The Grey Focco! FFS!

I feel a little bit ashamed about this post...

Yes I got the grey Focco bag as well and quite honestly I blame the likes of @Jen who told me in my White Focco post that THIS was the gorgeous one...

Well it is okay? As soon as I ripped it open I smiled and when my mum saw me on Saturday she demanded I get her one - so I did.

It's the same deal. Gold hardware etc....but this time the colour is nude/grey/lilac.

I think I should let the photos speak for themselves. I have nothing else to say. I am too embarrassed. I will however add that:

a) This may be my favourite one - even though the side zip has a wee hole in it - as the colour is perfect: softer than the white and tonally neutral enough to wear with anything;
b) It's typically sold out on the eBay seller site I recommended but I am sure others have the same one - I just did a quick search with "studded bottom bag grey" in eBay and loads of sellers in China appeared, all using the same image so no doubt, they all come from the same factory:
c) It looks nothing like the photos on eBay; and
c) THIS IS REALLY IT. I won't be buying more. All the colours I was curious about have been exhausted and I have got a grip.





I think my next post will be about my favourite eyeliner of the moment...La Ligne de Chanel, which Musing on Beauty correctly noted had been swatched on my hand in the photos takes the other day. If you want long-lasting beautiful liner....this is your man!

Okay, off to watch True Blood! 

Bye all and hope you had a good Monday!

  1. Love love love it :) I'm on the hunt for a bag in this colour, thanks for the heads up!

  2. Nothing to be embarrassed about! If you've got something good, why change?

    It's like those people who buy the same shirt in EVERY single color imaginable..again, if it's good, stick with it. =)

  3. I own the REAL Rocco But seriously, it is way to heavy to use as an everyday purse so I am totally thinking about getting this Grey Focco it is just stunning and looks way lighter than mine (which I don't even wear because it hurts my shoulder...Yes this is that bad)

    Chloé.

  5. oohh lala.. i love that lilac color and it goes well with your nail polish and the blazer. hmmmm.. maybe i need one of this too hahhaha.I love the black one even though the zipper was broken on the side.I like how you could put so much stuff inside and how light the leather is.. Perfect indeed :) x

    ReplyDelete
  6. Haha, I've read all your 'Focco' posts and let out a little squeal at all of them but this one is damn gorgeous!! x

    ReplyDelete
  7. @luckymirai - ah glad you liked it in the end - I was worried! yes my side zipper is rubbish but I will never put anything in it so I can cope with that :)

    @Zoe - heehee: it's a beauty I think :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh my, it's beatiful! I have the black Focco and wanted the grey too, but honestly thought it would be a proper "grey" and very drab. I am absolutely dying to get the tan/brown colour. I don't think I've seen any true to life photos of that colour.

    ReplyDelete
  9. i love the grey, now i want one! lol

    ReplyDelete
  10. This is the colour I have of the Rocco <3 love yours with the sequins! x

    ReplyDelete
  11. LOOOVE THAT BAG! I have one in my watchlist on ebay but wasn't sure of the size cause it was hard to tell without a person holding it. I think I will have to buy it now :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. That's gorgeous! I've always lusted after the black Rocco, but this grey looks so much better! However I tend to be really cautious about buying knocks off etc from ebay, I just don't trust the sellers :/

    ReplyDelete
  13. Every time i see a Focco post I manage to resist, but sod it I am going to get one, they are such a bargain I can't justify not getting at least one, which seller did you actually use? And would you recommend their service? xo

    ReplyDelete
  14. Haha, nice to read it's Chanel, as I've had my eye on these for a while, you might just enable me to get a couple, the rose platine looks fab.

    And this bag, well... I need to go check eBay presto!

    ReplyDelete
  15. @Parisa - well i am definitely not getting that one: i have to stop somewhere :) haha I think you should go for it and let us all know what you think!

    @mw - haha i love it! I was so shocked at how lovely it was when I got it. The photos don't do it justice on eBay.

    @Rachel - ah jealous of your real Rocco :) heehee

    @MaviDeniz - definitely go for it :)

    @Ha.rose - oh I trust the seller I used: bag that style is the name of the shop and I posted about it before. I know ebay can be tricky sometimes though :)

    @Ms Bennet - I used the same one as the last two times: http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/bag-that-style-6 - arrived the next day!

    @Musing on Beauty - this is their cake liner and honestly FANTASTIC! Hope you get your hands on the bag -and hope that you like it :)

  20. Now this one I really do like, still not sure how I feel about the fact it's so clearly 'inspired by' the Rocco though so think I'll resist.

    ReplyDelete

  75. I agree with a lot of folk that the grey looks best. Spotted Kristin Cavallari with the real Rocco in dark grey (somewhere in a mag) and loved it!

    Would love to see some comparison pics of the three colours.

    If you do...please, please call the post Meet the Foccos. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  76. OMG! Laura, you are *making me* fall in love with these little Foccas!!!! ;) I don't know which one to get...black...white or this gorgeous grey one?? If you *had* to only choose one which would it be??? Thanks doll xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  77. So I ordered the black thanks to you. Then i was tempted to buy the white because it is such a bargain. And now that I saw your pictures of the grey I'm like, "Hm well, I might as well snag the white AND grey."

    lol
