Ok lovely ladies...here I am with a nervous twitching finger on the buy it now for my first Bbag, a GSH 2009 Black City.....(sorry to the gold girls, I'm strictly silver :smile:

So...I have Kooba, Marc Jacobs, and Chloe, but have NEVER spent more than $450 on a bag...so this is a HUGE leap for me.

Fortunate for me my DH doesn't even look at the checking account, and if we squared off, he's in to me for about $200k, so I don't feel guilty (ok, well, yes I do, there's homeless people on the streets and I'm going to spend $1,500 on a handbag???)

The good thing is that I know buying a bag like this, is that it will hold it's value, so I can sell it later and it would be a better investment than buying a car, but still...???

BUT I LOVE THIS BAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :drool:
AND I DESERVE IT!!!! (That makes it OK, right??? :smile:

I could never talk to my friends about this, I'm from and worked in mid-sized towns, so they all think Coach is 'High End Designer', and would have a heart attack if I told them I spent over $200 on a bag.

I'm in desperate need of help here girls..HELP!! :sos:

TIA for your thoughts!!!!!

If enabling is what you want, then you've come to the right place!:graucho:

But seriously, if it's going to be a guilt-inducing purchase, then you should skip it. No need to loose sleep over a handbag! But I do think bbags are a good purchase and certainly do hold their value. I know bags have sold for even more than they were purchased.

FIRST OF ALL IT IS SOOOOO GOOD TO KNOW THERE'S SOMEONE OUT THERE IN MY AREA!!!!!!!!!! YIPPPPEEEYYY, YAAAAHHHHH!!!!:yahoo:
AND I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT ALL THE "COACH".:Push: DON'T MEAN TO OFFEND ANYONE! I HAVE BEEN ADDICTED TO BALS NOW FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS. ONCE YOU START, YOU CAN'T STOP. I WOULD NOT FEEL GUILTY ABOUT SPENDING YOUR OWN MONEY ON A HANDBAG. AND HONESTLY I DON'T BELIEVE ANYONE KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE. AT LEAST NOT HERE! I SHOP AT INTERNATIONAL AND I HAVE ONLY SEEN 2 IN THE MALL. WHEN I DO GET COMPLIMENTS ON MINE, I KNOW THEY DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT BRAND IT IS.
I SAY GO BUY THE BAG YOU WANT AND ENJOY IT!:tup: AND DON'T FORGET TO POST SOME PICS WHEN YOU DO!;)

Think of it this way.... It will make you happy and you just can't put a price on that. And if you don't sell it, it will certainly last you forever.

Well, I wouldn't feel guilty for more than a day or two..so I think that wouldn't be an issue...lol..

I'm torn, because it really is a big time luxury (Ok, not a $50k Hermes), but still a splurge that's not a necessity.

And probably only 1 in a 200 that see me will know what it is, but that makes me like even more :smile:

But does anyone else go through this?
What are some other first time BBag buyers emotional experiences???

I think if you like it and can afford it then get it. You won't regret it :smile: but keep in mind that once you spend that first $1650+tax, you are hooked for good and the next purchases won't be as hard as this one.

Yeah, that's been the problem, I only new Coach years ago, then moved up to MBMJ, then MJ, then Chloe, and it got easier and easier to spend more...


But I promise to be a good girl forever and keep my BBag for a very long time and love her dearly and get all my money's worth out of her!!!

Ohhhh!!! I'm almost there!!!! BUY IT NOW!! GOTTA DO IT!!!
:upsidedown: This is almost as good as s*x!!! LOL!!!!
