I’m stuck on this yellow bag obsession, and I blame you guys. Well, that and a perfume review. So I can find the right color, but the price isn’t in any purse budget I have this century! then I find the right bag, but the yellow isn’t quite right, it’s muddy. I really *need* this bag for some reason. Maybe because it’s spring? Here’s an out of the budget option –
Isn’t that perfection? About 2k worth of perfection. Ack! So then I have the “budget” Tory Burch option –
The price tag is more hospitable to my budget, like $395 – still pricey – but I’m not sure I like the size or the grey in it. I do like the color of yellow, but for 395 I have to really, really love it. And…. I don’t.
Now, the Balenciaga Twiggy marigold bag is – well, , look for yourself.
It’s not exactly the sunshiny yellow I wanted, but it’s doing it for me. I had a red Balenciaga bag, the bigger one that I paid a small fortune for. This one isn’t as much of a fortune, but, $900?@?!? this requires more saving and justifying to get there. Maybe. Maybe not.
Spring, I tend to get wacky ideas of what I
want must. have (see yellow bags above). Spring is when I always choose inappropriate boys, stock up on champagne, finish off some of the best of my red wine I was saving for a snowy day that never came over the winter. Since the day it Byredo Tulipe released, it has been the scent that for me sums up all of those things. I don’t know why. I’m not going to review it here, I’ve reviewed it before. It gets okay reviews or just overlooked, but something about that slightly cold’ish freesia smell and something almost like cool plastic just does it for me in the spring.
I think it’s the idea of someone trying to stuff a tulip in the bottle. Some tulips do have a smell, but it’s more of an impression – it’s the green, stem, petals, like flower shop.
But I didn’t want to talk about a particular perfume. I know you all have one – the perfume that seems to get no love or attention anywhere else, but you have an inexplicable fondness for it that defies logic or sense. Like inappropriate boys or girls. So what’s yours? Doesn’t have to be a spring scent – oh, yeah, best of spring is coming in the next couple of weeks, yeah! – it can be any perfume or it can be your version of little yellow bag that you can’t seem to live without now.
