The mini size Mulberry Alexa is great for that! I was also looking for a fun color and I was sold on the plaster pink as soon as I saw the rose gold hardware.

To me, there are some styles & fashion accessories are just a classic beauty, timeless iconic style that will never go out of style; The Lady Dior bag is the perfect example of it.

The house of Dior has cleverly collaborating with big name directors to created a series of mini short film that features different Lady Dior bag in each season, which they call it “The Lady Dior Saga”, and what a beautiful and inspiring journey it has been! So far from the “Lady Noir”, “Lady Blue Shanghai”, “Lady Rouge” to the latest installment of their high quality, enticing short film name “Lady Dior Grey London”.

John Cameron Mitchell, the man behind cult films Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Shortbus, has teamed up with Dior’s creative geniuses to make a short fashion film starring Marion Cotillard.

Lady Grey London shows Cotillard as a popular & glamorous burlesque dancer who enjoys bathing in giant sand-filled hourglass and throwing sultry, mysterious looks at members of the audience. One of whom is played by venerable wheel chaired Brit actor Ian McKellen; and of course, this being a Dior film, Miss Cotillard carries her Lady Dior bag in almost every scene.
