This bag is gorgeous! The pictures on the website make it look far brighter and rainbow-y. While my pictures don’t do it justice, I’m glad it’s more subtle.
I love how this bag moves and feels. It’s so sleek. It might not be an everyday bag for a soccer mom, but it’s not a delicate flower that’s going to stain and fall apart quickly either.
I’ve never ordered from a store overseas before, and was admittedly nervous. But there was no need to worry, everything went smoothly and my purse came much quicker than I thought! It was just around 3 weeks, instead of the 45 I was dreading.
It came in perfect condition and Bao Bao even includes a white bag to store your purse in when not in use. That tickled me as an added bonus 😀
Story Time! ~
I’m not amany pursed gal. I have my big AF shoulder bag purse and that’s it. It carries everything I could ever possibly need so I’m always prepared and don’t have to worry about switching stuff out.
That’s an old habit from when my daughter was still in diapers, I was working and going to school while using the local shitastic bus system.
Now that we’ve grown up a bit and got lucky and stabilized, there are problems with this routine.
Do I really need my Kindle, my paper books, my daily notebook, medicine, nail bag, eye glass bag, back-up headphones and charger, and all this other shit I can’t even begin to remember off the top of my head just to go grocery shopping? Trips to the dollar store? Doctor appointments?
Was I going to change at all?
Until I bought the medium size instead of the large.
I was so mad at myself for selecting the wrong size! I went back to triple-check my order and found the problem. The size selections have pictures of the purse and I selected the largest looking one. I should’ve wait for that alt-text to pop up because the pic I clicked is for the Medium. FUCK.
Then one day I was draggin’ ass to go get groceries. I didn’t wanna and I was SO tired of dealing with it and being the only one dealing with it. Being an adult, being a head of a household, being responsible, just plain sucks.
I did not want to pick up my gigantic heavy purse. What was so normal and mundane, suddenly being a trial. I’m no hero. I said fuck it, threw my wallet, my phone, and my list in my new pretty Luminous Bao Bao and went off.
I’ve continued the trend with other errands I’ve run on my days off and couldn’t be happier. I have to admit there’s a large part of me that just feels great using this purse because it’s so pretty and clearly fashionable.
I wish my lazy, exhausted, cheap ass listened to other women before and did this more-than-one-purse thing sooner.
I won’t lie, this is more expensive than my usual fare. My usual being 20-30 bucks at Walmart. In fact, I’ve told no one how much it actually costs. It’s so embarrassing 😳
Thankfully, I’ve kept this blog and my reviews secret from my everyday peeps so I didn’t just screw myself with this post, lol!
Do I regret paying so much for a purse? No.
Do I regret paying so much for THIS purse? No
Do I still want the larger size to use everyday?…Yes, yes I do. But it’s so expensive I’ll have to wait and save and wish away 😔
