7 Things You Need to Know Before Buying a Designer Bag
Even though I always admired the beautiful creations of Prada, Céline, or Louis Vuitton, owning a 3.1 Phillip Lim bag was what I daydreamed about. At first sight, the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Backpack was just perfect. Its structured shape looked so luxe and edgy. I imagined the backpack would be so practical to carry all my day-to-day essentials, especially while commuting to the city.
