i really like the Fendi spring 09 totes i featured on my blog some times ago here.
i love that this tote that somehow reminded me of something from Hermès
and i just find out that the official name of this bag is "peek a boo"
i have a feeling i'm going to post a lot of this bag in the future.



but what i'm waiting the most is this

Marni "Bag with circle handles"

Marni always have the yummiest pebbled leather. this bag would be perfect for me if the handles is wearable on the shoulder

Marni "Double Balloon Bag"

Is Marni trying to make an LV version of Saumur bag?
well, although i think the colour is absolute stunner, but i have mixed feeling about this bag.
i can imagine this bag going really fat when you fill both sides with stuffs

Zagliani "Lizard skin envelope bag"

My second favourite exotic skin after crocodile is lizard and this bag is so pretty!
what i love about lizard is that it has the same characteristic with crocodile but of course with smaller scales and therefore make a bag looks less fierce :p

Balenciaga "Two-tone crocodile bag"

This bag drives me crazy! the croc leather looks so soft and strong yet elegant.
the mark down sale is not helping though, although it's like 50%, but still the number is way beyond my willingness to splurge for a bag

Letter from Reader #2

Subject : Lanvin Happy Sac - Stamped

Hi,

I have been browsing at this bag for a couple of months and is now thinking of buying it.
To my sadness I can't find it neither on mytheresa or brownsfashion.
I live in Sweden (Europe), so I guess that the closest place would be London or Paris.
Do you know any boutique that you can recommend in London or Paris?
I would never forgave myself if this bag turns out to be sold out every where :-(

Thanks in advanced!

Best Regards
Lan
