I have decided to move my blog to my Tumblr site le sac de dame. I was finding it difficult to keep up with all the social media outlets available.

My Louis Vuitton Bag

I recently found the American Express card statement for the purchase of my Louis Vuitton bag that I purchased in the spring of 2004. I cannot believe that I spent that much money on one bag.  I remember it being a sunny Saturday afternoon. I also remember feeling nauseous and weak in the knees after making the purchase.

In 2007 on my trip to Paris I had to visit the new Louis Vuitton store on the Champs-Elysées. It was amazing. I was quite tempted to make a purchase, but I decided that I did not need another Louis Vuitton.

However, after 8 years I am still using the bag. That cannot be said for many bags that I have purchased over the years and then given away.

Out of all of the bags that I own the Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 can hold the most items and still not feel heavy. This is very important to me as I carry a lot in my bags as my chiropractor can attest to. It is also a bag that I can use all year round. I am paranoid about getting rain, salt or snow on my bags. I do not regret the purchase now. Would I spend that much money on a bag again...probably not unless I won the lottery.

Legacy Rory Satchel vs. MacBook Pro

I have been saving for a new laptop because the one I have now is old and is slowing down. I have been good and have not purchased a new bag in months.

However, I saw a bag on the Coach website that caught my eye. I was hoping that I would receive the Coach preferred customer card so it reduce part of the sting of buying the bag.  I fell in love with the Leather Legacy Rory Satchel (Price $398).

I received the valued customer card at the beginning of September. The discount is $100 toward a purchase of $300 or more to be used from September 5, 2012 to September 30, 2012.

I went into the Coach store in the Eaton Centre to see what the bag looked like. Sometimes an item looks better online that in the store. The bag was more beautiful than I could imagine. The colour is amazing. I was going to go back to the store later that week as I had not made up my mind whether I was going to make the purchase. I have not gone back yet.

I made the decision that I need the laptop more than a new bag. I still think about the bag everyday.

Desert Rose Necklace - Jewelmint

This past week I wore this necklace from Jewelmint to work. I knew that I loved the necklace when I saw it on the website, but I did not know the reaction that I would get. I received many comments and a lot of stares. A also received a remark referring to Fifty Shades of Grey, which I have not read (okay I read a preview I downloaded to my Kobo. It was only two chapters).

The Next Big Thing

I first read about Emeli Sandé in the April 6, 2012 music issue of Entertainment Weekly. I decided to check her out on the Vevo app. I watched the video for Next to Me and I was instantly hooked. I love that song. I play it over and over.

Unfortunately, her album was not available on iTunes. The album will be available June 5, 2012 on iTunes. I will definitely buy it. It is refreshing to hear a great singer and songwriter.

Check out the album sampler "Our Version of Events" on Youtube.

Flo And Go Tote

Lululemon Athletica
Lululemon Athletica (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
For the last five months I started taking yoga classes again after many years. I attend a yin yoga class every week at 889 Yonge. It is a great environment and the class is awesome.

The one dilemma I have is that every week I am carrying three bags with me to class. I go to class right after work so I have to carry everything that I need for the day. I carry my purse, my yoga mat tote bag and another bag with my workout clothes and anything else that I decide to carry that day.

Lululemon has the flow and go tote bag that would allow me to just carry two bags to class. The bag has room for the mat bag as well as workout clothes. I don't know if I should buy the bag....

Double Take

Whenever I shop at the store Winners, I never know what I am going to find. There are times I am pleasantly surprised at what I find. Yesterday I did a double take when I found these two items.

This Furla croc print leather "Working Girl" cosmetic Case was $39.99. It is my first item from the brand Furla. I have always wanted one of their bags.

I also found this MOR Gift Pack (Let It Snow). The price was $19.99. The last MOR gift pack that I purchased was at Holt Renfrew.

The gift pack includes the following items:

Triple-Milled Soap (Snow Gardenia) 200g/ 7oz

Lip Macaron (French Vanilla) 10g/ 0.3oz

Hand Cream (Snow Gardenia) 100ml/ 3.3 fl oz.

