Hi TPFers,

This is such a great and generous community; you've nurtured my BV obsession through the years. I've lurked for far too long (10 years) leaching off your collective knowledge. I think it's about time I came out of the shadows. Here's my brief intro.

Username: Doncaster42
Age: 40+
Gender: Female
Resides: Melbourne (Australia), Singapore
Occupation: Family run business
Favorite Brands: Bottega Veneta
Clothes: Alice Temperley (if $ were no object), Monsoon (UK high street boho), Target (Australia - functional and cheap)
Bags: BV hobos only (Tornabuoni, Paille, Effiloche, Cravatteria, Fringe, Fuzzy, Velours, Shadow Embroidery...)
Hobbies: Reading, gardening, decorating, travelling, tending to my 'pets' (2 long-haired specimens of daughters who shed too much)
Favorite Foods: Australian & French fusion, Japanese, South-east Asian
Favorite Drinks: Boost juice, Fortnum & Mason tea, 'teh bing' (Singapore iced milk tea)
Favorite TV Shows: Killing Eve, Homeland, The Americans, Absolutely Fabulous, National Geographic and PBS documentaries
Odd things about me: I'm obsessive. I duplicate and triplicate things when I love them. E.g., I have 3 large Nero BV hobos (in constant rotation), 20+ pairs of Coach platform wedge sandals in 2 colours only
Things that scare me: Cynicism, sarcasm
Current obsessions: Tomas Maier's BV hobos and cabats (maybe, one day)
