i don't know where i got it from...i wasn't raised this way (my mom still swears that she saw a lv purse on QVC)...lol. none of my friends or family carry designer bags--nor do they understand why i do. i am so glad that i "accidently" found TPF. i think that you guys are great! what i especially love about this place is the way everyone "dotes" on everyone's bags. i mean, you have seen the speedy a thousand times---yet, everytime someone gets one, you all have such nice things to say. I love this place!!! i just thought i'd let you all know! o.k....now, everyone....say nice things about my new bag!!! Hee Hee!!
