I can never understand when my best friend spends tons of money on Marc Jacobs, YSL, LV etc etc, only to hoard them safely in her wardrobe. My MJ, BV and LVs etc are used to death..afterall, why buy them just to keep them But in the very same breath, I feel totally protective over my Toki bags! I lurve the original print. Being a late adopter, I'd to scour the local auctions just to acquire a brand new authentic Bella, and 2nd hand ciao. Needless to say, I will never get pass the stage of bella out of the packaging for more than 10min, much even less dream of using it! Maybe the used ciao has a better chance, since it's been used..... The only one I'm using is my Cita BV....and it was by no means an easy process which spanned 3 mths! and taken in baby steps, like cutting the tag, and then putting it back to the packaging for more weeks before finally crossing the line! So let me know what the rest of you do with your bags?
