Remember way back in January, when I told you all about how I was getting something really special for my birthday, but that I couldn’t reveal what it was just yet because a) I didn’t have it yet, and b) I still had to decide on what it was I wanted exactly? No? Oh well, I finally got my present and she’s a real beauty!

Because I turned 21 this year, I decided it was time for me to get spoiled and get myself a grown up bag. In other words: ding ding ding designer bag! So how come you didn’t see an OMG post pop up back then? Turns out that picking that one bag was a lot harder than I thought it would be. It took me (quick calculation) six months to decide on what I wanted. Six months of searching online, of deciding on one and changing my mind the next day, of going to Barcelona and Antwerp, only to come back empty handed both times… After a while I must admit that I got pretty desperate because COME ON, how hard can it be to just pick one?! Very hard, it would seem.

But, this story has a verrrry happy ending. Those of you who follow me on Instagram and Twitter may have seen a Chloé shopping bag pop up yesterday, and I can proudly announce that that baby was miiiine. To cut the story short, I went to Printemps this weekend and finally found THE BAG. The site mentioned they stored Balenciaga, Céline, Chloé, etc. and I knew that was where I had to go. I tried on a lot of bags and searched for the Célines for about fifteen minutes, only to find out that the information on the site is outdated and the stocked brands change from time to time. Bummer, but I guess it didn’t matter since I fell in love with this little one from the moment I tried her on.

Let me introduce you to my brand new baby: the Chloé Marcie small shoulder bag. Ahh, isn’t she lovely?
