"Poor and not worthy" in what way?
I'm confused about this thread? What's going on?
OP deleted her question and now my reply makes no sense at all!
I think most people have the money to buy a Birkin or Kelly. The big questions is if they WANT to spend that amount on a purse. Its a pretty big step in that sense.
Lucci, you are so right!!!! This is what I try to explain to my freinds!
I guess this may be a touchy subject to bring up for some and so the original post was edited to nothing....I don't exactly pinch pennies but I make sure I work hard and earn the money to afford my own expensive habit. I don't squander away the family jewels or break the bank just to indulge my own Hermes habit, and I make sure I remember those less fortunate than I am by helping out in charities, the RSPCA etc to give back to society in the way I can.
oh, now i wish i could see the original post. i don't want to just reply to a subject line.
I will. I only buy when I comfortably have the spare money to do so. I would never pinch pennies to buy myself what I consider a luxury, especially with a husband and two very small children to be responsible for. When I was in my 20's, I would have felt differently, but I had no responsibilities as such then.
I couldn't happily wear my Hermes things if I was in debt, or pinching pennies.
I have to pinch pennies :shame: But then again I'm 22 with no responsibilities right now, like GF said, I think it depends on where in life you are currently as to how you save up for your bag purchases. I sure as hell wouldn't be buying Hermes if it was bank-breaking and I had to make huge sacrifices to do it. It would not only be irresponsible and immature, but wow the guilt I would feel. I already feel kinda guilty as is, knowing that my parent's would never approve of a $6,000 bag, even though I know their money just goes to a different place then mine does right now, like that equal amount but on antiques and such. Plus my parents are pretty reasonable people in the first place; my Dad has the funds for the luxury car of his choice, but I don't think he'd ever buy one, lol, he's a southern gentleman pure and simple and loves his big diesal trucks I don't think I could ever picture him in a Mercedes or something, I think he'd be too annoyed at the fact that his Indiana-Jones style hats would get squashed against the roof of the car!
Man I'm rambling again...I'm really bad about that tonight...
Oooh... your dad sounds................ handsome....
Neeya, my DH STILL doesn't approve of a 6K bag - LOL! But, they get used to it....beats the hell out of the whinging he would have to endure.
Serenity Now: lol!!! My daddy still gets hit-on by women...my mom's friends too He's the essence of pure southern gentleman, always opens the car door for me, always seats ladies, always stands when a woman leaves the table, he's such a charmer The doting father and the major Daddy's girl I wish I could get my boyfriend to do all that stuff, lol!
GF: My boyfriend as accepted it, but does he approve of it...noooooo, lol! But he's supporting my habits, so I can't complain!
He gets even better by the minute! What a sweet, dear fellow your dad is! Can someone fall in love with a description??? I think I can! LOL!
SUE! He's married!!
