then went back to work. That was eighteen months ago. Six months ago, after endlessly searching through Net-A-Porter, Jimmy Choo, the Manolo Blahnik store in Burlington Arcade and refreshing Roger Vivier on Luisaviaroma, I found the perfect shoes, new …

Be Dior & Sumptuous Style

I’ve definitely drifted from brand to brand over the years, from flicking through Vogue to scrolling through Net-A-Porter’s ‘New in’ page, I have lusted after many a trend however, my client loyalty has been with the classics, Vuitton and Chanel. As you know, this year that all changed when I became infatuated with Dior, all of which can be read about here and here. Thus it was a no brainer when I began a new job back in May, that I would purchase a new bag in honour of moving forward and leaving the last five years behind me. Christian Dior was an obvious avenue to pursue as a new season bag was already on my radar and luckily, already on hold in the name of EKD. I remember when I bought my first luxury handbag, I believe it was November 2011 and my sister Elle accompanied me to Selfridges to make my greatly anticipated purchase. I was 16 and I picked up the bag I had always wanted, a Louis Vuitton Speedy 40 in Monogram …

Christian Dior Diorissimo Wallet

After using my Lady Dior with my Louis Vuitton Insolite wallet, I decided it was just too big and bulky for the bag. It’s such a great wallet, it wears amazingly well and is perfect for everyday however, I don’t feel it’s suited to the Lady Dior. I wanted something smaller, delicate and black. This led me to my Christian Dior boutique once again, to go through as many Dior wallets as I could to find ‘the one.’  I ended up going for the Medium “Diorissimo” Voyageur wallet in black calf leather and contrasting Rose Indien interior with champagne gold hardware. I wanted something smaller than my LV, and so this medium size is perfect! It’s made from an absolutely beautiful textured calf leather and so will resist scratches from the zip of the Lady Dior. It houses eight card slots, a zipped coin compartment and an interior middle pocket. It also comes with the detachable Dior charm for added elegance. I absolutely adore this wallet, it’s a beautiful and convenient size without being too small. …

The House of Christian Dior

When I think of Christian Dior Couture, I think of elegance, romance and beautiful silhouettes. I picture gorgeous tailoring, Paris and Princess Diana. I envision the lady boss that is Charlize Theron and the delicacy of Natalie Portman in a Miss Dior couture gown. I think of 30, Avenue Montaigne and I also consider the man himself, the couturier – the founder of the House of Christian Dior. Now, I think it’s about time I address my obscene fascination with one of the worlds greatest fashion houses. I fell madly in love with Dior after spending a serendipitous afternoon admiring everything from ballerina flats to lilac silk scarves, back in January 2016. I remember previously visiting the very same boutique back when I was 16 and discovering luxury fashion for the first time. It was just as magical now as it was back then. I have found the associates in Dior to be second to non. From New Bond Street to Dubai, I have never had such incredible customer service. The way my SA understands my …
