Forgive me for on the fifth day of the new year, six days since I announced my resolutions, I’ve already broken one of them, particularly the third:
- I am practically a financial guru. My savings are huge as I don’t see the need to be materialistic.
I unnecessarily purchased a new bag despite my perilous finances (no thanks to the major works my teeth are undergoing).
But hep — the Libra in me justifies this acquisition by this virtue: I needed a masculine bag.
Consider the bags that I am presently using in rotation:
My bag for work:
My bag for trips to the mall:
Twiggy tote from Marks & Spencer. (credit: http://www.marksandspencer.com) Pang-maton, di ba?
My weekender bag:
And the only rugged bag of the bunch, for gym:
In my defense, this Nike was given to me by my sister. Needless to say, I’m not a fan 🙂
So while I was in the mall earlier, I figured, hey, why not get a non-vaguely masculine-looking bag?
Hence this brute from Gap:
The fabric is thick and the zippers are huge; even when empty, the bag works up my bicep as it feels like 5-freaking-pounds.
But fiiiinnnne… I’m not complaining; I’ll just work it like my rent is due tomorrow, lol.
And oh, New Year ain’t starting for the Chinese until the 27th, right? 😛
