Classics

I've been looking at bags later, browsing around at various websites thinking on what to get. My rule, especially on expensive designer bags (anything that is SGD$1000 and above) is to get it brand new. Reason being is that I want to be the first hand owner of it and any scars on the bag are mine and comes with its own memories. I am tempted to get second hand bags but I've been trying to hold myself off a little longer.

After much perusing, stalking and taking notes, I've decided to compile a list of items that I would like to get. Mainly classics that can last me through time. In fact, I have plans to pass on these items to my daughters / daughter-in-laws / granddaughters. Classics that can stand through the test of time.

Some may not be obvious vintage pieces but I'm sure that in time, the design will remain evergreen.



1. Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 in Damier Ebene and a 6-prong diamond ring in platinum

Two items which are already in my posession. All thanks to my generous husband.

2. Miu Miu Matelasse Coffer in Nero with Gold Hardware and a Tiffany Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet

I hope to purchase these two items when I get my bonus next year.

3. A Balenciaga City in Blue (colour of blue yet to be decided).

I might have to wait a little bit longer for this one. S/S 2009 colours does not include blue so I might have to wait as long as 2010. We'll have to wait and see. Else, I will just get it in a different colour: Grey or Purple.

4. Louis Vuitton Epi Petit Noe in either Red, Black or White with an equally matching bandeau.


Initially I wanted to get a second hand Epi Noe in either Blue or Yellow but I decide to get a new one instead as this is a classic design from LV. And the bandeau adds a touch of whimsical-ity to it.

5. A Hermes Narrow/Wide Enamel Bracelet in gold plated - Black (for wide) and Orange (for narrow)

Unable to afford a Hermes Birkin or Kelly, the next best thing for me would be the enamel bracelet. Simple, understated and able to match a myriad of clothing options.

6. Chanel Classic Flap Bag (Medium) in Caviar

This ia must buy bag. An evergreen classic that will never go out of style. Currently, this is a top in my wish list but as it is rather expensive, I will have to wait quite a while.

Now some classic items are not inside. Where is the Fendi Baguette, Dior Gaucho and the Chloe Paddington you shout ! Well, I have either (a) yet to see the appeal in them or (b) not yet decided on the colour, design and/or material. Even now, I can't think of an iconic Prada or Gucci. Some brands just have seasonal pieces and that is not what I am looking for.

Currently, items are in the positions that I would buy it in (next to be purchased is Miu Miu bag and Tiffany bracelet) but even then, there might be restructuring now and then. Removing and adding in of new products. We'll never know. In fact, since I won't be working in 2 years' time (family planning...), I really do not know how I am going to afford some of the items. The plan is to get one item per year so hopefully that will give me some time to save up and get all of 'em.

Wish me luck !
