Hello ladies! how are you all doing? I am doing great with my new all purpose Michael Kors Jet Set tote. I already have a few MKs in my wardrobe but this one takes the cake, and I really can’t stay apart from this. It has become my new best friend :).I am carrying it almost 24*7. I am a complete Bag-o-holic, so in my home its a Bag-Niverse rather than a Shoe-Niverse :P. Whenever I go out for shopping the first section I hunt down is the bag section of any store. My close friends do know how much I love bags so on my birthdays I get nice and stylish bags as gifts from them, love you ladies 🙂
It was a Saturday, me and Mr hubby were out and about in Oxford Circus, idling away our time late afternoon as we were meeting some of our friends later that evening, plans were made for pub hopping and clubbing in the Soho area. So just to kill time, we went inside Selfridges for some afternoon tea and ended up at the new Vintage Salt rooftop bar (what an oxymoron). It was a great experience, the sun was out, rooftop was perfect for us two. The view was quite nice and so was the atmosphere around us. We ordered a pink lemonade and a super refreshing iced tea, if you follow me on instagram then you have probably seen a photo of the drinks. We did not go for the second round as I was absolutely becoming restive to go to my favourite section, and guess what! As I am obsessed with bags, I ended up buying one from the MK section but it wasn’t an easy choice. I was in a dilemma between the one I got and another one which was pretty too. My husband and the lady at the counter finally came to my help and I always believe that when you are perplexed its better to go for a second opinion. As I was looking something for regular use my husband insisted on going for the black one saying “there is no better utility colour than black as it goes with almost everything”, the lady seconded him adding to it saying that this is one of their best sellers due to the classy design. I was a happy buyer kissing and thanking my husband for it. He knows how much I love and adore …..not him but bags:P. So till date he has never said no when it comes to a bag that I want.
We headed towards Zebrano Carnaby where we were supposed to meet our friends. It’s a pretty cool place close to Soho square with great music and very nice drinks. Happy hours were on so we ordered a strawberry daiquiri for myself and a cucumber cooler for Raj. Meanwhile, I was so anxious to get my hands on the new bag that I decided to dump my old one in the shopping bag and transferred all my stuff to my MK one. I was so comfortable carrying it the whole night. The size is perfect for everyday use.
Why I would recommend it for everyday use :
- The color says it all.
- The size and shape is easy to carry, The straps can be taken both the ways, as a shoulder bag or placing it on my wrist to give a more chic look.
- It is spacious enough to carry one’s everyday stuff to work (wallet, phone, camera, magazine, notebook, water bottle, make-up kit.
- It is perfect to take out for evening drinks and dinner, so saves one from carrying another bag to work.
- The outer pockets are really cute and can be utilised for keeping stuff you need….. like sunglasses or movie tickets or oyster card (London tube card)
- The top is enclosed with nice golden zip which making it a bit more secure for me to carry it wherever I want with ease.
The day went really fantabulous for me, had fun with my lovely friends, drinks, dance and walking through the London West End late night with my new MK by my side 🙂
I hope you guys enjoy my photos and of course my bag. If you have any questions regarding buying bags and in particular this one, do let me know because you guys are important in my life and I love you all.
Stay healthy, Stay fashionable. 🙂
