New In Spring Bag

New In Spring Bag

 

Le Parmentier Astorya Bag

Hoping we are finally moving past the snowy days, I purchased a pretty little spring bag to celebrate the change of season. I've been stalking several bloggers on Insta who own this Le Parmentier Astorya Leather Mini Bag for a while now. And I decided this is the perfect spring bag for me. It's small, simple and elegant. It’s made of genuine leather with gold hardware. It has a magnetic snap closure and a back pocket. It can be worn as a cross-body bag and can also be held by the top handle. It comes in 5 colors - Black, Red, Navy, Nude and Caramel. I chose this blush nude color because I didn't have any bag in this color and it matches my Dior slingbacks. The price of my new bag is $252 and I think it's pretty reasonable for a high quality bag looking as lovely as this.

The brand Le Parmentier also makes a lot of great quality dupes of famous IT bags such as Chloe Tess Bag, Loewe Barcelona Bag and Celine Trotteur Bag. They all come in all kinds of beautiful colors and I am really tempted to buy since I'm not going to afford the real things soon.

Le Parmentier

Back to the Astorya bag I got, I bought it from a site called FORZIERI and my bag was shipped from Florence Italy. I placed the order on Feb 26 and I got shipping confirmation on March 5. And marvelously, my bag arrived the next day on March 6. I was nervous buying from a site I've never used before but it turned out a great experience.

How I Style My New Bag

For the debut look of the new bag, I put together an outfit with some of the new pieces in my wardrobe. First of all, let's appreciate this Madeleine blazer from Anine Bing for a moment. It's expensive but so beautiful! I love the yellow and blue lines run through the fabric. The oversized shape is super chic too. Under the blazer, I wore an off-white cardigan with ruffled sleeve details. My beige crop pants are from Jcrew. Of course, I had to wear the Dior Slingbacks which are the same color as the new bag.

This bag will look great with a lot of spring looks. I can imagine myself wear this bag with a striped T-shirt and jeans with a beret on; also it would look amazing with a trench coat and a pair of nude flats; as the weather gets warm I probably will wear it with dresses and sandals too. I'm really excited to style this bag with various looks! Stay tuned!
