Botkier Valentina Shoulder Bag : make it yours here.
I am a slave to pragmatic bag options so when I am working, I always lug ample bags that accommodate all my life's necessities - gargantuan diary, laptop, stethoscope, iPhone, my cherubic pomeranian-chow chow-shitzu puppy that is fluffier than a yeti ... I jest about the latter, though I wish I were actually in possession of such a dream specimen.
Travelling is an entirely different story. I need to feel unencumbered when roaming around a new city whilst simultaneously exuding effortless style, which is why I gravitate to shoulder bags (my darling vintage Dior had the most whimsical time accompanying me last year) so that my hands can be delegated to tasks that necessitate authority, such as caressing swathes of silk in lush Chelsea boutiques or (even more importantly), clutching flaky croissants and the prettiest bunch of the palest pink peonies on the streets of Paris ... I feel these Botkier confections would allow me to execute these 'errands' with perfect ease ...
Much love, Mandy. xx
