As my mother is advising me to invest in a hefty designer bag that is more apt for my *ahem* professional lifestyle (I highly disagree!) and whilst I have an appreciation for a classic Chanel and I see the merits in a good quality leather bag, I’m also busy browsing FredFlare.com at the cute kitschy bags that I guiltily love. I have been through so many cutesy canvas totes from the age of 12 to the present, buying about 5 or 6 everytime I go to Hong Kong or Japan (masters of the cute/kitsch tote!) and yet even though they don’t last me, I still love them. Perhaps my bag-mentality has not yet caught up with my real age. In the meantime, I’m content with scruffy canvas totes with biro marks and fraying edges.
