PROENZA SCHOULER PS1 MEDIUM BAG

Monday, July 27 (11:49 PM)

I've been lusting over the Proenza Schouler PS1 since January this year, when I first laid my eyes on this beauty. I saw it whilst surfing the net, in passing, and was quite taken by it... then shortly afterwards I started seeing it appear on the arms of young celebrities - namely Leighton Meester (whom I love on Gossip Girl), the Olsen Twins, and Kristen Dunst (really like her as an actress). That fuelled my lust even further, except I had one tiny problem.......

The bag is always sold out worldwide, and comes in very limited numbers, and even more limited colours. I called all around the USA, and even to the UK, to no avail. Everyone was "sold out" of the specific blue leather Medium size that I wanted.

Then, I found this online boutique that had it!!!!!!! It took me about 7 months to finally find it and get my hot lil hands on the bag, but it was well worth the wait. I'm just blown away with the smell of the leather! It has this incredible rich, strong leather scent.. so much so I keep sniffing at the bag like a crazy person.

The leather is really soft, and I adore how the bag is quite structured, yet the leather is really soft and slouchy. It makes the PERFECT work bag because it's plain and professional looking enough, yet it has "me" written all over it (mainly due to the soft leather, which basically all my bags have).

There are lots of compartments and zipper pockets, great because I love to have everything in its own place (very obsessive compulsive about that). And I can carry it as a briefcase, sling it on my shoulder, or wear it across my body - love bags that are multipurpose.

Best of all is the leather scent though... man it's intoxicating.... *goes off to have another whiff*
