That Pink Leather Bag

I got a little busy window shopping for bags today. Err, am I supposed to prepare something for my dearest? Ha, daughter and I already took care of that thing yesterday. We bought gifts for her teachers and for hubby at Shangrila Plaza so we're ready for Valentine's Day. Now, it's time to think of myself too. I already save enough money for it but not planning to do the purchase really soon. I just decided I won't be panic buying anymore 'cause it's just a waste of money. I will choose quality (over quantity) and use the product as long as I can. I began hunting for a leather bag again and here are some of the top results for the pink category.

I honestly really like the Michael Kors tote. It is pink and roomy. The fact that Michael Kors is one of the top 10 most popular bag brands worldwide makes me want it more. I wonder how much do they sell this in Manila. I made hubby call one of their stores in Istanbul and learned that they're charging 100% more. Wahhh!

The next thing that caught my eye is the Juicy Couture satchel. It looks so kikay. The hardware and the shining leather is very nice to look at. This bags kinda reminds me of Paris Hilton. Too bad it costs a lot if you buy American brands here in Manila.

Even I like these two bags a lot, I think I will settle into something more affordable. On our next vacation to Turkey this summer, I will surely visit leather local stores like Matraş, Inci and Desa other than the international brands. Wait, I have to look for more bag choices in either red or blue.



  1. aww, it's hard to choose really when everything is pretty.. I wish I could have them all. anyways, I would choose jet set travel among the three pink bags. a bit pricey! aawww

  2. As a mom myself also, I need a big bag (not that big though) where I can store my stuff and also my daughter's needs when we go out. I'd say, the MK bag is fit for what I need :)

    1. Same here. I always want a roomy bag 'cause I need extra space for my daughter's "pamalit", water, wipes, etc.

  3. i love the MK bag, too! Roomy and looks pretty!

  4. To be honest, all my bags are mostly neutral in color, unless the item was given to me.. I rarely spend on clothes and accessories so basically, I stick with timeless classics. But that doesn't stop me from wanting those bags you posted! Haha


  5. Definitely MK. 1st bag. Just pink and perfect!

  6. can i have all? coz they're all in hot hot hot pink! but MK is perfect! :)

  7. I like the Michael Kors one best because it's sleek and classy. Pink is such a difficult color to wear but I think you will have no problem with the MK bag. It's the best one among the three :)


Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!
