I'm with you there - I think it's because you get to walk out of the store with the coveted item all fresh and new and in a pretty shopping bag - all the way home, I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it!!
You're right Suzy. It's something about walking around with that bag in your hand. Also the curiousity others might feel about what is in it. I know that when I'm at the mall and I see a girl with a Gucci or LV shopping bag I want to know what she got. It's like you have a secret in that bag. laughs
Definitely!! I was so excited when I got my first Louis Vuitton for the whole day I kept thinking about and examining my beautiful little bag!! loll. if I order one online though I'd be really excited when I rip the package open.
sometimes when i buy handbags online the excitement is even higher because you have all the anticipation waiting for it to arrive! except if i buy on ebay because most of the time i'm worried i wont get an authentic item..lol
I was just thinking about this the other day after I ordered a bag online. It's just not the same as making an outing of buying a new bag in the shop. Going to the shop....chatting with the SA...carrying the shopping bag with your lovely new purchase tucked inside...stopping for coffee or lunch and peeking in the bag....
Kind of silly perhaps, but I love making a little event out of it.
