Now...I'm Crazy of Cole Haan's Bags....

Met Ika for lunch today....I felt like window shopping coz office today is quite a bore. Met Ika at 12pm and we start going from one designer shop to another....just to see if there is any bag(s) that I mightt fall in love with. You know what they say, pics can sometime be deceiving, and its best if we can see the actual stuff before we buy anything.

So we started at Tods, went around the 1st floor shops -TODS,Coach,Gucci, Prada, LV, Hermes, Chanel, Ferragamo, Dior - then went to the Melium group boutiques for Furla, Cole Haan and Aigner....we even paid Stuart Weizman for a visit, in case I can find "the" shoe.

The first few stores we went to does not interest either one of us...to come to think of it, we are a bit dissapointed with the choices they have. The Coach Bag I adore so much doesn't seem to feel right at the moment...it looks...hmm, how should I put it...normal.

Any bag above RM2k bag can't feel just "normal"....it has to feel great. Even the bags in TODS is a bit of a dissapointment. Of course, lets not go to the fact that it's overpriced but lets just say that there is not much of an attraction there....

After a while we decided to brave through shops that I never thought of setting foot in - Furla & Cole Haan. All this while I thought bags in these shops are only made for Mak Dat's - and the only person I know that carry their bags is my Aunt Aggie - damn she's nuts for Furla bags....

*Cole Haan's Village Crochet Bag*
As we step in Cole Haan, my eye instantly fell on the brochure and saw the Cole Haan Village Crochet Bag on its front page....damn, super nice ok!Even ika had to admit that the bag look gorgeous with the model (biting a bit of her creadit card to put her purse in the bag) with gorgeous hair....sigh....our sales assistant just smiled, I guessed she saw the look on our faces quite a number of times before. We queried on the bag....but she said its already out of stock. Apparently its one of its bestsellers and were all snatched up by the end of first week of its released...including the subsequent orders....

*Cole Haan's Village Triple Satchel Bag*

Then there it is, Cole Haan's Village Triple Satchel Bag, in white, at the second row corner at the left hand side of the shop...just beaming....both of us instantly fell in love....but ika is warned not to get anywhere near it....that bag is mine!!!! The leather felt perfect, everything seems just right.To illustrate the bag to everyone, I manage to get one of the net in black...hmm, not a personal choice but boleh la.... retail price is set at RM1750....no discount since Cole Haan is not on sale.

Takpe takpe.....mana tau kan...maybe one day it'll be on my shoulders...hehehe..
