Gender Bender #31





Louis Vuitton Porte Toile GM

After reading about this bag from Bagaholicboy, I remembered I saw pics of this bag a few weeks before as posted by Chuvaness. Somehow the bag left an impression on me and I was telling myself this bag could work for me, seeing it is grey with black leather trim and the printed words is kinda cute and as Chuvaness puts it, 'Margielic'. So it quirky fun with the bag.

I immediately went back online to search for more pictures. The bag made of canvas comes in 2 different sizes and also colours. Fuchsia and orange is out of the question for guys...so the black one looks sleek and neutral. The size seems giant against the model, so that is a good sign this bag could serve as a man tote.

One thing that bothers me...is the back of the bag...which has a ribbon like detailing. Arrrgggg...why do they put in this detail. If not, this bag is perfect for a guy! Okay, I will have to see the real bag in order to determine if this bag will pass the gender bender test.:-P

This bag is from the cruise 2009 season.

I feel that ribbon detail is going to make me not feel right buying it. Plus the very long handles...

But it's worth taking a look.

Kevin:-P

Bags Bags Bags....gosh we are such victims.

I did huge damage again on Old fateful Saturdayb y splurging on another Prada bag.

The ailing economy keeps screaming in my head, but the heart knows what it wants. And sometimes it is better to let your heart do the talking or in this case do the "logical" thing. Beat the economy woes and kick it in its butt by wielding out your Credit Card.

*Ka-Ching* credit crunch?? what crunch? I am officially a Prada whore.

Bought a nylon haversack. Been wanting to get one for the longest time.

It looks suitable for work (cos it's black) and can chuck my gym gear in it for that after-work workout session in the evenings. Convenient to lug and looks good haha..

By the way is "Bringin Home The Birkin" a good read? Feel like getting it on the ereader so i can read it on my iphone.

I don't like it... I LOVE IT & WANT IT!!! I agree with you Kevin, the ribbon at the back is somewhat distracting but I think it really depends on the person carrying it.

Urgh, I can imagine myself carrying this in the beach... I just hope it's not $$$ coz it's made from canvas right?!

I am bothered by the ribbon detail...so this may not cut it as a gender bender bag:-( at least for me. The straps are also very long. So the ebst way to determine is to see the real thing.:-) But I like the shape and design.
