Why I bought the J.W. Anderson

A while ago I decided it’s time for me to get something special for myself.

Despite studying and blogging I also have a part-time job in Munich to make a life here possible.

It’s a pretty expensive city. Tust me.

But nevermind.

I forced myself to save money. You may remember my consumption post (otherwise you can find it here) where I’ve told you that I don’t want to invest loads of money in fast fashion anymore. 

Around Christmas I decided to get my very first designer bag.

(I also own the little No. 21 which is also a designer bag somehow but it’s not the same 😀  )

I had a poll on IG if I should get myself the J.W. Anderson Pierce or the Chloé Nile bag.

The most of you voted for the Nilé – and I myself was thinking about buying the Nilé as well.

The special cut of the bag, the opportunity to wear it cross-body and also the wonderful round handle make it to such a wonderful bag.

But as you can see on my pictures, I decided to go for the Pierce bag.


Somehow I like the style of the Pierce. It’s a medium sized bag, the colors are perfect and I like the piercing detail, which is cool and cute (it reminds me of the nose of a little pig) at the same time. 

This is the first look I’ve created with my new baby.

I combined it with a striped pants from H&M. The colors of the stripes are exactly the same as the bag. 

As it’s still super cold in Munich I wore a blouse from the Erdem x H&M collection and put my black Paris sweater by & Other Stories on top of it.

For the shoes I went for plain white sneakers.

To top the outfit off I went for my new baker boy hat by Zara. While shooting these images with me my boyfriend made the joke that I look like an engine driver who is going to Paris.

Maybe these words describe the look pretty well. 😀

Although I’m super in love with my Pierce I’m still thinking about buying the Nilé one day (maybe as a Birthday present for myself? (it’s in March btw)).

What do you think as you are seeing me wearing the Pierce bag now? Sad that I didn’t buy the Chloé in the first place?

Lots of love your way,

    Dein Look ist mega toll – ich mag die lässige und elegante Kombi zugleich! Besonders hab ich mich in deine tolle Tasche verliebt. Habe gestern im Alsterhaus in Hamburg eine ähnliche entdeckt und fand den Ring super cool als Eyecatcher!
