It’s dangerous to window-shop, and as much as I believe that one can always exercise self-control, sometimes it just does not work, especially not for someone like me who tends to obsess too much. It all started last Sunday after I did a round in town to do a post on some of the latest bag offerings available in Orchard Road which subsequently did me in.
So what was I obsessing over? Well, as all of you may know by now, most of my bags are pretty ‘loud’, and of late I wanted something simpler and low-key. It would have to be in some dark colour, made of something in nylon or fabric and not too expensive, so I won’t feel the need to ‘baby’ it too much. Which brings us to the Burberry Buckleigh Nylon Tote. It fit all my criteria perfectly, but I did not want to do anything impulsive on Sunday and left empty-handed.
Till today that is. I could not stop thinking about it so I went down just before they closed to check it out one more time. Yes, I still wanted it. On the outside, very clean and simple, which was what I was looking for. On the inside, a wonderfully lined interior with an additional zip pocket. And because it costs only SGD475, I won’t feel the need to be overly paranoid about dirtying or damaging it, which can be stressful at times. And I look forward to using it as much as possible, including (and especially) on ‘rainy days and Mondays’.
Besides Black, it also comes in Khaki and Blue. There is also a smaller version for the ladies (SGD350), and it comes in more feminine colours including Light Purple and Red.
