Stitch Picks: Bags, birds, and velcro


In an effort to diversify this blog's content, I have invited El Bosquejo's very first columnist, . Presenting: Stitch Picks (as told to El Bosquejo). For his first column, Stitch will decide which is the best bargain among my latest thrift store steals.

Stitch says the fabric of Eighty & Ninety's canvas gym bag is good enough as a blanket. It's navy blue color goes well with white. Kudos to genunie leather details and very functional multi-pockets (5), not to mention horizontal adjustable buckles that turn that bag into a versatile weekender.


What Stitch digs about this Christian Dior monogram messenger: soft interior lining, the white leather details (there's a big "1" stitched on the front, beside two white leather stripes), the big D buckle, the navy blue and white shoulder strap, and the interior zippered compartment. Just about covers everything about this bag, which Stitch assures me is genuine. A steal for PhP720!


Stitch says these Arnold Palmer mid-cut velcro sneakers have sent him moonwalking in his dreams.


This Lucky Brand tote, Stitch says, looks good enough as a tapestry. Details: durable stitching, thoughtful pleating, two interior pockets, and a small exterior ring for a keychain.


Stitch says it was a tough call deciding which purchase was the best bargain, but all in all (as you could see), the Dior messenger stole his heart. I have to agree.
