Vintage chic: Moni Moni Splendor Bag

Hope everyone had a spooky Halloween weekend. I didn't feel cheerful or bubbly over the weekend because my body was slightly achy. First thing, I want to announce the winner of oversize watch giveaway first. Congrat to Midtown Girl , she is our lucky winner!!! Please e-mail me your shipping information.For months, I have been dying to find me a fun grey bag, but with no avail. It's not because there is a shortage of yummy bags. Rather, I really don't feel like paying thousands for a bag. Months ago a gal pal showed me her new Moni Moni bag and I really liked the supple leather, design and the price. I am eyeing the Splendor bag in grey; it sorta reminds me of a Balenciaga in design except it's more casual and sporty. I like the versatility as it can be a shoulder bag or a side sling messenger bag. Also the stud detail and the hanging heart are just so savvy. I fell in adoration with Luella before because of the hanging heart. The issue I had with Luella was the weight of the bag. With Splendor, I don't think a gal will have such an issue. This baby retails for $495 and measures 13 x 9.5 x 5.5 inches.
Apparently I am not the only gal going gaga over Splendor bags. Celebs such as Paris Hilton, Jessica Alba and Karolina Kurkova are also fans of the bag. Don't they look so stylish and sporty at the same time? What do you think?
