It's really not my fault. Promise. *Blinks big innocent eyes*
But anyway, putting blame away, I'd like to say that I've added a few new 'family members' to my little bag collection.
Before introducing them, well, I'd like to say the reason why I buy authentic bags is because ages ago when I was 15 or 16 years old or so (seems like ages ago anyway wtf), I could only afford to buy handbags (from Jusco [a departmental store]) which were around RM10 - RM 20 (around 2-3 GBP). And back then I promised myself that next time in my life (not my next life okay!!) , if I could, I will buy designer handbags.
So that's what I'm doing ; fulfilling a
expensive promise to myself.
It started off with Nine West (extremely cute bags, they're still waiting for me back home in very careful storage). Then I moved on to Coach (lovely, am still using my Lunch Tote off and on, 2 of my ipods' cases are Coach as well, and my makeup bag is as well).
Then my parents got me my LV Speedy in Damier Azur. And then my mum decided to 'immortalize' my darling Candy a.k.a.my dad's unofficial "girlfriend" by putting her picture on Anya Hindmarch's Be a Bag - The Rio.
After coming here to the UK, I caved and bought my superbly huge-able-to-keep-ohsomuchjunk Prada Shopper bag and then my much beloved and prized Balenciaga First.
And I'm proud to say that finally, I've gotten a Gucci bag & a pretty much huge-ass Mulberry canvas one (which I will be using for light travelling or hand luggage). Makes me miss my Marc Jacobs Pan Am bag.
Yeah, was pretty much supposed to 'inherit' my mum's vintage Jumbo flap in Black with gold chains (30+ years old!), but the fucking bastard younger brother of mine has stolen it apparently. Come to think about it, God knows if whatever bags I didn't put away in storage (namely the Speedy and a few others; can't remember them all) are still around. Sigh.
Anyway, to cut my grandmother story short, I had fun looking back at my previous unwrapping posts. Just click on all the links provided to see them if you wish =)
