On Life and Love.

It's hard for me to let go.

I always find myself in this predicament. I know when it's time to move on to something better, something more worthwhile. However, even when things are falling apart at the seams, I still frantically try to save whatever has been lost because I can't just give up on something that I've invested so much time and money and memories into. I can't help it. I'm loyal. I'll stay true and try my best to make it work and make everything okay. Sometimes, it's them. They start drifting further and further away and everything falls to pieces, and with it -- my heart. Sometimes it is me; it's my fault. Sometimes my interest fades and I find myself wishing for something else which will truly just let me be who I am. Regardless, it's never the same, and whatever we had is lost. Something between us has changed and our relationship with each other is doomed to never be what it once was. You would think it would become easier to say goodbye after the same thing happens time and again, over and over, but still -- I just can't forget.

My first true love lasted for about a year and half. We met at the Buffalo Exchange on La Brea and from that moment on, we were inseparable. We went everywhere together -- to parties, to shows, we even went on a tour through Europe! My beloved was broad and white, and even after our time together was through, I knew that I was hooked and would forever compare any future indulgences to it.

Unsurprisingly, my next handbag (what'd you think I've been talking about?) which is also my current, is rather similar to the first -- big, white, and structured with a minimal amount of gold-toned hardware. Alas, after about another year and a half of constant wear and tear, it seems to be going to way of my first.

Basically, I'm in need of a new bag for my regular, everyday use. It's just that I've been having a bit of trouble trying to find one that I like and that fits my needs/preferences. I've been thinking about something Zac Posen Aurora Frame bag-esque or something reminiscent of YSL's new Majorelle bag -- in white, of course. They both appeal to my big/structured/minimal gold hardware specifications, but still, I'm unsure. Sometimes it's just so hard to commit, you know?

Has anyone else seen un sac that might possibly pique my interest and allow me move on to something new?

Sleepy: Boys, bags, whatevs!

The Zac Posen bag was the one I discovered first, but then I came across the YSL one and became somewhat torn, haha.
