@EdithEllenLily @stevieb @Boehm Collector  Thanks for the warm welcome!!!!  It will take a huge amount of willpower to end the year without a new bag. The AK Sangria bag keeps whispering to me to bring home her sister in the gunmetal once it becomes available again.. LOL or maybe the gold distressed. 

 

I absolutely love leather having worked with it for so many years. There is nothing compared to the feeling of unwrapping a new bag. There is an economic term called utility and it refers to the satisfaction gained from something. For me, the utility I get from buying and using a handbag is incomparable. Every time you carry the bag it's like a love story LOL. It's not just a purchase but an experience.


 

Ah Vix... @NycVixen... I remember the days of feeling that way... But I guess I've become desensitized... That's the problem with volume over time. Tthe new handbag high isn't as significant as it once was... Every once in a blue moon I still get that gushy feeling over a new bag, but not so much anymore...

 

 


@stevieb What is the last bag that gave you that feeling?


@NycVixen, I was just waxing poetic about it a week or two ago... It's my Lauren Humphrey satchel...  Love it, love it, love it...

@Serendipity @stevieb LOL.. handbag siblings is the best type of siblings there are!

 

I have to say I love how far my husband come come in the last 3 years of marriage. When we met years ago he used to pay such close attention to everything I bought and be judgmental but now he just pretends so well that he doesn't notice. LOL. It's epic! He's so natural about it. He even compliments my purchases now!! That's love!!! 


 

@NycVixen...  Awwww... that's nice.

@EdithEllenLily Did you see the new BB pieces? There's a 36-inch version of the textured link necklace. Wow. There's a BB show upcoming too in October. Didn't note the date, but I'm sure I will soon look it up and commit it to memory. LOL.


Uh, excuse me @Serendipity but weren't you just last week noting you were going to behave for a while and, you know, try to avoid out house status... ? I think you were... Must've had a little memory lapse there and perhaps you should have another one with respect to that upcoming date...


@stevieb I know, I know, I know... Smiley Surprised


 

Yes @Serendipity, intellectually you know... The problem is, you're losing control. Again. Come on girl, think about it. Do you want to end up like EEL @EdithEllenLily ? With a freakin' moving van parked outside your house... Baking endless cakes to keep your husband from walking out the door and not looking back...? Think long and hard before you commit that date to memory... You can do this Serendipity... That out house looms...


@stevieb Well this is why I didn't look at the date closely! Really BB is such a bad weakness. I'm like that sock monkey with the limited edition vases. You know the relative to @EdithEllenLily's family.

@stevieb @EdithEllenLily Oh yes, picking up from the previous thread, bags for rain and snow... Seriously, how could I be so remiss in my collection building? I have no bags for rain or snow! This opens a whole new world. Expecially for snow. I mean, come on, I need one, right? LOL.

 

As for that $29 bag @stevieb, to quote the honorable one: uh-huh-uh-huh-uh-huh.

 

Smiley Tongue Smiley WinkSmiley LOL


Perhaps not snow @Serendipity, but yes, defintely rain... That said, inexpensive pleather and nylon bags work just fine. No need for pricey, high end rain bags... Just thought I'd point that out for you...


@EdithEllenLily @stevieb We get so little rain here, I've never really thought about it. I'm trying to remember what I do use when it rains. The Roma most recently I guess. This is going to be a big rain year though with El Nino. Maybe my MZ Wallace bag is water resistant. @foo foo shi shi do you use yours in the rain?


 

For what you paid for it, it ought to be... Frankly, it ought to perform a floor show...

 

Woman Tongue  Woman Very Happy

 


@stevieb I think it does that because everyone always gathers round. Smiley Tongue

@stevieb That's gorgeous!!!! I love Ralph Lauren bags. The quality for the price is amazing. I have a RL tote that I just love. 

 

My newest bag purchases I always have displayed on my two couches. After a while, there is not a lot room left to sit. OMG there were two occasions when he sat on my bags. I screamed so loud he was scared of his mind LOL. He knows better now. I gently move them and make room for him but not eagerly.....

@Serendipity:  My friends and family don't encourage my "habit" the way all of you do here-- that's for sure! (In fact, they all think l'm nuts, lol.)
