Miu Miu Vitello Lux Bow Bag

I'd been coveting the beautiful Miu Miu Vitello Bow Bag for years, so one day, I decided to save for it. I reached my goal more quickly than I thought, but rather than buying the bag of my dreams, something was holding me back. I went to visit the Miu Miu store in London to see and touch the bags in real life, but I wasn't overly keen on any of the colours and I didn't want to spend a large amount of money on something I didn't adore. So I went home empty handed. As pretty as the pink version is, for something which is so costly, I wanted a neutral colour that I could wear with anything, in all seasons. I'd also recently purchased a pink leather bag which had satisfied my need for an unashamedly girly accessory.

Then one day, I was browsing Miu Miu's online store and came across a colour I hadn't seen available before - light grey. For me, the ideal colour, so I decided I was going to dip into my savings and buy it. I went to add it to my virtual basket and my heart dropped. It had sold out. I wasn't going to give up on my dream handbag, so when I remembered I had a PR contact for Miu Miu, I got in touch and they kindly checked the stock for me and sourced the bag I wanted in a Glasgow store. A phone call to them later (when much to my relief they confirmed they do deliver) and I had bought my dream bag! 


After years of yearning, it felt good to finally own this bag. The leather is supple and unstructured - a refreshing change from the other bags I own - and has a slight glazed sheen to it. I love the design of this bag. Everything from the fold-over flap which reveals a peek of the gold Miu Miu logo, to the handle size and the girly bows which adorn the sides - it's well crafted and beautiful to look at. The interior features a chocolate brown lining, with a zipped side compartment and a small pocket for carrying keys or a phone. I absolutely adore this bag, it brings me joy whenever I use it (and even when I just spot it in the corner of my room!) and I'm so glad I finally took the plunge and bought it! 


The Miu Miu Vitello Lux is available to buy from the Miu Miu E-store

  2. I have also been lusting after this bag for many many years! I would love either this, or a Prada tote I think.

    Glad you finally tracked it down, it's gorgeous in this colour!

  5. I love your bag! I currently use a Coach Poppy which I really like but because it's so bright it doesn't go with everything. I would love a Miu Miu bag but they're a long way out of my price range!

  19. Ahhh it is such a beauty! This bag has been on my wish list for many years but I'm not the kind of person that likes to hold their bag in the crook of the arm so not sure it would be a wise purchase for me. Still, I can ogle! xx

  32. Wow girl you don't stop at nothing to get what you want! You're so lucky, a lot of places don't deliver anymore. The bag is gorgeous though, so is the colour. It's definitely a lot more versatile than the pink one.

    1. I agree, I won't buy a bag anymore which isn't real leather or very good quality - they just don't last. I'd rather spend a bit more and have it for a lifetime :) x

      Delete
    2. It makes way more sense to buy a leather bag, even though you spend that amount at the initial time of purchase.

  42. Saving is such an important thing, but is greatly overlooked. I love being able to get those special things because I have set money aside for when they come up.
