Hello

Welcome to my public thoughts on my personal life goals. In 2014, I set out to change my lifestyle, and I began with the best way I knew how - my closet. I share with you, how the road to Perfecting My Closet, is helping me achieve my ultimate life goals. 

Lovin' my 2 new bags from Mango, Lotte Centre

Lovin' my 2 new bags from Mango, Lotte Centre

It's been a long time since I purchased a non-designer bag but I couldn't resist picking these 2 up during my time in Korea. I used to work for Mango during my university years and I've always loved their style. There isn't one readily available in Vancouver except in the airport in the international side, so it was fun to check things out again when we were in the Lotte Centre. 

Mango red 3-compartment crossbody - a similar version can be found on the website depending on what country you're in. I like that my zipper track has the black contrast compared to the ones currently for sale. I got mine on sale for 29,000 won.

The first is a red crossbody with 3 separate compartments - it resembles the Celine trio, but instead of 3 separate zip compartments, mine has one zipper and closes all three compartments, while the middle compartment also has an independent zip closure. I also really like that the tab has a button that actually snaps into the side of the bag so that when you use it as a clutch, it looks more streamlined. I moved into this immediately during my trip for a hands-free option and it was wonderful. I love that the strap can be detached to be used as a clutch. The red is gorgeous and I received compliments immediately. Prior to my trip, I was looking for a crossbody to use during my trip that would fit my iPad mini and this one does! Perfect!

The second one is a simple pouch on a chain that I've surprisingly used twice already since I've been home. Surprising because I normally carry everything and the kitchen sink with me but due to my jet lag, I wasn't thinking and I just transported the bare necessities I needed and it's been working! I like that there are credit card slots built into the pouch. I'm hoping my jet-lagged experience will teach me that I can downsize, and I'll do it more regularly.

Mango cross-body small bag - still available on the Mango website, on sale for $14.95 (50% off) and comes in a variety of neutral colors. I got mine for 9,500 won. Below are some stock photos for clarity.
