I was at Fenwicks briefly yesterday. I was buying new pillows, but I always seems to pass the handbag section to have a bit of a swoon over the bags. There was a man buying a bag for his wife for Valentine's Day (on what planet do you get Mulberry for VDay??). Anyway, the salesgirl helped him pick out a Soho bag...in gold. He was saying "I don't think she has a gold bag, but she likes gold jewellery!! She assured him his wife will love it. She might love it, but I hope he kept the receipt. My point is what would make a man think that he should spend so much money on something he is not sure she will like...based on the help of a 20 year old salesgirl??? I told my husband that even if he is ever inclined to buy me a bag for an occasion...Don't! That may sound ungrateful, but I would never want my husband to chose my bags. Not that there is any worry of that, I got a coffee maker for Christmas.
