I’ve been through hell and back just for this Mulberry Bayswater in Congo leather. After three days of working on the missing postman’s lock and the carrying problem, I finally managed to totally fix it and I even attached a detachable strap from another Gucci bag so I can carry it messenger style!

And then there were five!
New addition to my Doc Martens collection. The one with the strap-and-buckle detail. =)

I’ve been watching Fashion TV for almost an hour and they have featured Liu Wen a lot. I admit that I did not pay much attention to her before, even though I know of her existence. But her various backstage interview made me fall in love with her. She was very eager to express herself in the questions thrown at her and I was really impressed on how intelligible and sincere her answers were. What I noticed the most was the constant mention of her family. Being a child born from China’s one-child policy, her parents are very lucky to have this bomb for their one shot. She seemed to be really close to her parents and that is very admirable. <3
From now on, I will keep an eye on her (and sweet Sui He as well!)

TIWOE (Things I Won on Ebay) #21

I know that I’ve previously mentioned that I won’t be buying any clutch / pouch because I have already salvaged my LV toiletry case six days ago for the same purpose. Well, I have already paid for this black vintage Christian Dior zipped pouch. It arrived in the mail few hours back and I was really excited. But when I opened it, I noticed that it was bigger than what I originally expected and the original listing seemed to show a plain black one. HOWEVER, this is much better than what I hoped for and the design was extremely discreet and less monogram-y. Dior doesn’t have a lot of monogrammed stuff unlike Gucci and Louis Vuitton, except the Girly stuff and another pattern they produced before.

It isn’t the most roomy but it can snugly fit inside a long wallet, a coin purse, a wallet and a regular-sized umbrella! I looked on Ebay.com and a similar item with the monogram material is currently for sale at US$ 129.00 (US$ 9.00 shipping not included). I’d like to think that I got a very good deal considering that I only paid wayyyyyyyy less than that amount. ^_^
