I’ve always enjoyed designer things like handbags and sunglasses, but I’ve never been obsessed with them. My mom often carried a Dooney & Burke purse and when I was in high school or college, I can’t quite remember, I got a small one of my own. For my 21st birthday I got a bigger one that I LOVED and used all the time until I bought myself a Michael Kors bag (on sale, actually) using birthday money right around Mat and I’s one year anniversary (3 years ago now) and I’ve been using that one ever since.
When I first starting working at my current school, I bought myself a pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses at a sunglasses outlet on the way back from Palm Springs with Steph and her family. I love those sunglasses and I still wear them.
Then last weekend I bought myself a new white Michael Kors clutch for the wedding. Also, for the last week or 2, I’ve been rereading the Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella. I like these books because they’re an easy, fun read. But, I think the main character’s shopaholic tendencies, particularly for designer things, have made me want to browse such items online. Mainly handbags.
Since apparently I like to torture myself, I found myself on Prada’s website and saw this:
I’m drooling. Literally. But um, the price is *cough* a bit much. Just saying.
Maybe one day. If I save my “fun money” for about 10 years. And never go to Starbucks again (yeah right) I can have a Prada handbag. Or Gucci. Or Dolce & Gabbana. Or another Michael Kors (that one could actually happen fairly easily). *sigh*
Why do I suddenly want these things? Especially when I try NOT to spend money and we want to buy a house? Then again, just because I want them certainly does not mean I’m going to randomly go out and buy them. That would be stupid. And thankfully, I’m not stupid. I little obsessed at the moment, but not stupid. 🙂
