i've not been posting on the board regularly since starting on grad school but for this month, i thought i would reward myself a little, especially since i've been meaning to get myself a lil something after snagging myself a place in a firm i've been hoping to get into. first up is the modern chain e/w tote from '06. i fell in love with the modern chain line a little too late (as is always the case!) and i had set my sights on the MC flap originally. but i later realised it'd be more practical if i got a tote instead because i'm always too many books and files around. so when news of the MC line being re-issued this year i was crazily excited but when i tried on the new '07 ones in paris, it just didn't make my heart sing as much as the original line. so when i saw this baby up for grabs, i just couldn't resist. i can't say this enough but i love the look of the leather on the back of the tote. and have i mentioned that it smells DIVINE! next up, is the metallic black lux flap! after seeing pictures of swanky's flap in the reference library and also irishgal's thread about her lovely lux flap, i just needed one. and finally for the something timeless, i've been meaning to get this for ages and so i finally caved in and got the timeless classic pearl necklace. thanks for letting me share my excitement (and joy) with you girls! and of course, a million bunch of thanks to the lovely PFers who helped in my little quest for the two bags.
