My birthday is coming up very soon (August 6, in case you were wondering!) and this is my dream birthday gift.
I'm using the money to go to LA instead which is probably cooler (it is), but I'm still dreaming of a 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli. Right now the only bag I have big enough to lug all my stuff around during the work week is a super-beat up Jeremy Scott for Longchamp tote that I bought while studying in Paris four years ago. I once sidled up to Candice Swanepoel with this sad sack (hah!) and it was kind of embarrassing--while I love it, it's seen better days.
So I made the mistake of picking up this inky blue Pashli while my mom was in town and I just feel head over heels in love with it. It isn't obnoxiously large, but it will still hold all my goods. And the color, the gold hardware, the optional shoulder strap--it's pretty much perfect.
No, that's not a tear in my eye.
You can grab your own perfect Pashli here.
