Since I have joined this forum my taste in handbags has gotten a little more extravigant. I purchased a Gucci tote bag last month but now I am still wanting to get a Louis Vuitton. I look at them on the website everyday and I also go into the stores and try them on. The problem I have is the cost. When I purchased my Gucci I was in complete denial of the cost. I don't think that I really looked at the receipt. So I guess my question is was it hard for you to make your first Vuitton purchase? I was strictly into Coach and a couple of years ago I would not buy one that was over $200. So am I cheap or what?
