to your bags? I'll admit...I stress about money (that's just me. I'm frugal and sometimes I enjoy it. It's almost a thrill to say "well I got the same thing for 1/2 price). My husband just recently landed a really good paying job...close double what he was making at his old job. I'm a thrifty person, my Ali will be my second Coach bag and I got both on eBay. I sold my other bag when I was done with it. Anyway...I've had some friends make comments like "I'd never spend that much on a bag" or "must be nice" etc. True...$200+ on a handbag is a lot but you know I rarely spend money on myself and this is my thing. I know woman would spend HUNDREDS on clothes or shoes or scrapbooking stuff. For one friend it was nothing to put up $300 for a camera. I mean to each their own you know. This is my thing. I just wish people would quit acting like I'm being snobby. I LOVE purses, designer or otherwise. I love New York & Co bags, Target stuff, Old Navy etc. I by no means use it as a status symbol. I just feel judged I guess...like they think I'm spoiled and that's far from true. I shouldn't worry about it but it just annoys me a little because I'm so not like that you know, I don't have to have name brands it just so happens that my tastes end up being expensive lol.
