As you may have seen on Instagram, it was my birthday on friday. I had two days filled of friends, family, yummy food and crazy gifts (I even got a My Little Pony!). My boyfriend is known as the best gift-giver (like the Cinderella DVD paired with a chocolate mule for our first anniversary). He struggled with a gift this year because I didn’t know what I wanted. I feel like I already own everything I need and if I truly want something, I can get it myself. We decided to go to the Mc Arthur Glen Designer Outlet Roermond on thursday. We both like luxury brands, but with a students budget we can’t always afford it. That’s why we love outlets. We visited one in Sicily a year ago and that is our absolute favorite.
But on to my present – my absolute favourite luxury brand is Gucci. Maybe because it is an Italian brand, maybe because their products are hyped but I just love Gucci’s style. We entered the store and spent about an hour in there. The shoes and clothes didn’t really caught my eye (I’m not asking for a €500-, sweater for my birthday!), but when we arrived in the bag section.. I fell in love.
When I buy designer-items, I always keep a few things in mind. Like the price – I can’t afford one item every month because my college tuition is already €200-, a month. I don’t want to buy anything too flashy – I want to imagine myself still wearing that piece at age 60. And I need to really want it. I don’t want to make mistakes while buying luxury items. It would be such a shame if you spent so much money on one item and you leave it in your closet.
To make a long story short – my boyfriend bought me my first Gucci bag for my birthday. It is such a big gift and I’m so thankful for him. He doesn’t have to, but he always treats me like his princess. When I touched the bag for the first time, I knew it was love, I knew it had a huge price tag, he saw how happy the bag made me, so he bought it for me.
And here, my beauty! A simple, small, black bag with a shoulder-strap. Black bags are a staple and go well with any outfit. The bag is such good quality and i love the little ‘GG’ details all over.
You can see that it’s designer, but it is not in your face. I’m so in love with my present, you don’t even know. I’m so thankful for my boyfriend. These kind of gifts aren’t normal. He, is the biggest gift I ever received. I hope you liked reading this article and of course I hope you like my bag. What is your favourite designer?
