Aud-Shops | Bag Love feat Shopbop
Its finally coming to the end of the year, November is mummy's birthday and December is Christmas that means its present time.
I've been thinking what else to get for mummy as her present this year other than the coming oversea family trip this November. It is our first oversea family trip together, I bet it will be fun!
Remember the bags I asked for your opinion in the previous post? (Read it >>here<<). I really like the bags especially this Selma Printed Large Two Zip Tote from Michael Michael Kors, $378.
I almost got one of them for myself but then I thought why not get a handbag for mummy as her present too? Anyway her longchamp is already old and dirty. Now, since I am planning to get 2 bags, I will have to choose the bags again due to budget. The two listed above, maybe next time.
Surprisingly, with limited budget there's nice bags available too. After short listing them, I think I will be getting this Grainy Heritage Satchel from Madewell, $218. This timeless Madewell satchel is made with soft, wrinkled cowhide leather. Topstitched seams lend a casual element, whereas the gold-tone hardware adds low-key shine. The zip top opens a spacious, lined interior with 3 pockets. It comes with an adjustable strap and double rolled handles.
and this Large Docente Tote Monserat De Lucca, $247. A sophisticated Monserat De Lucca tote rendered in smooth leather. Polished gold-tone hardware adds minimalist shine, and an inset magnet gathers the laser-cut top line. The unlined interior contains 2 zip pouch pockets, and a detachable twill zip pouch contains 3 pockets. Slim handles and optional, adjustable shoulder strap.
Both are simple yet classy. It is perfect for an everyday bag. I like both pieces but I will let mummy choose which one she prefers.
Other than an everyday bag, I am now on a hunt for laptop sleeve for my new laptop which I received a week ago. It was a surprised gift from Kareshi. I will blog about it, so stay tune. Shopbop.com does carries quite a few laptop sleeves and here are the two that I am considering.
First will be this Adults Suck Neoprene 13" Computer Case by Marc by Marc Jacobs, $62.00 in Knockout pink which is exclusive for shopbop. It features an enameled logo plate and raised logo lettering with zip closure and lined. Is this pink too outstanding or should I get black which is more versatile?
Another one that I am considering will be this Le Pavillion Laptop Sleeve from Kate Spade New York, $60.00. It is made of Polka-dotted neoprene with a glossy logo plate trims the front. The top zip opens to a padded, faille-lined interior. Polka dots will never get out of date and never goes wrong with any outfit. Should I get this?
Other than present for mummy, laptop case for myself, I would love to get something for kareshi too.
Have I mentioned that shopbop.com carries men items too? They have a range of male items available at http://www.eastdane.com/.
I am thinking to get kareshi a backpack as his has torn. He has a long body hence the backpack must be long enough to not look awkward on him. These are the few that I have shortlisted.
Little America Backpack by Herschel Supply Co. $100. A nylon backpack inspired by mountaineering. The top-loading main compartment has a padded laptop sleeve, small side pockets, and a pass-through port for headphone wires. The opening cinches shut with a drawcord and is covered by a flap. Key clasp in the front pouch. All straps have magnetic closures. It has padded shoulder straps and back, Lined. This backpack has a more fun and young look.
Brooks England Hackney Utility Backpack, $240. A canvas backpack designed with the cyclist in mind. The roll-top design protects the unlined interior, which is equipped with a laptop sleeve and organizer pockets. Also, there's exterior stash pockets at the base. It has webbed nylon shoulder straps, leather trim and brushed metal hardware. I feel maybe kareshi will prefer this more.
Brooks England Pickwick Day Pack, $250. Roll-top construction keeps out the rain and snow and allows for various sized loads. 2 organizer pockets inside and 2 stash pockets on the exterior. Adjustable webbed shoulder straps with a chest harness. Brushed metal hardware and leather trim. I love this color! This is very Japanese feel. Very different from the others. I think kareshi will like this too!
Kareshi has his unique taste on things (the designer sense I guess) so it's very hard to gage his liking. Among these three, I believe he will like the second and third but I think he will like the last one more. I'm gonna save up for this, hopefully before Christmas. Hopes he will like what I'm gonna get for him.
