A: Hi Ser, unless your school exists on the Moon where everything exists in zero-gravity and you can react fast enough to avoid any spills and stains, forget it. I can’t bear to see any Chanel bag being abused and ruined, especially if you are getting it in White. Try darker colours instead, Black, Brown or even Gray and I promise the bag will be with you until you graduate. One that I like is the Chanel Calfskin Weekender (shown above). Check it out.
Q: Dear Bagaholicboy, found your blog by accident and it is truly awesome. There’s a question I would like to ask you, what is the best way to find out about retail prices, since I feel so shy about entering any store in case the bag I want to buy is more expensive than what I can afford.
A: Hey Kinsey, thanks for the email. One of ways I do ‘research’ as well is to just ring the boutique and ask about that item’s particular price. For example, Louis Vuitton has a dedicated hotline in Singapore (6788-3888) for queries like these. I am not sure if Malaysia has one like this too, but I guess you could just ring ahead and find out. As for the other brands, just ring the boutiques directly and ask, their numbers are usually available on their respective corporate sites.
Q: Hi I can’t decide between the large Loewe Amazona or a YSL Muse Two. I like the Muse Two but I heard that the flap will sag after some time. I also like the size of Loewe Maxi Amazona but I was told by the SA that it only comes in Black. I am actually looking for something in Brown.
A: Dear Elaine, start over. Your current choices don’t even fit your requirements, so less fussing and more window-shopping is preferred. An important rule, never settle for anything less than what you truly covet. Devote a day for this and check out more brands, then email me again with your selections if you need further advice.
