PRADA ELEKTRA BAG

Prada-Elektra-Bag

Box pochette, diagramme quilting and now buckle-studded strap, it really never gets boring at Prada. And today, they have a wide variation of different handbag styles, more than we can collect. Still, we hope they will bring back the classic Saffiano Lux Tote one day, the bag that we love so dearly. But anyways, meet the new Prada Elektra Bag.

The Design

Prada-Elektra-Bag-5

Prada is challenging all fields of fashion, but aren’t they trying to do a bit too much? The pyramid studs on the Elektra Bag do remind me of the Valentino, especially the red colored handbag.

The Elektra Bag is made with a mix of calf and saffiano leather. Both leathers are durable, especially the saffiano, which is unbreakable. The studs have been embellished in different parts; first on the center buckle strap, but also on the handles. The front features a flap with push-lock clasp and you can sling it on the shoulder as it comes with a removable leather strap.

It’s a chic bag with tremendous space in the interior. And it can function as a great everyday bag, blending with casual clothing.

The Interior

So how does the inside of this bag looks like? There are two compartments and one zipped pocket. Both are big enough to help you transport all your basic needs and there is even space for more.

The Prices And Sizes

Measuring 4.2’ x 7.2’ x 10.2’ (D x H x W) inches, priced at $2840 USD, €2200 EUR, £1990 GBP, ¥346680 JPY.

7 BIGGEST MISTAKES TO AVOID WHEN SHOPPING FOR YOUR WEDDING DRESS

Categories:Other Brands

Are you feeling unsure of where to begin when it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress? We’ve got you covered with seven common mistakes to avoid.

1. NOT BUDGETING PROPERLY

Easily one of the most common mistakes that brides make when shopping for their wedding dress, poor budgeting can quickly ruin the dress shopping experience. Once you’re engaged, it’s crucial that you sit down with your fiance and determine what your budget is going to look like for the wedding.

With that, you’ll want to clarify how much you’re willing to spend on your wedding dress. It may seem like a minor issue, but having a budget in place is the easiest way of making sure that you have enough money properly allocated to throw the wedding of your dreams.   


2. GOING ALONE

If you’re super busy, or you just don’t want to bother anyone, it’s easy to justify going alone while shopping for your wedding dress. But this is, without a doubt, a recipe for disaster. The reality of wedding dress shopping is that it’s not like sorority dress shopping, where you can easily do it alone. When it comes to wedding dresses, you’re going to need feedback.

Sometimes you’ll fall for a dress that doesn’t fit with the style you’ve already established. Sometimes you can end up being unsure that you can pull off a dress you like. The best way to deal with all of these issues is to go with some trusted friends and family. Not only will they be able to tell you if that dress works with your established style, but they can reassure you that can indeed pull that dress off!

3. OBSESSING ABOUT YOUR DRESS SIZE

Listen, we get it. Your wedding day is a moment that you’re going to remember for the rest of your life. Plus, with the concept of wedding photos around the corner, it’s perfectly normal to want to look your best.

But considering how stressful weddings can be, it’s best not to obsess over your dress size when shopping. The truth is that the fit matters more than the size itself. Plus, you’ll likely have to make custom alterations anyway, so don’t stress over this.

4. BEING AFRAID TO EXPERIMENT WITH STYLES

If you’ve already locked in the design of your wedding, it’s perfectly understandable to only look for wedding dresses that work with certain styles. But if you haven’t set anything in stone yet, don’t be afraid to experiment a little.

The reality of trying on wedding dresses is that they can open you up to all sorts of interesting wedding style ideas. Our advice? Take some time to consider a few potential style optionsand try on dresses that fit each of them to see how you feel about them

5. CONSIDERING DRESSES YOU CAN’T AFFORD

Here’s the thing about trying on dresses you can’t afford. On the one hand, there’s nothing inherently wrong with it. In fact, you could make the argument that it has its share of positives. Most notably, it can inform your wedding dress decision-making process and give you some ideas about what your wedding dress should look like.

But there’s one big problem: what happens if you absolutely fall in love with that dress you can’t afford? Unfortunately, this happens more often than you’d think and it can quickly ruin the budget that these couples worked so hard to create and create a difficult financial situation. Feel free to try on a few dresses out of your price range, but never forget that your budget is absolute, and the integrity of your wedding depends on it.

6. NOT BEING READY TO BUY

Let’s say that you’ve been engaged for a few months now. Normally, there’s nothing wrong with scouting out a few wedding dresses and starting to develop an idea of what you’re going to choose. But if you’ve got a 15 or 20-month timeline between now and your wedding, trying on dresses before you’re ready to buy can be problematic.

You obviously shouldn’t procrastinate and put the wedding dress shopping off too long, since most dresses are going to take months to come in and be ready. But avoid shopping unless you’re ready to buy something if you love it. 

7. VALUING SAVINGS OVER STYLE

If you’re on a tight budget, it makes sense that you’d want to save money wherever you can. But choosing a dress because it’s on sale, and not because you love it is usually not a good idea. For starters, you’ll want to avoid getting distracted by the price tag and determine the reason why the gown is on sale.

Is it a sample dress that’s been tried on by plenty of other brides? It may be torn, stained, or otherwise compromised. There’s nothing wrong with saving money, just make sure you don’t do it at the expense of your own happiness down the line.

For example, these Boy Chanel Braided WOCs from Chanel Spring Summer 2018 Collection Act 1. It’s like hitting two jackpots in one; you get the style you want and it’s beautiful as well. So what do you think?

The Design

And the best of all, without any hype, you can never go wrong with these. Always in-style. Forever-trending and better than investing stocks.

These Boy WOCs are nicely built without the quilting, but instead the centers are crafted with two-tone braided-patterns in lambskin. The two-tone eliminates the boredom out of the bag and creates a touchy and lovely contrast. The middle features the iconic studded clasp that everyone fashion girl loves. And what’s best of all? These are unique designs because they will be gone when the season is over.

And if you doubt whether this Boy will be useful or not. Ask yourself; is there a moment when you need this beautiful thing? Of course there is.
