So anyway, a bunch of them are on this Japan trip now!!! I'm so jealous!!!
Before they left, they were busy packing and on our group chat, they were discussing what to bring, which shoes to wear, what handbag to carry and it got me thinking about handbags. Holiday handbags.
What's your favourite holiday handbag?
For me, my LV is my favourite holiday bag. This is why….
1. It is big
2. It is light
3. I can dump everything I want in there
It is just the best holiday bag EVER!!!! I can put ALL our passports in there. I usually carry everyone's passport with me. That's at least 5 passports including my maid's. If my mil comes along, that's 6 passports to carry. I usually also put a small folder in this bag with all our travel itinerary (like hotel bookings and driver's confirmation letter etc). I put my small makeup bag for me to freshen up on the plane. I have my cardigan in this bag when I get cold. My phone, pen, sometimes my kid's iPads.
Basically, A LOT OF JUNK can fit in this bag.
I love it!!!!
This is without a doubt my favourite bag when I'm traveling by plane, for sure!!!
But when I'm out and about on holiday…. I prefer taking my Prada gaufre bag. I can't put that much stuff in there but its a sling bag and its just easy for me to carry and I just love it.
See? So cool right? So practical especially when I'm on holiday. I bought this 5 years ago and it is one of my favourite bags ever because I use it so much and such a good purchase! I would so buy this again (in a different colour). Mine is dark blue and matches all my outfits perfectly too :)
Anyway, the girls was talking about bags and I thought about my 2 favourite holiday bags. I would bring this 2 bags on every trip. But when I was in London and Paris last year, I didn't bring the LV and brought my Chanel GST instead. (what was I thinking?)
While the girls and I were talking about holiday bags, they told me that next time, when I'm on holiday, I should carry 2 bags. 1 small sling bag (small as in, really small…can fit 1 passport + 1 wallet kind of small) and 1 trash bag.
The logic is, you just carry what you need with you, which is your money, phone and passport. And every other junk (like your makeup bag, your sweater, etc in the "trash" bag). Once you get to your destination, just carry the sling bag and leave the other bag in the car or something.
OK…. that's interesting. Now I HAVE to get a Wallet on Chain (WOC)? Sigh. I've been wanting one but to pay RM6000 for this is making me think twice! It is really cute and nice. OK fine. I want one! Why not?!
But also, since we are talking about sling bags, I also found these……. Quite nice right?
What about the "trash" bag? Well, it can be any bag because people won't see you carrying it. Umm……. But still!!!! Gotta match my outfit!
OK enough bag talk! I'm gonna save money to buy my WOC!!!
