I have just returned from an amazing journey to South East Asia. I spent 3 weeks in Singapore and Malaysia. I ate 5 meals a day, visited countless friends and relatives and missed Theodore too much. I also managed to squeeze some credit crunch during the trip. I will be sharing with you my favourite purchases from the holidays in the next few posts.
Two of my favourite souvenirs from Malaysia come from Marc Jacobs, in Kuala Lumpur’s KLCC. There were dozens of gorgeous leather totes on display, all on sale. I spent a few hours being indecisive. The shop assistant ‘Dax’ was so sweet. He was patient and lent me his calculator so I could try to convert Malaysian ringgit into Aussie Dollars. I practically tried every pair of shoes on display and held or touched every Marc Jacobs bag.
After much (and I mean a LONG time) consideration and contemplation…I finally decided on 2 items: a pair of purple suede Runway booties and the limited edition gold-bow-detail wrist tote.
Here I am wearing my new purchases with a gold Toshop watch necklace and a lavender Massimo Dutti (a Spanish label I fell in love at first sight) frilly dress.
The booties are very sweet. I especially love how the cut-out tear drop shaped details are lined with mesh. And I cannot begin to describe how much I love this bag. It was a difficult decision but I know I made the right choice. I love everything about it- the size, the shape, the texture of the butter soft lamb leather, the wrist-bucklet and the big gold zip.
Here is Dax, the lovely young man who helped alleviate my indecisiveness.
Now I just need to wear the shoes and use the bag and not let them just hibernate in their Marc Jacobs boxes.
