I posted this thread this morning http://forum.purseblog.com/louis-vuitton/a-gift-for-my-niece-80256.html and my friend had taken over the gift to my niece's house this afternoon. I just got a phone call from my cousin - niece's mom who basically refused the gift and yelled at me saying I was a label whore and gave this gift to her daughter to show the rest of the world how much money I had, and did I want her daughter to think she was entitled to designer stuff? I'm so sad. I think I should have been more careful before giving her such a gift. Maybe I was more influenced by young PFers who said they carried designer items from young ages and loved the stuff they had, and so it felt like a normal and okay gift to give. I ended up looking like a materialistic person who tried to show off in front of everybody else by buying my niece a very expensive gift. I don't know if my friend will take back her backpack, and I feel bad to ask for my money back if my cousin returns the gift (she said she would).
