WHY did i start a blog? I dont really know. I guess all those bag forums have not done enough remedial work to my addiction that i need to vent some more (hah, misery loves company-- i just want to share my misery over bag lusting to someone else!)

Today remains an uneventful bag day as I am pretty much grounded in on taking care of household issues which, i'd rather not be sharing for fear of putting you to sleep Ho-Hum (who wants to hear about my boring day at home doing household chores anyway :)

So let's rewind to yesterday's event!

I let go of my client's cream YSL horn bag yesterday after much hesitation. My seller wanted it sold at a certain price, but i soooo can't afford it right now because i'm saving up for something for our place (mommies, you know what i mean-- some things just have to take priority over bags SOMETIMES!) I'm frankly not TOO hot on YSL.. but this bag somehow has something that made me want it (or am i just being a bargain HOG again??) Isn't it nice?? *boohoo*



Sooo anyway after having let that bag go, (and note i was SOOO SAD to see it go) i went to greenbelt 4 (HAH!)

Went to YSL to take a peek. I've never owned a YSL bag before. I never jumped on the bandwagon when the MOMBASA was such a hot hot bag to own and carry. Though my clients were quick to quip that YSL bags are probably the least copied brand of bags, i never gave in to one. Anyway, soooo i walked into YSL and uh-oh, something caught my eye. It's a CHALK WHITE MOMBASA with the YSL logo in the front. TAG PRICE: Php 47,950 *this bag is already 30% off original price too!* Mental calculation: Wow that's like US$860! *think priorities please!*

Oh my God. What to do What to do. I liked it. A LOT. But damn, i wanted to buy my living room a new couch! (not a COACH, a COUCH)! I had to text my friend Daphne Osena-Paez. "Help, whatcha think of YSL bags?" And her reply didn't help either "I like YSL bags, they're real nice". Gee, thanks a lot D. You just got me more confused! :D

But tsk tsk, priorities please... and do i REALLY love this bag like i loved my CHALK CHLOE PADDINGTON (which I eventually sold)? I couldn't answer that question... So i left YSL with a heavy heart (but not THAT heavy), thinking (and hoping) maybe that bag won't get bought and will be further marked down in a month.. yeah wishful thinking!

Passed by LOUIS VUITTON and spoke with sales associate Abi briefly. She is too cute! So if you feel like spoiling yourself, trot over to LV and look for Abi-- she'll help you pick a bag! There are new collections of DAMIER and EPI bags-- the DAMIER bag looked like a cross between the RIBERA and the SPEEDY (not really my thing), and the EPI looked like a shorter PORTE DOCUMENTS bag. Has a slight resemblance to the HERMES PLUME.. Nice MYRTILLE BLUE color, but nah. The DENIM collection came out with the BAGGY PM which essentially looks like the NEO SPEEDY but is hobo-styled.


Now THIS baby is NICE! And the price tag? Php 71,500.
Hmm.. Hefffftyyyy.. and ahhh there's already a 20-woman waitlist. (HAH, bag not meant for me?!)

Sigh...ohhhh you know what, I'm secretly sorta lusting after a MURAKAMI SPEEDY in BLACK. My friend from Alabang (hehe you know who you are girl!) wants to sell me her preowned one for Php 65,000. Fairly cheap really, but I was kinda hoping for a more new-looking one. Dont ask me why-- i love bargains, but a newer BLACK MC SPEEDY is calling out to me. So let's see if i can cough up enough dough to buy one! SO MUCH FOR MY COUCH eh?!

Note to self: I saw the SPRING/SUMMER '06 collection of LOUIS VUITTON and thank God i didn't fancy any of the runway bags-- i just think the scarf bags are too 80s-- a decade which i would frankly not mind forgetting for now :D i was sooo into the Versace opulence that the LOUIS VUITTON S/S'06 collections reminded me of it. So NOT for me-- i am SO OVER that. (even if *note the word IF* LV's opulent bags are a hint of bag trends to come) So when these bags get offered to me by Rhea, i HAVE to say No. No. No....

ANYWAY, i have saved enough for a nice black bag which I will reveal once the bag arrives. For now, my day today is spent on dealing with household issues and those sporadic moments pondering about the YSL CHALK-WHITE MOMBASA, the LOUIS VUITTON DENIM BAGGY PM, and the LOUIS VUITTON BLACK MURAKAMI SPEEDY...

Tomorrow is a SATURDAY.. more household stuff to deal with.. and ahhh more time to think about those bags.......OR THAT COUCH!! HAVE a FUN WEEKEND, my fellow bag addicts!! :-) and keep checking out my site for the new stuff (http://tresormakati.tripod.com) !
