You purse whore! I should''ve known you''d chime in as soon as you saw the word "bag," lol! LMAO!Date: 12/15/2006 2:36:56 AM
monnie i just got a kathy van zeeland purse charm that i plan to adorn my b-bag with...i had never heard of her before but saw a bunch of her stuff all over ebay, so i had to chime in when i saw your post since i recognized her name. hehee. sorry i''m no help though with the actual bag Q!
Oh, now you're making me really drool. That is a super cute bag Kristy! I'm not even going to ask what the price tag is...ok, I am. How much? ARgh, I have a feeling you're going to say upwards of $1k and I'm not going to like that, lol. I think I might have to get a second job.Date: 12/18/2006 1:39:04 AM
I believe Stella McCartney handbags would fit the bill. She is vegan, does not use leather and has some INCREDIBLE vinyl bags that are to die for. Here's one just to whet your appetite:
I am not a veg, but I live in Oregon, so we have a lot of folks who are. One thing I''ve always wondered about was the not eating animals but wearing them dilemma. I most certainly do not judge, but I''ve had a vegan friend or two make a catty remark about someone with a fur trimmed coat, and I look down & they are wearing leather boots & carrying a leather bag. That''s always a head scratcher for me, but hey, I keep my mouth shut since I eat steak.Date: 12/18/2006 1:06:58 AM
Ooo thanks Ms.Flutter and Squarecut for those links! Ms.Flutter, love, love, love those fabric bags, they are so cute! One of these days I will have to visit the store on Armitage and get one made for myself...maybe I''ll bring a friend and turn it into a fun girl day.
Squarecut, have you ordered from mattandnat.com before? I have to do a more extensive browse through the website, but it looks great...just wondering how your experience has been with them. Thanks!
I really love reading the Balenciaga thread, but just can''t bring myself to even consider shelling out $1k or so for a bag made of animal skin. Most of my friends have Coaches, Chloes, Koobas, etc., and even a couple really nice Monsacs and Fossils, but I just can''t do it! There are all these threads in hangout about what people like to spend sort of outrageous amounts of money on...bags are just not and have never been my thing as far as major purchases. The fact that I stopped eating meat about 2 yrs ago has also been a factor--how can I justify not eating an animal but wearing one, ya know? I even watch footwear now...I''ve had some people comment on the fact that I don''t eat meat but have worn a leather watchband (a cheapy Diesel from a few seasons ago with that really wide band) or leather flip flops or even leather boots (gasp!), so now I''m a bit paranoid that when people find out I''m a veg they will start questioning me...plus in my own mind it''s very hypocritical to wear it but not eat it. One thing at a time, I guess!
It''s like the comment about "why is that person ordering a piece of cake and a diet coke?" the answer is - choose your calories and carbs!! hehe As for the veg thing - not everyone is veg because they animals. Some are because of religion or for health reasons. I have a friend who has no issue wearing leather but cannot stomach the thought of eating it after being raised 7th day adventist. Anyway - just browsing through this EVIL EVIL forum here.... I already ventured out and bought a new watch and a new purse.... ::sigh:: lol I *love* my new purse - even got a RED one which is so unlike me - and it isn''t leather it''s fake leather and was nowhere near a grand Nor was the watch hehehe but I love it too! I wish there was a thread for people who buy cheapo stuffDate: 12/18/2006 11:27:55 AM
