Shopping Tales: A Louis Vuitton Purchase 10 Years in the Making

I recently added some pages to the blog and one of them was an About Me page. I answer all the questions I ask Girls of the Blogosphere. One of the questions is - What is one thing you are dying to buy this summer? My answer - "A Louis Vuitton Speedy 35. I've been saving up for it. I've wanted one since I was 14, now I'm 24. This purchase has been 10 years in the making. LOL"
I'm actually almost 25 so I like to think of this purchase as a nice early 25th birthday gift to myself.

I knew exactly what I wanted so I didn't spend much time deliberating in the store. That is what happens when you think about buying something for 10 years. There is no need to spend any more time thinking about. LOL.

I am a bit of a bag freak. I spend ridiculous amounts of time looking at bags on online shops like ShopBop.com and Net-A-Porter.com. After I left the Louis Vuitton store I headed across the street to Holt Renfrew where I spend about an hour looking at all the bags I look at online. The bag addiction will NEVER end. I decided that my next purchase will be the Alexander Wang Rocco Mini in black with brass studs and a strap. I hope I don't have to wait 10 years for it! For now I am going to enjoy using my Speedy!
