I spotted this bag in our local post office whilst helping its owner unravel herself from a roll of UPS tape in which she and her cream cashmere poncho had become entangled. ‘Fendi?’ I asked. ‘Yes’ said,  ‘How old ?’ I quizzed. ‘Four years’ she said, ‘isn’t it fabulous?’. We both agreed it was. As I said goodbye a man in the line craned his neck to see what all the fuss was about. ‘Jeesh’ he said, ‘I thought you were talking about a puppy’.

New Luxury is not about what it costs it’s about what it means to you.

a close friend bought me this for Christmas. I don’t know if it was expensive but it’s pretty much the chronicle of my childhood and I absolutely adore it.
