I was just browsing sa LV site at meron namang medyo afford ko. You can order online and pick it up in their store here in Edmonton. Ang higpit naman ng redemption process...lol! Kelangan pa talaga merong government issued ID.

:'(I used to but longchamp bags but lately hindi na. Nagkalat online with paper bag, complete din pag tinignan mo siya parang hindi na nalalayo sa original. And for some people na wala naman idea re original and replica LC bags, pareho na lang siya.  :'(

Pliage line siguro eto kasi yun sikat sa kanila? Ayaw mo sis yung ibang styles may mga magaganda naman na hindi nagkalat.

^^haha! aray sa naka-designer bags pero nagji-jeep/tricycle lang..nagta-tricycle/jeep lang ako lagi though may car naman kami. Ang paborito kong gamitin, authentic LC, coach at cath kidston lang kung magmo-mall o mag-gogrocery lang kami. other brands pag may events sa school.. :)

Kaya mo nga binili dahil sa function nung bag eh. Dahil matibay, trendy, spacious at pang-harabas, indi para pangporma or para magmukha kang mayaman, kung ganun ang purpose mo kaya ka bibili/bumili ng designer bag e di mas unahin mo na lang munang bumili ng car para sa tingin mo magmumukha ka ngang mayaman..

May kapitbahay nga kami na milyonarya, nakaLV sya lagi pero madalas ko sya nakikitang naglalakad lang papunta sa mga tindahan nya ng gulay at eggs.. Hindi din sya marunong magdrive pero may driver sya, asawa nya hehe. Kinakantyawan ko sya lage, "oy mare, baka maholdap ka, yang LV mo puno pa naman ng pera"! :D

Sa ibang bansa, ok lang naman sumakay ng train or magbus wearing LV or prada, kasi maganda ang transpo system nila.. Makakakita ka pa nga sa bus/train na naka-mink coat and nice boots pag winter na parang aattend ng red carpet event e hehe. Pero mukhang papasok lang pala office hehe..Dito sa pinas, ok lang din naman na gumamit ng designer bags que naka-kotse o jeep/tricycle ka.. Que authentic pa yan or replica. Wala na tayo kiber dun.. Ang dapat nating intindihin e yung mga snatcher, salisi gang, mandurukot, bukas-kotse, etc.. Kasi yang mga yan, que nakakotse ka or commute or nasa loob ng mall, e nakakalat ang mga yan at mabibiiktima ka talaga kung aanga-anga ka.. :)

Natamaan din ako dun sa LV pero naka-taxi lang, haha. Para sa akin kasi, wala lang naman yun. Hindi rin naman ako ganun kaconscious sa image ko, LOL. We have a car, pero ang lapit lang kasi ng office at mga malls, so I walk or take a cab kapag maraming dala lang pauwi. Basta whatever is most convenient for me at the time. Hirap kasi na laging iintindihin ko pa yung iisipin ng iba. Just my thoughts.

^^^ So what kung naka-LV or Hermes pag namamalengke or naka-tricycle or walang kotse or naka-taxi? Malay mo ba kung mahilig talaga sa designer  bags kasi matibay at maganda.

Pag nagbakasyon pala ako sa Manila next year, pagsasakay ako taxi or Grabcar para pumunta sa Jolibee and grocery sa Robinsons, I?m just going to use my Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Rebecca Minkoff and Longchamp leather bags instead of my Gucci, Saint Laurent, LV and Givenchy bags. 

^ Okay naman what you said, kung bibili rin lang ng mahal, talagang authentic na, and tama sa lifestyle.

Kami nagtritrike at jeep.. hehe eh kasi wala naman kaming car tsaka mas prefer kong iinvest nalang kesa bumili ng kotse since useless naman, hindi naman kami lumalabas lagi.


Agree iba rin agn quality ng mga branded at saka long lasting. Kaysa bumili ako ng tig-200 pesos tapos ilang gamitan lang sira na rin.

^I am a good candidate for expensive but great quality bag. Kasi pag bumili ako isa lang kasi ayoko ng papalit palit. I will use that one bag until it falls apart...lol!

Anyway, I went shopping for bags as Christmas gift for myself. I had a budget of up to $300 lang. But when I went to the stores of branded products, I didn't find what I really want. I can buy it online but I want to see it first before buying. I ended up getting one from Aldo...lol! I am happy with the purchase and saves me money. It's not high end but I am happy.

my husband is the one who doesn't like replica bags, esp the ones sold in Pinas (hello Greenhills, lol),  he says it's a big waste of money.  he said to me one time that i myself would know that it's fake, that it's not going to give me the same satisfaction as owning authentic high-end brands.  and he also thinks that buying several pieces of high street brands like TB, [textspeak!], MK is not the same as  owning a couple of true luxury designer brands,  i guess he's a certified bag snob, worse than me.  ;D

^I agree with your husband. Brands from the High street and contemporary designers I own maski leather the colour faded and I rotated those bags every month. Bibili na dapat ako ng Alex Wang Rocky sa isang shop then I noticed the other bags from premium designers so naisip ko na huwag na. Di na ako maghihintay ng 10 years just to get one baka bukas patay na ako di ko pa nabibili gusto ko when I have the means to do it. Madami na rin naman na lines ng premium designer brands only a few hundred dollars more expensive than the most expensive line ng high street and contemporary brands.

Nabasa ko sinulat ko dati nagulat ako. lol.

