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 …

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 …

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 …
