Longchamp in Paris
Say hello to my beloved Longchamp Pliage limited edition Eiffel Tower bag. It was my big splurge while I was in Paris. Each year, Longchamp releases a design and color that can only be purchased in Paris; this is the 2015 model. Best I recall, it was around 75 euro. It's trimmed in leather, but the body of the bag is some sort of synthetic blend that seems stain resistant and wipeable. I've been very careful with it so far and haven't tested that washability factor. I purchased my bag at Galleries Lafayette in the boutique upstairs. For whatever reason, the ground floor boutique did not have any of these bags. While it's true that I have plenty of purses, this one is pretty special. I'm hopeful that I'll enjoy it for a long time to come, and that it will always remind me of my amazing solo trip to Paris.
