A Slight Obsession

Happy Hump Day!

Ok, I just had to blog about this b/c I feel like I am borderline obsessed
right now and need some feedback. One thing you should already know about me
is that I LOVE handbags. I have been on the hunt for a great gray purse for
over a year now and have just not found that one that screams...

Well, until last night...

Let me introduce you to a bag that is all the way in London and is named
"Pippa" after Pippa Middleton, Kate Middleton's sister. If you don't know who
Pippa or Kate are you should probably just stop reading! You know Kate Middleton
who had the wedding of the century this past April in that quaint little church in
London called Buckingham Palace! Yeah, that's them!

So, last night I began my search online. Searching for gray bags I went. It didn't
take me long before I ran across a purse blog called Bagbliss. This is where
the obsession started. So, her website led me to the actual website in London
where this bag is sold, Modalu. OF COURSE the bag is sold out and is highly sought
after right now especially in Europe because this is the actual bag that Pippa herself
carries and has famed uber popular! I am on the waiting list, but am very hesitant
because from what I have read/heard when this bag has come in before it sold out
the first day!! What if I'm not around when I get the email? What if everyone gets to
a computer before I can? Then what? Then what?? ha!

Ok, so enough talk you say... let's see this bag!

The color is called "Shark." Isn't it pretty? I mean it's just a great
classic/clean bag. It's not going to ever go out of style. I love that and I
LOVE the color. It's such a unique gray. I feel like the color can go all
year long. Love the zippers on the front too and the gold hardware.

So, it has 3 different compartments.
I love structure and organization in a purse so this makes me very happy!

Here is the beautiful Pippa with her "Shark" bag.
I think this picture was taken after the wedding and this is when it became
the most sought after bag in the UK.

Here is another picture of her carrying the bag.

She also has the bag in this camel color... which is also GORG, but
I am sold on the shark shade.

Here is a youtube tutorial on the bag where you really get a feel for
what the bag looks like! : )

So, I have never been one of those people who has waited for such a sought after
celebrity kind of item. I feel like an obsessed groupie or something. I mean YES, I think
the bag is all the more attractive because a girl like Pippa carries it and has
such a classic/polished/modern style. Maybe I would kind of feel apart of
the Royal Family when I carry it, but with all that said I really really do love the
purse and it is what I have been looking for...
Structure. Gray. Classic. Hardware. Size.

So, here are my options:

1. Wait on Modalu to contact me by email when the bag comes back in
around October and HOPE that I get the notification and have time
to purchase.

2. There is literally ONE person selling it on Ebay. If you even try to contact this seller
and make an offer I will hunt you down. No, really. The problem is it's a
pre-own. I have talked to the girl selling and she only used it for a month and is ready
to move onto another bag. She said it's like new. But, I'm not sold on her price either.
She is jacking the price up and trying to profit off it b/c it is sold out everywhere.

Once I find something I want... I. WANT. IT!!
N. O. W.
ha... so stay tuned for my future decisions on this bag!

Comment below and let me know what you think!

  1. I feel you, yo. This is why we are friends. I am the exact same way about something. I say, look at what a new purse looks like after carrying a month. Probably pretty dang good. Ask her if there are any scratches or dings in the purse. YOU WANT FULL DISCLOSURE. And then.. I probably buy it. :) Now I want this stupid bag.. thanks a lot.


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
