Finally Falabella

Photography by Amber-Rose

I’ve been lusting after the Stella McCartney ‘Falabella’ for years now, and you will have seen her popping up on many a ‘Wish List’ of mine over these years.  Well now, finally, thanks to FarFetch she is mine!  

She received a very warm welcome over on Instagram when I announced her arrival earlier on this week, like a birth in the family, so thank you all for that, she’s now fully settled, playing with Faye and the other members of my bag crew 😉  For her first official outing I teamed her with my all time favourite charcoal grey blazer, a simple polo neck jumper and some black skinny jeans.  My Stuart Weitzman Highland boots finish the look off with a leg lengthening effect.

Does the ‘Falabella’ live up to the expectations I had now that she’s mine?  YES!  I know she’s not real leather but surprisingly that doesn’t bother me, the way that the fabric falls and how she sits is down to the fact that she is not made from leather.  I have seen many a ‘dupe’ of the Falabella and even some versions in leather and they just aren’t the same.  This fabric teamed with the weight of all that chain is a combo that cannot be replicated, there’s a physics to the way the bag drapes.  I wish I’d taken the Falabella plunge sooner, so if you are toying with the idea, just go for it!
I’m now searching for Falabella no.2, you know, but which one should I go for…..?

    I’ve noticed that I prefer a structured bag but I’m happy that you finally got a bag that you really wanted. That feeling is great 🙂

    The fabella has always been on my wish list too! And in the grey with silver hardware, it’s so beautiful.
    I love your styling.

      Thanks Georgie, I’m now officially addicted to this bag, I would definitely recommend investing in one! x

      The bonus of this is that it can be made smaller by carrying it with the shoulder strap as the top part folds over 🙂 x

    Love this bag – the shape and the way it hangs is just beautiful and really unique
    Also love these photos! Good to know Spring is actually happening somewhere in the world – even if it hasn’t reached as far North as Newcastle yet!

    Beaut outfit, as always!

    Perfect color! That bag look great in beige, black or grey. Other colors are too much;)
