Oh wait… what’s that? I CAN’T AFFORD to buy a new computer OR replace my laptop screen?
Well that changes everything.
Back in mid-January the backlight went out on my Dell laptop just for no reason. I thought it’d be something cheap to repair. Replace a bulb or something simple… But it turns out I’ll have to replace the entire screen because it’s all one piece. Damn technology. I think I can get a new one for about $250… But for just $700 I could by one of the HP Vivienne Tam Digital Clutches. They’re super cute and only as big as my joke notebook. I know I can’t afford it, but I want one. (Yes I know the logic of spending an extra $450 for a new computer sounds dumb… but that’s because you haven’t SEEN it yet.
See? I was over at my girl Dana’s house and she was invited by HP and Vivienne Tam to come to NY Fashion Week and blog about the clutch — all expenses paid PLUS they gave her the clutch and I fell in love.
Now clearly, I’m not going to be able to buy this clutch, but I think they have them at a much more affordable price without the designer element… I could do a basic black or purple or yellow… and of course by “I could do” I mean, “I would accept as a gift for my 30-ONE-derful…”
Exhale. A girl can dream, right? One of these days… Enjoy the Grammy’s. SO much to blog about.
