I ask because of a thread I read earlier about high-end bags in the work-place; and I rarely see a bag beyond Coach or Vera Bradley amoung the mommy set. Granted, I'm not going to take mine to walk around the park and then hit the sandbox, but I don't see them ANYWHERE. LV, now and then but that is rare. So many of my GF's live in huge McMansions, have live-in help, nannies and carry "cheaper" purses; I have none of the above and LOVE my Chanel. *sigh* I can't be the only one who wonders about this, right?
