The title doesn’t really have any content relevance for my first post except that it’s the song I have playing on my iTunes… because I’m trying to memorize it. Umm… don’t ask.

I’m not sure what the purpose of this whole blog will be, but for sure it’s not meant to dump any drama for yo mama or any personal emo matters. Just the good stuff… like rainbows and unicorns… or not.  But who knows how often I’ll be even updating this. For all I know this might be my only post. Last time I actually put some time into blogging was some time last year until I’ve completely neglected it only because it became a little bit too high maintenance for me. So here I am, starting anew, kinda sorta.

Not that anybody cares, but I’ve been shopping around for a bag. I’m just gonna come clean and admit that I’m a label whore. I love designer bags. If money came out of my ass on a daily basis, I’d probably own more bags/purses in every shape and color (that and shoes and clothes). Anyway, I’ve been on a look out for a cute satchel (aka a cross-body bag for those who don’t know). I’m kinda, sorta willing to splurge, but not so much that I’d go for broke (because we’re still in a recession!). I just want to get myself something pretty because I haven’t really. I guess you can say it’s my ultimate graduation/having a job/birthday/Christmas present to myself.

I honestly fell in love with this bag. I actually already bought it, but it ended back to the store because not all of my stuff fit inside. The size is perfect for this style, but I think I just bring too much “essentials” with me that I’m not really not willing to do without when I’m out and about. But I’m back to wanting it when I saw it again on my recent Las Vegas trip. I’m just afraid that everyone and their mom will have it too.

So on my sick day-off today, I decided to do some online browsing for other potentials.

I saw this bag from another blog. This one definitely looks bigger than the LV bag, meaning more room for my stuff! I especially like the zipper and the stud detail on it. I still have to see it in person, and I’m not even sure if it’s available here in California since it seems like it’s only sold at Bergdoff Goodman which is a store non-existent here. Hopefully Vegas will somehow have it somewhere with it’s kajillion designer stores down every block. They have to have a Marc Jacobs store there or some other place that carries it.

I’m not sure how I feel about owning a white bag since it gets dirty easily. It also comes in Olive, but I have to check it out in person how ‘olive’ it is. But I’m really digging the style of this bag. I’ll be able to sling it on my body or carry it by the handles with my arm.

Balenciaga and Chanel will have to wait. Maybe when I’m ballin’ enough. Ok back to the Lakers vs. Cavs game. Let’s go Lakers!
