Lookbook: Miu Miu Bow Bag


First lookbook for the Miu Miu bow bag!  I <3 this bag so so much.  I haven’t stopped carrying it since I got it.  It’s the perfect size for all my stuff and just so cute!  These pictures are the first day I got it so the leather is a bit stiff (the top flap is suppossed to flap over but it wasn’t cooperating because it was too stiff) but now it’s all nice and smooshy and gets smooshier by the day.  I love smooshy leather.  And just saying smooshy in general.  LOL!

This little dress is one of my all time favorites and I actually wore it around this time last year.  (Boy was I tan!  I just got back from Jamaica in that photo which is funny because I’m off to Jamaica again soon.)

Theory Alexandra Striped Silk Dress
I can’t find anything similar to mine with the ruffles, but lots of fun stripey dresses to choose from!  This Theory one is really pretty but also loving the Minkpink stripe mini dress (on sale for $32!).  Also adore the Vince maxi dress.  I think I need a striped maxi dress to add to my summer wardrobe.

Heritage1981 Crest Nautical Cardigan
You can’t see the back of my cardigan but it has stripes on the back.  I love the look of the nautical cardigans though and Forever 21 has some good options for great prices like the one above or the Nautical Open Front Cardigan.  This Striped Cotton Cardigan would also look cute with a striped dress and only $17.

Christian Louboutin Simple 70 leather pumps
I’ve had a few readers tell me that they had luck finding the Simple 100 pumps (the ones I’m wearing) by stalking the stores or having a sales associate stalk the inventory for them, so they definitely still are available!  I can only find the 70 (which means a 3 inch heel) so if you like the shorter heel, snap these up! 

The Corso Como “Palomar” Platform Pumps are a great “look for less” option! Or I love these Vince Camuto Missie Pump with the studs on the back!  Also, if you love a super high heel, check out the Dolce Vita Dorothy Pumps!

Miu Miu Bow Bag

I took a long time deciding which color I wanted and I was slightly worried about this gray but now I love it.  It’s neutral enough to go with everything but still stands out with the outfit.  If you are looking for something similar and not as pricey, check out the Kate Spade Cobble Hill, the shape is really similar!  I think for the same type of satchel shape, the Badgley Mischka Melissa Turnlock Satchel is also really cute.

I love the Arty Too ring!  It’s still a statement ring but more delicate than original Arty ring.

    everything is just perfect, how do you do that Tiff ?:) Amazing bag not to mention Louboutins…
    I must confest something:After dicovering your blog a year ago,I started to save for my first Louboutins (finger crossed)!
    Sadly,I purchased once the MiuMiu Bow bag with my hard earnd money only to find out that it was fake…luckily after some time I was able to get my money back, so again. Lucky you. Greets from Poland

    Ahh! I'm so envious of your Miu Miu bag! And all your Chanels! 🙂 And I love how you love smooshy! I can totally relate. The new layout for items is great and that Arty ring is very gorgeous! (that doesn't sound grammatically correct does it?)

    Omgosh the grey is amazing!!! I didn't realize that the grey was so dark for some weird reason I thought it was a light dusty grey but I love this color it's so gorgeous!!

    So in love with your nude patent loubies.. Loubies def makes the best nude but every time I try to buy something in a light nude it's always sold out super fast ugh…

    Looking great as always! I love that Miu Miu bag. That's the one I want to get, but the smaller version in pale grey or pink… your bag looks like the perfect size though. I'll have to compare them in real life.

    Your outfit is cute, as usual 🙂

    @Lisa at first I only saw the light gray and debated on getting that or the pink that you got but then I noticed like 3 days later that I could scroll down and see the other colors which is how I discovered the dark gray!

    I think the light nude is definitely the hardest to get your hands on! I stalked barneys.com for a long time before I got mine!

    @Anonymous I couldn't decide what color to get for awhile too but I don't think you can go wrong either way! My bag is pretty roomy but I think the smaller bag is a great size too.

    @Richelle Heck no, we don't mind! We want you to join the Bow Bag club! 🙂 We can all wear them when we meet up in real life. haha!

    I was the same as you, always wanting to get it but ended up getting something else. It took me forever to pull the trigger!

    Tiffany you are amazing and very talented. I was wondering what size your miu miu bag is. Is it the big or small version? Being petite, I don't want to order the big size and it'll be too big for my frame. Thanks.

    Smooshy IS such a fun word to say! They should include that in product descriptions hehe. Omg that Arty Too ring blows the Arty out of the water IMO. I now have a new lust.

    hi tiffany! i discovered your blog just over a month ago and i love your style! in fact, i bought some jewelry from your line a couple weeks ago. also, you've inspired me to consider purchasing my first $1K+ handbag! any advice on getting a good discount with the miu miu bow bag? ex. ebates, presale, online store, etc? btw…is the bow bag the same as "vitello"? bergdorf goodman has it listed separately with $100 price differential. many thanks!

  • tiffanystylish
    November 2, 2011 at 9:59 pm

    @MK from Socal Hi MK! Thanks so much for shopping my jewelry line, I really appreciate it! 🙂 Unfortanately with Miu Miu, they are very good at escaping any sort of discount. the only thing that I seem to save on is tax which if I order from Bergdorf or the Miu Miu website, I don't get charged tax because Seattle doesn't have either store here. Not sure if that will be the same for you but that was one way I saved money.

    You know, I'm not sure why Bergdorf has it listed as "vitello" but it does look like the same bag! I think it might be a different size? Mine is this one http://www.miumiu.com/en/US/e-store/dep/handbags/cat/all/mat/all/col/all/RT0365_X72_F0031

    I have heard that sometimes Miu Miu stores will have bow bags marked down but those go so fast so you have to have an "in" with a sales person there.

    Sorry I couldn't help more but good luck with your bag! Let me know if you end up getting it! 🙂
