If somebody asked me whether I am more a bag or shoe kind of girl, I couldn’t really answer, or I could but with a longer breath. The whole purpose of them is different, you know, so how could we (and by we, I very much mean I) chose only one favourite? There is plenty of space for both. And my cat. And my husband of course. Priorities. 😛 🙂
I adore fashion and getting dressed in the morning, but love the most that I am able to express /shield/ encourage myself by them. I’m a fashion girl from heart, but I’m also very aware that our consumption is bad and totally unnecessary. Not to mention that everybody has their limits and priorities when it comes to finances and desires.
I had this similar one from &Other Stories cos I’ve been a big fan of the shape for a long while, but it wasn’t the same.
It might be only me, but I’ve always found hard to buy handbags, probably because I’m very picky, practical and believe it or not but thrifty, despite or maybe therefore (the line is quite thin) I cherish the idea of use per value. Value for me, cos lets be honest, it’s not the same for everyone and that’s fine until we can handle it. Nobody choose a desire, on the contrary, desire choses you, and it totally ignores social, economical, or financial rules and situations, so we only can repress or work for it, but every choice has a consequence. The key is probably whether we can live with that.
And now the real deal, the difference is not huge in photos, but even bigger in the flesh.
My problem was always the branding and the high price it comes with. Now don’t get me wrong, these things are not mutually exclusive and I don’t really care about branding until I like what I get, and actually I don’t mind to pay a higher price if that’s justifiable and there’s not too much to sacrifice like being able to pay for more important things or just not to spend on anything else for a while. I’m at the point when a designer items are on edge, and while I could save up for months to get a specific thing, it would require too much, so much, that I cannot accept the consequence.
Love the subtle but unique design <3, and even though I wanted the small tan version, I’m so happy with this black one in medium size.
This was the point where luck/fate/providence came to the picture. You know, when something was just meant to be. When you are at the right spot (eBay) at the right time (my Birthday!!!). Like finding something desirable for the fraction of the original price. And this is what happened and this is how I become an owner of my very own Loewe Puzzle bag. It’s not from a fancy store, it didn’t came in a fancy box, I had to save up by selling other things in advance, but that’s fine with me, this is a
sacrifice choice I was willing to make. 🙂
What’s your desire and what would you do for it?
