I just joined this forum a few days ago. I asked for advice, and got some and also engaged in discussion with many menbers of the forum...nice comments, intelligent ideas, great feedback on questions. I also bought myself a handbag which suited my purposes and which I really liked. BUT...my handbag is a Dooney. I've spent a while (after purchasing my bag) reading other posts on this blog by people who have other kinds of handbags about Dooneys - and those posts make me feel really bad about my handbag. I've lost a great deal of the pleasure I received from that purchase. Most of you must understand that purchases do give you pleasure, and I felt that it was taken away from me,somehow. I am in no way blaming the people who post on this forum. It's their opinion. It's just that I don't feel I belong among the Chanels, the LVs and the Fendis and should take my sorry Dooney and go far, far away from here.
