♫ G-Dragon - 그XX (That XX)
If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you probably know that I love all things cute and quirky. And by 'cute and quirky', I mean stuff that looks like one thing but is actually something else entirely...
|This is an iPhone casing.|
|This is a real camera.|
But I digress.
Today I'm showing you something similar, although from the post title, I'm sure you can pretty much guess what it is already. XD
|Look, it's a notebook! No, it's a novel!|
I was browsing through TaoBao again one day (yes, I am more than a little addicted to it) when I happened across this bag. Needless to say, I was like 'I need this bag in my life, right now!' because the super awesome-looking ones from Yumetenbo were way out of my budget.
|Yup, these. So pretty, but oh so pricey. T_T *sobs*|
|Gold embroidered L on the front.|
L is the initial of my surname, and also for Laura! It's like I was meant to have it! I swear, the alphabet was just a coincidence.
It opens up just like a spiral bound notebook if you flip it vertically, like in the pictures above. :D
The surface of the bag is glossy red, while the bottom is white with black polka dots. Admittedly, stripes would have made the deception more complete, but I guess the polka dots are kinda cute. The main body and flap of the bag is made from a hard, cardboard-like material (wrapped with glossy PVC), while the polka dot part is soft, allowing it to expand a little bit when items are placed inside.

Basically, it's good enough for me to use for going out for a casual meal or shopping trip, since I just need my purse and phone with me. :) The small confines of the bag make it slightly difficult to reach for things if you're in a hurry though, especially if it involves taking out your phone every so often to check messages or grabbing some cash to pay for purchases, so it's still more a fashion accessory than a practical item.
The bright red bag definitely makes my boring old tee-and-shorts monochrome outfit look a little bit more unique. ;)
