I don't know if you remember awhile ago when I was full of regret for not purchasing this cat tapestry bag on my trip to Prague — well I do. I was bummed, but it was when I hadn't yet adjusted to the high thrift/vintage (even though this bag isn't) prices of Berlin (even though everything else is cheaper here), and wasn't willing to spend 20 euros on anything so silly....yet amazing. I know that sounds weird, but I am a bargain thrift hunter. I regretted being such a cheapskate, especially when I found it on ebay after for twice the price. I did however find a tote in Berlin in the same print, but the straps were really short, so after awhile I decided to turn it into a pillow — which you can see in the background there on my messy couch next to my big cat poster thing. What is wrong with me? Maybe it is because my boyfriend is allergic to cats so I am making up for not being able to get a real one or maybe it's just an everlasting obsession with that Miu Miu line.
Anyway, the other day I was riding my bike in a Berlin neighborhood I had never been to and there was my cat bag in the window of a little Asian market purring at me. But being the idiot I am, I still didn't buy it, and regretted it once again. Doh. Finally, I decided to buy myself a little Thanksgiving away from home present and get the damn bag already. Now I just have to see if I can actually pull it off outside of my living room.
