I'm happy to announce that I decided to not purchase the Empriente bag this year. I had a tempting offer to get one through Saks Major Purchase account and pay zero interest for 12 months. But I didn't think the bag was worth looking at a huge bill for 12 months! Besides, I'm paying for my Cartier ballon bleu watch that way and it just feels like too much pressure. So I will continue to admire and congratulate everyone else that gets one. But I'm going to be "good" and enjoy the LVs that I currently own.
