Givenchy Antigona

H&M shirt, ZARA skirt (similar) and sandals (similar), GIVENCHY bag (here)

I always expect to feel monumentally different after a birthday- especially something as significant as eighteen. I always also never do, other than the worldy wisdom that I was suddenly imparted with on the day and the deep understanding of the universe that one, no doubt, gains in adulthood, I feel exactly the same. One thing that is different is a certain new addition to my life; the bag. I remember seeing this bag around when it first came out and thinking; my god, that is perfect. Of course the bank account of a teenager does not allow for 'my god, that is perfect' as a good enough excuse to blow all of my university savings on a very very pretty piece of leather. I sat tight and waited to discover I was the princess of a small european country/ win the lottery/ my eighteenth.
The latter came first and I made a wishlist, not expecting much since it is pretty steep in terms of pricing (although, my argument was that at least it wasn't a Chanel which is twice as expensive- not a great argument, according to the 'rents). Anyway, I wondered down to the kitchen on my birthday, half asleep because it was prom the night before (see pics of what I wore here) and I saw the biggest Net-A-Porter box I will ever see. It took real patience to finish my pancakes before diving head first into the box and cradling what I'm happy to say will be my first 'bag for life'. I'm still a little in shock, and I realise to some people it seems superfluous but I wholly believe in the idea of investment pieces and I look forward to wearing this bag in 30 years provided I don't do something stupid and ruin it.
Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and for all your sweetness, honestly you guys are the absolute bomb.

We're off to Danmark now, see you there!
