"No woman I know could ever be a terrorist.
Put a bomb in a Gucci bag? Oh, no way
!" - Joan Rivers

Like any hot-blooded women, I adore Ryan Reynolds. Eh bukan. Terganggu seketika dengan lagu Alanis Morisette. How she ever got Ryan Reynolds to propose to her was beyond my lojik akal. That’s mean, eh? But come on, didn’t you see the Hugo Boss ad? He’s smoking hot weh!

Tersasar. What was I saying? Oh OK, like any hot-blooded women, I adore handbags. While for most, shoes are their thing, I must say that I am not so much into shoes. I like comfy, cute shoes but that’s that. I don’t browse through websites reading about and looking hungrily at the cutest wedges, ballerina flats, 6 inches heels and what not.

But handbag is a different story. I adore cute handbags :) But I’m no bagaholic because I don’t know the latest collections or the must-haves of the season. Besides, I don’t own an LV, which I think, disqualifies me entirely from calling myself a bagaholic. Hahaha. Kidding.

The first thing yang aku akan tengok bila nampak perempuan, selepas muka dia, ialah handbag dia. Well OK, if she’s pushing a cool-looking stroller, then that’s the first thing. Kemudian handbag. Once I saw a lawyer with a vintage-inspired sling bag and I found myself immediately liking her. Turned out she's really cool tau. Heh.

A nude, leather sling bag is a wardrobe staple, in my opinion. Kelihatan tegas tapi kasual, macam mana entah (obviously this is not a fashion blog). Which is why once I laid eyes on this Mahogany beauty (well, Mahogany is not nude but whatever), I was instantly in love.

Darling, even though you have been around 8 years before I was even born, I have a feeling that they tailor-made you especially for me. And now, 37 years later, you’re a living proof that good things will stand the test of time. Chewah. Drama.

In fact, I love almost all handbags from Coach Original Collections and the above are my favourites; Court bag, since 1974. Janice’s Legacy, since 1994. Station bag, since 1983. City bag, since 1987. Willis, since 1993. Rambler’s Legacy, since 1989.

It’s true that great design will never go out of style. I want them all! Hahaha semua memang mahu, but you know I’m just gonna end up donning my RM70 Mango sling bag ke sana ke mari. But a girl can always dream and ogle and desire, can’t I?

I can already see my husband’s disapproving face. Haish.

Kak Am,

My hubby once said 'Kenapa nak beli handbag mahal-mahal? Duit boleh keluar sendiri ke dari bag tu?'


Marliza Radzi said...

Reena: Brown handbags memang menganggu jiwa :)

Perfume Rack: Memang pedas. Hahaha!

Suka Janice Legacy!

Marliza Radzi said...

Indah kan?

Ahsuez said...

Babe, I want them all too! Craaaazy!!

One for to carry my laptop, another one for shopping, another one for day out with friends, another one to pair with my maxi dress, another one for dinner date with hubby and another one to accesorize my jumpsuit.

Perlu cari RM5k kalau begini.
