Meet Olly’s newest acquistion from Hong Kong, the Gucci Joy Large Top Handle Bag. We spotted this eons ago at Gucci DFS Scottswalk Galleria but it was retailing for a cool SGD1000. Perhaps the price was just too high or the feeling wasn’t right, so she passed. In Hong Kong it was a different story altogether. Boosted by her shopping high after securing her Longchamp Art Déco Le Pliage Handbag at a discount, we encountered this baby the very next day.
After conversion (and the usual discounts), it retailed for only SGD799, which in her books was too good a deal to pass up. And the rest is history, and she added yet another lovely to her growing collection. Larger than it actually looks, it is really rather roomy on the inside, with its styling suitable for both the conference room or a casual day out.
Another Gucci delight we saw in Hong Kong was the Gucci Medium Tote With Double Handles, a large manbag that I never did see before in Singapore. It was also cheaper than I expected, costing a mere SGD1350 or so after conversion, which ain’t a bad price for such a large tote bag. Tempted yes, but it was not meant to be.
