Can I bathe in them?
- Mar 31, 2007
I have loved bags since I was 7 years old and started by sewing my own leather pouch. I started out buying less expensive bags, $40 in 1985, then I remember my first "expensive" bag purchase - a leather bag for $100 in about 1989 for which I felt so guilty buying! Then one day I graduated, hyperventilating, at a $200 purchase. I bought several over the next year or 2, then gradually got to $500, $600...... I crept my way up to Botkier & Kooba which I still love but never carry any more, and then Louis Vuitton and Chanel. I look upon $200 bags with disdain. This sounds horrible. I love TJ Maxx for its $6 shirts, inexpensive shoes, and cheap hair products. But I admit, I am a luxury bag addict. I really don't care how much a bag costs - I have purchased an LV or Balenziaga from Japan for $300-$600, but I cannot see carrying a low quality brand. How bad does this make me? I do have a Longchamps nylon tote which I love and will carry as a carry on or a cosmetics tote. I don't care to mention brands, but certain brands I don't want to even be seen with. What's your confession???
