Green With Envy

I'm normally not one to buy into the whole "it' bag trend, and even though I've successfully suppressed my sexual urges to buy the Céline pony hair trapeze or Philip Lim PVC mini-Pashli, I can't hide my woody anymore whenever I lay my eyes on this bottle green Proenza Schouler FW12-3 PS11 shoulder bag (Be glad I didn't get the PS1 guys ok?). Now this is finally a color I could fap to, and I get a hand-gasm every time I stroke the specially treated leather surface. I not-so-innocently tried it on at Lane Crawford while spewing the words "I want this, I want this..." like a broken record. At last, a shoulder bag that enriches my so-called fashion dialog and is sized proportionally to my androgynous body, roomy enough to toss all my daily crap in with just a tee bit more extra space to squeeze in a compact camera for my stalker-azzi days. Plus once I detached the strap, it automatically transforms into... Le clutch mode aka. PAR-TAY mode! (Apologies folks for getting a bit too "excited".)
So guys, what's the verdict: 
YAY or NAY or GAY?

  1. I was so tempted by the PS1. I started to save up for it but then lost my self control and spent all the money on a million other things. I'm still tempted by the PS1 - I'm not as keen on this one. I think if I were going for a "smaller" bag now I'd want the Givenchy Obsedia.

    1. I did wanted the PS1 but I prefered a more structured bag and seeing so many variations on the PS11 all around during LFW really made me crave for it. This may come as a shocker but I'm really not a fan of Givenchy's bag, the Obsedia is not bad but I'm still waiting for a really unique design from him, perhaps future runway bags or something.

    2. I doubt he designs the bags with that much detail, they must have an entire specialist team who design those pieces, no? I'm not a fan of a lot of their bags but I like the simplicity of the Obsedia. I'm still not going to buy it though :)

    3. Very true, which is why I only go for their clothes and other accessories. So it's settled, my next splurge is going to be on a PS bag, but now you've got me doubting my choice a bit about getting the PS1 or PS11.... hmm... (don't say both lol)

    4. I'm not going to say it. I'm not going to say it. I'd probably get the PS1 but whatever you fancy!



      oops I'm saying it: BOTH

  5. Worry not my friend, I am following you on your new endeavour. As for this bag...perfection. That's it. The colour is amazing. Yesterday I think I decided I will be going to London to do a short course in CSM or LCF and try to find a job whilst doing so and then I need to sort out my life otherwise I'm going to end up being homeless in London (which is NEVER a good thing).

    1. Just felt that The Provoker was a bit more... provoking.
      I was always wondering about a name or term for myself, and when chatting with a friend, I realized how through my sartorial choices, I provoke people on the street.

  10. I've been wanting to move to London for years, but now I actually have no strings attached to Lisbon so it's the right time to do it. The course is only a short month-long one, which is sad, but I've been meaning to do it for ages too and it's a reason to move to London sooner rather than later!

    1. Yes, I'd say just be spontaneous and move on over :) You've got friends here!
      But I do assume you'd be staying longer even after the short course?

  11. Yes, I want to move to really live there. Which is why I need to find a job soon after I get there. The plan was to save up enough money to survive for two months without counting on any income in case I can't find a job for a while, but if I can't find one after that period of time, I don't know what I'll do because I don't want my parents to pay my rent and all that forever.

    1. Wow Joana, I really admire your willingness to survive on your own and not rely on anyone. I'd advise perhaps working for a magazine/PR firm cause I think you'd be able to learn so much plus they'd probably pay better than smaller independent companies. You're smart to save up! Proud of you! xx

    2. Oh, never mind that because magazines won't hire me. I don't have enough experience. I just need a normal job, like in a café/bar/shop/etc so that I can, in the near future, get a magazine/pr internship and get my foot in the door. Gaaah, I'm starting to get really scared about my future because I think it'll take me absolute ages before I can get a job in the field I really like.

      Delete
    3. oh! I see I see... smart plan, I like it, but don't worry Joana, seriously with your talent and success with your blog, I believe you'd move up really fast. Trust me you'd be at the magazine sooner than you know it! London's a place where things happen really fast for you just so as you put in some effort and passion-

  13. I'm obsessed with structured bags. Dark green is a comparatively rare colour and that metal/buckle detail on the front really got me. Plus I can totally imagine getting a handgasm running my hands over that 'provoking' textured leather surface. LOVE. yay.

    1. yes trust me this bag apparently needs to be pre-ordered and has created a waiting list of its own! next season, it's said to be all about the box (structured) bag!

  14. Don't worry, I'm following you now :) And this bag is so perfect! I would choose it in a different color, but this model is stunning!

    xoxo, Aleksandra
