So I bought a new handbag. It’s small and blue and makes me feel a bit girly. Everyone needs a bag like that, right?
I spotted it on Nordstrom about two weeks ago and instead of buying it straight away I decided to stalk full size Selma’s for a while. I don’t know why to be honest, I think my mentality was ‘OK if I’m going to buy a bag maybe I should just buy a big one’. But then after much online trawling (like, actual days passed by) I decided I didn’t need or want a big bag, I wanted a cute crossbody.
It cost Dhs700 from Nordstrom and they ship worldwide, which is always good news. It arrived in Dubai about four days after I ordered it and the customs charges were pretty minimal.
Nordstrom have some seriously good deals on Selma’s right now – the medium in brown or black has been reduced to Dhs675 and the medium in fuchsia pink is Dhs900! They are sold out in the mini but you can get it slightly cheaper at Bloomingdales (in blue). They also have it in blush pink and taupe.
Now, size wise as you can see it’s pretty small but not as small as I thought it would be. To give you an idea, you can easily fit an iPad mini, phone, keys, cash and a few pieces of makeup in it. An average to large wallet is a no go but, inside the bag is a neat little slot for cards and cash so they don’t bounce around in there. It’s made from super solid, tough leather and the crossbody strap is generous, which I like. You can see in the picture above that it comes to the top of my thigh.
If you’re looking for a high quality crossbody I highly recommend and it’s super cute to boot.
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend 🙂
