Thanks to some complimentary gift certificates I’d received, this Pour La Victoire Tate Satchel is my new carryall from Shopbop which is roomy enough to carry a bowling ball in there…LOL. Okay, the design and color is a tad boring but it fits my objective of having something sturdy and solid for a change. I’m definitely loving the buttery soft leather and the fact that it can function as both a shoulder bag as well as a hand carry.
As part of my fashion collaboration with Shopbop, I’m pleased to bring you news that the online store is going to have a big Thanksgiving sale on Wednesday, 21 November 2012. So if you’ve been eyeing something from the store, this might be a good opportunity to grab your desired item. As for me, I’ve been browsing through the store and picking out items I’m keen to get and in that list is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Trompe L’oeil Watch.
I bought myself two pairs of new shoes this week and one of them is a pair of sneakers. I recall the last time I wore sneakers was like 10 years ago. But because I don’t exercise anymore, I just don’t see a need for them really. Well, I’m not sure if I’ll get back to doing any serious exercises with them but they’ll definitely come in handy for some upcoming outdoor activities in the weeks ahead. Other than that, I doubt I’ll wear them much on a frequent basis because they are completely out of my fashion radar. But I kinda like the fuchsia color. If only I could find matching socks too.
I ordered a bag from Shopbop at the end of Tuesday and received the item on Friday noon, from US. Nothing really surprising, considering it used a courier service but the speed and efficiency really put some of our local online stores that advertises heavily but takes five days to deliver items to shame. Seriously, these local online stores should learn how to improve their delivery lead-time.
