I began admiring this Balenciaga bag in Gris Pyrite somewhere early this year. It’s in a color I like and it’s in the style I’ve been curious to try. It always takes me a while before deciding on a new bag, though.
I kept a picture of this bag and shared it with anybody who was unfortunate enough to cross paths with me (well, except my mum, because I knew I’d end up being lectured). Think I was obsessed with the bag for a while, that at one point, people were like, “Tak beli lagi ke?”
This one time, I opted to buy lunch and have it upstairs at the discussion room behind my work station with a few coworkers. My laptop was accompanying me in that room, too, and on my tab, was the picture of the bag. A former teammate walked past my seat, saw what I was doing and totally went WTF. Think he’d seen that bag on my screen for at least 17 times. He threw his wallet to my direction.
“Beli je lah! Nah, pakai credit card I!”
Unfortunately he was only being sarcastic and took the wallet back before I could grab it.
Anyway, I finally got the bag late last week. My motivation? It was the last piece.
I had to have it.
