why are expensive handbags such a taboo? it's ok for a guy to spend tons of money on a car, but a girl can't spend a grand on a bag? it's fine to throw all your money away at booze and partying, but it's not ok for a chanel? i always have to defend my bag purchases. and i tend not to divulge lots of information to anyone, sometimes not even to my closest friends just because i know they don't understand. everyone has their own obsession. my best friend is obsessed with sex. she calls me the bag lady. i call her the sex lady. just to get my point across. then she says, "yeah that's true." are bags considered that frivolous? i think before this it used to be taboo shoes. but people got used to it, right? especially since sex and the city. thoughts, anyone?
