See, very recently I managed to snag myself a lovely white leather gold trimmed Coach Bag. It looks sooooo lovely and it’s perfect for work (and going out, and travelling…basically, it’s perfect! Hehehe). And the great thing was it was cheap coz it’s from the outlet store. So, good bargain + great bag + Coach = very happy Shireen. Anyways, it’s been paid for and is on it’s way to me.
Now, I usually don’t check the Coach website too often. I mean, why ogle at bags that have price tags I could almost never afford and taunt myself with the fact that I may never, ever own one in this lifetime…okay a bit extreme…in the immediate future. The last I checked out the website was back when I was in SFO and at that time nothing really caught my eye other than a purple planner. In the end, I never got the planner…but I bookmarked the page in my laptop anyways.
So, you can imagine my surprise a couple of days ago when I checked out the page and saw that the same planner now came in…GOLD!!! I was floored when I saw it…it looked absolutely gorgeous. So bling, so JLo…so ME!!! I wanted it, I needed it and I had to have it. There was no question about it. To me, it was like a sign from God. I mean, I got a white bag with Gold trimmings…how great is it gonna be to have a beautiful Gold Planner to go with the bag? It’s just perfect!
And with that one look, my lust began. All I could think about was how I was going to get my hands on that beautiful gilded planner. The first thing I did was to go to the nearest Coach Store (The Gardens) to have a look if they had it. So, after getting off work a little early yesterday I decided to go check it out. Imagine my anguish when the store staff told me “I’m so sorry, but Malaysia doesn’t carry the planners”. I was like “WHAT?! But does Singapore have it?”. She then says she’s not sure and she can’t check. Damn it!!! Damn it!!! Damn it!!!
I came home dejected…what was I going to do? How was I gonna get it? And that’s where Young Padawan came to my rescue yet again. You see, she has a friend, J who is currently in Singapore. So to help me out, she emailed J and asked her to find out if the Singapore store had it. But guess what? Turns out that J’s husband was actually in Oregon and going to return to Malaysia on Saturday! So, with messages flying back and forth, it was finally decided that J’s nice husband would see if he could get it there before he got back to boring, no Coach Planner carrying Malaysia.
Somehow, I think the stars were aligned in my favor coz he managed to get it! I was beside myself at lunch today when Young Padawan called me and told me that I was now the proud owner of a stunning, Gold Coach Planner. I think I looked like a goof ball and I’m sure the other people at Sushi King thought I was crazy. But, who cares…I am going to get my Coach Planner!!! Yeay!!!
By this time next week, I’ll have my lovely planner…Now, all I have to do is figure out how I’m gonna get my shopaholic hands on a lovely purse to match my Coach bag and planner. Sigh…
Now tell me...with such pretty packaging, how can you not lust after COACH? :)
