One of our final stops in Tokyo was the Kinokuniya Bookstore. Since most of the books here were in Japanese, I just walked around, just browsing, not looking for anything in particular. Then suddenly, I saw this section. OMG. Full of super cute magazines WITH tote bags inside!!! I started getting super excited!!!
And one by one, I checked out the magazines with their corresponding free tote bags. These magazines, as I was looking through them, were actually different brands of mostly clothes and accessories. The magazines were like their catalogs for the season. What a brilliant idea!!! I wish they had these here… or start doing it for fashion brands here in the Philippines!
Most of the ones that I bought were 1,500 Yen. That’s more or less Php750 each.
The first one I chose was a brand called Malaika. I love ethnic stuff!
This was the magazine or catalog for the brand with their 2013 collection. Pretty cute stuff!
I love this one. My favorite among the ones I purchased
Tried a selfie. LOL!
The second one is from a brand called Earth Music & Ecology.
Super duper cute, too
And last but not the least, Moomin. I really liked the character because she looked like the Wicked Witch from Oz, Elphaba, and I love her
Love the color and design of this one
I love totes… This last one that I got was not from Kinokuniya but somewhere in Ameyayokocho I don’t think I’ll ever be able to afford a Chanel bag, so this tote bag will do for now Haha! I got this also around the same price, 1500 Yen, I think
Love my new tote bags. Love these because they’re shapeless, they’re light, it’s so easy to dump all my things in it! I actually wanted to buy more but all I could hear was my husband whispering, “Don’t you have enough totes already?!” Fine. These four will do… for now
Have a happy and tote-ful weekend, everyone! Message me if you happen to find irresistible totes like these here, please!
