nothing beats the excitement of transferring your stuff over to your new bag…=). i got this large botkier bianca bag recently, haven’t had a chance to use it until my trip last weekend. this bag has everything i’m looking for in a bag, it’s big so of course it’s roomy…but it’s so lightweight (even though it’s lined in suede) that you can put a ton into it and still won’t do a lot of damage to your shoulder in a few years. the leather is very supple, it’s actually lambskin but it looks tough and durable and it smells oh so goood..=). the two front pockets are very practical and it has lots of pockets inside, the handle is long enough to hang it over the shoulder.
btw, the designer of this bag used to be a new york based fashion photographer, monica botkier. and the bag is actually made in indonesia!!. tadi nya tas tas botkier itu made in nyc tapi yang sekarang made in indonesia. tapi nggak pa pa sih, i’d rather buy this than a made in china coach bag.
i’m liking the bags from these premium designers (kooba, bulga, gusto, etc). the quality is good and they are understated, they are not everywhere. the price is not as affordable as i would like though..but i got this one at more than 50% off…so i’m happy!!..=)
