Okay so y’all know how much of a budding Chanel hoe I am, I have some of their shoes to their skincare. I don’t have anything from their pret-a-porter since I’m too fat for their sizing, I tried on a FR44 Tweed jacket last year from their Metiers D’Art collection and it was still too tight on me (I’m usually a FR40), and their bags.
Now I promised to myself that I’m not gonna buy a large Chanel 2.55 caviar flap bag or any of their classically overpriced bags until I can buy them with my own money. I like the feeling of buying something luxurious with the money that I know I worked hard for – although I’m probably gonna be buying it at a very high price when I get the chance to buy it… higher than how much it is now since their bags’ prices always go up every year, not to mention their bags’ current prices are ridiculously high enough already! It’s gonna be worth it nevertheless. The story and journey to how I’ll get it will be worth it too – rather than getting it in just a snap of a finger (or more like swiping my mum’s plastic card that is lol) which won’t make me value the bag as much.
So y’all have probably have figured it out. This ain’t my bag! It’s my mum’s – well it was almost mine if I just said so. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I was just in Hong Kong a couple of weeks ago and my mum usually never leaves the place empty-handed without buying something fancy whenever we get to another country just so we can get to pound the tax-free shopping!! In fact, she asked me if I wanted a Chanel bag to which I said no. Proud of myself for rejecting that strong moment of temptation and for sticking to what I believe in!! Do you think I did the right thing?
I’d say dream about something, in this case, my dream Chanel bag (mind you, I’m not that shallow, I still have plenty of dreams to make them a reality!), then have faith in it coz nobody else will hand it to you. It’s all in your hands to reach for that dream.. no obstacle will be too difficult and no mountain will be too high for you if you really want that dream. Then, grab it very tight, never let it go and make it come true!!!
Hang in there baby.
Ciao for now kids xx