I keep my other tin to store items on my night stand.

JewelMint - VIP Mystery Gift Bag

Today I finally received my first purchase from JewelMint. I purchased the VIP Mystery Gift Bag.

JewelMint is a site that selects jewelry to match your style based on a style profile that you complete. Kate Bosworth and stylist Cher Coulter bring you designer jewelry just for you for $29.99 month. They do ship to to Canada now. There is a $9.99 fee per item charge for shipping to Canada.

These are the items that I received in the VIP Mystery Gift Bag:

I have to say that I was a bit disappointed when I opened the package. The first pouch had these bracelets - multi-colour, gold-plated and black. The bracelets were not something that I would purchase for myself.

The second pouch had the earrings. Considering I do not wear earrings on a daily basis, I do like these ones. 

Not pictured is a small tin of Nivea Creme (10ml) with the picture of Rihanna. 

Also included was promo codes for BEAUTYMINT, STYLEMINT, and SHOEMINT.

What Time Is It?

I spend a lot of time looking for the right watch. I do not wear a lot of accessories, so my watch has to stand out. Last year I could not decide between a Michael Kors watch or a Marc Jacobs watch.

I decided to purchase this Diesel watch. I love watches that have a large face. This watch is 2.25 inches wide. I am not a fan of red, but it was the only colour that they had. I purchased the watch at The Bay on Queen Street in Toronto. I get a lot of comments about the size of the watch.

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from the site CentrSource. They had a deal for a Micheal Kors watch. The sale price was $98.00 (regular price $280.00). Immediately I went to the site and made the purchase.  Afterwards I thought that the deal was too good to be true. Everyday I could not wait to get home from work to find a package waiting for me. No package. I started to panic. Finally the watch arrived and I could not wait to look at the watch. It is a beautiful watch. What a deal!!!!

My Pictures Are Gone

Somehow the pictures on my blog have been deleted. The only explanation that I can come up with is that it was done my mistake when I was creating a Google+ account. Why??????????

It will take some time for me to try to update the pictures.

Bloomingdales: Important Update About Your Order

This morning I was excited when I opened my Shop It To Me daily email and saw that a Michael Michael Kors Wallet was on sale for $44.25 regular price $118.00. I immediately placed the order along with a MICHAEL Micheal Kors Crossbody Bag  on sale for $48.00 regular price $128.00.

The webiste had the following statement above the Add to Brown Bag icon: Availability: On order: usually ships within 11 business days.

An hour later I received the following email:

We're thrilled that you indulged in a little retail recreation - you deserve it.

Remember when we told you that our inventory system was down, so we still needed to confirm your order? Well, we hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but we discovered that this merchandise (listed below) isn't currently in stock.

    Vendor    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION                                            Quantity
                    Michael Michael Kors Zip Around Continental Wallet    0
                    MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Crossbody                    0

The bad news is, we had to cancel your order. The good news is your account will not be charged for these items - or you'll have your refund or credit promptly. If you used a Gift Card(s) to make this purchase, a new gift card will be issued to you promptly.

We hate to disappoint you because you're one of our favorite customers (and we don't say that to just anyone). Please come back and shop with us soon.

Your heart was probably set on your original order, but we promise we have something else meant just for you.

Yours truly,
Bloomingdale's    Customer Service

There is no good news. I was so excited. I could not wait for the order to arrive. I will probably not order from Bloomingdales again. Other websites seem to be able to indicate when an item is sold out. Thanks for getting me excited for nothing.

The only time of the day that I will carry a small bag is in the evening. A clutch and wristlet are also perfect when you are on vacation.

Happy New Year!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, and best to you in 2012. I just returned from vacation (somewhere warm) and have to return to reality. Back to work tomorrow.

I left for vacation on December 26th, so I was unable to do any Boxing Day shopping. Hopefully I can still find some great deals. This was the first time that I went on vacation and did not buy anything. I am going through shopaholics withdrawal.
