The 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli has been on my wishlist for awhile now. Originally I wanted the regular, larger size. But when the medium size came out, I know I had to have it! I chose a classic black and gold colorway so that I can wear it with pretty much everything. I have been using the bag everyday since I got it, which was about two weeks ago.
I love the shark embossed finish of the bag. Its a pebbled texture and its rough and rugged. Its not as easily prone to scratches as my other bags. I don't baby my bags but I also hate when it gets scuffed and scratched easily( I mean, don't we all..)
I think the most exciting feature of this bag is the expanding flaps. You can pull the zippers down for a very edgy aesthetic OR you can zip them all up and make it look more professional. The medium size measures 10" x 12.5" and it has a 4" handle drop. I think its the perfect size for me since I am only 5'4.
The Pashli also has an adjustable long strap so you can carry the bag as a cross body. Personally I love any bag with an option of a longer strap. You never know when you need to be hands free!
I don't carry much in my bags. Usually I have my wallet, makeup bag, sunglasses, cologne, and hand lotion. But as you can see the Pashli can fit a 13" MacBook Pro perfectly!
My only complaint is probably the push-lock closure. Its kind of difficult when I try to close it.. sometimes. Also, the hardware is a brushed gold finish... but I don't like how it scratches easily!
You can get the medium pashli for $825(here) or if you want the larger size you can get it for $895(here)
I hope you found this review helpful! Let me know if I missed anything!
