The Perfect Birthday Present : Sophie Hulme Mini Box Tote

I am a kind of person to whom obsession is a disease. When I first saw Sophie Hulme's tote bags on Instagram, I immediately knew that my new obsession had begun. My boyfriend, who knows very well the rather destructive relationship between me and my obsessions decided that he would get me an early birthday present--after all, my birthday is in January, and I was going to be in Korea with my parents then, so between an early birthday present and a late birthday present, he decided that an early one would allow me to enjoy it more, especially while I am in Korea. 

I was at first a little bit worried about the size of this Sophie Hulme Mini Box Tote. As I tend to carry my huge chunky DSLR around when I am not wearing my yoga pants, I wanted something that will at least fit my DSLR and my iPhone. To my surprise, my DSLR does fit this Sophie Hulme Mini Box Tote, but I end up with no space for my iPhone. Because this mini tote is very solidly structured, it does fit everything else though--I put in my wallet, iPhone, foundation, blush, eyeshadow palette, lipstick, and lipgloss, and still have room to fit another wallet or two to the point that it feels almost magical! Plus, the camel color is perfect for every outfit, and that whistle keychain is just way too perfect (especially since I live so close to the ghetto).

Anyhow, on this day I was bubbling with happiness that I had to go out for a photoshoot! The weather was surprisingly warm, although it was drizzling from time to time. I put on a cropped sweater with Rolling Stones print from Forever21, and my floral lace skirt that I purchased a year ago and still with the tag in the back (the more I blog, the more I realize that I have a stash of clothing that are completely new and unworn). I wore my rain boots from Coach that have a beautiful lace-up bow detail in the back for a custom fit around the calves. On top of this all-black outfit, I put on my Sophie Hulme Mini Box Tote, just to give it a bit of love. 

Usually obsessions end with possession, but with Sophie Hulme Mini Box Tote, I think my obsession grew a little bit more as I am craving her entire collection!
