On the morning of my birthday, I woke up to find the beautifully gift wrapped package above from John nestled next to me on my pillow. And inside, was this:
I don't know about you, but I personally think it's pretty damn beautiful. This is the wallet from Longchamp's newest collection, Balzane, and it also comes in black, dark green and red. The first time I saw this wallet displayed in the New Bond Street store, I think I gasped audibly - I thought it was the most beautiful wallet I'd seen, beating even the classic Mulberry continental wallet I'd been originally lusting after. Ladies and gentlemen, I fell in love. John saw me drooling over it and must have taken note, since weeks later, I was busy transferring all my loyalty cards over from my now retired Ted Baker model.
Sorry, TB - it was time for an upgrade.
I felt guilty about this extravagant gift, but then again ... not guilty enough to return it!
