excited to use these i will leaveall of my favorite lily silk items downbelow in the description box along withmy discount code if you guys areinterestedso let's go ahead and move on to my bestand worstluxury purchases okay the first piecethat i want to talk about is thelouis vuitton neverfull in the mm sizeand the damierbin pattern i have used this bag so manytimessince it's in the canvas material it'snot i don't think it's actually realleather so honestlyit is the most durable material and itstill looksbrand spanking new and i have had thisfor at least have i had this for threeyears so faranyways i've had it for several years sofar and it lookslike the exact same as it did whenever igot it and i have traveled with thisthing i have taken thisto so many different countries so manyairports it's been everywhereand it still looks the exact same it'son the lower end and like price pointswise so it's honestly an amazing bag tolike just start out with if you'restarting your luxury collectionthe one downside to this bag that i willsay is that when it does get like superheavy if i was like putting my laptop orcameras or whatever in here the strapsare kind of thin so whenever i have iton my shoulder it kind of like digs intomy shoulder and that's like a little bituncomfortableso that's like really the only thingthat i would saythat i don't like about this bag butthen again the thinner straps is kind oflike what gives it like such a beautifullook i don't think it would look as niceif it had like thicker strapsi also really love the ballerine i thinkthat's what it's calledballerina color on the inside it's likea really pretty blush pinkand i also got this insert for it fromamazon that helps keep its shape i thinkthat that is one of the main reasonsthat i've kept this bag looking so niceis because of that insert it really justhelpkeeps its shape no matter how much stuffi have in there thisbottom part never looks like saggy oranything like that this isdefinitely one of my best purchases thenext bag that i want to talk about isthe chloe drew bag i haveabstract white in the small size andthere's a couple of reasons why i don'twear this bag as much as i used to eventhough iabsolutely love the look of this bag andit truly fits my personal style i'll getinto kind of like the reasons whyi don't get as much use out of itanymore i love the color it's thisbeautiful creamycolor it's not like a white white and ilove the gold hardware and thisbeautifuldelicate gold chain it just makes it soeasy to dress up or downand it is pretty roomy like the inside ican fit my phonekeys not a huge wallet but i mean youcan fit like all of yourlike necessities in there i'm the typeof person that i really don't carrythat much with me on a daily basis idon't usually carry my likelouis vuitton never full tote aroundtownif i do there's all that i have in thereis like my phone keys wallet like andit's just likemostly empty so a bag this size is a lotmore practical for me personallybut the reasons why i don't really getthat much use out of it isfirst of all the gold paint on the frontit just completely chipped like a hugepart of it just chipped off and i'mreally notlike that hard wearing on this back inparticular at all i usually would justsave it for likedinners or like special occasions and sofor it to do that really disappointed methe other thing is is the like the claspto open it it's justa little awkward just having to put thatlittle stick in thereand then like having it dangle that'skind of the reason why i don't get asmuch use out of this oneanymore the next bag that i want to talkabout is the chloenile bag in the color biscotti beige iamobsessed with this bag this is just mein a bag the color is this beautifullike blushnude it matches literally every singleoutfit i feel like a lot of peopleuse this more for a summer bag but ilove it all year round because it justliterally matchesall of my outfits the only thing that iwill say is that it'sreally not that practical of a bag itreally doesn't fit all that muchin there it's so tiny it does fit myphone but only at an angle i have the 11pro not the max just the 11 pro and ihave to like angle my phone and it doeskind oflike slide in other than my phone lipglossand just like a tiny card holder or justlike slide your credit card in there orsomething it really likebarely holds anything other than that ihave worn this for special occasions ireally love like the bracelet styleyou can wear it kind of like as abeautiful little dainty like braceletbagor it has the crossbody strap you canwear it crossbody and i justi just think it's so beautiful andreally elevates all of my differentoutfitsnot the most practical but it reallydoes make me happy sothis is one of my best next piece that iam sosad to say is one of my regrets is thediorpatent nude slingback pumps i will linkall these itemsdown below for you guys to look throughthe only reason that these area regret for me is because they are souncomfortable and iokay i will be honest with you guys ihave wide feetany