Look What I Found : Leather, Stitches and TRON.

I'm starting this new section in my blog to share things that I found (in this case, bought, heh.)

1. Meidina purse \ RM 70 ~ Amcorp
My husband bought this for me at a shop in Amcorp which sells handbags from Korea, forgot the shop name. I thought it looked cool, kinda like Tron because of the lining and the material which I don't know what.

2. "Hermes-leather wallet" \ RM60 ~ Plaza Shah Alam
 My husband bought this for me too, haha, I was looking for a new wallet to replace the one I've been using since 2005, a Samuel & Kevin denim wallet my Art Director from CTG gave me as a gift from Hong Kong. My husband says the wallet is in such a bad state that if I threw it in the lake I would definitely pollute it. Anyway, I have never been a sucker for brand names, I liked the design of this wallet because of the styling, and the clasp has a 'H' which when can be viewed as an 'I' from the side. Either way, it is my initial Irina Hariati, heh, yeah, I have the weirdest reason for buying things. Oh, its a fake, but it looks good.

3. Brandless lace up ankle boot \ RM80 ~ Amcorp Flea Market
I've been looking for a brown lace up boot for a while, the ones I found are either too expensive or too 'embellished'. This one was just perfect and it was lined with purple velvet on the inside. It didn't have any brand which is one of the best reasons why I like it.

4. "Gucci Handbag" \ RM40 ~ Amcorp Flea Market
Yes it is a fake. The guy who sold it held a ignited lighter to it, speaking in some foreign language pretending to be Malay, but I think he was trying to say that the material doesn't burn or something like that. I liked the simple shape, its cute size and the 'neatness' of the structure. Luckily the "Gucci" brand was slightly debossed on the 'leather' and so small so you could hardly see it.

So yeah, I've got more items that I want to share. I have always had a thing for leather and stitches but I can't afford real leather so yeah, fakes rule!!
