Where to begin? I went down to London about 3 weeks ago to visit my BF (who is working in Chelsea) and stopped in the Hermes boutique on New Bond Street. I saw the loveliest compact Dogon wallet and have been thinking about it ever since. I thought that maybe I'd get it for my 20th birthday, since I'd be in London again for it. (As some of you may have noticed, I made a thread about the wallet, but ultimately decided that I'd hold off for a while since it was quite a bit of money.)

So finally Saturday the 12th came around and it was my 20th birthday! I went down to London again and had the loveliest time. My BF took me to Paul for breakfast, and then we went to Harrods and went shopping on Sloane Street. Then we saw Avenue Q (which is fantastic by the way) and ate at Nobu for dinner. Then my BF surprised me with my first ever orange boxes!!! Inside was that wallet I've been lusting after - the compact Dogon in blue jean togo! (Can I just say how much I LOVE this color? I think I need a matching bag!) And it came with a friend! I don't know the exact name of it, but my BF thought it would be perfect for me since I love to write (and it has matching green paper lol!) He said he really wanted to get the Lagoon color since he thought it was such a fun color, but the Sloane Street store said it was sold out all over the UK. But I just love the bright green - I think it's called vert anis? Anywho, here are some pictures, one with my white Chanel (another bday gift that wanted to join in the fun lol)! Thanks for letting me share!
