If I describe myself as a bag lady, it might conjure up the wrong kind of image, so I’ll rephrase that statement shall I, and rather say that I absolutely love handbags.
So, when on a holiday in Shanghai in March this year, I came across an amazing boutique (with an even more amazing name) I was in handbag heaven.
I give you “Dosail”. A range of luscious bags manufactured by the fabulously named Shanghai Dreamlike Fashion Industrial Co. Ltd
I was restrained and bought “only” two. One for myself and one for daughter dearest, but left to myself in a no-limit-to-shopping-budget-world, I would have gone crazy and shopped up the proverbial.
These were our 2 bags…
There is a huge range of bags for sale, prices are steep-ish but there appears to be a 15% standard discount if you haggle, which I did.
Between my limited Mandarin and the assistant’s equally limited English, I understood that the bags are pre-waterproofed. Each bag I looked at, they would instantly pour some water onto the canvas, so I presume it’s true.
Personally recommended – I put my money where my mouth is!
I have had so many compliments on the bag since I got back to Delhi, which is always nice.
Obviously I didn’t tell them I blog or write reviews (hey, I battled enough with getting a discount, so there was no way I was going to try and go down the blogging vocabulary route…)
But I do so love my bag, and on a return visit to Shanghai, will be making a bee line for the closest Dosail shop.
They have a website which is only so-so (has a translate button for bits of it) but you do get to see some photos.
