with a smile.
i used to be an avid bag lover. my methods usually in acquiring those lovelies were not unlike the hawk's, i saw, i loved, i dove and i conquered. sorry, more like i saw, i loved, i saved and hopefully it was still there when i dived and then came the conquering part and squealing with joy.
it's been too long to remember when was the last time i did a big splurge; lack of funds was one reason, lack of love and uniqueness were the others. everything changed more than a year ago when i was still in the starting phase of what to be an over-the-top obsession for blue colour. i saw a royal blue bag that made my heart skipped a beat, but too many uuhms and aahms, by the time i made up my mind, it was nearly impossible to get one. but i still very much loved the design and patiently waited for another colour that would make the same effect to this heart. fast forward 7 months, after numerous harassing calls and emails to some boutiques, a picture sent to me from kirna zabete was screaming pick me, pick me! and i did.
so after 9 months of deciding, 4 months of pre-ordering, 3 weeks of in-transit and 16,000 kms, it's finally here!
it's not a smooth general consensus though. while my brother subtlely called it a robotic bag, nic said it looked like an alien...
wth, did he even see the movie? on which part of the alien face looked like that. if it did, i wouldn't have childhood nightmares and boy the predators would laugh their ass off.
as for me, i'm gonna call it a smile bag.
