Hi-jacking this thread from the lovely Hermes forum ladies... Its a very interesting issue...the discussion of priorities of luxury bags, ours the LVs, to other materials in our life. Its like a perspective on ratio or even preference for sure...but what is our individual ratio or priorities in comparision to other needed or unneeded mateiral life? Do you think that someone who carries LVs need to first take care of other material matters as a ratio/priority base? I'll go first; I think that a savings is needed, before buying luxury items for myself. Others like housing or cars or whatever is just a personal preference or choice.
