If you read my post ‘BE CAREFUL‘, then you’ll know that lately I have been practising the idea of positive affirmation. Well you will be pleased to know (unless you are either my parents or bank manager) that once again it has worked.
Ever since setting eyes on the Fendi monster collection, I was totally hooked. Instantly recognisable and devilishly cute, I knew I wanted a big fat piece of the pie. Proving to get my paws on said pieces proved slightly more difficult though. Cutting a long story short and with a whole lot of globe-trotting, I got my first bag bug – I couldn’t really pull off the women’s Peekaboo with conviction.
The next season meant I secured another one, although I did bypass the first menswear accessories. Buyer’s remorse, lesson learnt. After that came the next collection and I was thrilled to see a monster Peekaboo for men. FINALLY! Yet when I held one in store, it just didn’t sit right with me, I loved it, but already own so many big bags. I therefore decided to let it go, so someone else could give it a loving home. Or sell it on eBay, but whatevs.
When I first laid eyes on the monster backpacks, I knew I had to have one. Alas they sold out immediately, even Fendi couldn’t secure me one. I accepted defeat and got a cute-as-hell SS15 monster wallet from Colette. It certainly wasn’t settling, just a nice addition to my collection.
Since writing the post about creating one’s own reality I had been religiously telling myself I will get the backpack; envisioning myself with it – after all, I deserved one. Lo and behold, the opportunity to get one arose and in a colour I liked even more. Sure it may sound shallow and materialistic, but this is just an example. Happiness, love and serenity are also on my agenda FYI.
So I can now welcome a new addition to my Fendi monster family, a product of positive thinking. Long may it continue.
