The Big One : My search for a bag has ended8:08:00 AM
Good morning everyone!
it was a really hectic day for me yesterday. I wasn't really able to sleep the night before, just trying to get everything ready for the launch of the two new designs. I really felt like I was going to just pass out of exhaustion the whole day, but once I reached home.. I just couldn't sleep. Sigh. I still couldn't sleep til about 2 am, wondering why I was wide awake.
Actually, I know why I was awake! Hehe.
After going through my favourite fashion blogs because I couldn't sleep earlier, I decided to browse through shopbop for some online window shopping. Yup, biiiiiggg mistake. I just discovered that they are having a great sale with discounts up to 25% for ALL full price and sale items. Seriously.? Yes, seriously. Check out the link to the discount code here.
So I decided to take the plunge and finally buy the bag I've been putting off from buying for the past few months. Hehe. I don't have a lot of bags or spend too much on them, but I just had to get the bag I chose! In fact, it was sold out just before I put it in the cart and I actually had to wait for 30 minutes before I refreshed the browser. Just my luck managed to get one available piece so I straightaway put it on MY cart. It might sound funny but at that moment it was war!
I think I spent a few hours browsing through all of the designer bags without realising it. Everything is included in the sale so a lot of the items are snapping up fast. Even the stuffs I reserved on my cart were released after thirty minutes, and in the end, they were all snapped up by other people.
So I finally did it. I finally bought my bag.
This was the first time I bought anything from Shopbop and I liked their simple 3 page payment interface.
It's not the bag everyone is expecting. It's not the bags I shortlisted in my previous blogposts. It's neither blue or pink/nude but it was just something that screamed out to me that I must have. There was another bag that I really, really wanted and would've been just perfect for me. But the bag I really wanted does not ship outside the US. It was such a pity, I was so disappointed because I was all set to pay and then only read about the tiny notice that it doesn't ship here. Broke my heart :(
Anyway, these were my shortlist. Guess which bag I bought! Hehe!
The Moschino Mini Bag
Anya Hindmarch Ebury Soft Mini Handbag
Phillip Lim 3.1 Pashli Small Stingray Satchel (Hint: This was the one they don't ship out of the US!)
Salvatore Ferragamo Miss Vara Mini Quilted Bag
Maison Martin Margiela Leather Mini ID Shoulder Bag
But guys, go check out the sale right now. I think a cool way would be to do a group purchase so that you can get better discounts. In fact, I might be back to scout for more bargain buys before the sale ends on the 1st of December 2014.
Happy Wednesday peeps!
