I'll admit it: Since joining this forum, my handbag standards have been raised significantly. There were a few bags in my closet that no longer measured up, so I got rid of them... I had a cognac colored Furla but after all of the Hermes Birkin talk, I could no longer look at it because it reminded me of a wannabe-Birkin. I had a black Lancel Paris handbag because that I just sold because it reminds me of an LV Epi-leather Alma. I don't want to be reminded of LV, I want the real thing. They just didn't appeal to me anymore. :shame: Am I the only one cleaning out my closet?
