FAIL

I am a failure when it comes to shopping bans. I decided today to forever ban shopping bans from my life. This past weekend, I silently went on a shopping ban. I told myself to be good for the rest of the year. I told myself to get something nice for my birthday and maybe a few deals during sale season but nothing else. Well, with Chanel Cruise 2010 hitting stores next month (at this point, it would be in my interest if it hit in early Dec instead of Nov...), that plan has officially gone out the window. One word to describe Chanel Cruise 2010: POW! I had seen the look book back in August when I was picking up my Maxi but those pictures are always so tiny. I finally saw some of the trunk show pictures today and ZOMG, I nearly died. THE COLORS, ITS ALL ABOUT THE WONDERFUL, VIBRANT COLORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The blue...I cannot write/gush/say enough about the blue. I dont even care if I have yet to use my Fall 09 Navy Maxi, I'm getting my hands on the Cruise '10 Bleu Roi, so help me God. To make matters worse, the Cruise '10 red is also delicious. It will also be available in patent. I DIE!!! I'm hoping I wont like the red in person...since my ideal red is the deep Fall 09 red, please let it be the bright red that everyone else loves! If that ends up being the case, I'll be safe with just getting the Bleu Roi :) If I end up liking the red as well...I'm screwed. '10C will also have a yellow. Most people are saying its a bit too bright but from pictures, it looks preeeeettty. However, I must focus on my priorities: BLUE AND RED...then green, teal, yellow, fuschia, purple!!

On top of the Chanel madness, Balenciaga Spring 2010 is also scheduled to hit boutiques next month. Again, ITS ALL ABOUT THE COLORS. I can't even decide which colors I want. I know I want another Twiggy but I've also been playing around with getting something a bit bigger. If I do end up getting the Bleu Roi, I think I'll probably go with something in the green family from Bal.

LET THE SA STALKING BEGIN!!! Stopping by SCP is my top priority this weekend :)

The one good thing?? As of today, I am okay with the shoes. Buuuut, knowing me...that'll probably change within a week. I've been holding out on posting my new shoe purchases because I keep meaning to do one ginormous collection post. I'm having issues with finding time to take pictures but I'll try my bestest to get this post in ASAP :)

I love colorfull chanel handbags!! they are so fun! and they look more "youthfull" and less "grandma" you know?

LOL..yea, I do. I remember growing up, I always associated Chanel flaps with old ladies. Then in 07, I tried on a Jumbo flap and fell hard. The colors definitely help but honestly, nowadays, I dont even think the black with gold is very "grandmotherly"

I totally get it that you want the blue roi even you just got the navy one! and I actually think it's ok that you want another blue! these two are really different as for the color and the HW...I was just thinking to get both(navy and blue)...and it comes from a person who said she'll never consider the flap:P well actually, no jumbo flap anymore, but I want to get the medium flap since the jumbo looks too boxy on me!

Hi Thavasa! Yah, I'm pretty much determined to get the new blue. I figured the navy can be my "classic" more and the bleu roi can be my "fun" blue :) I also want red...but I might wait on it since I want a deeper shade of red than the one thats coming out for Cruise. Sigh. it never ends...from the sound of it...'10S/S is also going to have pretty colors...
