Nuuuuuuuuuuu!~, I screamed inside. I was devastated. I thanked her and slumped back to my loner seat at the back of the bus and sulked. This always happens to me- when I ask people where they got something, it's always somewhere foreign and unattainable.
The next 5 years, I've been looking left, right, and centre for a kisslock bag like the one she had. I still haven't found one just like it yet, but this one from Wholesale7 came pretty close.
For the entire oufit, I based my look on one of my favourite colour combos: teal and brown. For some reason, I think they look so good together :) As you can see, I also mixed different mediums in this ensemble: a polyester shirt, a cotton & satin vest, a silk chiffon scarf, leather boots, a pvc belt & bag... Usually PVC isn't my material of choice, but today, this kisslock bag is my favourite.
This kisslock bag comes with detachables straps in 2 different lengths- one for cross body and one for satchel. What's great is you can remove all the straps so that this bag doubles as a cute clutch! Also, it may look a bit flat and small, but this bag actually halds quite a bit of stuff. Everything I shove into my Balenciaga City I can easily fit into here. Inception!?
Besides the utilitarian point of view, I also like the design on the kisslock clasp. It has a wonderfully viney & flowery design that looks very intricate. The edges have pleats that can be expanded and puffy looking, which gives the bag less of a structured shape, which I like.
After 5 years of searching, I'm momentarily satisfied with this find.
Why are the things you want always so out of reach sometimes?
Can you guys relate to my story?
