"MAY I BORROW?" What do you tell people when they want to borrow your Louis? I don't mean to sound selfish but..... nobody will care for your bag like you do. Do you tell them, "I don't loan out my bags...... or This was a gift so....... or I had a bad experience once..... or I am not comfortable...." I also don't like to loan out my clothes. It is just something I have always felt because, like the handbags, nobody will treat your possessions like you do. And it is always the favorite things that people ask you for. Right? The dress that is special, or the skirt that you got when you were on vacation, or the blouse that your DH got you for your birthday. How do you say "NO" without causing hurt feelings? I work hard to save for my handbags and I treat them with such care. What would you say when the bag gets returned to you with a stain? You would have to say ,"Don't worry, no problem." And then go away and cry your eyes out. You can't really tell them that they have to get you a new bag..... Right?
