My current bag lust

Lately I’ve been having a lust for luxury handbags, this season is full of amazing totes, shoulder bags and evening bags. I blame my handbags addiction to my friend Uti who introduced me to the luxurious world of beautiful handbags.

I used to be a shoe girl, i don’t really mind spending $$$ for a pair of shoes as long as I like them and they’re comfortable for my feet. I blame my feet for my shoes addiction. I have small and bony feet and some cheap shoes are just a killer for my feet, is it the hard leather or the craftsmanship i don’t know but they’re not made for my feet at all. I also have a low pain tolerance. If it’s painful and give blisters then i rather not wear them cos the pain for me just not on the foot but it goes up to hips and head. I know some girls can tolerate pain as long they look gorgeous but i’m just not one of them girls.

Well with handbags, there are no excuses like pain or comfort. Why girls spending thousands of $$$ for a handbag? quality, individuality, authenticity, cos no one else have it, show off??? I have no idea, every girl has their own reason. Mine is beauty. The beauty of a design, originality, art… yes I think it’s like art. We all know beauty is subjective and I think my handbags declare my style. You can make a statement by just carrying a handbag (they call it a statement bag). I don’t really care if people like/dislike my handbags or the outfit i’m wearing because it’s  not for people to admire but it’s for myself. A fab handbag makes me feel lux!

I love this bag cos of the shape and the colour, I saw it first in  Selfridges London http://www.selfridges.co.uk/index.cfm?page=1001, also available from http://www.net-a-porter.com/intl/Home.ice the handle is just perfect for the wrist. Definitely on the top of my wish list.

A handbag or another pair of shoes?? decision decision!

Am i a shoes addict or even becoming a handbags addict? i don’t know. I think my addiction changes every year.

Last year I was a dress and bikini addict, I bought so many pretty dresses and bikinis mainly from my favourite OZ brand Zimmermann http://www.zimmermannwear.com/ now i ended up with so many which so difficult to actually find the time and event to wear them! When you live in Melbourne, the chance of wearing a bikini is 1:175 days.

Well now I have a dilemma, since i got here i realise that all my handbags are quite big and not practical for travelling, so i went on a mission a few weeks ago to find a messenger bag that still look pretty and can be worn casual or glam. I found this LV bag louisvuitton-damier eva-clutchYou can wear it like a postman bag or as a shoulder bag which  what i was looking for. It’s still big enough to fit my purse, mobile etc, and i like the fact that even when you wear it as a postman bag, the gold chain detail that hanging on the side is very pretty.

I love pretty shoes!!! i think that’s explain how i have a weakness for pretty shoes.

I saw this pair of Miu Miu banana flats in Navy in Miu Miu store in Westfield London (Nice shopping mall!, http://uk.westfield.com/london/ .. worth a visit), but they dont have my size. It’s so pretty it made me feel so happy by just looking at it and the velvet is just so soft. This morning I checked it in Net-a-porter, http://www.net-a-porter.com/ and they have size 36! ooooh the checkout tab was just on the tip of my finger but i had to discuss it first with my lovely fianceé because i have promised myself that our relationship is based on honesty [no more hiding shopping bags in the car for days and sneaked them to the bedroom or saying that it’s a present from my good friend (…) hahaha]. First answer was a NO cos apparently i already have so many (and also i just bought 3 pairs in the last 2 months, well 2 pairs were on sale! i mean when else you could get a costume national boots reduced from AUD1200 to AUD400?!!). After a discussion, yess i called it a discussion he might call it sulking, he said you could buy the shoes but you won’t buy anymore for a long time err long time can be relative right?? anyway, i asked bravely can i still buy the LV bag?? (finger crossed) and yaay it’s a yes but i have to chose! aaagh i never win with him but that’s why i love him so much :-), so buy the shoes now and the handbag later (no specific time) can be 2-3 months or even a month who knows, or ditch the shoes and get the handbag now? Help!!!
