  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. For those of you that responded to my original post, thank you... Lots of interesting/funny/helpful advice and stories.
    A lot of you said your husbands eventually accepted it... Well he must be coming around because we are both here looking at these beauties lol

    I'd like to point out that HE wanted to come in here to look at glasses that they apparently no longer make... ImageUploadedByPurseForum1458577392.608720.jpg
  2. Glad to hear!
  3. :tup:
  4. That's great to hear! Did you show him the previous thread/or talk to him about it? What made him change his mind?

  5. I honestly haven't said a word... We were out shopping for a upcoming vaca and he fell in love with a pair of 900$ sunglasses, I just told him to get them if he really liked them. (I personally could never spend that much on glasses and he knows it) so maybe it was some insight for him.
  6. That's great! Maybe he'll start to see by you leading by example. My hubby is the same way. He tells me to get it if I really want it, but some of the things he spends on I'm like wtf? :shocked::wtf: Just because I don't understand, I at least understand it makes him happy and I'll support that. :smile: Best of luck!

  7. Lol thank you. I'm my head I was like... RU F'ing KIDDING ME!!
  8. Then clearly it was the Fates intervening on your behalf, and it is always wise to pay attention to those ladies. They do not take kindly to being ignored, so I'd buy the LV item/s you love to demonstrate that you've got the message. :smile:
  9. This is great. He really likes to give me a hard time but he was out looking at a Bass boat last weekend. And he has no problem plunking down serious cash for fishing stuff and outdoor wear. Somehow his Patagonia, North Face and Kuhl clothes aren't designer.
  10. Haha... they eventually get worn down. I basically bring up purses and shoes everyday with my bf. He now knows LV almost as well as I do. ;)

  11. Omggg that is soooo my husband... He insists on getting a Ducati motorcycle (not happening) and buying a boat when I don't even like to fish no big deal!

  12. I completely agree now lol! Although he keeps referring to the favorite mm as (the mm evening bag)
  13. Glad to hear that all is well on the LV front with your hubby :smile:

  14. This is so true. My husband is now the "purse man" at his firm cause he can recognize every brand of the purses of his colleagues. They were all amazed at his purse knowledge. I guess he couldn't block out my years of talking about purses and all those wisdom forcefully entered his brain...

  15. this is what happened with my Jeffrey too! He knows the difference of styles from LV and Chanel now XD he even knows which one he prefers too... I'm so proud! XD
