DIOR SADDLE BAG REVIEW POST
Hey guys !How are you doing lately ?
It’s been a month since fashion month ended but I still feel tired , anyways today we are going to talk about my favorite fashion week bag the DIOR SADDLE BAG .
Yep , this post is going to be a detailed review of the DIOR SADDLE BAG .
Well , I remember this bag from sex and the city , there was this scene with Carrie and Charlotte that is very strong in my mind and guess what Carrie was wearing a DIOR SADDLE BAG .
So who’s interested in a Dior saddle bag review !!!? Yeahhh!!!!
I love that scene and I love this bag even more .
This bag was a thing during 90’s and early 2000’s , I was in kiddegarden then so obviously I couldnt afford it . But this bag was an iconic piece for the house of Dior back then , it was a huge must have for every fashionista . And now it is 100% back and maybe more iconic than ever ! Everybody is talking about this bag like Harpers Bazaar , Elle
This bag is the proof that we should never give away iconic designer pieces with logos or special shapes or special hardware etc. In therealreal.com , the DIOR SADDLE bags before the trend hit were sold for 400 euros and maybe cheaper and now a vintage one costs around 1000 euros the least!!!!

So I guess that you now understand the reason why a Dior saddle bag review is so much needed , because you need to know everything about this bag and be ready when the time comes for you to buy one and to be honest you shouldn’t delay!!
OMG! The price for the vintage pieces is now almost triple than it used to be ! If you want to buy a VINTAGE DIOR SADDLE bag , now it’s the time .
It’s rumoured that there is a waiting list for the new edition of the DIOR SADDLE bag , so buyers prefer to buy vintage pieces and this will defenitely increse the prices for the vintage saddles even more in the future .
Where can I buy the DIOR SADDLE bag ?
Well you have two options , you can buy the vintage one from second hand-vintage retailers like therealreal.com , vestiaire collective.com , rebag.com , thredup.com , luxuryresale.net , whatgoesaroundnyc.com and many many other or you can buy the new edition of the DIOR SADDLE in dior boutiques .
But you have to know that there might be a waiting list for this bag in DIOR so if you would like the new edition you’ll propably have to wait or again ,if you are lucky , you could find it second handed .
What’s the difference between the vintage one and the new edition saddle bag ?
First of all , the Budget . You can find a vintage saddle bag for 1000-1800 $ right now , but the new saddle costs from 2350$ to 8500$ .Plus the fact that you have to wait for a new model because of the huge waiting list .
Another difference , is that the vintage one doesn’t have any strap attached , when on the other hand the new saddle bag comes with a stylish strap .
If you are searching for this beauty for a while now , you’ve probably have heard that it’s not practical at all . And thats so true espesially for the 90’s model. During the 90’s women didnt have any iphone plus so now I see why the vintage model is a little uncomfortable .
Yes , I’m not going to lie , for me it’s not easy to have the saddle as my everyday bag because it can’t fit my wallet . But since Maria Grazia Chiuri brought the iconic design back in Dior’s fall 18 runway , she changed the dimensions so we can fit a few stuff in .
Nevertheless this bag is my absolute favorite atm and I’m so obsessed with it and of course I carry a smaller wallet when I’m taking this bag with me , but it’s so so so worth it!!!!!
So during fashion week I saw a lot of blogger friends wearing the new model and I noticed that this bag was thicker than my bag . So the new edition model definitely has much bigger compartments and fits a lot more .
I also noticed that the vintage model can be found in so many different absolutely wonderful designs .For example , yesterday in a Facebook group I saw an amazing pink vintage dior saddle bag with the cutest little flowers!
What can I fit inside in a DIOR SADDLE BAG ?
As I already said , these bags are not the best every day bags because of their capacity and shape , which otherwise is so unique and beautiful .
I’m not sure that you can fit your wallet , agenda and make up kit inside both the vintage and new one but you can have your lipstick and phone in for sure . And for those who were not familiar with the saddle until now , I guess that you now know why a Dior saddle bag review is necessary !
If you would like to have the dior saddle bag as your everyday bag then it’s better to buy the new one because it’s thicker and you can find it in different sizes to choose from.
But you must always have in your mind that a bag with this shape is not as handy as a bigger tote bag , like for example a lady Dior bag .
So in the vintage dior saddle you can put an iPhone plus , a small wallet and your lipstick .
And as for the new model , you can buy the biggest size so you can be a little more flexible but your make up kit will still stay outside .
How much will a DIOR SADDLE BAG cost me ?
Well , as I already mentioned in this dior saddle bag review the vintage one will cost you around 1000 $ the least . But I believe that this price will increase in 2019 because of the big demand .
So , if you want my advice , buy a vintage one as soon as possible ! You don’t want to pay 2000 $ for a 90’s model of the DIOR saddle or 3000 $ for a new one ! So hurry !
What are the dimensions of the VINTAGE DIOR SADDLE ?
The dimensions of the vintage model are:
WIDTH : 26 CM
HEIGHT : 20 CM
DEPTH : 5 CM
How can I wear my DIOR saddle bag ?
Literally with everything ! I have worn my saddle bag with my jeans , my satin pyjama look ( which has been featured in HARPERS BAZAAR ) and with a long dress for a night out with Tarik , I’ve even worn it with a gown to attend a wedding , ohh I have styled this amazing bag with sweatpants for more sporty chic looks .
So , it’s a bag you can wear from day to night . And believe me , it will upgrade your whole look and style! So I hope this Dior saddle bag review helped you with some styling tips as well
Is DIOR SADDLE BAG worth the hype ?
My answer is a big Yes ! It’s an iconic piece which became a huge trend twice in 20 years , so even if it disappears again in 2-3 years , I believe it will return again in the future to make an even bigger bam!!
It’s a very unique piece , it has very specific shape that you don’t see at H&M or any other high street brand . For me it’s luxury .
Maybe the shape will not work out especially if you want it for your everyday bag but it will definitely change your style . It’s a very good investment for your style and wardrobe . And these are some of the reasons why I wanted to do a Dior saddle bag review so bad !!
