Practicality and functionality are the prime considerations of celebrity mom Rica Peralejo when shopping for bags.

Looking comfy in "daster" and sandal in the photo she posted on Instagram on Friday, January 15, 2021, Rica paired her OOTD with a fake Louis Vuitton bag, which she received as a gift.

In the caption, Rica revealed, "Okay disclaimer, hindi ako mahilig sa branded.

"Binenta ko na actually yung mga branded bags ko kasi sa totoo lang hindi ko naman magamit.

"I would rather buy a tent with that money wahaha. But okay, someone gave me this and when I used it BONGGA IT DID THE JOB.

"I love the tote-ness of it. It’s so... tote-ful? [emoji] It is like a bayong na bagay sa all at kasya all."

Her admission, however, drew mixed reactions from netizens, prompting Rica to put to right the misguided ones among the comments.

She wrote, "I am in a remote area and when I turned on data what greeted me was the news that I am in the news for saying this thing about my bag.

"Some of them have added a thing or two to what I said here so pls read well and see where exaggerated my caption for news’ sake.

"Tandaan na the spin is theirs not mine. (Like I prefer daw fake branded bags eh sinabi na nga I am not into luxury bags sa caption at ginamit ko lang to kasi natuwa ako sa function, di nagbabasa! [emoji])"

The 39-year-old celebrity mom continued, "Also, I turned off commenting kasi nagaaway away na tao.

"Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga very kind sakin, at sa mga harsh, expected ko naman na yan.

"Minsan lang nakakapagtaka yung level ng bashing na galit na galit sakin akala mo naman inapi api ko siya [emoji]

"BUT THIS IS PART OF THE SOCMED PALENGKE. Ganyan na talaga life these days. Lahat kasi may sarili ng mic [emoji]."

Rica hasn't been active in the showbiz scene since she decided to focus on her family five years ago. But she regularly updates her social media and uploads a vlog to keep her fans updated.
