Pregnant and cranky
- Nov 13, 2011
So my mother is the one who turned my sister and I into handbag lovers. I have gone with my mother many times to the LV store growing up and as an adult. Sometimes we have "purse parties" with each other. Usually we either swap with each other temporarily or someone will have something to swap permanently. We do this on a yearly basis and it is mainly just small accessories or borrowing someone else's bag/clutch for an event. Recently my mother approached my sister and then me about buying her Louis Vuitton cerises speedy 25. She feels that now in her 50's she has outgrown the style and no longer likes it. I was with her when she originally bought it. At the time I thought it was a terrible purchase. Now I am in love with the bag, however I worry about criticism that I may receive from some of my friends. I showed my best friend the bag and she told me to pass on the bag and thought it was ridiculous that my mother would sell it to me instead of just give it to me. Personally I do not see the problem as she has bought a bag from me. We don't charge retail for it, but we sure don't just give away 800+ bag. She also told me that the cherries on the bag make it more suitable for a teenager than a grown woman. I already receive criticism from friends, because I buy designer bags and am told constantly that I am wasting my money. I do not want to be criticized for purchasing it, but I really am in love with it. What should I do?
