One über-remarkable thing about the man in my life is how seriously he takes the Catholic values of humility and simplicity. He’s always mentioned how much he likes Pope Francis because of how simple he is and everything. Norman’s so cute and sweet like that. The way he stays true to the faith keeps me grounded. Truly, he’s my little piece of heaven.♥
Oh you should see how he reacts to name brands. I onced me tioned how much I wanted a certain Prada bag (I forgot which one), and he was like, “Yucks”. I told him I was starting to like Kate Spade, and he went on about how a political member who doesn’t do much, is a fan of the brand. I tell him about investments and quality, but he tells me that there are other sturdy alternatives as well. To put it short, he doesn’t follow brands, and it’s mostly because he doesn’t like them. At all.
I take his opinions into consideration, but I don’t let them stop me when I make my purchases. I was spending some time shopping online, when I decided to place an order for navy blue Tory Burch flats. Earlier today, they were out of size 6, so I decided to get olive instead.. but when I went back to the site a few hours later, the navy blue size 6 was restocked. I was talking to Norman then, so I asked him,
Do you think I should redo my order, or should I just trust the fact that God led me to the olive pair for a reason?
We had just discussed earlier about how he’s not he best person to ask about these things, right when I was telling him about how I wanted an Anne Klein satchel. In fact, I was almost ready to get scolded for buying Tory Burch anything, being that it’s branded. Behold, my hummy’s answer.. Hmmm buy both?? –Okay, that was unexpected, but of course, I’m not gonna do that.
The man in my life hates it when I talk about Prada, Vera Wang, Kate Spade (most especially), and other big brands. He hates branded with great passion.. but for some reason, he’s tolerant of Tory Burch. Therefore, I shall silently refer to him as..
By the way, he reacts to Nine West adversely as well. I checked.
