Style Remix: Dior Bag

I was always someone who trusted people blindly.
Always the gullible one. One who would believe anything & anybody.

My mom has been chiding me for this trait of mine ever since I remember.
According to her:
Cause - I'm stupid
Fact - I'm gullible
Effect - I get cheated/fooled/tricked/hoodwinked

Over the years, with all kinds of experiences I had to face thanks to my trusting instincts, I have sobered up quite a bit. Till the beginning of the year, I used to think that things are better now. I can recognise the cheats for who they are & I'm not such an easy target any more. 

But, I guess, I was wrong! :(

It's not only from the people you don't know or strangers that you have to save yourself from. One has to trust selectively even when it comes to our own acquaintances!
And then again, there are times when you put blind faith on someone to get something done....and things end in a mess, coz you had not got it done yourself, but depended upon someone else for it. Maybe that other person had no intention of messing things up, but he/she was not to be given the responsibility of your trust.
In the past 5 months (and a few days), quite a few things in my life got screwed up just because I trusted in someone else to carry out some actions for me. People whom I thought to be (more) responsible, made mistakes which cost me loads of money, pain, headache & stress! 
So, another lesson learnt from the great teacher called Life: Do not, I repeat, do not trust/depend on anyone else to make things right for you. If you need something done, go out & do it yourself. You are the only one who knows what's best for you, no one else is to be trusted to have that knowledge!!!

Of course, I emerged on the other side of these experiences - stronger, smarter & wiser. :)

I had scored this look-alike Lady Dior in purple on one my trips to Bangalore. I got this at 0.0001% of the price of the original classic from the house of Dior.....but then, obviously, I have to rob a bank if I want to buy the real one, so this knockoff makes me feel 'Lady' enough and stops me from being a criminal! #win ;)

I have taken this beauty out on numerous dates and  though of sharing some of the many ways you can style this bag. As you can see, even though it's a very stark hue like purple, still I didn't have much difficulty wearing it with all types of colors!

Which is your favorite look? Do let me know!!!
