I recently got the Red Snakeskin Specialist that was on Christmas sale.
I bought it online from brattybonita22.multiply.com, owned by Thea Secretaria, featured in Unang Hirit. She’s a young entrepreneur and every girl probably want to have her life: bag designer, business owner, and an office girl that’s mostly sent abroad.
I am generally an easy online buyer, meaning I don’t ask too many things, I contact you for the order, I meet-up to pay and get the product. I’ve bought several things online including two laptops, a camera and the usual girlie wirlie stuff (read: whitening and slimming products).
This being my first time to buy a bag online, I was, as Thea summarized: so makulit. Probably because I don’t usually buy bags even offline, I just wait for people to get tired of my bag and finally give me a new one.
Anyway, I got my new bag by meeting up with Thea’s mom, had a little chit chat at DQ Cubao and I was off with a very spunky lookin’ laptop bag. Although I must admit I was a bit offed that there was no receipt for the not at all negligible sum of moolah I gave up, oh well, online shopping has such risks.
The first thing I noticed was that the black material looked like the brittle kind of pleather, remember when your black shoes would break up in parts that moved the most? It was the same black material on the handles as well which made the handles tough and to not mold to your shoulder.
The lining also packed a punchline. It was a red bag with a bright green lining. Hah. Although I must admit that the bright green lining made the insides a little more easier to navigate, especially with all the things I cram inside it, so in the end the color was definitely a plus.
I had to put glue on the belt-like designs so that they stay put and not cause tears in the red material where they were looped through.
But if you notice on the photo above, the bag has supports underneath so that the bottom need not touch ground even when you’re shoulders are aching from the weight of your laptop and definitely had to put the bag down. The bag also stand up quite nicely and that’s a big plus for those commuting via train, just put the bag down and clip it between your legs :D
Also your laptop, tiny or of cinematic proportions, is very well protected once inside the bag because of the Uratex padding. This also makes the bag a nice hugbuddy for the long commutes.
It’s also quite an upgrade to my over-all look. An aunt asked me if it was a Prada. Hah! I wish, but hey, it does look as good as one.
So for recommendations, this one is definitely recommended. A must-buy for all of us girls who has to lug our laptops on our sexy backs day in and day out and still manage to look half-way decent and even fashionable. ;)
This is not a paid review.
You can find Bratty Bonita on multiply, facebook and twitter.
They also have another line called Tough Brat, see below. Love it. I wish I can have one of these for my birthday next month :D
