I may be alone on this…I do not know why I can’t just let this go! It’s a thing. It’s a nice leather thing, but still it’s just a thing. I need a new handbag. Mine is falling apart. The stitching here and there and a bit of the leather piping broke through (about an inch on the corner), so the plastic is showing. I’ve had the same purse for what seems like forever. I guess probably about 8 years, it’s hard to remember it’s been so long. I LOVE it. If I could buy a brand new exact same purse I would, alas this is never possible 8 years down the road.
Last year FI offered to buy me a new one for my b-day. I got all excited and started online shopping only to discover I didn’t want anything, but my own bag! I think it must be because this bag was one of the few things I had to be happy about through that 8 year train wreck of a relationship I had. I honestly feel like I’m cutting a piece of me off over this! I know it’s stupid bag, but AARRGGHH!
Now, my birthday is next week and again FI says “Well let me buy you a new one!” I’ve been looking for over an hour. I found ONE Kate Spade I think is cute and maybe I could love it, but it only comes in lime green and nude and I’m a mohogany/chocolate kinda girl. How can a girl not want a new bag? Who doesn’t like presents? What is wrong with me?! I want to let this thing go. I need to let this thing go. The ol’ girl is looking sad and tired and I think she needs to be laid to rest. Slow down, not throwing her out, that will *never* happen. Ha.
