In short: I love luxury handbags but I hate to spend so much money for them. Not that I am cheap, not at all, but I feel guilty about it, because, I guess, deep down I realize that it is a bit ridiculous spending so much money on a bag when it could be spent on much more important things.
So I go back and forth. I'll decide I want one, and then I'll talk myself out of it.
But now there is a new twist in this old story because my BIG birthday is coming up (10 days away!) and I've been specifically saving for this birthday present for a year. Not because I think I'm so special I deserve a fancy handbag, but because I'm getting old and I figured if I gave myself something to look forward to (like a Louis Vuitton) I won't dread September 19th so much this year.
Well, let me tell you, the day is almost here, I'm dreading it anyway, and I have no idea if I will go through with the big purchase. And I still don't know which bag I want... the choice is between these beauties:
Gucci Sukey Tote - $950
As you can see, I'm sticking close to the $1,000 mark, because more than that it becomes an airfare to Europe... and that would be wrong to carry around my arm (I rather travel).
What would you do? What would you buy? How do you spoil yourself?
