i don't know what's happening to me. i've never owned anything designer, and i've never really wanted to own anything designer. sure, i have a couple pairs of seven jeans (which i got on sale), and a bunch of betsey johnson stuff (all nordstrom rack and ebay deals), but nothing "designer" designer. until now. monday, during my break at work, i ventured to the first floor of nordstrom to get my usual solo espresso with a little bit of soy at the e-bar and passed through the cosmetics, shoes, and handbags area. i don't know what came over me, but i decided to wander over to the handbag section. lately, i've been looking for a classic style of bag in a neutral color that matches everything and looks professional, however, never in my wildest dreams did i think that a designer bag would be my solution. i approached the sale section and it was like a light shone down from the heavens. a coach bag. originally $298, but i didn't pay even CLOSE to that much. (yes, i'm justifying this). so i bought it. i'm rather pleased with it too. it's quite classy and will match with anything!
i do have conflicting feelings about this though. have i completely been sucked into consumer society? am i becoming a superficial person for buying this bag? should i really have spent what i did on a purse? am i "one of those girls" that has a designer bag? i don't know.
