Last March I joined a Live in Chino contest held by and Banana Republic Indonesia. To be honest, at first I didn't even know what Chino is, and yes, I know I'm so lame because I just knew it from fashionesedaily hehehe. Don't know what Chino is? Thank me later, here I copied-and-pasted this for you:

Chino cloth is a kind of twill fabric, usually made primarily from cotton. Originally used in British and French military uniforms in the mid-1800s, today it is also used to make civilian clothing. There is even a style of pants, "chinos", named after the fabric, though sometimes they are referred to as "khakis" (source here)

Long story short, I was a lucky bastard for being one of the winner! I uploaded my photos in the very very unforgivably last minute, only got 5 voters for both of my photos and guess what, the dearest Banana Republic team chose me to win the prize: a Banana Republic shopping voucher worth IDR 1.000.000 (approx. $110). As it's planned, I gave the voucher to my mom and slightly forced / assured / persuaded her to buy the shoes (that I think) worth buying. At first she agreed, but when she unwrapped the shoes at home, then she changed her mind. She was like: "The design is, indeed, sooo me. But you know I could never wear such wedges because they're just too high. I guess I'll just let you wear them." However she still keeps it in her closet until now. LOL.

Again, thank you muchas fashionesedaily and Banana Republic Indonesia. :))

As with the things that would go into the louis vuitton

would aswell accept some added weight. How to score big-ticket accoutrements like a Monogram Multicolor
. Monogram Multicolore
could be actual expensive, but if one could acquiesce it.
