Miu Miu Studded Shoulder Bag

I love it when I find a great bag which I'd previously written off due to unflattering on-line photos. After staring at the Miu Miu Studded Shoulder Bag for weeks now, I was only able to muster lukewarm feelings for it. Once I saw this bag in person, however, I completely changed my mind about it. My opinion has changed so much so that I now have to have it (hint to hubby who was present during my embarrassing display of affection for it).

The reason why I'd previously disliked the bag was mainly because of the stud detailing. What is difficult to discern from the photos on-line is that the studs are not gaudy, but are, in fact, quite stunning to behold. They're textured by a "hammering" effect that gives the bag a very luxe aesthetic. The whipstitching along the top handles is reminiscent of Balenciaga which I love. It comes with a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap which is necessary if you plan to sling it over your shoulder since the handles only offer a modest 5" drop. It's large (14 x 12 x 8) and features a magnetic snap closure as well as additional interior compartments perfect for storing smaller items.

So ladies, let this be a lesson to you all. While shopping on-line can be fun and convenient, nothing beats a little footwork at your local department store or boutique. Shopping in person can lead you to a fabulous bag you might have never given a second glance.
