This thread is dedicated to my fellow TPFer lina2, who, apparently, is ALSO my co-worker!!! It's so funny (& weird) how it all happened....she asked for my opinions on a bag she just got, then we started chatting about purse obsession, mentioned this forum, then she was like, OMG, you are hikarupanda?!?! I read your posts all the time!!! It's so weird coz I am kinda embarassed to reveal my unhealthy obsession/addiction to purses so I rarely discussed about bags with friends, let alone co-workers in the boring public sector office setting!!!! But today fate led us to discover each other and reunite!! Not online but IRL!!! And of course we were like trying to convert other female purse-obsessed coworkers into TPFers! Have you ever "discovered" someone you have already known IRL (maybe for years) that he/she is actually an obssessed TPFer just like you are? How did that happen??
