I admit it, I can be a bit of a purse whore. Really, I love them. I consider my purses my mobile art collection that I can wear and admire at all times, instead of real art that can only hang in one place. I store them lovingly in their dustbags, and take more time choosing what bag to wear than I do the actual clothes that I wear. However, As much as I love my purses, I love the contents of my wallet even more. So, as much as I dream of Hermes, Chanel, Louis and Prada – my wallet screams budget, budget, BUDGET! Sometimes I hate being sensible. But it is, at the end of the day, more important for me to have financial security for my family than it is to have a purse.
I purchased two Coach purses last year.I know Michael Kors is all the rage right now, but I am totally in love with the new leather Coach purchases. I also bought one of my dream bags, that I totally forgot to photograph:( And the beloved wallet that I purchased after having an epiphany about money a few months ago.
I have quite a lengthy wish-list again this year – Prada Saffiano, Louis Vuitton Epi Alma and Empreinte Speedy, Hermes Jypsiere and Chanel GST, and of course more Coach!! Quite a lot but if I put my purse “wants” out in the universe and the universe is sure to respond right?! Hopefully sooner rather than later. I’ll check back next to year and see what I actually did purchase. I also know that all of these are very expensive purses, but you know, we all have our vices. Plus, I’m more than willing to buy pre-loved… especially Hermes. Actually, that one is more of a five-year plan.
What about you? What will you frivolously splurge on this year? Purses, shoes, make-up? What will you pass on in order to save a little cash?
