What Next?

Long time no blog! I didn't even realize that its been over a week since my last post until today! I've been busy running around taking care of Olivia, who unfortunately went into heat on Wednesday :( Not pleasant but she had her surgery today and hopefully she'll have a speedy recovery and I can pretend this week never happened. Besides watching my little baby run around with her butt in the air, howling at the top of her lungs, I've also been nervously waiting for my Italian splurge to clear customs and thankfully, it looks like it might get delivered to my friend some time next week. That means I probably wont get it until the week after but at least I know its not getting sent back to Italy! In the meantime, I'm already thinking about what to get next. Depending on how much monetary damage I do from now until my bday, I'm thinking I can squeeze another exotic out of my parents but we all know that its unrealistic to think that there will be no purse purchases in between my Italian splurge and my bday splurge :P So anyhow, here are some bags that in are currently in the running:

Proenza Schouler satchel. I like the fact that it works both on the shoulders and if you carry it by its short handles. Sorta looks like a ultra-chic school bag (for about 30 times as much as your old backpack from high school).

Chloe Sally shoulder bag. Sometimes (er, most of the time) all you need is leather in a gorgeous color and you're done. No need for extra zippers or locks or whatnot. Just you and the leather. In Sally's case, the delicate gold chain adds a little something extra but is not over-done. PS: I love purple with gold.

Gucci Hysteria. It has been literally years since I've gotten anything from Gucci so I feel a little weird actually considering a Gucci purse but I've been eying the Hysteria for awhile now so what the heck, perhaps I'll just go ahead and get it. Of course, I wouldn't go near the monogrammed version but the simple black leather version is calling to me.

This is what I have so far, I'll update this list as more potentials come to my attention.


**UPDATES: First of all...Olivia is doing just fine. She was a little out of it last night but she doesn't seem to be in any pain. Secondly...I went to SCP today and tried on Sally and the Hysteria. Right now, Sally is in the lead.

oh my, oh my, I was eyeing that Chole bag too. I was thinking about Paraty at the first place but then I think that style can wait...I don't really need to carry that style of bag right away...but this Chole bag especially i love purple w/ gold metal (sorry if it sounds I copy your words. :P) like this one. Super fabulous!!! i need to check it out in Vegas too.

I simply adore Gucci (well... I'm italian, maybe it obvious) and even if Hysteria isn't one of my favourite PE09 bag, this simple one is really nice. It will be a great purchase!

Hey Diamonds! I haven't had a chance to try the Proenza bag on...not sure what it'll look like IRL and how the leather is but definitely liking the style.

Hahaha...hi litlstrawberry!! I went to go check out the chloe purse today and I LOVE IT. The color is gorgeous, the leather is of course sturdy, and it look fabulous on!! Theres also a nice gray color but the purple is a bit more eye catching.

Hey Creusa! I went to Gucci today to finally try on the Hysteria. I loved how soft the leather was. I asked if they made it in ostrich and the SA said they did but shes not sure about right now...she said its around $7000. I think I'll stick to the regular leather version...

its between the sally and satchel for me. i really like the color of the satchel too. nice and understated.

Creusa said...

7000dollars? I confess I had to check out on the dictionary what "ostrich" means... Eeheheheh.
And this bag is calling me... Maybe I should think about it (in Italy it's sold at about 1450€, not so much if you think about the quality of the leather, the unique design and the "name").
Time to create a blogspot account!
