FASHION, Furla, Shopping, Uncategorized FURLA CALF LEATHER TOTE BAG 5 August 2010

Mum’s new casual travel bag – the Furla calf leather tote!

We were wandering around the Xintiandi area, and randomly popped into the Furla boutique. Mum immediately zero’d in on this bag, as she’d been looking for a high bag that would fit in her papers/notes whenever Dad and her travel. Since they travel a LOT, it made sense to get a bag that could 1) squash down in a luggage bag, 2) be ultra light, and 3) fit all the specs she wanted.

And this was it 🙂 We picked out the muted baby blue colour after much deliberation – I think it gives nice colour to an outfit and it’s oh so drapey and slouchy!!! The calf leather is terrific, so smooshy and smells divine. Plus, it looks lovely on Mum! She doesn’t own any really good bags in that shape/size/style, so it’s perfect 🙂


1st Furla bag Mum or I have ever owned

Arggghhh the soft luscious squashy leather!

I stole it for modelling pics 😛

Fits in magazines/papers really well, and smells soooo gooood…

    Nice. I like your romper as well. When I first read the title, I thought you had gone shopping and thought to myself “What about her shopping ban?” Haha.

    This bag is so cute! I’m looking for a good tote bag. Did it by chance come in a muted pink color? Also…I was wondering, do you have any opinions on the Longchamp brand as far as quality? ^____^

      No pink unfortunately…

      I’m not a fan of Longchamp as it’s widely faked here and everywhere else. SInce it’s largely plain canvas, I’d probably prefer the fake which is way cheaper and probably similar quality (compared to fake leather bags that often aren’t as good, by far)

          Yes I love LeSportsac!! Same quality as Longchamp IMHO… but way cheaper and the designs are great, I especially love the Tokidoki range 🙂
