    Default Bag newbie on the radar!

    Hello bagforum veterans,

    I am new to this website and just a newbie in general to purse addictions. My earliest memory of designer handbags was when my family and I toured Europe in the summer of '03. We were in an LV store in Rome and a sales associate was serving us orange juice in wine glasses. I was 18 then and I didn't care for anything in the store, just that I was getting free OJ.

    Freshman year of college, my parents and I got into a quarrel. Eventually it subsided. We were at an LV store and my mom said I could get anything from the store (I think as a symbol of our peace treaty). I chose these black, LV sneakers. I was 18 and still didn't care for LV, just that I was getting free sneakers.

    Fast forward a couple of years to when I was 22. My family and I were going out for my mom's bday and she walked down the stairs with the limited edition LV Dentelle Fersen. I didn't know what it was then but I think it was my moment of epiphany. The intricacy, the detailing, the beauty of the bag was quite remarkable. From then on, I started paying more attention to designer handbags. I borrowed my mom's limited edition LV Mini Linda for my graduation party. I've also secretly borrowed her LV multicolor Speedy 30 hehehe. With her collection of about 6 LV bags, 2 Chanels, and others that I can't remember, she became my fashion icon.

    I couldn't afford one of my own but I was still an LV admirer. Then my 23rd bday came. My dad asked my sister what I wanted her my bday. I had seen the Damier Azur Speedy in a magazine and thought it was gorgeous. I couldn't outright ask my parents for it since it was expensive and wouldn't feel right to directly ask my parents to get me something so pricey. So I told my sister that I simply wanted a bag, but I had my fingers crossed that my dad would get me the Speedy. During my bday dinner, my dad reached under the table and low and behold...out came the LV brown bag...with the Hampstead Azur PM:). Finally! One that I can call my own!

    I'm now 24 and can afford my own. I make sure to not become too materialistic in desiring fleeting things. But the bags are more than bags to me. I'm lucky enough to be well taken care of by my parents and they continue to get me designer bags (black Chanel for my 24th bday), and the bags are a symbol of their hard work and always trying to give their daughters the best that they can. And so my growing collection continues to be a symbol of my own hard work. Let the collection grow!
