Spring Step




4eSweater: Premonition |  Denim: Mother (similar pair I also love) | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik | Bag: Mansur Gavriel (wearing the large size)

I’ve been on the hunt for the white Mansur Gavriel bucket since last year, not realizing just how hard it would be to get. For months, I searched various stores and websites with zero luck. Then one day, during one of my handbag conversations with Karen from Where Did U Get That, she suggested I use the PS (Personal Shopper) Dept app. I should preface this by saying that this post is NOT sponsored. Just had to share it with you guys!

How it works: you send them an image and a description of what you’re looking for and they use their wide network of sources to track it down. In return and if they find your item, you have the option to tip your personal shopper.  Needless to say, they found the bag for me and I’m pretty excited to introduce it to my wardrobe, especially in time for spring and summer. While the white one has been hard to get, I absolutely adore (and almost bought) the blush one.

    Beautiful outfit!

    Haha I was in the same boat as you!! I was in the search for the white mini MG, in saffiano leather which was only sold by Barney’s, I was finally able to find it on Depop, brand new and at less than current selling price. Seriously, my most prized position, the MG bags are so well made. I may have to steal this outfit idea and hunt for some killer white heels!

    You look so good, I love the white bag

  • Lorna

    You look amazing and I love Mansur Gavriel too! Their burgundy mini bucket bag has been on my wish list for a while, but your white one here is gorgeous! LOVE it! So glad you could have someone track it down. I know how hard it is to get something that sells out everywhere. It’s like my impossible journey with Chanel espadrilles lol! It took me a year to get a pair finally!

    You look so gorgeous! I love your hair :)

  • Shauna

    Helena, are you obligated to buy when they find the item for you? I’m wary about them using my payment info to “verify” my account…

    • BrooklynBlonde

      Hi Shauna!

      No! You’re definitely not obligated to buy once they find the item. I wouldn’t worry about the account verification. I’d had them find items for me and then decided against taking the plunge.

      Hope that helps!

      • Shauna

        Very helpful, thank you! And congrats on your beautiful baby!

  • Azu

    What a lovely outfit. I really like that sweater with those gray jeans.