Ako wala akong replica, di din mamahalin mga bags ko pero kung yung ibang tao me replica, wala ako pakelam. Walang basagan ng trip.

I live abroad now. Feeling ko nga dito wala naman pakelamanan kahit replica man o genuine ang bags na dala. Saka parang mahirap naman din malaman unless designer bag enthusiast ka talaga and may time ka magscrutinize ng makakasalubong mo. Chaka di mashado ma logo mga tao dito.

^^Eh mas okay na ang Wal-mart bag kesa fake for me. Personal na opinion lang, I feel guilty pag fake. I feel like I am trying to rob the real owners of what's suppose to be theirs.

Ako personally, I believe na better to own one quality product than have multiple products na cheap naman and madali ring masira. I read some of your experiences na even legit ones eh nasisira nga but i guess it's more on pag-aaalaga. I tried buying online kasi (despite sa maraming red flags pag online orders since di mo nacheck yung product personally) and I was satisfied naman kahit inabot ako ng libo kasi authentic korean bag nakuha ko (yung brand is Heraposh, idk if familiar na kayo)  I was really happy with what I bought kasi pangmatagalan siya kahit madalas mong ginagamit. At least alam kong sulit yung binayad ko kahit di masyadong pang-masa yung price. It's not about social image lang naman, more on quality pa rin siya for me, i think.

I'm writing here now since, yesterday, somebody I know offered to sell me replica handbags from well known brands. may binigay pa siyang printout pictures of some of the bags and saw some personally and maganda ang pagakakawa.

I own a few luxury hand bags, and also some from contemporary brands, and when I saw the replicas, medyo gusto kong bumili, but my husband just laughed at me when I told him. Husband told me that it might be a waste of money to buy replicas and just buy authentic ones. kung wala ka pang pera ngayon, eh di pag ipunan mo na lang so you have the pride in wearing something authentic which will be more value for money - yan ang payo nya sa akin which kung tutuusin is actually true.

I considered myself not addicted sa mga branded bag, though meron ako iilan lang na hindi ko masyado ginagamit kasi nakakapanghinayang. Hindi ko bet gumamit ng mga class A / replica bag mas gusto ko yun ordinary bag or local brand na mabibili sa mga malls na hindi ganun kamahalan pero ok yung quality sa pangaraw araw na gamit.

I am a lover of quality and substance, i won't be caught wearing replica just because i know masisira lang sooner than later.  Though i know a bunch of people who do use replica na good quality and very happy with it.  Like the long champ, looks authentic.

^kahit nga authentic basta local brand madali talaga masira. I have tried them all. Yung mga nasa SM store haha! Lahat yun meron ako. Cose, heartstring, secosana, kimbel, jovanni, michaela, parisian. Lahat hindi talaga nagtatagal sakin! hays. Nagtry ako ng iba like girbaud. Mukhang matibay naman. Til now ok pa rin. Buy one get one ko nabili. Then yun isang satchel bag binigay ko sa pamangkin ko na student then daily nya ginagamit at mukhang maayos pa rin yun bag..

May isang instance pa na nasa airport kami nuon at yun bagong bili ko na cose red crossbody bag. Kabibili ko lang eh biglang napigtas yung strap! Ano ba yan! Anglaking hassle talaga eh. Kung susumahin ko yun mga nagastos ko sa pagpalit palit ng local bags, makakabili na ako ng good designer bag nun! Kaya kahit maganda ang design nila, let say yun jovanni na nakikita ko, nagagandahan ako sa isang crossbody bag, hindi ko na bibilhin yun kasi duda na ako baka mamaya 1month lang sira na ulit sakin hehe.. Kaya last year talaga i asked my husband na ayoko na ng low-quality bags. Nakakafrustrate! Kaya please naman pagbigyan na nya ako magtry ng branded bags para mafeel ko amg difference. Ayun pinagbigyan naman ako ng dear husband ko hehe.. Bait talaga! :D

Ngayon marami na ako bag, iba-ibang brand, kahit araw-araw pede akong magpalit-palit ng bag para hindi malaspag..alaga lahat with dessicant at dustbag and twillies. Arte e no.longchamp neo lang may twillies pa.. E masakit sa braso pag sobrang daming laman eh. Ngbabakat haha! :D

Atsaka nakakasawa din nman yung araw -araw nagsusundo ako ng mga bata, same lagi yun suot ko bag. Nakakaumay din. Kaya after 1week, ibang bag naman ang dinadala ko hehe. Kaya lang pag LV dala ko like coin purse lang eh tinetest ako ng ibang mom sa school kung marami akong pera. May nagpapapalit ng 1k. Hello, coin purse po yun dala ko. Thermometer ang laman to check my daughter's temp at susi ng bahay. At coins pambili ng pizza ng anak ko sa canteen na lagi nya pinapabili sakin.. Asa bahay po ang paper bills ko. :D :D

Yun lang, pag may bitbit kang designer bag or pouch/wallet, parang mataas ang expectation or pressure sa iba.like sa isa kong friend...Naka-gucci ka daw tapos sa macdo ka lang daw kakain. Hehe. Grabehan.. Anong klaseng pag-iisip ba meron yun mga ganun mag-isip.. Lahat na lang pinapakialaman. Kaya hindi nila maenjoy yun luxury bags nila because of that kind of thought. Masyado affected sa iniisip ng ibang tao. :)
importante di mo ninakaw yun bag o pinambili mo ng bag. :)
