I've been waiting to buy a new black bag for quite some time. I was eyeing the Alexander Wang Diego bag for as long as I can remember so I decided when I went to Hong Kong that I would finally make the purchase there. Since I have been to Hong Kong before I knew that it's the kind of city where there is every kind of store and designer imaginable so I clearly thought I would have no issue getting the Deigo bag there. So wrong.
I walked into Lane Crawford (department store similar to Barney's or Holt's) and was so excited to make my purchase
"Do you have the Wang Diego bag in black?"-me
"That bag is last season. We do not carry last season"-sales associate
The girl actually looked at me as if I had 3 heads. Like, what kind of question is that? And not even in a snobby way...more in a "i'm confused that your asking this" kind of way.
Anyways, when I got home and did some thinking, i realized that Hong Kong not having the bag was kind of meant to be. Not that I don't still love it..because I do ( and I will accept Diego donations if anyone is willing), but I decided to get a bag that was a little more classic.
Hello Mulberry Over-Sized Alexa bag. Goodbye hole-y, broken BCBG bag.
