When I first saw the Burberry show in September last year, I like the rest of the world fell in love with the monogrammed nylon back packs. Cute and lightweight...winning combination. I wasn't going to purchase the bag because I am lucky to have Two Chanel backpacks (Burgundy leather and my graffiti one) so I didn't feel the need to add another to my collection, despite it being so cute. Enter London Fashion Week and seeing everyone cool totting one around, monogrammed and plain! I stood my ground and said no despite walking in with work colleagues who ordered theirs. I felt a little left out but I knew it was best.
So a week after minor sobbing over me being sensible...My best friend Gaspard told me to pick up his Burberry order before heading to Paris for PFW. I sighed, I huffed, listened to a lecture on how he ALWAYS picks me up in Paris, then I went to get it.
He only went and ordered it for me!!!!! Cue the gushing, blushing and squealing in the middle of Regent Street Burberry. The box was HUGE for what was inside and the sales assistant nearly made me go on the Eurostar carrying a giant box until I convinced him it would indeed fit in a carrier bag. I must add, I was so blindsided by this, my wonderful friend Gaspard is beyond the perfect human and never asks for anything off me but my friendship. Apparently this is our 4 year anniversary present. I'll accept it as a "thanks for being my mate" present and shall continue to extort luxury items off him to pay for my friendship (I am laughing very hard as I write this...I am humble and pretty sure I am the craziest person to befriend!).
Just look at the details!
What do you guys thinks?