of you guys have these shoes let melet know down below if they arecomfortable for you or notbecause i have heard other people saythat they are comfortable because theheel height is actually a great heelheight it's very low i don't like tospendmoney on super uncomfortable shoes so ithought that this would be a reallypractical heel height but i wore thesetoan event i think i was at the event formaybe like three or four hoursand i have never had this experiencebefore wheremy feet were they literally went numbfor hours so maybe if you have moreslender feet you wouldn't have anyproblems with these shoes but ipersonally didand that just really scared me so ihaven't worn them again the patentleather is more of a durable materialbut the slingback part i could seegetting a lot more wear and looking oldafter a while if you wore these a lotdo you think they are a stunningstunning shoe i just really found themuncomfortable and that's why they are aregret for me the next bag that i wantto talk about is mychanel mini flat bag i think it's calledthe squareflap in caviar leather this is a vintagebag that i purchased off of a websitecalledportero i got this bag i think it waslike maybefive years ago it was kind of likeearlier on when i started my blogi think i made this purchase because ithought like if i'm gonna be a bloggerthen i want my outfits to looksuper high-end and the only way that i'mgonna be able to do that is if i have aclassic chanel bag a black chanel that'sjust like the ultimate classic baghonestly like i love this bag but idon'twear a lot of black i wasn't consideringmy own personal style and how it wouldwork with all of the different outfitsthat i haveso that is something that i always takeinto considerationnow i made this purchase thinking thatlike this was going to be like a closetstaple itmainly sits on my shelf so i want to saythat it's a regret howeverthis is my only black bag and whenever ido haveoutfits that requires a black bag whichis mostly in like the fall winter time iwill always reach for this one becausethis isa classic and i can dress this up ordown and honestly it is a really nicecloset staple to havepersonally i think i would have beenbetter off getting more like a creamcoloror a beige so that i could wear it moreoften because i really just don'tget the wear out of it i also wanted tomention the lambskinleather did i say caviar earlier i don'tknow if i said caviar or lamb skin butthis is definitely a lamb skinbag and it is very delicate so if i wasto like scratch my fingernail over thisbag it would definitelymake a mark and it would just completelyruin the bag so i have to be verycareful with it i think if i was to everget anotherchanel bag i would consider the caviareven thoughi really prefer the look of the lambskinmore i just think it looks like moreshiny and justmore luxurious i don't know but thecaviar is definitely something that willbe moreof a practical material for daily use ithink i'm keeping this bag because it'sjust such a classicit does match the outfits that i wearblack with and it's something that imaybe could pass down to my daughter oneday since it is such a classicso those are my thoughts on this one thenext piece that i want to talk aboutis my gucci logo belt andi am so torn about whether this was likea regret orlike a best purchase for me because idid get a lot of wear out of thishowever i just really think that thesegucci logo belts had such a hugemoment that now that it's kind of likedying down i feel like they kind of werelike such such a trend piece that theyreally aren't likein style anymore this is just kind of mypersonal opinion and this is not dissinganyone who hasthis belt i'm just kind of worried thatit was kind of like a trend piece sothat's kind of why i don't reach for itasmuch anymore that's honestly the reasonwhy i got this otherbelt which i know a lot of you guys haveprobably seen me wearing on my channeland on my instagram i actually got thiscloser to the time i found out that iwas pregnant because i love the look ofbeltswith pregnancy outfits and this wasreally my only beltthat i had that was like a nice beltthat would match all my outfits but iwas really worried that this gucci logowould be so out of style one day that iwould look back on all my pregnancyphotosand i was going to be wearing this guccibelt in like all of myoutfits and anyways i got this one thisis the gucci horse bitbelt and i think this is such a more ofa classicpiece because it doesn't have the guccilogo unless you reallyknew you wouldn't like necessarily knowthat this is guccii love the white color with the gold itmatches every single one of my outfitsthat's why i've gotten so much wear outof it especially during pregnancybecause it's super flattering with thebumplike i said i still love my gucci logobelt but i just don't wear it as muchbecause i'm really worried is going outof style sothat's kind of my thoughts on those twobelts okay the next few pieces that i'mgoing to talk about are my valentinorockstead sandals and i have one pair