Inspired by the debates on "how young is too young" to carry Chanel, Hermes, LV, etc.: would you ever let your 12 year old borrow your Chanel, Hermes or LV? I don't have children. But it would depend on that child and how responsible she is. Maybe I am "selfish" with my things but I would much prefer to buy my child the bag than let her borrow if she is not 100% responsible and mature. Delicate beaded evening bags are probably a definite no. A bag that can withstand abuse, I would be more willing to let her borrow.
