Dream to Reality: Miu Miu Vitello Bow Bag

28 January 2012

Today something incredible happened. A dream of mine came true. One of my very first posts on this blog, back in August, was 'My Current Lusts'. In that post I showed you the Miu Miu Vitello Lux Tote Bag. You've probably seen this bag before, it's got beautiful bows and gold hardware. I loved it long before that post and I've loved it ever since!


When I first set eyes on this bag I knew I was in trouble. BIG TROUBLE! 

It's everything I love; a soft pastel colour, a pretty style including especially pretty bows, a big size and bright shiny gold detailing. I tried to put it out of my mind but couldn't, then to make matters worse Laura of Buy Now, Blog Later got it! 

After a couple of months of stalking the hell out of it online I decided enough was enough! It was time to start saving for it! So I did. I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have it!

Yep, I actually just sat and hugged the box for a bit. That's how happy I am!

I love it. The colour is so unusual which is one reason I fell in love with it. It changes depending what light it's under. It's technically a light pinkish colour with a hint of lilac, called 'Mughetto'. In artificial light it looks like a lilacy grey and in dull daylight it looks a little like a nude/grey colour. I'm not explaining this well but you'll be seeing plenty of it in pictures over the coming months so don't you worry about that!

I got the larger size of the bag, I have so much rubbish that I like to carry around with me that I had to get the big size. I could have saved some money by getting the slightly smaller version but I figured if I was doing it, I was doing it right! It's made of leather with a shiny, slightly distressed finish to it. Even the inside of the bag is pretty although I will admit I was a teeny tiny bit disappointed that it wasn't purple anymore. Mine came from the Miu Miu store so it's the latest season of it. The only change I can see is the inside lining is now a silvery colour rather than purple. No biggy though, it's not like I walk around showing people the inside of my handbag is it! Please excuse my slightly dishevelled state and makeup in these pictures, I couldn't wait  to open it. I'm just so happy to finally have this beautiful bag!

 
 





 


You can check out the one I got and lots of other colours on the Miu Miu E-Store. WARNING: Lots of pretty things! If you're already kind of broke don't look because if you're anything like me...you sure as hell will be broke after!

So tell me, have you ever saved up for one of your dream items? What was it? There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of finally getting it is there!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. It's not quite the same, but last year I saved to go to Lisbon for ten days and visit my friends there - the only thing my parents paid for was my travel insurance! Nothing beats knowing that you've got something/been somewhere because of your own hard work! xx
    P.S. I'm regretting reading this post now, works can't describe how much I love that bag!

    1. That sounds like it must have been fun! Lisbon must have been really nice. I've been to Portugal a couple of times and really enjoyed it :)

      Sorry for making you regret reading this :/Thank you though and thanks for commenting! x

    1. I can't really but I just so badly wanted to get it, I've thought about it for almost a year. When you break the price down to a per month cost I feel like it's not so bad!

  4. That bag has been on my wishlist for the longest time! Finally got the Balenciaga I've been wanting for almost 5 years now, so I think the next big bag purchase will have to wait a while!

  5. This IS my dream item, I actually gasped when I saw the title of your post. I spend so long dreaming about this bag, I forget that for some people she is an amazing reality. You look so happy, good on you for saving up and buying something that you will probably admire forever!
    Now excuse me, I'm off to view the E-store again. Quick, hide my credit card . . !;)

    1. Haha! Yeah, I'm so happy I finally got it! Hard to part with cash even so but it's seriously been almost a year of lusting after it! Like you said though, I will most likely keep this bag forever and always love it.

      Thanks for the comment hope you didn't spend too much on the credit card! x

  8. Ahh this bag is such a beauty! And I totally know the feeling, I bought a Mulberry Baywater out of my savings last summer. It was money I had saved up from full time summer jobs when I was younger.. I didn't know what to spend it on back then but now I am SO happy I saved it so I could splurge! x

    1. oooh I wish I'd saved when I was younger, a Mulberry Bayswater is a great choice. What colour did you get? I'm fond of quite a few of them, clearly not going to be able to get one any time soon though.

  80. how is the leather on that bag? I understand you only have it for about 3 weeks, but anyways lol *curious*

  81. Ahhhh you have just made me peek at the Miu Miu website and I want the grey one!! Gorgeous bag and I agree that the leather is really unusual with its different tones.
    I've often thought about splashing out on a Chanel bag, but i'd be too terrified to use it!
