You are correct... You need to be positive and think of all the good times you will have shopping in the future! Don't dwell on this negative behavior! Take the high road...after all not many people are on this road! It is a beautiful stroll all by yourself.ITA!!
Soon when I am done with school and get my career started and my nice aunt & I go on shopping sprees at LV, she won't be able to say a word!
This isn't right.. Don't send the bag. Get it hotstamped with your initials and keep it. How is your cousin getting the bag fixing the problem? Don't give into that behaviour, they are purposely doing it so they get what they want. If your cousin wants an LV tell her MUM to get it for her. Jeeeeez. Please don't send it to her thats so sillySigh.
I did a reveal here late last week of a DE Speedy B 30 that my aunt had given to me as a gift for getting straight A's. It was a bag she had bought for herself and used a few times before realizing it wasn't the right bag for her, so it had been sitting in her closet until she sent it to me. She and I have a great relationship - I'm kind of like the daughter she never had (she has two sons). Between my cousins and I, there are only two girls - myself and one female cousin. She's not into fashion or handbags or anything expensive for that matter. Her mom (my other aunt) got really upset when she found out that I was given an LV "just for getting straight A's" while her daughter "wasn't given anything" when she got straight A's once.
In a way, I understand where she is coming from, but in other ways I feel she just doesn't get it. My aunt did not go out and buy me this bag brand new just because I got straight A's. It was a bag that was merely collecting dust because she wasn't going to use it and she felt that giving it to me was a good way to at least get use out of the bag. My parents passed away when I was in high school and I have been taking care of my younger brother ever since. I finally got him standing on his own two feet so at 25 years old, I was finally able to go to college... which I am paying my own way through, btw. So this was a very big deal for me. My cousin, on the other hand, went to college straight out of high school and never had to worry about taking care of her younger brother. Her parents paid for all of her expenses, including tuition, and did not have to lift a finger. She has no interest in fashion and is very distant towards our aunt, while I am pretty close with that aunt and we share our love of fashion and designer handbags (she was the one who got me into LV in the first place).
Just to alleviate the drama between my aunts, I was asked to send my cousin the bag today. I have a lot going on right now with school and work, I don't need the extra drama in my life... so I gave it up without much of a fight. I am sad knowing that that beautiful, MIF Speedy B probably won't get used much and when she does, it'll probably be the other aunt using her rather than my cousin anyway even though it is now technically my cousin's gift.
My aunt feels so bad that this happened, especially because she didn't think it would be such a huge deal in the first place considering my cousin hates that kind of stuff. Who knows what really happened. She offered to take me to the LV store when I come visit in a few months to get me a bag of my choice, but I feel bad accepting such a big gift so I told her it's okay and not to worry about it. It was a rather generous gift just for getting straight A's and I only accepted the Speedy B in the first place because it wouldn't have gotten any use otherwise and it's not like she was spending any extra money by giving that to me.
I'm pretty heartbroken right now because I was so excited to have a carefree Speedy B. My Speedy B is mono so I have to baby her a little bit, but having it in DE pretty much solved all my problems. To make matters worse, my red purse organizer got delivered today. I ordered a red one to match the DE since I would have been using her more.
Sorry for writing you guys a novel, but I needed to vent somewhere. Has something like this ever happened to any of you??
