My mom received a complimentary Rustan's gift certificates from her bank. She got it through accumulated points from credit card purchases. Anyway, she has long been wanting to replace her old Delsey crossover bag. She wants a genuine leather bag to replace her old one but she is on a tight budget. Armed with her PhP 1000 gift certificate and a PhP 2,000 money, our shopping expedition was set yesterday at Rustans Shangri-La Mall. It was a tough challenge but we managed to pull it off.
With her PhP 3,000 shopping budget, I thought we could not find an affordable leather bag inside an upscale store like Rustan's Department Store. At first, I told her to look at Le Sportsac. Although it fits her budget, she finds the designs too quirky for her age.

It was my dad who spotted this The Sak Kendra Crossbody Leather bag hanging on top of a shelf. I was the one who instantly fell in love with its texture and color combination. My mom was torn between this Cherry Block and the Brown Snack Multi color. The former won simply because the sales representative had a new one in stock.
- Size 11.25in x 1.5in x 10.75in (LxWxH)
- Strap: 10in to 25 in
As with every genuine leather article, this bag smells so good. I can't stop smelling it! It also soft to touch. This bag is a steal at less than PhP 3,000. All the while I thought we could not buy a nice imported leather bag with her budget.

The shopping experience at Rustan's was excellent. The SA was the one who went to the cashier together with the payment. All we have to do was seat back and relax at the couch strategically positioned near the bag department.

She was very happy with her purchase and she can't wait to use the bag herself. I convinced her to let me review and post an entry first ; p Thanks mom!
