what do I look for in a bag?

what do you look for in a bag?

flexibility about the occasions you can wear it on?
style factor? (new or old season)
the amount of hidden pockets?

I try not to think of brand, but it does sway me abit.
I remember this really awesome quote

"when buying a branded bag, cover the label and then decide if its a nice bag"
which I think alot of people don't do.

those little interlocked "Cs" can be veryvery tempting.

the. chanel. classic. jumbo. OMG LOVELOVELOVE.
-sniff sniff.
and thats the size on people, persoanlly I would like it bigger but, hey thats just me.
(when it comes to chanel, I have "SUCKER" written all over my face)

personally I am NOT swayed if I see a celeb wearing or carrying something, but thats only because I don't like following celebs, be it in magazines or style. Their taste level is not that high, their stylists are the one behind everything, so in that way I think of celebs as... mannequins or models. You wouldn't buy everything Jessica Stam wears on runway right? Obviously because shes wearing someone else's taste and style. The same thing ALMOST applies to celebs, of course they can say I don't like this but ultimately its the stylist chioce, also they are like... walking ads. bleh.

I'm not saying this is for all celebs, me thinks it applies to a good deal of them tho.

sorry I got side tracked,

the things I look for in a bag, in order:

1. design
2. size
3. size
4. size
5. comfort (accessible to the inside of the bag, easy to carry)
6. quality
7. amount of detail in the bag, pockets, design so on.
8. brand
9. price

2. -4. SIZE okay obviously you can see I always look at size first, thats really a personal preference, I need alot of space because I tend to dump things into my bag.

my friends refer to my bag as doraemon's pocket.

so... size, that probably means I go for classic totes yes?


1. Design. I don't like totes because they generally look the same. thats why design comes in first and foremost.

which is way i'm utter and totally IN LOVE with the 31, Rue Cambon chanel bag, its leather but it look like a paper bag. utter cute-ness max.

okay this probably wasn't the best example for a nice tote bag but it came up as one of the first hits on google.
totes.... sometimes have zippers, I find it abit odd when theres no closure, like someone can just reach in, my friends have done this to me countless times.

if I DO buy a tote, it's definitely able to last.

5. Comfort, I can't stand carrying things in my hand or slinging it on my elbow, I think its a gift if you can get used to that because you will have alot more choice when it comes to bags that way. Due to me always carrying alot of shit around, this is simply not possible.

so I need something that I can sling over my shoulder, the best would be a backpack style.
which is why this bag is what I carry on a daily basis now, you may think it's fugly but I adore it, mega cute-ness. $17 from the HK's ladies market. mega cheap, quality not quite there but I love it regardless.

6. Quality, if i'm willing to spend money on something I have to know it will last me, I kinda trash my bags ><>
er... I know uppity brands have been releasing fabric totes, so everyone can get a piece of the brand, at a much cheaper rate, but honestly I don't think its worth it. at all.

and also why are they always in a muslin colour or made out of thin cotton, doesn't look very durable to me.

7. Secondary Design, baby details on the handle or the inside of the bag, little pockets to put your phone in etc. Very important because I always have to reach in for my ezlink card and wasting 5 minutes to find an ezlink card in my bag everytime is just not practical.
the chloe paddington comes with slots next to the opening of the bag, great for handphones and ezlink cards!

its no secret i'd like for a paddington.

8. -9 . Price and Brand obviously look at brand before price, not flushing 3 k down the drain on some unknown brand that I know nothing about that may just be cheating me of money..

hermes and gucci rtw fall 2010

hermes rtw fall 2010, i die.

its so pretty, i know its looks like damn normal, but it has the Put Together look and all these small details which i love :D

lets begin.
wtheck croc leather shoulders how can one not die? (idk if its faux or not, i may sound like an idiot here lol.)
wha damn nice. super mega tapered dress with a leather jacket super GORGE.
jacket is a damn good staple.
eeehehehehe, i love the texture and colours. the jacket damn cute, i don't know about owning it, but its something i would run to in the store just to look at and see up close.
ditto to image above, just a different colour. not a big fan of this colour tho, it looks like autumn leaves on the floor.
wtheck is that jacket! omg why does it look so cool? the inside one with the panels coming down the front with the fur collar. and then the shrug long coat on the outside? maybe its one? i don't know, but undeniably cool.
AH OMG THAT SMALL BAG THING ON THE UMBRELLA, HOW CAN ONE NOT LOVE. wtheck is that. omg its a baby hermes bag. sheep skin if i'm not wrong.
how. cute. is. that. its like... a baby rabbit compared to a kettle. no comparison on cuteness.
the mummy bag, which i would love to own. so... class. lol. looks like you can just put it on your table to sayang all day and night cause it looks so soft >< BAG BAG BAG, ignore outfit.
AH HA love the coat, looks damn.................. Warm. lol and stylish-ly so!
okay this is (me think) definitely one jacket, and its one heck of a cool jacket. like a leather vest and a tailored fur on the outside. seriously one mega gorgeous jacket.
wah. okay i have to stop saying the word cool, but really what OTHER word can you describe this outfit? i've always been a big fan of leather jackets with knitted sleeves because your movement is so much more liberal. and i think it looks way nicer, idk, point of interest?
5/5 for this outfit, something that is endlessly classic.
omg a diagonal pocket on the chest, how much does that look like chanel's lastest bag?
i know alot of people who hate the new chanel patch bag, but i personally love it.
Heart. chanel send me bag? please mr.karl!

enter gucci.
personally, i'm not the greatest fan,

i infact hate their bags. the logo is damn auntie.

HOWEVER the clothes? i is impressed.

other than my obsession with thigh high boots, the jacket's fur colour is mindblowing, it looks like an illustration with pencils.
v.put together.
ignore outfit, BOOTS WTHECK, ANYONE WANNA DONATE ME A PAIR :D gucci, i'll love you for life if you send me a pair. please?

jacket + top combo, wah damn nice fabric combo.
and the styling for this is just crazy pretty, the tights match the neckline omgwtfbbq.


random fact:

i dreamt that eminem was my boyfriend last night HARHARHAR.
was a good dream (:
