I need a new handbag. Handbags have become such a status symbol. I don’t think I have ever put as much thought into a bag as I have over the one I have yet to buy. Maybe now that I am not as thin as I was when I was younger I am paying more attention to things like bags and shoes. I have rarely spent much money on a bag. I got my last handbag as a gift and it worked fine. But now the handle is ragged and it is time to move on.
I guess I have been busy having kids but have you seen the cost of hand bags today!! Crazy! So I have picked out my dream bags, two of them, the only trouble is if I were to buy them I’m pretty sure my husband would leave me. He thinks more than two pillows on a bed is excessive. The thought of paying thousands of dollars on a hand bag is unfathomable to him. All right it is to me as well, but a girl can dream…
The bag I really lust after is called the Celine Boston bag by Phoebe Philo.
Of course it is about $1500. You can see more of it at WomensHandbag.com . Even though they call it a Boston bag it looks so Parisian to me. My next dream bag is from PS1
Here it is at Barneys for about $2000.00. It looks like it would last for years and fit everything I need. I should never have looked at all of these bags because now the ones I can afford look so cheep!
I have found a Fossil bag for about 100.00 that I like. Still I have never paid so much and I’m feeling guilty. I have some birthday money and I’m thinking just thinking I might get it. What do you think?
