The bulls shit debate....


over the destruction of the $100,000 Birkin Bag.  As you might have guessed I love love handbags. When I see them I drool and when I buy them I get super excited that is just the way it is and the way my DNA functions...some people collect stamps I collect handbags. I mean I love my handbags and I am one spoiled bitch on buying very over inflated priced bags that sometimes make me want to vomit and punch myself in the face but you know what I worked hard for them and after doing the responsible thing with my money{paying bills, savings donations} I decided the one way to splurge on myself was getting me a few high end designer bags.   Now I get that it is in the name of art and I get what the photographer was trying to point out..On the other hand I would never EVER spend $100,000 on one bag that is like Victoria Beckham status shit and ridiculous.  However if you really think about it's all relevant how much money you have/make.

I had a chance to catch Mrs. Eastwood and Company on the telly last night and because I need to add another reality show on my list like a hole in my head. Hey why the hell not let's check it out and see what the fuss it all about. I was glad to say I am kinda of happy I did. This woman has got to be the most down to earth level headed woman ever especially since she could be a total snot ass because HELLO she is married to Clint Eastwood Hollywood royalty.  She is a pretty awesome woman who came from humble background and worked her ass off to get were she got and she tries to instills true values in her children. Mrs. E was quite disgusted that anyone would pay such an obscene amount of money for a bag. Like she stated it is hard for her to look at someone carrying  3 years worth of a teachers salary on her arm{her dad is a teacher}. That part is really sad, we pay our teachers almost nothing to teach our most prize possession -  our children and then we have some people who would be pay $100,000 for a purse. I know what her boyfriend was trying to do as he stated last night this is a bag the same type of bag you get at a grocery store {ahem no}, you put shit in it.....What is not cool is that now Francesca Eastwood is getting death threats over these photos...really now...... death threats over the destruction of a bag.....come on people. It's their money they do with it what they please...yes times are hard,  yes should they have maybe made the statement in another less frivolous way...sure but really when it come down to it it is none of anyone's business what they do with their money. Also if you really looks at the pictures what they are trying to say with the photos is that money was wasted on a pointless bag...as much as I love it...yes fashion sometimes is just plain ridiculous.

It's true !! When I saw ppl freaking out over a stupid picture I was amazed ! Theres sooo many other things more disturbing going on then a bag on fire ! I got her point and I agree :) I splurge on your Louie now and then ( I would never light them on fire lol ) 100 grand is ridiculous to spend on a bag !!

I love me some purses, but I couldn't do $100K on a bag. I don't know if I could do $100K on anything I'm not living in.

Feeling the love......
