My New Toy - Olympus PEN & Lace Strap

Here's SC, attaching a pretty lacey strap on my new toy...
New Toy & Lace Strap - Olympus PEN

Hello, gorgeous!
New Toy & Lace Strap - Olympus PEN
Why the heck do I need another camera? Why did I choose Olympus PEN?

Here are my lame excuses:
1. The Canon 7D gets too heavy for preggo me, I get back pain from the weight and hardly carry it out if SC's not with me
2. Imagine after lil' SC's born...there will be a baby, a huge diaper bag, a stroller, etc etc etc...I don't think I can manage carrying lil' 7D
3. My Canon IXUS890IS is severely outdated, I can't even adjust white balance ;) and I need something that produces pictures of near DSLR quality...
4. Why not Panasonic Lumix GF1? It's much more expensive, out of my budget, with the same price, I could get this one with an extra lens
5. Why not Sony NEX5? I can't get over how fugly it looks on me (high tech look doesn't suit me ^_*)
6. I just want it. It's white, and super cute :p

...and that's that ^_^

It is super cute, and I LOVE the lace strap. I've been wanting to get a really pretty camera strap for my rebel.

Any prize for guessing right? :D I want to get one too but i need to come up with a good excuse to convince my KS. :)

Btw, I really really love that lace strap of yours. Where and how much did you pay for it??
