Its still the last few days before the summer sale ends and I wanted to take advantage of this to buy some presents for my family. I was wondering what to get till I walked past a Carpisa shop. Its a clean-design looking shop but warm and inviting. And its green! My favourite colour! And when you enter a Carpisa shop, you cant help to notice their green turtle mascot.
Looking around, I instantly knew that this would be lovely presents for my mum and my sister. While there are a few auntie looking things, mostly are a plentiful of stylish, wearable bags. But the prices were affordable, with many of them costing about 25 euro and above. And with the sale going on, with all the items at 50% off, even more happiness … yay!
I know, I know, that sounds very auntie. But what can I say? Being a housewife, stuff like these are one of the most exciting things that can happen to me
While as much as sometimes I doubt the genuinity of some “made in Italy” goods, Carpisa looks legit as there are so many branches and sold in many large shopping areas. Moreover the brand has been around for about 10 years so its reputable.
Anyway! After much peering, and contemplating, (I’m amazed that Cart didn’t get bored while waiting for me) I’ve finally decided on a couple of bags and I think I’ll just show them here since my family hardly check my blog regularly anyway
For myself, I chose this simple but elegant beige handbag with tan trimmings with a matching wallet to replace my old and fraying one. I like this design as it looked wearable enough for work (even though I’m not working) and casual. And its roomy enough to put all my portable necessities. All I need now is a nice pair of tan shoes and I’ll have matching everything. Hehehe!
Because of the sale, I got both the wallet and bag at under 22 euro! There is also a pink as well as a green version of this bag. Shucks! I think I would have liked the green one better I think. Too bad its sold out.
For my sister, I chose this Tyra-fierce looking gold bag with faux snake trimmings. It looks stylish. If she doesnt like it, I’ll take it back
And for my mum, I chose this luxurious cream coloured leather bag which looks perfect for going to Malay weddings. And knowing her, having sackfuls of relatives and friends, she’d be going to one at least once a week. Anyway I think she’d love it. If she doesn’t, I’ll take it back too
And no, I’m not going to post the prices for the two bags. Even though they are both individually more expensive than my bag. The last thing I would like, is that my sister and mum start to fight with things like “I am more special! My bag is more expensive than yours!”
