ST: My Newest Love

I finally got me my Samantha Thavasa purse in Tokyo! I kept seeing these in the Vivi magazines and couldn't wait till I found one of the stores.
I believe Samantha Thavasa is only limited to Japan and New York. I only found one store available from the US site and on the Japanese sites, there's plenty of em. Some big celebrities have advertised for the brand in Vivi, such as Paris and Nicky Hilton, Beyonce and Solange, Jennifer Lopez and I think Victoria Beckham.







The bags are just so gorgeous. The range from casual to more dressy, and with a variety of wallets as well.
I got one of the newest purses which is advertised int he Vivi magazine as well as Beyonce.
Ah..my precious 285yen purse, the most expensive accessory I've ever purchased.
I love the design on this. The inside has the same design, except the words are black with a white background. This comes with a small clutch that's attached to the bag.
I forgot to take a picture of the inside and I probably won't remember since I won't be using it in Korea. I just can't stand all the pushing and shoving so I don't wanna risk ruining my bag.
The arrow just points to the same one from Vivi, except in pink.

There's another one I want so badly, but this time it'll be easier for me to go to NYC to get it.
When I have enough money again... XD

I also got Ayumi's 10th Anniversary book from Japan. It's got a bunch of supposedly never before seen photos and messages from Ayu. I think it's also sponsored by Vivi, hence the Vivi written all over and being advertised in the magazine.
I wish I could read Japanese right about now.

Just before I went on vacation, I ate at Marion Crepes at Wangsimni Station and the guy took a Instax picture for the store. I never saw the picture after it finished developing, but here it is now!

I'm waiting for this book to come out in Japan in September, hopefully I'll be able to nab it online or have Tim's dad help me get it from HK.
Don't know who this cat is? It's Maru from Japan!! Check out his blog and YT channel! Super duper cutie!


Please bear with me, I'm slowly reading all the updates and commenting ^__^v

Samantha Thavasa store in NY doesn't carry as many bags as its store in Japan. Its bags are girly and cute, but seem to be more well known in Japan than in NY.. hehe

Hi,
Ayumi has a monthly column in Vivi magazine, where she usually writes a short message with various snapshots of her activities for that month. The book is a compilation of her columns for Vivi from 2000 to 2009. I have the book and love it too!
