LOL. DWI - drivelling while intoxicated.Sorry. Obviously, I should not drink and drivel. Yes, I bought a croc bag that is not Hermes and I am agonizing about whether to return it or take it on the icky summer travels to destinations involving critical extended family and grease, thereby sparing the H bags I love from filth and scorn, but subjecting me to a non-H existence.
It depends how much you like or dislike the bag, aside from the H snobbery/cachet. If you like the bag purely on its own terms keep it but if you merely bought it because it was croc and dislike it otherwise, return it.
For extended family and grease and other grotty stuff, I usually use correspondingly grotty bags and clothes. I am bi-polar. Super dressed up or super dog-ified, depending on the circumstance. No point being a total glam queen at a clambake, I think.
