Dior Saddle Bag

There were three things that Carrie Bradshaw made famous: 1. Manolos 2. Fendi baguettes and 3. Dior Saddle bags. If you watch carefully, chances are that one or more of the three are featured in every SATC episode. I've replaced Manolos with Louboutins, waiting patiently for the reissue of baguettes to hit stores, and decided to finally blog about my Dior Saddle (unlike Carrie, I don't have one of each of the many variations...). I bought this bag in Milan, Italy back in the summer of 2003. That year, before we went on our tour of Europe, I wrote down the three bags that I wanted to purchase while in Europe and the Saddle bag was one of them. Although I had originally intended to get the denim Saddle, I ended up (THANK GOD) getting it in this neutral version. If I could, I would go back in time and pick the black calf leather version and at the larger size, but at the time I was pretty stoked about this pick. The bag is fairly small, it has about enough space for a small wallet and a thin cell-phone. I think the last time I wore this bag was sometime during my senior year in college. I think this bag is still fairly cute but just inconvenient since it forces me to carry only the bare minimum. I think the genius behind this bag is its shape. It fits beautifully as a shoulder bag, not bulky and not too heavy. Also when its worn, it proudly displaces the CD hardware from the front and the back. Although this is probably considered as one of my more trendy bags, I'd like to think of this bag as a piece of Dior history in my possession :)

as for me, after getting 2 Dior Girly purses which I am now too ashamed to carry outside the perimeter of my house, I swore to never to get another Dior and I stuck by that rule till this day.
