kojiko said:My Parents Money - My first designer bag was a Salvatore Ferragamo Pochette when I was 12 (Back then I didn't know it was valuable. So I used it as a pencil case, crayon, & elmer's glue case for school.) I still have it, it's smothered with glue & ink. It's alittle Fugly now (well not alittle, ALOT). I regret doing that... LOL The next one was when I was 14 it was a black lamb skin leather Chanel belt bag (back when my Mom was still working at Chanel). I was alittle more familiar with designer bags by this time, so I guess this was truely my first designer bag.
My Own Money - My first purchase with MY hard earned money was a Celine Alma in Black Monogram (it was on sale, original price was around $500 then, I got it for just $300!) and the LV Mono Pouchette. This was when I was 18. Sheesh just a year ago!(I'm 19).
