All throughout high school and college, I loved buying handbags. However, I never really had enough money to buy real deal designer bags. I got a HUGE thrill from bargaining in the Taiwan night markets and in New York City Chinatown for the “close to reals” or knockoffs. One of my friends and I got it down to a real strategy, where we pretended we weren’t really THAT interested in the bag, said that other vendors sold their bags for cheaper, walked away so that the sellers would come chase us down again to lower their price, we did it all and we were good. The most expensive bags I ever bought for myself were Coach bags.
For my bachelorette party a few years ago, my sister-in-law bought me my first black/white Burberry bag and I was ecstatic and later on bought me a pink one too. And since then, I’ve gotten many bags as gifts and bought a few for myself. I’d like to own a bag in every color, is that too much to ask? It’s like owning a pair of colored skinnies or striped shirt in every color too, not too crazy of a want.
But anyhow, today I’d like to introduce you to my newest designer handbag, given to me by my AMAZING mom for an early 30th birthday present (really early, isn’t she amazing)? The medium sized Chanel classic flap in black caviar with gold hardware. Isn’t she gorgeous? I’m so scared to take her out of her dust bag in fear that she’ll get ruined haha. But I know I need to get over it and start using her more often, because what good would a handbag do if it sat in its dustbag all day?
Oh and by the way, this outfit was inspired by Two Birds Inspiration Monday picture of Lauren Conrad!
