It’s back to haunt me. Because Net-A-Porter is offering free shipping on all orders till 20 October (just enter FREESHIP2 in the promo box upon checkout), I decided to take a look and see what was available. It was not long before I chanced upon this, the Bottega Veneta Canvas Shopper in Black which I’ve really wanted since the day I saw it a long time ago. Measuring 44 cm by 29 cm, I reasoned that it would be big enough for work or play, and the colour would be so easy to match.
Add all that together, plus the fact that I would save over SGD100 on shipping, I plucked out my plastic and proceeded to purchase. The bag itself would only cost only SGD1075 or so, a good deal for any Bottega Veneta piece, even if it was just entry-level. The transaction went through and then the doubts began to set in.
I was supposed to be saving up for a huge Louis Vuitton purchase, so what I am doing mucking around with this? I also had other debts to settle, and making random impluse buys was not in the plan. I had to focus, I had to stick to my plan, and so I chickened out. I wrote in to cancel the order almost immediately, but in my heart I know one day I will get it, free shipping or not.
