My Fendi Fetish

I'm the first one to admit that I have a ridiculous obsession with purses. I have big ones, small ones, messenger, clutch, hobo, you name it, I have it. They range in beautiful hues and textures and I love them all. Every now and then a new designer bag floats onto the market ranging in price from $750 and up. Once I see "the" bag, I fall madly and deeply in love and I can think of nothing else, vowing to own it at any means necessary.

Now when I say "at any means necessary"what I really mean is, "as soon as I can find a convincing knock off on Ebay." I wish I had the gumption (and the cash!) to drop a cool grand on a bag, but that has never happened in my life, and I don't expect that it ever will. I guess I just don't foresee myself ever being in a position financially to be able to say "there's nothing better I could use this money for." Wait a sec, that doesn't sound very optimistic does it? Ok Erik, this one's for you. I have never spent $1000 on a purse, but one day I vow that I will. (Hey, I never said it had to be my $1000!)

My most current obsession in with the Fendi Spy Bag. It's so pretty that I get the stomach flips when I look at it. (Ok, I know some of you are thinking that I'm being totally superficial, but I'm not. Think about the way some guys admire and obsess over their cars. Same thing.) Anyway, I have been dancing around buying one of these for the past 5 months because even the knock offs are in the $300+ range, and that's waaay out of my price range. But I just love it so much. LOOK at it! It's like a piece of art...very expensive art. I thought that maybe writing about it would calm the monkey off my back, but no such luck. This bag is so hot, even the monkey wants one. Go figure.
