You guys won't remember me (I'm sure thousands of people here register everyday!) but I introduced myself in that other thread as that refugee worker who travelled for 10 years doing her share in "making this world a better place" (Did I mention that I'm 33?). I belonged to that group that imagines how many children in Asia and Africa can be fed with just 1 limited edition LV purse. Anyway, I got married and settled here in Rio de Janeiro. It's a wonderful place where the sun always shines! I've been a member for almost a month now. I stumbled into the site when I was looking for a gift for his grandmother. I guess what I really want to say is that this site has helped me understand a bit about how others feel about these expensive purses. You see, I married into a traditional family here and I couldn't understand how women can be so proud of saying that they've never worked in their lives and live comfortably in their beach front apartments. I even feel confident in writing this coz his family's foreign language is french and not English. Although my father-in-law speaks 7 languages, nice huh? Thank you so much. You guys are doing a wonderful thing here. Cheers! It's almost winter here. Jennifer P.S. Guess what? I entered the LV shop near my apartment and am thinking of buying one for me, is that ridiculous?
