My First.

Friday, 18 July 2014

6 years ago today, I got my first Chanel bag.

Don't ask me what's up with that picture - I looked disgusting hahaha.

The reason why getting my first Chanel was so memorable that I had to have a picture taken was because I spent that July 2008 basic salary on it. My salary was credited after midnight and the next thing I know, I swiped the entire amount away with a debit card to pay for the Chanel PST. It was a 21st birthday gift for myself.

Ah, 21st.
Once that sweet young thing with the awful short bob and messy, uneven bangs I trimmed myself.

I was searching for these pictures, one picture led to another and then I went, "OMG I LOOKED SO CUTE LAST TIME! My skin looked so flawless and soft. I seemed to have more hair. I was less flabby. WHAT HAPPENED?"

Next week, I turn 27.

I guess we cannot be cute forever. Especially not when 6 years have passed.

Sorry for the digression.

As I was saying, I got sucked into the material world back then and it was hard to get out because Paris! Milan! London! Frankfurt! Rome! Big brands are easily accessible and may I add, at a HUGE discount of Singapore's prices so it was just handbag after handbag and I couldn't stop! (No regrets there by the way. I know many of you labelled me as materialistic, vain, yada yada, but I don't think you are in any position to tell me off because I buy with my own money, I'm not a gold-digger, H and my parents do not feed my material wants, and why should you be so concern with how I spend my money anyway?)

So now 6 years later, I am no longer using the Chanel PST, probably a maximum of once a year for the past 3 years. I have decided to pass it on to a new owner who will get more uses out of it. You are not just buying a secondhand bag; I am also handing over 6 years of memories to you. :')

I keep the bag in its original dustbag + box with stuffing after every use so it is still in superb condition. Caviar leather is very durable so there are no scratches at all!