offlats i'm just going to group these intokind of like onecategory because i have three differentones and i absolutely loveand do not regret buying any of themthese are my newest purchase these arethe flatcaged sandals in the color poudreor podre i don't know how to pronouncethat but they're like a really nicepinky nude i have the block heelcaged sandals and i'm not exactly surewhat color this islabeled as but it's like a really prettybronze color and thenthese i've had the longest these are thecagepointed toe flats and they are in thepoudrepatent leather so the patent leather isgoing to beso much more durable than more like thesofter leathersi've had these the longest and they havethe least amount ofwear because they are that patentmaterial i mean you can definitely seethat i've worn themso much but the leather still looksbrand new and i feel likei can continue wearing these for yearsto come iam definitely a flat kind of girl so ireally love wearing these to specialoccasions even to weddings i mean mostof the time i'm wearing like long maxidresses anyways so all you really see isthe pointed toeand i never have problems like when i'mdancing or walking oron my feet for long periods of time sowith the other two valentino sandals ihave they're more of like that softerleather they're not the patent so i amseeing more signs of wear around likethe block heel like some scratchessame with the sandal flats i'm alreadyseeing a little bit of scuffing at thevery tipswhich is kind of sad because like i saidthey're like my newest pair and they'realreadyseeing a little bit of scuffing i haveto be a little bit more careful withthese butnonetheless they are so stunning andmatch all of my summer outfitsand i'm super happy to have them in mycollection the next bag that i want totalk about is mygucci marmont small flat bagin the color nude i think that's thename of it i love this bag i do havemixed thoughts on it now so i will kindof just give you guys my full reviewi wore this bag practically every singledaylast year it was just like my everydaybag and i was sorough with it you guys like i justtrashed this bag honestly i don't knowwhy i did that because i'm not usuallythat bad with my things but i don't knowit's just such a durable bag that i justfelt likeno matter how much i trashed it it justnever really looked that bad honestlywhen you look at it in personyou can really like see the wear butlike from far away or pictures or justlike on camerai feel like you can't really even tellthat it's in that bad condition even leochewed on it a little bit and i didn'treally even careas far as like the hardware goes i amseeing absolutely no chipping whatsoeverthe one thing i do noticeis that the top part looks a little bitmore pointy because i like to wear itcrossbody a lot that's another thingthat's really good about this bag isthat you can wear it a ton of differentways you can wear it crossbodyyou can double up the straps and wearshoulder over your shoulderand you can wear it in the crook of yourarm it's just a really comfortable andpracticaleasy bag to wear on a daily basis iwould say it's more of like amauvy tone it has like a hint of purpleyin itjust so you guys know it's more of likethat tone of nude i alsolove the small size i think the small isjustthe perfect everyday bag size the mediumsize just seemed way toobig for me i just didn't think i wasgoing to need that much space in my bagi kind of have the samethoughts about this bag that i do aboutthe logo gucci belti'm just scared that since this bag hadsuch a hugemoment and so many people had this bagit just feels like it was kind of atrend bagi do feel like i definitely got my costper wear like i wore this bag to deathand it's still in pretty good conditionlike i could still wear it i'm just notreaching for it as much because i'mscared it's just not asclassic as i thought it was going to bethe next bag i want to talk about is mychloe test bag i think it comes indifferent sizes but this is the smallestonethis color i'm not exactly sure whatit's labeled as but it's like a reallypretty chestnut browni got this bag on farfetch very close tothe time that it launchedand at the time this color was very hardto find i'm not sure if it's still hardto find this colorbut if i can find it i will link it foryou guys down below i'm not the type ofperson that reallyusually like as soon as a bag isreleased i just go and buy it butwhenever i saw this bag i knew that ithad my name written all over it it justlookedsuper classic it doesn't have like a lotof branding or logos or anythingjust like my other chloe bags that'skind of why i love chloe they're notlike in your face loud like superdesigner logos but they stillgive you that really high-end look toyour outfit so that's why i really lovechloe i love the gold hardware but italso has some touches of silver hardwareon this bag as well so you could reallymix and match your metals i feel likewhen you wear this bagthe roominess on the inside is muchbetter than the nile it's a little bitwider and i can