Beside my fashion weakness.... I have my Techy Gadget Weakness. I am known to go to the other side of the Atlantic, looking for Uber cellphones. When Sony came out with tiny handheld Vaio PC, I had to get it. When iPhone came out, I procured mine that weekend.
So it is no surprise that I have been salivating over MacBook Air... since it first came out. So much so that I cut my time at the Bergdorf... going across the 5th Avenue to play with one of those thin, slick machines... among the hardcore geeks.
Well - The Search is Over. I have succumbed. I said "no" to the-drop-dead-beautiful emerald green silk Lanvin dress.... and yes to MacBook Air..... It's Easter - lent is over... the Spring has come!
Nobody with an once of fashion sense will settle with those PC laptop/notebooks. They are plain ugly.... even Sony Vaio looks flat boring sitting next to.... MacBook Air. Can you imagine one of those ugly Dell laptop emerging out of a lilac ostrich birkin?! No way.
Now that I think..... Apple, Lanvin, and Hermes are very similar in a way... Beautifully made products that are pieces of art. So I must buy their "art" just as some people donate $ to museums and ballet companies....
Now I feel better about my weakness.
