My 2010 Birthday Treat No.2:
Fendi Goldmine And Calfskin Bracelet
Ever since I tried on this bracelet at the Fendi Marina Sands boutique, I cannot get it off my mind. This Fendi Goldmine and Calfskin Bracelet is simply gorgeous and a great alternative to Hermès CDC bracelets if you tire from orange overdose once in a while:-P The gold stud and shiny plate buckle makes for a tough luxe appeal, while the different colour options of the double wrap leather strap allows you to mix and match as per your preference.
Best part of all, these bracelets are really affordable (although they look more expensive than they seem). At SGD$340, you cannot fault the pricing. That could explain the reason why these bracelets sell fast in Fendi stores all over Singapore, leaving only medium size and the taupe and pink colour left (at the time I first tried them on).
However, medium size was too loose for my slim wrist (even though there were 2 fastening length, the last hole was odd to use) and the colours left not to my liking. I wanted black and gold combination which will be the most versatile and appealing of options. Hence, I had to turn my hunt for the bracelet online...
Thanks to www.luisaviaroma.com, I tracked down the black/gold version in S size, and way much less than what the local boutiques are charging (at € 138.95 or approx. SGD$250). I knew I had to get it as a birthday present!(I first bought the single wrap, broader version, but thought it was too narrow in width for guys. Hence I exchanged it for the double wrap version which is perfect!)
Another birthday treat for another new year ahead. Hope this bracelet brings me luck! Just debut it yesterday at the Gucci Marina Bay Sands store opening... loving every minute of wearing it:-)
Retail price: € 138.95 (or SGD$340 at Singapore Fendi Boutiques). Where to buy: Luisaviaroma or Fendi Boutiques
