So I am off to University tomorrow!
So nervous & scared and un-prepared.
However I do have my new bag.
The most amazing bag that ever existed.
Peter Pilotto's bag for Kipling. My dear readers I saw the above advert in October's issue of Elle magazine UK & I just melted. I was in love, I looked at that page almost everyday and went on Kipling's website to see when they would be out. The website has a countdown, the countdown was long. It was just under 2 weeks! 2 WHOLE WEEKS! And then it hit me, the bags would come out on Friday the 17th of September & I would be leaving on Sunday the 19th of September. I wouldn't get the bag in time because I would order it & it would arrive while I was in University!
And then Thursday rolled around, on Thursday the 16th of September the bags from the collection appeared on the website, I could finally see what was around & pick my favourite one. I loved them all. But the deciding question was WOULD MY LAPTOP FIT INTO THE BAG! How practicality took over, I could not tell from the pictures if my laptop would fit. Then I realised that it didn't matter I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO ORDER THE BAGS FROM THE WEBSITE. SO I really did need to see the bags in person. But where & how? I was leaving in three days & the Kipling bags were not on sale in STA.
I shouldn't have worried, I could just go into London of Friday.
Yes that is what I will do.
So I did.
And I got to the Kipling store on Oxford Street around 10.40.
By 10.55 I was the proud owner of THE AMAZING BAG PICTURED ABOVE.
I was the first person in the Oxford Street store to have purchased one & screw being weird for how excited I was about 'a bag.'
But this is not just a bag, it is me in a bag, it is the perfect bag. It was THE ONE.
Yes there was an anti-climax to the story because all i did was hop on a train but it you were my mother you would understand. I have been going on about these Peter Pillotto bags for weeks.
What can I say I was in LOVE with a bag.
A Kipling bag.
