Now, don't expect for any LV, Fendi, Prada, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Christian Dior or any designer label. Whilst I know I've just told you the designer labels I like, the truth is mine are just from the high street. But then what's wrong with bags from the high street? They provide me of what I need. But what is it really that you want from a bag? I know we use different bags for different occassions but on an ordinary day-out or when you go to work, what bag do you usually use? Or when you go in a shop and see a display of beautiful, yummy bags...what's your impulse? If your impulse is to look around and end up buying one, what is it that make you buy it?
Me? I usually look for a bag with the right size, the right colour, durability and it must always be a 'shoulder bag.' I like handbags as well but it is not very convenient for me, especially if I'm travelling with my boy and I have to carry a lot of things with me and also attend to him at the same time. I need my both hands to be free. This is why I admire Victoria Beckham for being able to carry a designer bag on her arm with her 3 kids in tow. Oh wait, she's got assistants and I don't. Yes, that's the difference.

Now wait! Yes, I've got a handbag. This one is about 6 years old. It is a handbag but I can use the rings to attach a longer sling.
Marks and Spencers, bought in 2008
Now this is my favourite! This is a square bag that is big enough for documents if I need to carry any with me, together with my other paraphernalias. The only thing that I find not-so-convenient is that instead of a zipper, it's got a flap. I find it so much of a hassle to open the flap when I'm in a shop and in a hurry.
Clarks, bought in 2007
This brown bag is very efficient! It's got 3 compartments inside. My only problem with this one is the lining. I keep mending it, it's just not durable enough.

This is the most efficient of all. The shape is like that of a doctor's bag and it is big inside. It's amazing sometimes when I put too much in it and it gets too heavy and yet it still has more room for more things! It is also mistaken to be a designer bag but it's not. I wonder if the pattern is a copy of any designer label? It's beginning to look worn out now but I still love it!
Don't you love bags? I'm sure you do! What is it that you look for when buying a bag? Share with me your thoughts and let me know what you've got in your collection!
