Living in... Singapore, Shopping, Uncategorized LOEWE SILK & LEATHER BAG, CROCS 16 March 2007


SO WHAT DID I BUY…………………….??

Haha, just a teaser! Whilst I was at the sale, the Loewe boutique was also offering some great deals. I spotted this GORGEOUS bag – pure soft silk held together with a supple leather handle. Hobo-style, so it slouched beautifully.. and the color just sold me – a brilliant cheery blue that would look fantastic as a casual bag with jeans!

I’m not going to announce prices because I find it kinda annoying/tacky when random people point at me and ask me how much this costs and how much that costs – it’s all in really bad taste IMHO. Unless of course it was me that first told them the price 😛 So I’m just going to say that the price was slashed by $1,200, THAT’S how good the sale was! Yay! I’m really happy with it and it’s quite a rare design, so at least if I get sick of it I can always sell it on eBay and probably end up selling it for more than what I paid 😛 But for now, I don’t intend to sell it at all, as I just love it! More of the (standard) Loewe handbags here, if you’re interested.

No pics of me carrying it yet though.. too lazy 😛

The not-so-great thing about living away from my parents is that not only do I hardly see them, but I don’t really get a chance to take them out and buy/give them stuff 🙁 So this time I gave Mum my Louis Vuitton Trouville because I think it looks nicer on her than it does on me 😛 It’s classy and suits her!

But anyways, I found the PERFECT thing to get for our whole family – CROCS! I’d never really noticed them before.. or rather I had, but I thought they were UGLY 😉 But this week, they released the new Capri style – which look fantastic and are so comfortable. Couldn’t resist and none of us have super-comfy flip flops, so it was well justified 🙂


CROCS for the whole family, haha!

    Oooh that Loewe bag is cute! I couldn’t imagine paying the original price for it.. $1,200 off! Damn!

    Are Crocs those ugglllyy plastic shoes with the holes in them, that everyone says are the most comfortable thing ever? lol. The thongs don’t look that bad though.. might get me a pair of them hehe.

      The Loewe was such a bargain I just COULD NOT resist, haha! It’s such an unusual bag too, I love it 🙂

      And yes, crocs are those really ugly shoes 😉 I’m glad now they look more normal!

    i don’t like the original crocs that look like clogs, but the new ones that are flip flops are way better looking and way more comfy…hee hee…

    I was really surprised when I saw the header about Crocs, and was already preparing a snarky comment about how hideous they were (just kidding), but those are really nice! I actually do think that they are really comfy, but can’t quite bring myself to buy a pair of the ugly clogs. We also have very limited styles here too, so we never get any of the newer, slimmer styles. I like the store though, it looks so cheery!

    • beverly posted on March 16, 2007 at 1:05 am

      Hahha I would’ve done that too – previously I’d sneered at Crocs, they just looked kinda ridiculous? I was quite shocked to see these Capris, they look totally normal, haha!

      Yeah apparently it’s 3 scarves sewn together or something.. I just like how silky it feels 😛

      The new Croc design is so nice! Just like normal flip flops, just that they feel a lot better. I’m scared off that chunky fat design 😛

        i dont like the chunky one either, looks weird, plus there is so many imitation nowadays.

      Yeah :X I don’t mind if people ask for something that they’re about to buy themselves, and they want to make sure that they’re not being ripped off or anything. But I CANNOT STAND people that just ask for the sake of being nosy – ugh! 🙁 Besides, if they want to know, it’s easy to look it up online to find out..

      But thank you! I like how cheery the bag is, and it’s fairly informal too so I can wear it with jeans 🙂

      I agree, the regular Crocs look so strange, esp on my skinny feet. THese are so much nicer IMHO 🙂
