I am an attorney and my boyfriend does social work which is wonderful but doesn't pay at all so he definitely does not understand how I have the value of a used car or a down payment on a home sitting in my closet. My girlfriends don't understand it either...the farthest they will go is a $200 Coach bag. I only have one fashionista girlfriend who understands. However, my view is that everyone has their thing. Men buy "toys" also but very often they are far more expensive than our whole bag collection. Personally I could care less about driving a $50k+ car. If I have an extra $800/month I'd rather buy more real estate or an appreciating asset than drop that on a car note. When my boyfriend talks about the first things he wants to get once he finishes his masters and starts making some decent money...he names like 3 cars he wants. I've had other boyfriends drop a mint on electronics equipment and motorcycles. In comparison, my bags are paid in full and I don't have a "note" every month on them. All of these things are depreciating assets (albeit I didn't start buying bags until I had bought a house first) but I have periodically cleaned my closet and sold bags that I dont use or changed my mind about and I have always gotten my money back and sometimes more than I paid for them even if it was several seasons old. If it is a style/color that was hot and sold out or a classic bag that transcends trends...you will find people who will pay a premium to get their hands on it if you put it up for sale and have maintained all your receipts and authenticity cards and kept it in good shape. Some people don't understand how some art pieces command thousands of dollars either. For my girlfriends that don't understand, I note that the money they drop on getting their hair and nails done every month equates to buying one $1200 bag every year. I do my own hair and nails....I'd rather have a fly bag. Anyhoo...those are the justifications I use when my circle looks at me like I am crazy when I buy a new bag.

^That's the best explanation I've read in a while -- wish I was that sharp! I bet with all your professional experience, you can stop nay-sayers in their tracks pretty quickly!

thanks for the nice compliments..

the coin purse was $285.
it's perfect for holding credit cards - i actually use it as a regular wallet.

Here are some of my bags My collection's pretty small considering I'm still a student :p

Chanel






Louis Vuitton

My mum bought this for me (she has one herself too) BUT refuse to let me carry this out as it's a collector's supposedly, thus the plastic wrapping and stuff are still intact
