I agree with baglady wholeheartedly. Although DC is pretty conservative, my office is pretty casual unless we have major donors coming in (we are a non-profit). People tend to wear jeans in the office - most people in my office are under 30. Although I have some nicer bags, I usually wear something less "high-end designer" - like my Longchamp or Kate Spade totes. Most people in the office barely make a liveable wage (for the DC Metro area), but work there for the "cause". Also, most of my colleagues are guys straight out of college, so they probably wouldn't know the difference between Coach and Fendi. Anyway, I agree with baglady in that I don't want to chance my "well-paid" superiors thinking that I don't need a promotion....I am saving to buy my first place (and the occassional bag).baglady said:Like I mentioned in a previous thread, I would not dare bring my Gucci or LV bags to work. One look at those bags and my boss would think I don't need a pay raise or promotion.
