as i think more about the pieces i want to bring into my life, i love the idea of something made just for me.  i love how men can get custom suits and shirts made quite easily with their names and initials on them, and always wished there were more options for personalization for women.

when i was in paris, the favorable dollar/euro exchange rate had me eyeing a new handbag purchase, and i ended up coming home with this beauty.

the goyard artois bag is a bit smaller (and sturdier) than the brand’s st. louis bag, and only comes personalized.  because of this, the personalization only takes a few days, instead of a few weeks.  i choose red lettering to match the red stitching, and it gives me such a thrill every time i reach into the bag.
