Here's my take on FURLA'S CANDY S BAULETTO.
Summer 2011 marked the huge comeback of the Jelly fashion. Furla's candy bags and footwear brought the fun and style back in Jellies with their lust- worthy bags and whimsical footwear.

Ottonella Mocellin served as the bag's image model. Furla's candy baulettos became such a hit that it went OOS everywhere in the world right after a certain online shopping site/boutique replenishes their stocks (I should know, I've been hunting this bag down in different international shopping sites for a time!).
The no- nonsense bag is made of high quality PVC material. Furla eliminated excess designs, introduced it in eye popping colors, and gave free automatic locks to every bauletto purchase. Its utter simplicity made me fall for this bag real hard. It stands out on its own sans the scarves and flashy key chains.
One of the most sale- able colors is Dragon Fruit Pink. Thank goodness, Jameela Velasco made my dream come true. She decided to give her car a new look and sold this bag to me. She's heaven sent! I could never thank you enough. :D
Dragon Fruit is a hot fuschia color. It's quite see through, but not as much as the clear and yellow version of this bauletto.
Plastic has expanding properties. So if you prefer a spacious luggage, Furla's candy bag might be perfect for you.This is how the interior looks like if it's loaded with stuff. Take note that I bring big pouches and wallets with me everyday. And everything went inside the bag easily, without having to worry where to place each item. I used my Lumix LX3 to take a pic of the bag. And the LX3 fits perfectly right in it, plus more space to spare. To give you a concrete idea of how big this bag is, it's almost as big as LV's Speedy 30, but at a more affordable cost.
Stitches are excellent, and on its own, the bag looks and feels sturdy. However, the plastic PVC might be heavy to those who prefer bringing lightweight bags. You can still own this, but make sure that you bring less and lightweight stuff because the material is quite thick, which can add to its overall weight.
Let me present you a summary of the PROS and CONS of this bag:
- Gives you the bang for your buck
- Easy to clean
- Rain- proof
- Safety feature (has an automatic lock)
- Price (if you get it from another country, it's cheaper as compared to our prices here)
- Weight (can be a bit heavy if you put too much stuff in it)
- Can warp or melt if placed on hot surfaces or near fire (well, knowing that it's plastic, I suppose we all know that it reacts negatively to anything that conducts heat!)
Here's a friend of mine, Erick, posing and having fun in front of the camera with my Furla Candy Bag. It looks gorgeous in the pics (and you too my dear mela :D)!
