I live in a small town and purse parties are very, very common. My mom was telling me earlier in the year that a bunch of her lady-friends from work went to a purse party. She politely declined the invite. One lady in particular is a huge PITA got this really bad "MC Speedy" which is smaller than a 25 and bigger than a Mini HL. Lord knows what they were knocking off. Anyway, whenever I stop in to see my mom (she works at a hospital) and I run into this lady she claims that we are purse pals because we both love LV. Then she gets all overly touchy-feely-huggy. O-M-G. I am biting my tongue. It really has started to grate on me recently, but you guys know how these ppl are ... they have no idea. Ignorance is bliss. So anyway, here I am taking the higher road. If I ever get the chance, I will take a pic of the abomination. She paid like $50 for it too. I could have constructed a better knockoff out of Swiss cheese spliced w/ chalk and a beard. Okay, I'm done venting.
