NiQua, a homegrown brand that sells quality leather goods, just celebrated its first anniversary at Habitual Coffee in Ortigas with a private auction for bloggers and media personalities.
It was an intimate gathering, almost everyone knew each other. The list of guests was almost the same as the previous year.
Meanwhile, I was caught in a Friday traffic frenzy and as a result, I arrived late. When I stepped in the venue, guests were already discussing about the bags on display over hot coffee and different cheeses dipped in honey.
Bunnie, the gracious owner of NiQua, greeted me as I entered the venue. She handed over 2 chips and a paddle for the auction which proved to be the most exciting event I ever attended in a long time!
|SGETTI Large in Brown Php 3,495|
dress: H&M | glasses: Prada | bag: SGETTI Large in Brown
I had my eyes fix on SGETTI- a large classic brown tote in genuine cow leather. It's structured and lightweight. As with any other NiQua bags, this does not have any lining too. But it has a magnetic enclosure for security. You can also add monogram to personalized your bag for a fee.
SGETTI Large Dimension:
This bag is very versatile and can take you from the office, to running some errands and mommy duties too.
