Here we go again...
I remember writing, not too long ago, that I was ok as far as new handbags, that I didn't need a new one, that I had plenty of handbags in my closet.
This still holds true, yet lately I've found myself lusting after this bag or that tote and I'm convinced that I must suffer from some kind of "handbag obsession" disease. Because every so often, no matter what, I start craving a new bag, and I won't find "shopping peace" until I buy it!
For example, yesterday I went to Bloomingdale's and while I was there to look at dresses and shoes, I couldn't help myself, so I had to stop and check out the handbags (Tory Burch has some pretty handbags in light colors, perfect for the coming warm seasons)!
One of the bags I'm thinking about maybe buying, is a Louis Vuitton. I don't want to spend a fortune on the bag, and some of the real interesting ones can cost in the $2,000 range, like the Boetie.
So if you actually look at the cheaper ones, under $1,000 this is what you find: the Neverfull PM for only $650.
A very pretty tote, but there is a "stigma" that comes with it. Since it's the cheapest one, it's like an entry level bag. It sends the message that "I really wanted a Louis Vuitton, but this is all I could afford". Not to mention the fact that since I've had my eyes on it, pretty much every other Louis Vuitton I see out there it's a Neverfull.
So I still need to do some thinking about it.
In the meantime, I browse the Coach store, which, worse comes to worse, always has the right bag at the right price for me. Like the Signature Ottoman Brooke, and it only costs $298.
I'll keep you posted...
