I think she should. Even if sheís carrying a plastic bag for a purse! Honestly, I think a few of those classless celebutantes are more worthy of being degraded because of what they wear considering they have all the money in the world and still canít find any taste.

Frankly, I have not been a fan of any Coach bag since I was fairly young and since they stopped making them in NYC, but I do LOVE the ďAliĒ in the whisky color; furthermore, I own $1000+ handbags and I do know a thing of two about high-end fashion so spending money on an item I like and I deem worthy is not an issue. But, I love this Coach bag so much I canít stop thinking about it and will probably buy it relatively soon. It seems like the perfect size, color, texture and style to go with my casual every day clothes and Iíll feel like a million bucks and a goddess while itís hanging on my shoulder just as much as I will carrying any of my other bags. XOXOXO

very insightful! some fashionistas can be very stuck up. i think a truly stylish person must be open. ...to like things not because they're expensive, but because it's of good quality/style...
i do get what ctstyle says though. a lot of women here (in suburbia) think that coach is something to be proud of (not that it's not, of course...but i think they do for the wrong reasons).
I think what ctstyle said could sound a bit stuck-up, but she does have a point. Usually,those limited-minded women that carry those bags do feel special and important when they carry their coach bags. What's bad is that they usually do it in a snooty manner. They try to make everyone else feel bad about not having a coach bag like them (or at least this is how it is in OC), so basically, they're doing to others, what Hermes Birkin bag women would do to them. (it's a sad, cruel hierarchy.)

Good point UberQ! Snootiness is unattractive period! I agree with you 100%. And it is a sad, cruel hierarchy. Karma.

Love her Birkin, but I wonder why she always looks mad. OT, but has anyone ever seen a photo of Victoria smile?

I like that clutch! I noticed though that the clutch has gold tone hardware and the corset on her pants has silver tone hardware (as well as her jewelry). Does anyone else think that's kind of a no no or am I being old fashioned?
