Hahahaha, I could just imagine a guy divorcing his wife because she bought an expensive handbag. I really dont get it. My dad can certainly afford it but thinks spending money on handbags is the stupidest thing ever.

He expects my mother and I to use one handbag for the next 10 years. Silly man!

If the bag costs as much as a car, I guess the person paying would expect it to be used as long as a car.

See, my father can't use that argument because he's really into sports cars and has been known to buy 3 in one year. He feels about cars the way my mother an I feel for handbags. So he is in no position to yell at us.

ALthough he did warn my fiance that I could potentially put him in the poor house.

Well the SA said that this croc was 10 yrs old! I'm not sure if that makes a difference but let's just say that the sight alone is quite breath-taking. Ohhhh:p I'll be dreaming about it tonight (cuz that's the only place I can EVER own such a thing... in my dreams... hahahahah )

Sorry but in my humble opinion your father works for the money so he can indeed say something against it when it comes to spending it on something that expensive ! And if he spends his money on something he likes its his own business cause it is his money. No offense

I take no offence, but in my mother's defence I must say that technically its both their money. My mother's family is quite well off due to the fact that they're in the oil business and she has a lot of savings. Her and my dad have a joint account and keep both their monies in the account.

ALthough you're right, my dad does work very hard for his money, but in the end they both have money in that account that belongs to both of them. Its just that my mother never worked a day in her life so she doesn't know the value of a dollar like my father does.

Oh don't worry about it. Luckily for my hubby, I've been working since I was 15 yrs old so I'm VERY familiar w/ the value of money. To each their own! You might as well enjoy life while you can.:p

but carry the book by my hand

We don't know how much her mother's bag cost and frankly, it's none of our business. What people do w/ their own money is their own business. They're free to make their own decisions. The same thought applies to other parties (e.g. case a: people who chose to donate to charity and case b: people who'd rather buy a nice car vs. using the money towards a college education.)

My most expensive bag I had was actually a gift from my best friend. She got me a juicy couture bag( looks like the birkin) and it was around 475.00. I kept it for one week before we returned it. It was a gorgeous bag, but it weighed a ton, WITHOUT my stuff in it. The straps were too short to put it over my shoulder, and it was too heavy for the crook of my arm or to just carry in my hand. So, i returned it and bought a coach! Now I am dying for a balenciaga or one of those BE&D bags (love the Crawford bag)