definitely fit myphone in there perfectly fine along witha card holder andother essentials the leather doesn'treally have any size of wear orscratches or anything on it at all and ihaven't been super careful with this bagand i don't see any signs of likechipping onthe paint on the hardware this bag hasheld up really wellit does come with a crossbody strap it'skind of a thickerbulkier strap i guess that's not like myfavorite part of the bag but i really dostilllove it and i still wear it i get alittle bit more wear out of it in thefall winter time just because of likethe brown tones i like those in the fallit's my really only brown bag sowhenever i'm wearing like brown shoes ori have morebrown tones in my outfit this alwaysjustmatches and just elevates the look thenext couple ofpurchases that i want to talk about aresome of regretsthese are the stuart weitzman over theknee i think they're calledthailand boots they have the block heelso i always like to take intoconsideration like practicalityand comfort if i'm going to spend a lotof money on a luxury purchase i reallywant to make sure that i'm going to getsome wear out of them so i tried to getones that were a little bit morecomfortable with the block heel this isin like the darkerlike charcoal gray i don't know theexact name but i will link these downbelow for you guys ido not like these shoes the reason whyis because they aresuper hard to get on and off like it'sjust such a hasslethe other thing that i think is thatthey're really just not that flatteringon me and i think it's because of therounded toei'm just the kind of person that reallyenjoys a pointed toe i feel like itelongates the legit's a little bit more classic and arounded toe is just not my personalstyle i've worn themmaybe four times total since i've gottenthem andalso this dark gray color doesn't matchlikeany of my outfits i have had such a hardtime trying to style these i feel likethey only go with very specificoutfits in my wardrobe maybe if i waswearing all white or if i was wearinglike a graycoat or something but anyways these aredefinitely a regret for me and there areso many more affordable options for overthe knee boots nowadaysthe next item that i regret purchasingare thegucci loafer slides mules so what arethey called anyways i'll put a pictureof them on screeni had the black pair and the pink pairand i actually went ahead and sold themon tradesy i was able topass them on to someone who would getmore enjoymentout of them but the reasons why i didnot like them is because i think that iwas really just goingoff of trends i was just listening toother people and i wasn't taking intoconsiderationmy own personal style again with thosestuart weitzman boots they're more of arounded toe andto me they're just not as flattering asa pointed toe shoei don't know why anytime i wore them ijust feel like they did not flattermy outfit because they're a rounded toeanother thing is i got blackwhich i don't understand why i do thatlike i don't wear a lot of black andthey just don't match a lot of myoutfits the pinki don't know why i think i thought thepink was going to be a little bit moreof like a nudeand so the pink color was more of like abubble gum pink and that really didn'tmatch my personal style eitherbecause i don't like things to be toopink i still like things to look alittle bit more neutralstick to my own personal style i thinkthat's just like the biggest lesson ilearned just to give you guys a littlebit more thoughts on the shoes otherthan they weren't my personal style theyarevery comfortable however they do need tobe worn and kind of broken in a littlebit whenever you do break them in you dogetkind of those creases on the top but ithink a lot of people don't really worryabout that because that's kind of likethe look they like them to look a littlebit more worn inanother thing is they're superconvenient because they're just like aslip-on slide-on shoe and they don'thave like any logos and then the horsebitclasp on the top is such a classic forthat brand that idon't think it's really going to go outof style anytimesoon okay the last luxury purchase iwanted to talk to you guys about are myjimmy choopointed toe nude pumps with this reallygorgeous embellishedstrap in the front they're actually apair of slides so they're super easyto slip on and off and even though theyare a little bit higher heel height thanmy dior shoes that were so uncomfortablethey're a lot more comfortable to wearbecause i guess this part is just alittle bit wider or something but i'veworn these for several hours to eventsand i had no problemswalking in them they are just sostunning and i don't see these going outof style they're still a really classicsilhouette of a shoe and the embellishedportion just really adds that likelittle touch of glam to anylook so i'm super happy to have these inmy collection and i think i will justenjoy and love these for years to come ihope that that was helpfulto anyone who may be consideringpurchasing any of those thank you againtolily silk for
