    I agree. I like unusual things too, but feeling good about other people not being able to afford the item is a little shallow IMO. That's not really individuality, that's status.

    I don't really care about someone being able to afford it, as the most expensive stuff is more in the eye of being bought by others... I rather something cheap and hard to find, maybe custom, that you CAN'T get, at least not easily... Money just makes those type of things easier to get... I want stuff that no matter how hard you try... you still need to try at least a little bit harder.

    If anything, I feel the complete OPPOSITE of the OP. I actually feel BAD when someone compliments one of my bags and makes a comment that they wish they could afford one. I'm very blessed to have what I do have, and I always look at it this way: There's ALWAYS someone out there who has more money than you. I'm happy with where I am, and I'm far from rich.

    That being said, I don't care what others think about my bags. I carry them because I love them- not because someone else loves them. If someone wants to hate on my bag, it really doesn't bother me. Of course, if someone compliments my bag, it makes me feel special LOL!

    Wow. That is the best feeling in the world?

    I guess different people have different priorities in life.

    I love my bags, but they are not the most important thing in my life.

    I have to say that more and more in this economy I actually am starting to feel GUILTY when I carry my more expensive bags...even my Coach Carly. I feel better when I carry my hobo because at least I got it at an outlet LOL.

    Don't get me wrong...I LOVE MY LOUIS VUITTON and I wouldn't ever take them back even if I could...BUT!!! It's not what defines me. There are so many people losing their jobs, etc and one of my Louis (especially Marilyn) could be a month of mortgage payments or two months of food for someone. So, no...it doesn't give me warm and tingly feelings to carry something someoen else can't afford just like it doesn't give me warm and tinglies when I go to the supermarket and load up on food without a second thought and overhear someone tell their kid that they can't have a certain snack because they can't afford it.

    For those of you who relish in others misery or think you are better than someone else because of what you have or what you earn, remember Karma is a B*** and your bad energy will come back on you tenfold. Be kind, honest, sincere, and generous during these hard economic times and you will be rewarded.

    Well said Nashville Diva--- I have been feeling the same way with my purses and accessories in this economy. I also agree that Karma does come back to bite one in the behind.

    I'm all for unique bags that make people happy but don't agree about taking joy in the knowledge that someone can't afford something that they want. If I had a unique bag, that would make me feel guilty and sad.

    I agree I carry bags because I love them not because I am rich. Anyone who really knows me knows that this is my hobby and I do not to take pleasure out of someone elses misery. In the economic times I almost feel guilty carrying some of my high end bags when people are just getting by paying off student loans, mortage etc. I am fourtunate at this time but do not relish in seeing other people hurt. I agree with Nashville diva... Karma is a B**** and what goes around comes around. Be kind to others that are less fortunate than you
    Though I think it makes you feel special when someone compliments a bag

    I love having bags that are unique. I don't like the cookie cutter like. It is not for me. My Gucci purses are rare. I have a small bucket bag LV, but it is very common to see another lady with one while I am out. My Hermes Birkin and Kelly bags may meet a member or two while traveling with me. I personally prefer to see diversity in bags.

    BTW, I sold off most of my designer bags that I would see too frequently.

    I personally like bags that are unique and somewhat cultural, some of my favorite bags are the ones I got from Bali. Really cool.
    smile and everything's going to be way better. :D

    I do like to get bags that are a little unusual, and also seem to have kind of odd taste in my choice of bags. I love LV and my two latest bags, the Suhali "Le Superbe" and the "Etoile bowling" are def. not popular! I love them though!
