Merry Christmas ladies! Can’t believe its been 6 mos since the last post! Hope we all have more to post about in the new year!!
May you all have the Merriest of Christmases and the Healthiest and Happiest New Year!
So I have 15 weeks till this little peanut comes out (if I make it to a full 40 weeks). With that, I felt I needed to purchase just 1 more bag till my life is overtaken by diapers and bottles.
Given its summer, I thought a new light summer bag would be appropriate. I’ve always been afraid of white bags but I figure if I found one that didn’t hang low (I had a white bag in the past that turned blue from my denim) and wasn’t a top handle (will get dirty at the handles from all the handling), it would be ok.
So here she is, I call her my “last hurrah!” (I’m covering my baby bump! hehehe)
I was a bit skeptical before it actually arrived because I thought the white would be too “white”…but I love it! The size is perfect – its the medium, which is quite sizeable. Can you imagine how large the large size would be??
Ok ok…I had another “last hurrah”. Reminds me of a rattan chair. haha I swear..this is the last!
Now its time to focus on a diaper bag!
Congratulations ATQ! Baby Girl! Since NZA has been looking for a baby bag – we had been discussing how convenient LeSportsac bags were but nothing great to look at – well – problem solved! Welcome LeSportsac x Joyrich! (grabbed pics from various blogs)
I think this quilted black patent one is pretty nice. And really, they are so light and so handy – I am very happy with my polkadot nylon one Check out more of their 2011 collection here.
Bedrest and Bags.
Okay – so this is my body’s way of punishing me and I am literally forced to rest. My liver has gone all Rambo on me and I have to let it chill by not letting it work so hard. So bed rest and tv and online shopping are the only things that I can literally do. Hepa A is a bitch but I’m glad it’s curable. Watch where you eat and always wash your hands, although I do that regularly, I guess I was just unlucky but I get the much needed rest I actually need.
I have been neglecting any form of arm candy because of all our house renovations but when this is finally over, I was thinking of “rewarding” myself (ya, for all the hard bedrest) with a Proenza Schouler. I do love the PS1 Satchel but I really feel that it doesn’t fit me — so what do you think of this: PS1 Keep All Small textured-leather bag
Beauty isn’t she? I think the small one is a good size for this style, the large looks like a weekender – beautiful too but way too big. I think the two tone leather tote is cute too but too casual, beachy for the price I think…
As for my house project – hub says it looks great – furniture arrived but I haven’t been allowed to go see… the architect and hub seem happy with results so based on that, it should be coming along well… he sent pics of the living room – everything covered in plastic- he must think I wanted to use my imagination instead of seeing the actual place – hahaha.
I’ll keep you posted… well, what else can I do… sigh.
Jil Sander Market leather bag
I just got the lightest tote in the world – it is really so cute… it was the perfect pick-me -up for this bag deprived girl I think I’m going through shopping withdrawal… hehehe
Banana Republic Market Tote in Cognac
Crafted from high-quality buttery soft leather, our hold-all tote has virtually no hardware so that it’s incredibly lightweight. Versatile enough for carrying work files or weekend travel basics. Raw, pinking shear edges.
- 100% Leather.
- Magnetic closure.
- Inner pocket. Unlined.
- Measures 15″ x 20″ x 4″. Handle drop: 9 1/2″.
It REALLY is incredibly light, like carrying tissue. But, I must say, the leather does bruise easily but I think the distress adds charm to the bag. Another cute detail is that it doesn’t look like a normal square tote when carried – since it is so soft, the sides turn in so it’s a whole new shape: cell phone pic:
Great buy if you ask me
So, the reason why I’ve been shopping deprived or have limited my shopping to furniture and fixtures is that my forever renovations are finally coming to a close! My “minor” job turned into a 90% overhaul of our unit and after 5 months, it’s finally taking shape.
May I present, the hallway…
I should have taken before and after pics but oh well, just so happy it is finally, finally, finally coming together. Hope I can show you new pics soon of everything.
VBH Brera Double-Zip Satchel… love this!
