Funny Bags

Nu stiu daca sa ma bucur (ca inca il regasesc pe copilul din mine – care probabil se da huta pe circumvolutiuni) sau sa ma ingrijorez (ca e un semn de retard mintal), cert e ca la cei aproape 34 de ani ai mei, de fiecare data cand vad cate o geanta haioasa, cu animalute, ganganii, shobaltrobolibozauri*, fructe etc. (*cuvant inventat de tata, cand eram mica, care desemneaza un fel de dinozaur cu buline), simt negresit acel gol in stomac premergator gestului de apasare a butonului “adauga in cosul de cumparaturi”.

De multe ori reusesc din fericire sa ma controlez, gandindu-ma ca “unde o sa port eu asa ceva?” (sunt acea persoana plicticoasa care poarta in fiecare zi aceeasi geanta bej vara si aceeasi geanta neagra iarna)… dar alteori nu, asa ca deocamdata sunt mandra posesoare a unui plic cu urechiuse de liliac si mi l-am comandat pe cel in forma de portocala de mai jos, iar lista de tentatii tot creste:

EN: Even though I’m almost 34, the child in me seems to be alive and kicking (hard!), because the first thing on my mind whenever a spot one of these novelty bags (especially if it has ears! Ears are cute!) usually is I. WANT. IT. SO. BAD!

Many a time I fortunately manage to control my enthusiasm: for one thing, my storage space situation is pretty desperate (my husband and I are on the brink of being drowned in a sea of dresses, my pantry and my balcony are filled with shoes and I keep the shoe polish in the kitchen cabinets…) and for another, it’s not like I’d actually get to wear these bags: I’m the kind of boring bag person that wears the same (huge) beige handbag all summer long and the same (huge) black handbag all winter long. Sometimes however the urge is just too damn strong! So far I’ve given in to a clutch with bat ears and the orange-shaped one below, but temptation keeps rearing its ugly head:

1.

racoon raccoon shaped bag and owl shaped bag purse messenger crossbody bag accessorize  Raccoon crossbody bag and owl messenger bag from Accessorize – £25 here and £22 here; (there’s also an owl backpack and a badger backpack);
Geanta raton si bufnita de la Accessorize – £25 (aprox. 142 lei) aici si £22 (aprox. 125 lei) aici.

(Probabil exista si in magazinele din Romania, dar de cand l-au inchis pe cel din Unirea – booo! -, nu prea mai sunt la curent cu ce ajunge si ce nu din colectii la noi).

Cum poti sa rezisti unei genti cu raton languros (si codita & urechiuse), CUM???

EN: Do you understand my torment now? How is one supposed to resist the allure of a languorous raccoon, with its cute little tale and ears, HOW?!?

2.

pink and black lips bag clutch and orange fruit shaped clutch bagAsos pink and black lips bag – £18 here and here – and New Look orange fruit-shaped clutch – £9,99 here.
Geanta in forma de buze, roz si neagra – £18 (aprox. 100 lei) aici si aici – si in forma de portocala (New Look) – £9,99 (aprox. 57 lei) aici.

(Plicul in forma de portocala s-a strecurat intr-o comanda de la Asos dupa de am vazut-o pe The Cherry Blossom Girl purtand unul similar, in forma de lamaie.

EN: The orange-shaped clutch sneaked into my Asos shopping basket after I saw The Cherry Blossom Girl wearing a similar lemon-shaped one.)

3.

camera shaped bag purse handbag messenger crossbody bag accessorizeAccessorize camera-shaped bag – £29 here;
Geanta in forma de aparat foto (Accessorize) – £29 (aprox. 165 lei) aici.

O geanta in forma de camera foto este clar ceva care lipseste din viata mea! (ca sa nu mai zic ca numai un blogger vai de capul lui ar putea sa nu aiba una. Jenant!) Mi-as fi cumparat-o demult daca o gaseam in magazinul din Sun Plaza, dar asa, avand in vedere ca trebuie sa platesc si livrarea (si ca probabil n-o s-o port niciodata), ma roade (deocamdata) constiinta…

EN: I’ve been lusting after this bag for months now (for what (blogger’s) life can ever be complete, I ask you, without a camera shaped-bag?!?), but the fact that I’ll probably never wear it in “real life” and that it costs as much as a dress have so far managed to keep me from clicking the “add to bag” button. So far!
