Trip to Italy-the retail therapy

oh God. the shopping was fantastic, what wasn’t was the limited time allocated for shopping >.< not too impressed by how our tour guide arranged the day to day itinerary as it didn’t allow us much time on our own. so recently in april me, mom, aunty flo and uncle sam went for a trip to italy. we covered a few cities.. hmm if laziness or procrastination wears off i might blog about the trip. but this post is about the stuff i bought!

i think I’m gonna be eating porridge for a few months. but maybe not because mr awesome is feeding me 😉

our haul from Venice, where we had 2 hours to shop so we only managed to pop by Chanel and MiuMiuImage

and this is from Rome, managed to purchase all the above items within 45 mins. I’m gonna do individual unboxing post for the MiuMiu, Chanel and LV..wait for it  ok?Image

found these beautiful snakeskin bangles in Pisa, since i missed the chance to look for them in Florence, where i remember i bought a few during my last trip years ago. snapped up a few in various colors, not all of them are mine..this stack here includes mom’s and aunty flo’sImage

wearing all mine together, love how it goes well with my Pandora bracelet ❤ ❤Image

Chanel petit cambon tote

before going on the trip to Spain, i was searching around online drooling looking at things i wanted to get. So i was eying the Wilshire MM , the one in Rouge Fauviste especially..the beautiful eye catching raspberry red color. Or the Alma BB. As expected the Alma BB is sold out at the Louis Vuitton store in Barcelona but sadly even the Wilshire was only available in Gris art deco, a silvery grey colour which i didn’t like, it was too dull for me. So they didn’t have everything on our list : the Eva, Wilshire MM, Alma BB.. and nothing else caught my eye. only managed to get the Neverfull pm in Damier for Anngie. So we walked down the street..and walked past Chanel.

It was a really small shop, very few ready to wear pieces on sale, a rack of sunglasses and some handbags. i asked the friendly sales associate (SA) for Petit shopping tote (PST) and it was out of stock. I asked to see the Grande shopping tote (GST) and my mom and aunt thought it looked too big and bulky on me. then the SA brought out a very cute little thing which i fell in love with instantly. It was the petit Cambon tote. Made of lambskin..with the patents CC sewn in front..it was the perfect size. so cute, and when i took a peek inside it was a really sweet surprise for me because it’s neon pink!! fell in love (again!) and decided to buy it. after waiting a while, she came out from the storeroom and handed me a black paperbag with ribbons at the handles and a white camelia flower on it. so pretty 🙂

gonna do a reveal, because im very excited and so happy!

forgot to take a pic before i untied the ribbons
