Personal Ivory Deco

This also arrived today – my Personal Ivory Deco from Bouteia on eBay. It will join my Ebony Deco in Personal size and Amethyst Deco in Pocket size.

I love this model. I loved them utterly from the day they appeared but full price they were too expensive for me. I bought my Ebony and my Amethyst at 80% discount over the summer and this one I got from bouteia on eBay. As you can see it is a really luxurious binder and is absolutely and utterly untouched. All the plastic seals are still in place, as is the original 2011 calendar.

The clasp on this binder is a thing of beauty. I wish more binders had this kind of detail. The skin they use is also lovely. The official description of the binder was thus:

Wonderfully decadent, the Deco personal organiser echoes a bygone era of glamour and elegance. Material : This Art Deco inspired organiser is crafted from glossy Italian calf leather with a micro crocodile print. Indulgent features include a polished diamond-cut clasp, cream pigskin suede interior and luxury cream stationery. Ivory color is a dark cream. Design Features Ring mechanism size: Six rings of 23mm. Left: Six vertical credit card pockets with full-length pocket behind. Full-length zipped pouch. Pen loop. Right: Full-length pouch with popper opening.

  1. Oh my goodness. It’s breathtaking. I know you usually say those things about sunsets or the sea or a mountain… But what can I say, It’s just love, blinding love. It’s so difficult to find anything like it in Mexico, I could get my hungry paws on a personal finsbury, but I cannot help going over all the other planners and Ohhh Ahhh… Like Porn. Filofax porn.
