tokidoki Eco Mondo + L'amore

Well, things started off so-so in the morning, with two consecutive lectures by an someone from the national pharmacy board (I think). The lectures were about some judicial law and poison act or something. I was ready to fall asleep in 5 minutes. So much for 'full attention during lectures'.... T-T

This afternoon, my mood turned ecstatic. I got a call from campus about a parcel. Woohoo! I'd been expecting it since the start of sem. :D

{ If you've been following my blog, you should be able to guess what these bags contained }


You're right!

I bought 2 toki's from 73papasmurf's on eBay. There was a storewide sale last December. Some of the items are still on sale. I'd actually been eyeing the Eco Mondo Sorriso since it's been listed at $169.90, because of it's perfect print placement. I wanted every bit of the Eco Mondo print included on the bag. While on a routine eBay-search one day, I saw the price dropped by more than 10%. I couldn't resist any longer, so I snatched it up then and there.

The other bag is an old design that was marketed in 2007 - L'amore Ciao. The seller offers 70% off shipping on each additional item and I'd been saving up to buy from her. A pleasant surprise presented itself when I purchased the 2 bags. Milly, the lady managing the store offered to have both bags shipped at the cost of one! That meant no extra shipping charges! Woot!

I thought I'd regret getting the L'amore bag. But it turned out to look so chic and fabulous that I find not the slightest fault with it. Absolutely LOVE it's gold-toned hardware!

I don't mean to scare you with my tokidoki obsession. It's just that the first taste made me want more. More. AND MORE. T-T Current tokidoki bag count = 5. You must be wondering how in hell I'm going to put these bags to good use. I love them all, no question about that, so I'm going to use them whenever I can. :)

I love tokidoki bags. I sadly realised the bag I brought (from a store too) was a fake. I was gutted.

Even though I very much prefer originals due to quality and admiration for Simone's designs, I think knock-offs can look very like the real thing. :P
