scarf no more

last Monday, i realized when i stepped out of the shower from the gym that the scarf that's been tied on to my Coach hobo bag is missing. my immediate reaction was, "again!?!" yes, it's the second time this has happened :(

the first time i lost a scarf was, i could only presume, from the Emirates Towers walking back to my office building when i had after office drinks with my colleagues. when i got back to the car, the scarf was no longer tied onto my bag. that's the problem when you use a silk scarf. the fabric is so smooth it just loosens by itself and then next thing you know, alas, it's already gone! the recent mishap probably happened when we went grocery shopping the night before we hit the gym. i suddenly remembered it was no longer there when i put my bag down at the couch. i was probably too tired and preoccupied with the groceries that night so i didn't notice it was missing right there and then.

what made me feel sad about those two scarves was that both had sentimental value to me. the first was because it was purchased the first time i stepped into a Coach store here in Dubai. i was prodded by my friend at work, H, to buy it as it was on sale. i still remember how giddy happy i was because i've always wanted a scarf for my hobo so it'll have a different look compared to other hobo bags carried by other girls. the second one i got from the States when i traveled there last Spring. i got it from an outlet store next to the Mexican border, and it was the perfect shade that would contrast my bag. i luv it! it was also the last piece so i literally grabbed it and paid for it immediately. and of course, i only got it real cheap. of all the things i shopped for, that was my second favorite - next to my Pochette. and now, it's gone, as well. haaayy!! i should've put a pin on the scarf to secure it. i never learned my lesson!

anyway, when i told hubby about my sad (but totally shallow) news, he told me to just get a new one, and then make sure to keep it tied firmly and fasten it with a safety pin to secure its hold. i've yet to visit a Coach store here to see whether they have the color and pattern that would match my bag. i kidded Ryan by telling him that perhaps i should get a new bag to get over my loss, but was surprised to hear him say that i should :D so tonight, we'll be hitting the mall and find me a new bag so that i'd stop blabbering about my lost scarf. i guess hubby's ears have gone bleeding already from my endless rants! hehe!

hi there! bloghopping lang from tracy and mandy's blogs :) former 2W@wie and n@wie din ako....napaka ganda naman ng timing ng entry mo na to, cos i lost a coach scarf din, this week ko lang napansin! ako naman we did some spring cleaning sa house in time for our baby's arrival (as I'm due anytime) and natapon ko yung box niya pati yung laman! (masyado kasing magaan i think i thought empty siya)...haaay, di ko pa naman nagagamit!!! waaaah!

anyhow, maybe you might want to go to the LV site yata, i think doon ko nakita may demo/tutorial on how to tie scarves....baka mas mahigpit siya para next time di siya maglo-loosen mag isa esp. since silk nga siya :)

hi tinggay,
welcome to my zany world! :)
hay nak, i just decided to let go na nga lang, tutal may kapalit naman yun eh. but i still plan on getting a scarf for my dear bag. maybe on my next trip na lang sa US 'cos mas maraming choices dun. dito kse Coach Stores offer limited pieces lang. and thanks for the tip! i'll visit LV in a while.
take care & hope you'll have an easy delivery.
