My Love for Tote Bags

19 Jul

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! 🙂
