Bag Review: Dior Toile de Jouy Book Tote


New year, new bag! LOL!! Good. It’s not a good excuse, but is it still a decent excuse?

blankYes, I succumbed. If you had been watching my IG Stories, you would know how much I disliked the Dior Saddle and how little love I have for the brand’s bags. But then the Toile de Jouy collection came out. And while I’m not a fan of Dior bags, I’m a huge fan of anything toile de jouy.

And so… I bought the *tos* (overpriced) Book Tote. Yes, consider me a fool. LOL I’ll take it.

Now here’s the honest review of the bag (and everyone knows I don’t hold back):

The Book Tote is already heavy even with nothing inside. There are numerous loose threads in and around the bag (which I find very annoying because this bag is not priced like your average weekend market bag), and I am concerned that the stitches will “run away”. hour.



blankI get it, I’m probably being picky (and the nice folks at Dior would probably say the exact same thing and secretly say “then you shouldn’t have bought the bag”), but if I’m shelling out my hard earned €2000++ money, I hope a canvas bag (not even leather) that is very well made. And you can’t blame me for having that kind of expectation. Because with that kind of money, you can definitely get a designer bag of impeccable quality (yes, but more on that in another post).

The good point of this Dior Book Tote: you can easily carry the bag over your shoulder. And if you are a big fan of toile de jouy, this is a bag that you will really like because of the print. But if you’re like me (i.e., you’re not a big fan of Dior bags in general), you’ll probably carry the bag with that big brand name spelled out close to your body (rather than out in the open for all to see). Yeah, it’s a Dior bag, we got it lol). Anyway, I guess I need to use this bag often to justify the price I bought it for…and I hope the stitching/embroidery doesn’t come unDone in a short amount of time.

It would have been great if they actually allowed personalization of this bag (and not just the classic monogram Oblique Book Tote)

blankto appease the narcissists in all of us (haha, or just me)?

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR everyone! 2 nights to go!!
