A major luxury brand, obviously, and major $$s:amazed: . There's something ugly-beautiful about the classic 'trophy bag' to me:P . It's sort of gothic, in a way. But also, the whole 'classic alligator bag' is going on, and I admit that I like the gator handle.

Yes. Quite big league money. And not exactly available everywhere, either!

There's something fascinating to me, particularly about the trophy bag. It's so old-fashioned stodgy, yet... not entirely so. To me, anyway!

Yeah. I know there's something thoroughly ugly about it. Yet it attracts me, Intl -- it's a strange attraction, like I said. The price protects me from myself, anyhow.

hehehhee! There's something very matronly about those bags in a way that's entirely non-ironic like Chanel bags sometimes can be when carried by a younger woman. Know what I mean?

And that prohibitive price-tag practically requires that you save until you're 70 anyway!

The Biltmore model, (for e.g.) is $4295.00, Bags-Of-Fashion.

And, actually, I agree with you. I think you are far wiser than I!

The feet scares me. As if when it becomes dark, they'll crawl and walk out of their shelves and attack!

I kind of like the brown one- Miranda? It's unusual. The others remind me of Hermes or Chanel with a twist.
