I’ve been trying my best to buy everything on my original luxury wish list. However, budget constraints and other priorities happen so I need to tweak my wish list a little. Not to mention I have a bad habit of being impulsive. So sometimes it throws my budgeting out of wack. I think some people can relate to that!
Recently, I got the chance to score a 3.1 Philip Lim Mini Pashli on SALE. Well, being impulsive of course I had to grab my chance right away. I’ve been eyeing on getting a small bag for a while now and I did my research on possible styles that will catch my attention.
I bought my first 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli two years ago. Mine is the old version without the long strap. One of the things I love about it is that it’s large enough to put a lot of things inside. It’s my perfect travel companion. Another pro for me is the design. It’s not something flashy plus the leather is not prone to scratches. Really, a sturdy bag if you ask me. The only downside is that it’s heavy even without anything in it. Months after getting my Pashli bag, I’ve been looking at the option of getting another one in a smaller size. Then, I realized I wanted a different bag so I set that thought aside.
Two years later, I came across a nice deal and decided to get the Mini Pashli. I had a hard time choosing the color I want. There are so many colors and color combinations to choose from. All of them are beautiful but after watching tons of videos on YouTube and browsed through countless photos on Pinterest, I decided to go with Black with Gold Hardware. It’s the safest choice for me. It goes with my usual outfits. In terms of size, there’s a huge difference but the mini can still fit a decent amount of essentials.
Here’s what I usually bring with me when I use my Mini Pashli.
- Young Living Gentle Mist Diffuser (I love my handy diffuser)
- Nerds Candy
- Furla Key Holder
- Antibacterial Wipes
- Alcohol Spray
- The Body Shop Lip Tint
- Coin purse (which carries my cash)
- The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane Hand Lotion
- Earphones (inside my earphone holder)
- Oil Control Film
- Prada Card Holder
This bag can also fit a full size wallet but I prefer to use a smaller wallet to maximize the space.
Here’s what it looks like when everything is inside the bag.
As you can see, it’s not just a small bag. It’s a stylish, sturdy bag with a decent size for essentials. Not to mention, the leather used is not easy to scratch. I don’t have to baby this bag so much. Very carefree to use. This bag purchase is totally worth it.
I hope you enjoyed reading my blog. ‘Til the next one!
