My miu miu

March 2nd, 2008

This is my lovely new bag. The colour is incredible (it’s like a cherry muller yogurt!) and the leather is so soft. It’s deceptively big too, my macbook and dslr fit inside (one at a time) which is handy because I cart around my life in my handbag.

    You’re right, the colour is incredible. Topshop already has a knock-off one for £35!

    I love miu miu – I was just looking at some of the bags in elle collections.

    I am so, so jealous.

    That is a lovely color! It reminds me of salt water taffy. I recently got a bag that allows me to carry my entire life in it, too. It’s a blessing and a curse… The curse part mostly comes in when I’m checking out at the market and it takes me an awkwardly long time to find my wallet!

  20. tamsin says:

    I want this bag so much but am having trouble finding one. Which is probably good as I really can’t afford it. One day I will learn to save for nice things….where did you get it? x

    My dream bag. Is there anywhere online you can find this?

  23. Nubby says:

    YUM! Love the color and the bows!
    I got a white patent miu miu bag recently and it’s my fave thing ever…

    I am so jealous, It looks lovely.
    I wish I made enough money to spend it on nice things like that!

    awh. it’s lovely!

    It would be nice if you sometimes answered your comments. For example people have asked many times about your camera, but you’ve never answered. Do you even read your comments? And could you please answer the questions about the camera you are using :) Would be charming to know.

  27. vix says:

    i don’t know how you manage to afford such beauty!
    i love it.

    Marian – Thanks for your comment. I assure you that I do indeed read all my comments and try to answer any questions that come up. I get asked what camera I use many times a day via email and on flickr too (though it says so in my profile!), so it gets a little hard to keep track sometimes. Usually I email people instead of commenting back in my own comments, just because most people don’t return to read the comments :) I tried to email you but you didn’t leave a real email.

    I should probably try and set up threaded comments for the blog, I just haven’t found a good enough wordpress plug-in yet.

    Anyway, long story short: I use a Canon 5D with a Canon 50mm 1.4 lens most of the time. It’s no secret! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
    I’m going to make a post about this tomorrow, so no-one else is annoyed.

    Audrey Louise – I’ve had a quick look and I can’t find it online anywhere :( Sorry!

    Sam & tamsin – It came from a miu miu shop in Hong Kong!

    jadedcali – I can’t find a specific name either, it seems to go by “leather satchel” mostly.

    reply

  30. tamsin says:

    Oo, I think it might be called ‘butterfly satchel’ or ‘bow satchel’? At least that’s what I found it under….

    reply

  31. jadedcali says:

    thanks kris. apparently it’s referred to as ‘bow satchel’. yet, it doesnt really have a name. they used to have it at neiman marcus and bergdorf goodman. :(

    keep up the good work.

  32. kris atomic says:

    Oh yes, I saw that post too. i shouldn’t think you’d have a problem finding it irl though (in either the pink colour or the brown) as it’s still current stock. I just saw it in Selfridges last week :)
    You could always phone miu miu and ask if they can help you track it down. x

  33. Elisa says:

    I love your blog Kris. And I just wanted to answer a question a few people had.
    I actually have the same bag as you … in the same color and if you look at the authentic tags it should tell you the name of the bag: Miu Miu Vitello Lux Satchel. Most people refer to it in terms of it’s bow though.

    It terms of buying it online Saks and Neimans had it on their site, but I doubt you can find it now. You can always try calling a handbag representative at one of these stores to find them. Also something that many of the posters might be interested to know is that Neimans (and I do believe BG also) carries the newer version of this bag. But be warned, it does not look exactly like the one Kris posted…but it does have bows on the side!

    Hope that helps someone :D

  34. Alison says:

    I LOVE your wallpaper…by any chance do you know whose it is? I have been looking for something just like that!
    Thanks!

    reply

  35. kris atomic says:

    Alison – the wallpaper is from Laura Ashley, it’s called “Josette”. It says it’s out of stock on the site, but it’s pretty recent so they will get more in. x

    reply

  36. Melissa says:

    Kris or Elisa, do you happen to know the name of this color? I’ve seen this satchel in sand and allumino (gray) but what is this pink color called? Thanks so much, I’m trying to track this bag down myself!

    reply

  37. kris atomic says:

    Melissa – if I remember correctly, the colour is called “Mughetto”. Good luck on your quest! x
