My New Lacoste Bag

For my upcoming birthday next month, I got a new Lacoste bag from the hubby last night. If in the past I’d receive my birthday present as a surprise, this year it came in advance! Well, it’s primarily because it was a “requested” birthday present. I requested, he bought. Haha. It’s an L.12.12 concept large shopping bag (horizontal) with short handles. It’s in red clay. There were paprika red and the popular rouge red but the red clay appealed to me the most. When I tried carrying it in my right shoulder, I felt an instant connection with it. Okay, I’m just exaggerating, but you get the point.

To save myself from worries on the authenticity of the bag, I suggested to the hubby that we buy straight from the Lacoste store at Robinsons Place Manila. I did my research beforehand through my friend Google and read countless sad stories of hapless women who have bought fake Lacoste bags sold on Instagram, Facebook and groupon sites. Hindi ko naman nilalahat, pero karamihan talaga fake ang binebenta, alam man nila yon o hinde. In times like this, it’s better to be safe than sorry even if it means shelling out more money than you intended to.

Do you wanna know what my ultimate dream bag is? It’s Louis Vuitton’s MM Neverfull in Damier Ebene Canvas. The last time I checked (sometime in 2012), the price is P43,200 at the LV store in Greenbelt, Makati. While I can afford to buy it at this point in my life, I don’t have the heart to touch our emergency fund just for a bag. It will have to wait, for now. Plus, my new Lacoste bag deserves some lovin’ and I’m definitely giving it to her.

in full glory

Just like with my Longchamp bag, I promise to take care of this baby for as long as I can. So far, I have yet to see a girl carrying a Lacoste bag in the same color as mine. I’m glad because it makes my bag unique, if you know what I mean. 🙂

P.S. For the hubby’s upcoming birthday next month (our birthdays are just one week apart!), he got his “requested” birthday present last night, too. We’re both ecstatic! 🙂

May you choose happiness always,

  1. Advanced happy birthday!!!

    The color is so pretty! It’s so perfect on an all-white outfit.

    Correct ka dyan sa mga online sellers ng fake merch. Sakit sa ulo. Maski yung mga coupon sites, nagbebenta ng fake. In the end, hindi ka naman talaga nakakatipid.

    1. Yes, an all-white outfit! Kaso naalala ko, dugyot pala ako. Hahahaha. Korek, lugi pa kamo kasi sayang ang perang binayad.

      Thank you for the greeting, TPS! Or should I start calling you Ms. Ellen to show my respect? 🙂

      1. Welcome. Teka, bakit nyo (Diane, Leah, etc.) ba ako tinatawag ng Ms Ellen? Hahahaha! Saka ano ba ang ka-respe-respeto sa akin na wala sa iba na hindi nilalagyan ng “Ms.” before the name? LOL! “TPS” na lang. Secret na lang natin ang name ko. Mahiyain ako.

          1. Maalala ko, anong “dugyot”? Ang ganda kaya ng skin mo. Gow na, wear the red bag with the white outfit. #Switzerland Hehehe

  2. Advance Happy Birthday ma’am edel!!!!

    Wow, ganda!!!! Grabe nakakalagnat naman ang presyo nyan ma’am, pero oks lang weakness talaga ng babae ang bag e :))…….

    1. Hi Madam Grace! Wag mo nga ako i-Mam dyan. Edel na lang! 🙂

      Thank you for your greeting. Malakas ang loob ko kasi hindi ako ang nagbayad, si mister. At pag may okasyon lang naman, kasi alam mo naka shopping fast (no shopping!) ako until November 30. Haha. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Joy! Salamat din daw sabi ni hubby. Hehe. Tama dapat nga lagyan ng palaman ang bag para di madeform or tiklupin ng maayos, in the case of this bag. 🙂

  3. @TPS: Sa haba ng comment exchange natin, ayaw na magpareply ng thread kaya dito na lang. Hahaha, promise my skin isn’t nice, at dugyot talaga ako tingnan pag puti ang suot. Minsan tsumatsamba lang! 🙂

  4. Natutuwa ako kapag nakakita ako ng bloggers who opt to buy from the official Lacoste stores. I had my own share of bad experience. Sayang pera! Enjoy the bag:)

    PS Pippo may not be with you but he will always be your first born. He’s smiling up above because alam niya, masaya ang parents nya. 🙂

  5. Ah talaga, korek sayang pera. Kaya dun na sa sigurado. 🙂

    Thank you very much, Diane! Yes, we’re trying to be strong in our faith and happy in our life because we know he’s in a better place already and that we’ll see each other again in due time, just like how it’s going to be with our other departed loved ones. 🙂
