Not A Bagaholic

I've never been a bag person. Sure, I absolutely love shoes but with bags, I just make sure I have one in basic colors, black, white, and brown. Bags just doesn't excite me like what shoes do. Maybe because bags are more expensive than shoes. Hahaha!

For a number of weeks now, I've been obsessing on these bags
Cambridge Satchels and the Mulberry Alexa. I've been seeing these cuties on quite a number of fashion websites and magazines and I've been dying to get myself one. Good thing we have a local distributor for Cambridge Satchel in the country but it's just too bad it cost more than five grand depending on its size. For a cheapskate like me, I just can't get myself to spend that amount on a bag. How many packs of disposable diaper and infants milk would I be able to buy for Php5000? Yes, that's the practical mommy in me thinking!

I read on one blog (I forgot where exactly) that there is no copyright law in the fashion industry. So I'm confident I'll find a cheaper alternative (not fake) that would fit my taste and budget. And boy, did I find one! I just opened my multiply account and the first thing I saw was a post by Therapy BaSo I have to look for a cheaper alternative and boy, did I found one! gs that these Alexa and Cambridge satchels-like bags were open for preorder. And at freaking Php999 only! So I paid my deposit and after two agonizing weeks, I got mine! Yey!

So, Cambridge satchel - check! Alexa bag - hmmm... maybe not now. I'm planning on expanding my shoes collection. Like what I've said, I've not a bagaholic.

I don't like Cambridge satchels that much. Para kasing masyadong "boxy". But the Alexa bag, I like.

Kuripot din ako pagdating sa bag. Kaya puro wishful thinking na lang. Hehe.
