So, I got a new bag thanks to the husband. He had his bonus recently and wanted to treat his good wife to something nice :D I have after all put up with a lot of crap for the past years so naturally I accepted his good gesture :) Of course I’m not ashamed with the fact how I told him to transfer a certain amount of $ to my account so I could buy the bag myself!!
I first thought of this Prada bag.
But I did a double flip when I found out it cost more than RM4k, which was double the budget given! I’ve seen this bag on a few women at work and man, this is one classy baby! Of course I wont lie and say that somewhere along the lines of agreeing to how much he should give me I did push very hard for a Chanel bag :D But to no avail
Anyhos, it was then that I decided to pick out another bag, something more affordable *looks at measly budget* Ok kidding, I am grateful.
Since I’m subscribed to the Coach newsletter , I knew instantly which bag I wanted!
We walked into Coach in Gardens and I fell in love with the Coach Madison Gathered Leather Lindsey bag in Bordeaux! Everything about it was perfect….leather bag, pleat like exterior (hey almosttt looks like the prada except this one’s leather!!) BIG and the color was a rich deep red that made it look very prestige. Did a mental check for existing red bags and nope, got none so a new red bag for me it is!
So next question, how much I asked? RM3.5k she quipped.
You are fucking kidding me I said and walked out after telling her I’ll ‘try’ to convince my husband to buy it for me coz I didn’t want her to fell like she wasted her time and energy on me.
I’m that much of a considerate shopper.
So I challenged myself to see how cheap I could source for this else where.
And guess what? Challenge accepted and completed!!
The queen of never pay retail strikes again! For she got it for 1/3 of the local selling price *does the jiggle dance*
It was a close call coz the seller initially didn’t want to ship it to my husband’s uncle’s house in the US due to the address being ‘different’ from pay pal. Had to literally beg and tell him I’ve done transactions like this before. Though I wasn’t so convinced of winning the bid but I did!!
Got it for……….wait for it………….USD440!!
This baby retails for USD598 in the US. And Rm3.5k in stores in Malaysia.
*jiggle jiggle jiggle*
Say hello to my new baby girl, Madison Lindsey!
These photos from the seller will have to suffice for now coz she’s still in the US. My uncle is only going there in May so I’ll need to wait for another month before I can embrace her in my arms!!! Just thought I’d blog about it first coz I”m so excited about adding Lindsey to my collection of bag
But I just can’t believe my luck I got her at such a steal!! Isn’t she such a beauty? Definitely need to thank my hubby big time for this.
Now I”m eyeing the Coach Kristin Woven Leather Round Satchel…..and secretly thinking of the Madison Quilted Chevron Nylon Sophia Satchel in Navy Blue….fingers crossed! Geez, I wish Coach wouldnt give their bags such lenghty names in the future.
P.s: I”m selling off my Coach Periwinkle since I hardly use it (less than 3 times only!), anyone keen, just email me as I’m letting it go for a steal! And yes, this is part of a fund raising effort to get another Coach so help – BAG SOLD!
