Do y’all remember my hunt for those nude ballet flats that practically consumed all of my shopping energy a couple of years ago, only I never thought I would find them because every pair I wanted was insanely expensive? But then I found them and all was right with my world?
It’s happening again, y’all.
It’s not shoes this time, however. It’s handbags. Purses. I have fallen in love with Coach handbags and I’m just positive that I could be a better me if I had one. And again, the only thing standing in my way is the almighty dollar. It’s the same with those shoes I wanted. I just cannot justify spending that much money on clothes/shoes/jewelry/handbags/etc., even though I still wear the heck out of those shoes, thankyouverymuch, which is hysterical to me now considering I somehow convinced my parents all through high school that I just had to have those expensive jeans, shoes, purses, etc. But then I grew up and just had to be all practical and level-headed and responsible.
Now, I’m not saying that people who spend this much on a designer purse are crazy or anything. I wish I was brave enough to throw caution to the wind and just buy one already, but I just can’t. Basically, to me it’s like wearing two weeks worth of groceries on my arm. However, I can use the heck out of a purse, so part of me thinks that since I would probably use it a couple of years, it’s basically like buying three or four el cheapo purses over that time period. Right?
So tell me, do YOU buy expensive purses? And if you do, do you feel the least bit of guilt? Is it worth it?
