Medium Classic Lady Dior Handbag

Could we please take a moment and appreciate what a stunning masterpiece this beauty is? She is the latest addition to my handbags family.

Considering that Dior is the first luxury designer that I became aware of and that it is my favourite IT bag, I can't believe it had taken me this long to find the perfect the medium-sized Classic Lady Dior bag.

The wait may be long but it she the perfect one for me.

And here's why.

First and foremost, I always knew that I wanted a Classic Lady Dior handbag in grey, because, if you had read the history of Christian Dior, you would know that grey is his favourite colour. It is muted and neutral and it pretty much goes with almost any colour.

Secondly, I wanted a colour that is classic and timeless.

Having said that, the medium-sized Lady Dior is not an everyday bag. Therefore I don't see the point of getting it in black. Furthermore, I already own a Classic Chanel Flap in black with gold hardware. Yes, they are different bags but I don't want a duplicate or redundant colour in my collection, especially given the amount of money I had to part ways with.

But there was something about the classic grey shade that Dior brings out year after year. The shade simply doesn't speak to me - trust me on this - I had tried and tried the Lady Dior handbag in grey so many times in the boutique.

But when I saw this Classic Medium Lady Dior in the Blue-Grey shade, I was pulled very strongly towards it. As the name suggests, it has a grey undertone but with a hint of blue in it. Because of the grey undertone, it still falls within the neutral muted shade category.

Therefore I didn't feel that I had completely lost the plot. In fact, I feel that I could make the shade work with most of the items in my wardrobe - which is a very important factor whenever I invest in any luxury items.

The versatility of the bags also played a role in my decision-making process. It can be hand carried for a more formal look, used as a crossed-body for a more relaxed look or worn in the crook of the elbow which works both formally and a relaxed look.
