I've always dreamt of having the perfect crossbody bag that isn't too huge and overwhelming, yet not too tiny either. In short, I was looking for one that would fit just enough things I need to get by each day.
Apart from that, I wanted a bag that was classic — one that I know would be a staple for at least the next few years and can match with any other outfit I wore. What better color would it be than a combination of the most classic colors, black and white? Of course, I wanted something that was affordable, and with that said, the quality of the bag shouldn't be compromised.
I've always loved Kate Spade for their sleek, classy yet stylish bags and accessories such as wallets, iPhone cases and more. However, my wallet definitely wasn't ready to burn a hole if I were to buy one from one of their physical outlets in Singapore.
Recently, I was introduced to Fashion Vocal, an online retail store based in New York that carries all your favorite designer brands such as Prada, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Pandora, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Coach, Chloe, Mulberry, Kate Spade and Michael Kors, just to name a few.
Interestingly, this retail store, no doubt based in New York, was actually set up by two fellow Singaporeans, for Singaporeans (they ship worldwide for free!). Understanding that designer products in Singapore may be overpriced at times, Fashion Vocal strives to give consumers the lowest prices possible.
You could imagine my joy when I found that perfect Kate Spade crossbody sling from Fashion Vocal in my favorite color combination — black and white. Despite its size, my everyday items such as my wallet, camera, iPhone, lipstick, lipbalm and keys could fit snugly in.
I loved the fact that this bag matches most, if not all of my outfits (both formal and casual) and it's honestly becoming one of my favorite bags that I'll carry anytime, anywhere.
Most importantly, I loved Fashion Vocal's service as well as the fast and efficient shipping! My parcel arrived within 8 working days and the parcel came in a gift-like packaging furnished with ribbons and a handwritten card. How sweet was that!
The Fashion Vocal online retail store carries so many different labels that you'll be spoilt for choice (like I was). The best thing is that all of the prices there are much lower than retail prices in Singapore! I would like to think that Fashion Vocal is the perfect place to shop for some Christmas gifts for your loved ones, and now's definitely the right time to shop!
