Instagram is definitely bad for my bank account. Once I start seeing something I like all over Instagram, the need to own it becomes more and more intense. This bag was one of those items.
It’s what I like to call ‘the Zara bag of summer 2017 dreams’. And EVERYONE seems to have it, or thats what it looked like to me on Instagram. I kept telling myself I didn’t need it, but the more I saw it popping up, the more I wanted it.
Naturally as soon as I decided, right I need this bag in my life, it was out of stock. And none of the stores near to me had it in stock.
I officially resigned myself to missing out on this dreamy bag.
Coat – Matalan (old) | Top – H&M | Jeans – New Look | Shoes – Primark
Bag – Zara | Earrings – ASOS (old) | Necklace – H&M
But then one day when sitting in the doctors waiting room (random but true) I was scrolling on Twitter and someone I follow had posted that the bag was back in stock (annoyingly I can’t remember who tweeted it but thank you to whoever it was!)
I then frantically sat in the waiting room trying to order the bag but my phone signal was so bad that the pages wouldn’t load and I could never get to the checkout.
My appointment ended up being almost 50 minutes late so I sat there panicking that it would go out of stock before I could buy it. That’s what the desperation to buy a must-have fashion item clearly does to me these days.
As soon as I got out of the doctors I sat in my car and finally put my order through. I was so chuffed that it would finally be mine, definitely saved from the regret of not buying it beforehand!
The Instagram bag FOMO was very real but luckily for me, this time I was able to snap up this beauty!
