A Super Late Christmas Gift for Myself

2:20:00 PM

Christmas is already over but I haven't bought anything for myself yet. Ever since I had kids, I tend to save my money to buy things they need instead of buying stuff for me. Not that I'm complaining or anything, I just realized that the last time I shopped for something a bit expensive was like 2-3 years ago. Actually, I've been using the same bags that I've bought last 2011. One is a huge turquoise shoulder bag and the other one is a Jansport backpack that are very much durable and old (5yrs). 

Recently, I've been thinking of purchasing a new bag that's not too expensive, but is durable and looks really nice. I do a lot of window shopping and I got my eye on bags from CLN, Guess and XOXO. I just love shoulder bags that are quite big so that I can put all my paraphernalia inside but wouldn't look bulky. Plus, bags that I've seen on those brands look really stylish. 



What's even better is that I can actually buy bags from my preferred brands at the comfort of my own home. My office mates have been loyal customers of Zalora since 2012 where in they've bought shoes, bags, clothes, etc. They all have positive feed backs so I decided to give it a try.

There are a lot of brands to choose from but what really got me excited were the bags from XOXO. I've been seeing this brand for so long but haven't tried buying from them once. Upon browsing the website, you will see that XOXO has a wide range of stylish bags that will surely make every outfit I own look fabulous.

Here are my choices:


Faded Leather Tote Bag - P 2,499.95
Jacquard Tote Bag - P 2,699.95
Jacquard Satchel Bag - P 2,699.95
But before buying one, can you please comment on what you guys think looks better among the three? It would be very helpful and fun to know your opinions. :) Can't wait to purchase my XOXO bag soon! You should check it out as well.

  10. Being a mom definitely makes you want to put all the things they need first before yourself. I tend to do the same. I think the last time I bought clothes was 2 years ago and the rest are just gifts. Zalora is a nice place to shop and it's safer than other online shops.

  13. I think the Satchel bag would be better as it looks good. It also looks more spacious and could double as a laptop bag.

  18. The Faded Leather Tote Bag is my choice, because it will also be my wife's choice. She does not like big brand names that call thieves attention to the bag. The color makes it more flexible for any outfit she has.

  19. Someone wanted to get me a bag. Then I realised that it wasn't easy finding that perfect bag that I want. Just like finding a perfect mate. :/

  20. The faded leather tote would be a choice. An easy style to dress up and down and a classic colour which will not go out of fashion. Enjoy your treat!

  23. I think you will end up buying two bags. The first one for a more formal setting, the other one, either the second or third, for a more casual setting.

  24. The faded leather tote is pretty much a good choice because it is suitable for all occasions. Whether you wear jeans or even culottes would suit well with the bag´s texture.

  27. Hmmh Is there any other brand you can get :) coz for that prizes there are more better (reliable) bags you can choose from. (this is my opinion though) But is you're really decided then go for the first one :)

  28. If you ask me, my choice would be the last bag for it's shape and also I prefer monogrammed bag. Although a self design, subtle design would be better!
