A special edition of Monday Want Day appearing before you on a Wednesday because what better way to cheer up this mid-week slump than to go shopping! Especially when it’s online as you don’t even need to get up and go outside in the summer heat! I always say you can elevate any boring or simple outfit with the addition of a nice handbag, shoes and accessories. This is precisely why I honestly rather not spend money on clothes and instead invest in statement accessories like luxury handbags and shoes. Yes it is such a huge privilege to be able to afford luxury items but also it takes a lot of hard work and saving to do so! It’s about determination and trying not to spend money on cheap throw-away items, as I call them. Don’t get me wrong, I do plenty of affordable shopping (hellooooo Zara my love) but especially since moving to Shanghai, my shopping habits have definitely decreased significantly.
Every year for my birthday, I get myself a little somethingsomething special (like the Alexander Wang Rockie bag from last year). I’m trying to be a more thoughtful shopper instead of my typical impulsive style so before making any purchase, I always check online for price comparisons and even to read more in depth into the particular product to read reviews on the leather quality, the durability and one very important function especially for bags is how easy it is to open and close the bag itself. When it comes to price points, I can successfully tell you that no where in Hong Kong will you find prices quite like on Backroom.com. Not only are their prices more affordable, they also have a really great edit and you can easily put together a full outfit like the three that I’ve put together above.
