Appearance is a powerful thing. I know sometimes people can’t remember a word you’ve said, but can tell you exactly what you were wearing. –Ann Richards
I really love that G shoulder bag I’ve seen at mall. Unfortunately, I can’t take it home. Well I can afford it, actually. But if I do, I’ll be guilty by consciousness. *sigh*
[In an on-line conversation with a friend]
Me: Tell me which one do you prefer as for girls; having a one-fits-all handbag costs U$110 or ten old-fashioned handbags cost U$11 each?
Him: How should I know? What do you mean as for girls? You think I’m a feminine?
Me: Just tell me what you think!
Him: Hmm... difficult :D If one-fits-all handbag is all around; fits every clothes you wear, then it should be a good one. Otherwise, no handbags at all. Hahaha.
Me: LOL. It fits anything, like Gucci. But this is GUESS. One fits all. LOL.
Him: Hmm… you think GUESS handbag goes along well with a training clothes? I think not. :p
Me: This one is fabulous! It looks like Gucci.
Him: Hahaha…like I know what Gucci looks like. Hmm…is it leather? Or colorful?
Me: So-so. Not leather.
Him: Not leather. What then? Cotton? Or kinda suitcase? Hahaha…picture?
Me: Lemme see..
Him: It’s a handbag, huh?
Me: Shoulder bag.
Him: Shoulder bag? What’s shoulder bag like again? The one with two straps half circle?
Me: See this image to give you a picture.
Him: It’s a neutral color so I guess it’s good. Oh gosh 870 bucks! What dollar is that?
Me: LOL. Dunno.
Him: US then probably. It does look good though. Not my style but I’m not the one who wants to buy it :D but then again, the pics that I’m looking at are celebrities. They probably have someone to carry their stuff…haha
Me: it’s enough to accommodate my stuffs; wet and dry tissue, blooth paper, compact powder, lipbalm, purse, cell phone, ballpoint, notes, digicam sometimes.
Him: Dang! That’s a lot. Haha. Anyway size is not a problem then. So…yeah. I guess the only thing that stops you to buy that bag is the price?
Me: Hell yeah. Not really. The budget to be precise. LOL.
Him: Haha. Well…price’s too high for your budget that’s what I meant :p
Me: Yeah. LOL
Him: What did you usually do if you want something you can’t afford? Save up?
Me: Hmm…Wait until its discount. If after sale still can’t afford, I’ll just keep dreaming then. “Someday I’ll buy it with my own salary”
Him: Hahaha…yeah. I used to save up. Unfortunately the more I save, the more I become tight. Weird huh!
Me: LOL. That’s weird.
Him: Thank God there’s no HMV whatsoever selling complete DVDs here. I went to
Me: Hmm…I don’t have any plan when I save my money. If I want to buy something, I’ll buy it. But when it’s overbudget, I’ll leave it. So I got nothing to loose. I’ll just put it into my wishlist. By the time I have a job, I’ll have bought it. But if it still can’t, I’ll just pass my wishlist to my future husband. LOL. And if he can’t buy it, I’ll find another man! LOL. That’s what I do to get over it. Hehehe.
Him: ee-evil! :p I heard this talk the other day. It’s legal (yet an order) for a wife taking her husband’s money. But when it comes in opposite, they call it ‘stealing’. Hahaha.
Me: LOL. Yesss!
Him: The feminists must’ve fight against that, methinks :p So-called emancipation.
Me: But… a husband must be the backbone of the family! He has to earn the living.
Him: Ha. The lines that ‘provider should be a male’ should be blurred when the feminists start their campaign.
Me: dunno. It depends though.
Him: anyways that’s politician’s issue.
The conclusion is; he likes to have a one-fits-all handbag costs U$110 better than ten old-fashioned handbags cost U$11 each! Hehehe.
