It looks plain enough when you first see it, but what is mind-blowing about the AW Rocco is the texture.  It’s an exceedingly roomy leather bag laser-cut with uniform micro shredding.  It’s a bit addictive running your fingertips back and forth across it.  What you get is a velvety texture almost like suede but with more body and the sudden ambush of studs underneath (like terracotta warriors) is like the most unexpected come-on ever, don’t you think?  It’s clear why Mom zeroed in on this one like a heat-seeking missile.  Now, for the Kate Spade procession and what I got.  Read more to see what I chose from the Kate Spade boutique in Greenbelt 3.

These were a few bags I narrowed down for selection, my mission, which I chose to accept, was to choose one…

Now, I ended up getting this beautiful fluro-coral one which is spacious and so easy and comfy to sling over the shoulder but I actually had a REALLY, REALLY difficult time choosing between this lovely bright bag in particular and another one that was equally adorable but very, very different and kinda too “boxy” in the end.  The Ruby Street Bow striped Kennedy Bag had me torn in two, which after a long look kind of leaned towards “baby bag” in terms of structure.  That other striped sweetheart was still easily my second best choice but in terms of comfort and size this Goldcoast MaryAnne in Flo-Coral won me over.  And hey, it was lovely to be treated to a special bag like this by Mom, unexpectedly sweet is what she is, she still surprises me before 30…oh and speaking of surprises…

…it was a nice surprise as well to have been given this freebie…a couple of polka-dotted Kate Spade nail wraps which YOU CAN’T purchase over the counter.  Sure, oh, yes, you know what’s up next…
