  2. Balenciaga’s Shopping Tote

    April 27, 2017 by barbara

    I am sure you have seen the latest Shopping Tote from Balenciaga which has taken the internet by storm.  Why?  Well, the eye-catching blue bag is indeed a very nice-looking tote which I would not mind having because it is so spacious that even the kitchen sink could fit in.  However, this high-end fashion company’s design is so similar to Ikea’s blue shopping bag.  The blue tone, the trapezoidal shape and wide straps are so alike.  There are a couple of differences such as the price.  The Balenciaga’s Shopping Tote is $2,145 while the Ikea’s shopping bag cost a mere 99 cents.    Balenciaga’s bag is made from glazed leather while Ikea’s is made from recyclable polypropylene material.

  4. Current Love – Crossbody Bags

    November 8, 2015 by barbara

    I am on the lookout for a bag that would fit all my essentials without weighing me down.  I am getting shoulder pains from carrying around my things in a shoulder bag.  That is why my current obsession is Crossbody bags.  I love the idea of not having to lug a bag around my arm and that it can keep my hands free.  It would definitely lessen the strain on my shoulders and gives me better posture.  Spotted these beauties at Madewell.  Time for some shopping.

  5. Brown Shopping Bag

    March 11, 2014 by barbara

    After I was done looking for Brochure Printing Services, I stumbled upon this really cool-looking Waxed Canvas Market from Food52.com.  This Market Bag takes on the iconic shape and convenience of the brown paper shopping bag.  It is made from sturdy cotton canvas and sewn into a tote.  You all know how much I like the brown paper bag right?  Each bag is waxed by hand using organic beeswax.  It is a perfect reusable shopping bag.


  6. Bento Bag

    December 13, 2013 by barbara

    Bento bags are not only great for food.  They can be used to store yarns, fruits and pretty much just anything.  I love the concept.  They can be used for just about anything. It is so functional and unobtrusive.  All you have to do is tie it close and stuff them into another bag. I love the fabric on these cleverly designed bento bags.  Make a good gift too.  Available at FringeSupplyCo.com.

     


  7. Wedge Bag

    October 19, 2013 by barbara

    This Wedge Bag is just what I have been looking for all these while.  I could feel some butterflies in my stomach when I first laid my eyes on it.  It is thick, firm and I love the bright lemon yellow colour.  This minimalist designed leather bag is just simple modern and gorgeous.  Available at ScabbyRobot.com.


  8. Eco-Friendly Totes

    March 30, 2013 by barbara

    While looking for cheap cigars, I stumbled upon these cute eco-friendly totes at The Happy Owls.  These chic coffee totes are handsewn and unique.  I love the texture of the recycled coffee sack.  They are reversible and features super strong polypro handles.  These burlap coffee totes make very good gifts and is just perfect for those who want to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle.  I would love to get one on my birthday *wink*

    I just chanced upon this online store called Rice.  It is a Danish home wares and accessories company that is well known for their colourful melamine, handmade baskets and storage and hand glazed Italian tableware.  I was so excited to see so many colourful and funky bags from Rice.   Below are just some of the ones that caught my eyes.

  10. Anya Hindmarch Spring & Summer 2012

    February 2, 2012 by barbara

    While the spouse is busy checking out taps and dies, I was at Anya Hindmarch checking out the latest bag collection.   I spotted this beauty and could not take my eyes off it.  It is the Nude Velvet Calf Nevis Raw Tote.  This is the iconic Anya Hindmarch style.   This large tote features many pockets and interior compartments.  The handle is hand-stitched and finished with a subtle gunmetal Anya Hindmarch bow.   Would love to have this bag for Valentine’s Day *wink*
