My New Longchamp Bag

I finally claimed my Longchamp Le Pliage bag, which I ordered from thru their semi-annual Longchamp sale (I got a 20% discount!), from Johnny Air-Makati yesterday. The price of the bag was $118 (approx. P5,000) and I paid P842 for shipping. The shipping fee from to Johnny Air’s New York office was free, thanks to the shopping site’s ongoing promo. I think I got a good deal since if I’d buy here in Manila, the price could go as high as P8,000.


This navy blue, Longchamp bag has been my dream bag for years now. I saved up for it and now I have it in possession. The limited edition Longchamp Arbre de Vie, which was my first choice at, turned out to be out of stock and so I settled back to my original choice. Still, I’m so happy! It was a dream come true, after all.

What made me happier is the fact that my Longchamp bag was shipped directly from Paris, the home of the Longchamp brand. I read in some forums that some online shopping sites sell Longchamps that are made in China. I have nothing against it as I know the same quality standards are followed in that setup. But as a customer, I’d always prefer to get my merchandise straight from their home base.


My new medium-sized Longchamp bag (in navy blue, with short handles) made its first public appearance yesterday when we visited Greenbelt 3 to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 in 3D. (It was an awesome movie, definitely the perfect finale to the 7-part saga of the legendary boy who lived.) I love how my bag looks classic and elegant at the same time. It’s very spacious inside, too, perfect for travel. I think it’s a good investment!
