Kim Chiu admits that she, too, has done some binge shopping for designer bags, much to her regret. And realizing she hardly gets to use most of her luxury bags, she admitted to having pangs of guilt about her splurges.
In a vlog she uploaded on YouTube on July 25, she called them her "worst purchases."
1. Prada Pyramid Frame Bag
Kim's first "worst purchase" is her Prada Pyramid Frame Bag. According to Kim, the bag is now a decade old. She bought it for its rose pink color, but it has changed to brown.
She said, "Ang mahal-mahal nito. Bakit naging brown na siya ngayon? Ano pa yun e, siguro mga ilang years na ito, 10 years ago na itong bag na ito.
"Hindi ko alam kung bakit nagbago talaga yung kulay niya. Hindi ko alam kung bakit siya naging brown. Dahil dati siya ay medyo pinkish na rose color.
"Pero ngayon, shiny brown na siya tapos hard pa siya, matigas. Hindi ko alam kung anong nangyari sa kanya, hanggang puwet [nag-brown]. Siguro, tumanda na rin siya. Pero tumanda naman siyang pretty. Parang maganda naman siya in a way. Naging brown yung pink."
2. Balenciaga Top Handle Bag
Kim brought out her Balenciaga tote bag, which the 31-year-old actress said she was able to use only once after buying it.
She recalled, "Binili ko ito sa airport dun sa parang papunta kami sa tour... sa ibang bansa and then layover namin. E, ang dami kong dala, ang dami kong bitbit 'tapos naghahanap ako ng ididikit ko sa hand carry ko na trolley.
"Tapos nahanap ko ito dahil meron siyang pasukan ng trolley... Yun na rin yung first and last na gamit ko sa bag na ito. Hindi ko na naalala. Pero maganda siya, marami siyang lalagyan."
3. Prada Cut-Out Saffiano Fori Laser Bag
Another Prada bag Kim regretted buying is her Cut Out Saffiano Fori Laser handbag.
Kim said, "Matagal na rin ito, e, as in, ayan, nag-iba na rin siya ng kulay. Hindi ko alam kung bakit."
Like her other Prada bag, Kim bought this one for its color. She said the bag has been stained by the color of her jeans, so she hasn't been able to use it since.
A similar bag in a different color is available on theluxurycloset.com for USD1,105 or around PHP56,000.
4. Fendi x Fila Tote Bag
Kim's Fendi x Fila tote bag is practically brand new, but the actress is yet to use it.
She said, "Hindi ko alam bakit ko binili ito. Sobrang laki. Kasing-tangkad siya ng upper body ko. Ayan pa siya, hindi pa siya nagagamit ever."
This bag is available on luxedh.com for USD1,582 or around PHP79,500.
5. Prada Double Handle Tote Bag
Kim hasn't used her light blue Prada Double Handle Tote Bag in Saffiano Leather either. And so she had nothing much to say about it, "Hindi ko pa siya nagagamit kaya hindi ko siya matawag na best."
A similar bag was recently sold at Yoogiscloset.com for USD2,870 or around PHP145,000.
