Fashion, What I Wore

What I Wore: City Limits

18th April, 2023

If I were to describe my style it would be classic and polished. I gravitate towards pieces that have an eternally stylish feel to them — whether it’s a buttery soft leather bag or a pair of elegant heels or a beautifully tailored suit, I always lean in to the classics. So when I was lucky enough to be gifted the Louis Vuitton Noe BB bag, I knew I had a keeper on my hands. This particular bag style was born in 1932, when a custom order from a champagne producer for a leather bag that could transport champagne, and was indestructible spurred the design. The bucket bag style was the result, and it has been a part of LV’s accessories line-up since. I love the fact it’s roomy enough to hold all my essentials, but has structure to it that gives it polish. Also, the fact the strap is adjustable and the bag can be worn crossbody style or as a shoulder bag is a major plus due to its versatility.

Shooting on this day, I wanted a look that complemented the classic feel of the bag and this set by Chanel fit the brief perfectly. The longline gilet is feminine, but the clean lines ensure it looks sharp. Tailored black pants are a forever staple in my wardrobe—they get so much wear. Sometimes black pants can err on the side of corporate, but these pants have a fluidity to them that gives them a modern vibe. I tend to splurge on shoes, but only on styles I know I’ll always get multiple wears out of and these Chanel pumps are always in the mix. They have a block heel so they’re comfy, and the two tone camel and black colour way which is synonymous with the brand ensures they’re a forever shoe.
