Meet my Longchamp Le Pliage (Large)

About a week before I left to come overseas, I wanted a new bag to bring with me, any excuse will do ;)
I had been eyeing the Longchamp Le Pliage for a while on various blogs. Some of my favourite blogs to read are European fashion blogs belonging to women who have a very classic and chic style. This bag is a popular one among these blogs and after seeing it used in various looks, I knew I needed to get one. 

The next question was which colour would I choose? This bag comes in black, white, red, green, light blue, navy blue (like mine), patterned versions, even Kate Moss has a line out. Since the majority of my bags are either black, white or cream, navy seemed like the perfect choice. Even though now I am wishing I went with the black because navy can be hard to match!

 In many ways, when you look at the bag at first glance, it can look a bit plain or boring or even a bit old ladyish, but I love that it is classic and these bags are meant to last for years and years. I have already decided that this will not be my last Longchamp bag! 


What are your thoughts on the Le Pliage?

21st Birthday Dress

By coincidence I found the perfect dress for my Birthday in Las Vegas in Zara the other day! I was in there in a complete rush, I had the boyfriend with me you said "no trying on anything, we are just here to buy a scarf"! When he lays down the rules shopping, I stick with them, but when he saw this dress, he allowed me to bend the rules because it caught his eye at the same time it caught mine! 

Cue picture here : (image from Zara)

Now what I love about this dress is the pleated design. Even though it is white around the stomach area, I am still going to be able to enjoy a big meal for my Birthday dinner and you wont be able to see it ;)
The black and white colouring is timeless and classic. Neutral colours have become a new favourite of mine and this is dress fits that perfectly. 

I plan to wear it with some sort of black heels or wedges and my hair curled and maybe if I am brace, a lovely red lip. Perhaps Viva Glam Cyndi?

Some of my own pics...

I look forward to sharing some pics from the night of my birthday which is just over 1 week away!

Europe time again!

I am sitting here in a cosy apartment in Copenhagen thinking about how long it has been since I have written a blog post. With all the duty free shopping I have already done and I am going to do, especially when I get to Vegas in a couple of weeks, I am going to have so much to share with you all.

To start the posts off again, here are some pictures showing you what I have been getting up to in this beautiful city...
