CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY!

I have been saying I wanted this bag for the past month and as the mail man delivered this medium size box with the words Saks direct on the label. My heart pounded in my chest at the thought  my bag had arrived. I opened that box and below the thousand wraps and tissue paper sat that brown bag with the lovely five letters GUCCI! I love the Boston bag which is a handle bag I am not a fan of shoulder bags never have been. This bag without taxes retails for $995.00 with tax $1,095.00 and it worth every penny In my opinion.

My mother was there when I received it and nearly had a heart attack after finding out how much it cost.  "you can get the same one for 50 dollars at the flea market" her words exactly and it got me to thinking. When it comes down to replica/knock off bags do you wear them why or why not? My Mom gave me a bag for Christmas one year a while ago and I didn't say ewwwwww it's a knock off. I was just grateful that she cared enough to get me a gift. In My adult age I rather just wear a nice no name bag then a knock off. I mean forever 21 has bags so does Macy's and everywhere in between. I just don't see the need to rock it if it's not real. *shrugs* I would love to hear you ladies opinion on the matter.

  6. It's gorgeous! To be honest, I don't mind purchasing knock offs. Personally, I would rather spend a large amount on something like a payment on something long term like a couch, tv, etc. Just my opinion. Beautiful bag!

  7. I have spent a chunk of money on many things here and there but if I was to spend 1000 on anything it would probably be a fab pair of Louboutins or 10 pairs of Steve Maddens lol but that bag is gorgeous... My bf is a huge saver so I guess he has been rubbing off on me. If you like high end designer bags but dont wanna spend a grip try the outlet stores like Off Saks 5th ave or Neimann Marcus' Last Chance stores
