What's In My Bag | Proenza Schouler PS1 Review

I picked up this Proenza Schouler PS1 in Military about a year ago -- while I don't use it everyday, it's one of my favourite all-rounders: deceptively roomy, light to carry, and goes with everything.

This is the medium size, measuring 13" x 9" x 4", is just large enough for me to bring everything I need without giving me too much room to fit in the kitchen sink.  I used to be obsessed with the oversized bucket bags of the mid-to-late 00's, but I'm starting to embrace a more streamlined (ish) approach.

This bag can be carried in hand and worn cross-body, but fair warning: the strap is not quite long enough to be a traditionally slouchy messenger bag.  You'll see in the video that the 16" drop sits very high on me, especially with my freakishly long torso, but I almost prefer it because it reminds me of those one-strap backpacks in grade school.

I feel like I should have treated this bag with some sort of leather care, but I have no idea what products are safe to use on this leather.  Got advice? Leave it below!

The bag closure is a flip-lock closure, with two additional straps to keep the envelope flap down; for a more casual look (read: when I'm in a hurry and can't give a bleep), I'll keep the straps loose, but the straps do give the bag more detail.


  1. Loved the video and I really like the colour of your bag.

  2. I love your bag, it looks very chic and oh my goodness, glad to know I'm not the only one with mountain of receipts in my purse! LOL!

    1. Omg I don't even need them for anything usually! I have no idea why I keep them

  3. oh you you didn't! the PS1!!! lol i love the look of it but it sort of doesn't fit with what i need anymore. i would have totally used this when i was in school though since it looks more academic and the boxy shape would fit my files quite well. thats if i could have actually afforded it then...

    cute video! as always! love the skirt (i thought i saw something similar at H&M?)

    1. I use it as a weekend bag mostly -- like for one night at a friend's house, that bag is all I take with me.

      It's from Oak + Fort! I'm sure H&M has something similar though

  4. Ooo this is such a cool bag! Love love love! :-)


  5. Seriously one of my dream bags. I bought this Country Road rip off years ago but it grosses me out that it's an 'inspired' piece and not the real deal :p Love the colour of your wallet!

    1. Thanks babe! Im not usually a pink person but I've come to love this one :-)
