Vivienne Westwood Handbag [Mar. 6th, 2008|10:02 am]
Palace Miser: The Palace of Miserly Lolitas


[Current Mood |gigglygiggly]

♥Location: Yodobashi Camera, Osaka, Japan
♥Item: Blue tartan Vivienne Westwood bag
♥When I saw it I was in love- the understated tartan, the skull and orb charms...I love me some Vivienne *_*
♥I only have a print club~ I hope that's okay!

♥Total price paid: 23,000 yen ($221. It was 24,000 and I had a 1000 yen coupon. Yes. I buy brand with coupons XD). Original price? 110,000 yen ($1060). YEAH BABY.
♥Product details: Medium sized handbag, with the Vivienne print inside and a safety pin with four charms.
♥Purchase date: Two weeks ago
♥Availability: Yodobashi Camera is having a mini Vivienne Fair through this week- they have one more like this (in red), some larger bags for around $400, and accessories for huge markdowns as well! I know the odds of other people being anywhere near Osaka are small, but still. Good deals. o.o
♥Notes: Vivienne is okay to post here, right? It was mentioned on the egl post, so I figured it would be appreciated here.

Yeah, I'm moving to Nara in 11 days. (Which is close enough to Osaka for me to be excited about a sale. XD)

Well, we have all the stores (Meta, Baby, a Kera shop), etc- have you seen the Osaka Shopping Guide on EGL? There are also fun loli-eating places like Sweets Paradise, an all-you-can eat cake place and the Christion Cafe. What kind of stuff are you interested in? And what dates? There is a really good Goth club event the 5th a lot of lolis go to.

Eight hundred plus dollars off the original price? I think we have a winner! DING DING DING! And the fact a coupon was involved.... it's so beautiful... I almost want to shed a tear.

Yep! VW is fine to post. If you scroll down, the first post has 3 VW items.

I'm not too thrilled with the pic as I'd love to see the bag up close and see the details. I'll let it slide for now, but if you take a better pic, please post it. Oh, and please add "Vivienne Westwood" to the tags. I need to update that in the profile.

Eight-hundred dollars. Wow.

lol, my friend almost died laughing when I pulled out the coupon. 75% off is just not enough for the true bargain hunter!

tag added. And I will try to borrow a camera to add some better pics- it's a cute bag, so I'd love to show more details. :D

If I was with you when you bought it, I wouldn't have been laughing, but I definitely would have died. Died from my brain exploding of the sheer amazingness of the situation. How did you pay for it? VISA Rewards card so you get rewards points to get more free stuff? LOL.

Thanks for adding the tag. I'm looking forward to seeing the purse up close!

P.S. Every time I see your icon, I LOL.

Well, no rewards points, but I did use my yodobashi card which gives you 5% back in yodobashi store credit. So there was some money back I can use later! XD Seriously, I will be telling people how cheap this purse was for YEARS.

And my icon appreciates the love.

You're going to be sitting in your rocking chair 50 years from now telling this to your grandkids!

"Back in 2008... I was quite the bargain hunter. I bought a Vivienne Westwood purse for 75% off AND used a coupon!" And you can show them your purse all preserved in glass case. Haha. Family heirloom. So when you die, and your family has memorials for you, they can talk about how grandma's greatest achievement was buying major burando for super cheap. HEEHEEHEE.
