I think the quarantine went to my brain. I rarely use my “older” bags.. definitely in retirement.. instead I have bought a few new totes LV, FLP, to keep a few things in like hand wipes packet, masks, GG wristlet with my ID and cards. I live in LA and go to dinner once in awhile.. but it’s not relaxing and I feel uneasy. Staff masking, using hand wipes, etc. I never forget this virus is for real. I prefer to order in and sit outside until things get better. I do miss my lovies in the closet-but bringing them for simple errands feels pretentious to me. Many people are not doing well with the effects of quarantine, financial problems, and resultant sharp rise I homelessness which has never been higher in LA than now. Don’t want to invite crime.
I have fully switched from my Chanel to my Jansport backpack. Even though I feel more comfortable to wear my Chanel again I now prefer my Jansport for functionality and not having to worry about rain, putting it on the ground, etc. I have put my Love bracelet back on, wear watches again, and recently got a pair of diamond studs that I feel are low profile. Having insurance helps to give me some peace of mind.
I have always hand and religiously used hand sanitizer. Even before the pandemic, I never went without it so I have never been concerned about it getting on my bags or damaging them. Now that I am back in the office almost everyday, I have been carrying my favorite bags again. I haven't felt physically unsafe with them either, but would probably scale back if I did.
