I love Nylon

No, it´s not the magazine. :) What I mean is that I´ve always loved nylon bags. They´re light, easy to bring along and durable. I have a very petite frame and small shoulders and so the smaller and less bulky the bag, the better. Over the years I´ve quite made a collection out of some nylon bags which I normally abuse until they die on me.hehe!

This gray bag is relatively new and my favorite right now. You can see this in almost all of my recent summer posts. For me, summer bags should be small and light to lug around because you need to stay comfortable in the summer heat and not be a slave to your big and heavy leather bag.

It is a 6 year old rectangular bag which I hardly use right now. This was my ¨to go¨  bag when I still lived in the Philippines. I was always a UC of Benetton fan especially their bags. They´re colorful and functional. Although there was a time in my life when I can still afford a Prada nylon bag ( it was the rage back then), I can´t seem to let go of my hard earned  cash for a very expensive black nylon bag. hahaha!

Anyway, since I was a good girl in Lisbon (eherm!), the hubz decided to buy me a bag or rather I pestered the hubz to buy me another bag. It seems like this is going to be a summer tradition because he also bought me a bag last year. Just wishing and hoping. ;)

My Longchamp Le Pliage bag in red. What I also like about this bag is that it can be folded and so it doesn´t need a lot of closet space. Perfect for those who have tiny closets like me. It´s also roomy and light at the same time. I debuted this bag for an afternoon trip to San Sebastian with the hubz. When he asked if I wanted to go there ( it was the city´s fiesta) I readily said yes without a blink. It´s the perfect excuse to use my new bag! ;)

So here it is. It´s so roomy and I loved it! I knew there´ll be a lot of hard walking when we get there and so I also packed my white flats just in case my feet starts to hurt because I was wearing tall gray wedges at first. I was right because I really had to use the flats when we ran  from one beach to the other to have a perfect view of the fireworks! Even if the wedges are in and the flats are out, the bag doesn´t look bulky at all and is still light to carry around. ¡Maravilloso! So there goes my love for nylon.

What about you? Do you love nylon? Love to hear your thoughts. ;)

I love your new handbag! The best thing about Longchamp-type bags is that you can fold them up, it's so convenient, isn't it? :)

Great have a lovely collection of bags. I've only had a single nylon bag, a LeSportSac one...but its very light and easy to carry, as you said.

Big bags are the best! Nylon is light, so that is good for big bags :)

Too bad Ms. Venus gave such a so-so answer. Beauty contestants really need to work on their brains and not just their beauty. It might've been because of nervousness, though, so I completely understand.
