Black Bags

I have always loved black bags.
There's a place in Cagayan de Oro City where one can find nice, sturdy pre-loved bags and ukay-ukay ones and haggle the prices at an amount lower than they already are.
Three weeks ago I bought this little shoulder bag at the nightmarket. I have no idea what the logo stands for but the metal details, gold specifically, sealed the deal for me. When I got home I immediately polished the metal bits and rubbed leather solution on the bag's surface. Voila, instant vintage-y bag that looks like it came from mom's 80s era loot bin. The size is perfect for midday quick trips to the grocery.

Below, one can see clearly the letter "M" quilted into the pattern. How clever. As Oprah said, love is in the details. A steal at P150.oo! Plus, how cute is it that the bag has feet?

Another acquisition of mine is this duchess shopper bag from the Puma shop.

Once again, it's in black. And, whoopidoo, do you see the silver chain and trinkets dangling at its lovely exterior pocket? Very Bill Kaulitz, baby. Enough said.
