I first heard about Purse Podium when a friend retweeted a link to its Facebook page. It was quite the serendipitous moment because I was Googling for designer bags at that time! What are the odds. :P Anyway, I scoured through the Purse Podium site for the perfect bag for me, one that fit my size and budget, and I chanced upon the Marc by Marc Twisted Q Riz Hobo in a sort of bronze/gold color.
At first I wasn't too sure about the color since it may be difficult to pair up with my outfits, but my fears were baseless. Like a gold necklace or bronze bangle, the bag goes with (more or less) everything! I also love the uber soft Italian leather. As for the size, it's perfect for me since it complements my body.
Transacting with Janis (owner of Purse Podium) was a breeze. She answered to my emails quickly and had the bag delivered when she said she will. I think she's been doing business since 2007, selling authentic designer bags at much less than mall prices here, plus she also offers layaway plans for those on a tight budget.
Awesome bag, awesome shopping experience overall. I'm always checking out Purse Podium's FB page for new uploads and I suggest you do too! ;)
I look fat but I swear it's the top. :/
