NOT A MANHATTAN LOVE STORY


As some of you might have seen on my Instagram, I went a little mad and bought myself two designer handbags within a few days. One Karl Lagerfeld clutch that was an absolute bargain, and the one and only bag I've wanted for more than a year now - the Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Satchel in black. There's something about designer shoes and bags that makes girls go a little crazy. I don't know why we all crave for designer items, but most girls I know, do. When I look through my instagram feed, it's mostly all over super expensive items where I always ask myself 'how could they afford this?'. I mean, Michael Kors is still on the list of affordable designers, as well as Karl Lagerfeld, but I had to work hard for these babies.
To be super honest with you, and I know I haven't been talking about my job in Sweden this summer a lot .. here's a little story. I've always been doing internships in summertime, almost every summer since I'm 15. They've all been in Fashion or at least Fashion-related and gave me a lot of experience, but less money. As I did two long-term internships this year, I wanted to do something different, a 'super easy' job with a wage that would blow up my bank account after all these internship-wages. Oh well .. so I worked for four weeks, six times a week, in a luxurious hotel in housekeeping, means, I was a chambermaid. Unfortunately, it wasn't as fun as it seemed to be in Manhattan Love Story, I did not meet the love of my life while wearing amazing designer items from other people (oh wait , that one time ... ;-) BUT after these four weeks, I decided to treat myself. I've been wanting this MK bag for more than a year now and spontaneously bought it last Saturday in Vienna, and guess what? It feels pretty good to work hard for something as pretty as this bag. I did a not so fancy job and got myself a super fancy handbag, that's it :) I don't want to justify myself, just point out that it's not normal for me to pay more than 300 euro for a handbag.

There was one day this week where the weather was truly amazing, so I grabbed my new Chicwish dress and paired it with black pumps that I hardly wear as I am not a pump person and my new bag. A simple hairdo that makes my hair look shorter than it is and ready for a fancy dinner with the family as my sister just finished uni and has her master's degree now. Super proud of her and what she achieved within the last few years - makes me even more excited for uni! Anyways, I've been crazy busy sewing a cape for my sister which I just finished, and now I'm ready to move! 3 days to go! Happy Humpday xx
