Phillip Lim 31 Minute Bag





bag: 31 minute bag, 3.1 Phillip Lim

Was it too simple, too easy, too clean? Doubts that kept me from investing in this Phillip Lim clutch that I fell in love with months ago. Still, every morning when picking what to wear I felt I was missing this bag. My favorite bag up until now has been a black vintage clutch with no additives, no clasps, no color, no closure, it is just a black rectangle. But this one has left me down as it is too flat and is unable to carry all the daily necessities. I needed one that was just as minimalistic but more functional. There couldn’t be a more perfect bag to fill this void than Phillip Lim’s huge 31 minute bag with single strap. I think this will be one of those items I’ll wear daily, so surely you’ll see this baby around often around here tucked under my arm.

Don’t expect a big post about what I got from Christmas. This was about it.

    So gorgeous, congratulations on making such a big fashion investment! Also, from what we see here on your blog, it’s very you, so I’m sure you will get tons of use out of it. I love the 31 hr myself, cause there’s no way I could survive on just a clutch…

    you wear it so well

  17. Swooning over that bag–so perfectly “you”!

    Goood I love your hair. I know it would look good on me too but my hair would fall out… it’s too fragile and already damaged 🙁
    And another thing I like is that you’re wearing white quite alot… It looks so clean and almost more minimalistic than black or gray. I feel so uncomfortable in white, just thinking it will be stained or something 😛 But honestly I don’t own that many white clotes, but just the thought of it haha ^^
