    Default Something I've noticed on here.

    Whenever we're discussing a bag on here that we all think is tacky, ugly, etc. I notice that people tend to say it's something a teenager should carry, and the implication is that teenagers have no taste. And I'm wondering why that is? I'm 15 years old and everyone in my family tells me i have great taste, and i wouldn't carry any of those bags. I'm not criticizing anyone, I'm just wondering.
    Us girls we are so magical, soft skin, red lips, so kissable.

    Because most teenagers can't afford an expensive handbag. Most parents of teenagers wouldn't buy their kid an expensive handbag.

    I wouldnt worry too much about it. 50 or 60 year old women don't get offended or whine if we say something looks like something a grandma would carry.

    As long as we don't say "that looks like something lrc would carry" I wouldnt take it personal

    Thanks for understanding and allowing tbf members to speak out without having to walk on eggshells

    The only time I have seen someone say that is about Dooney & Bourke bags. Or if the bag looks juvenile...

    we don't mean to offend you in any way... it's just a thing that comes up probably, not that it's personal or anything...

    I don't think everybody says that. It's all a matter of opinion. And that's what great about this forum. Everyone can express theirs rightly or wrongly. Personally, if I really don't like something and someone is really enthusiastic about it and has already spent their money on it, I won't add a comment. People are looking for validation. If they haven't bought it, then I would tend to say something, but not in a totally mean or personal way.

    certain things pertain to certain age groups. when someone says it's a teenager bag or whatever, that is their own personal opinion and they are making a generalization. you may be a teenager, but obv you have your own mature style, so when someone says that a bag looks like a teenager would carry it, that would not be directed towards you. i don't think you should take offense to it.

    Fashion sense has no boundaries and doesn't begin at a specific age. For what I have noticed in regard to teens is that they tend to purchase louder, brighter, trendier bags. I know all of my friends did and they had the money to purchase the expensive bags. Some people considered them tacky. I even considered them tacky. So don't take it personally. Just be happy that you are part of an elite group that has awesome taste.

    Are you kidding? My mother has a closet full of amazing Chanels, Hermes, LV and anything else that is expensive and she can put on my step dad's credit card. I only wish I wore what she wears.

    I don't know what to tell you. My 17 year old sister IS tacky in her taste. The more over the top the better as far as she is concerned.

    Don't take things personal. I had to learn that quick. People are going to say things you may not like, but as a majority, young girls are a little over the top, tacky, etc.. And btw, I'm not much older than you are, I just don't pay attention to it.

    I have a young daughter and she seems to have good taste. However sometimes she picks out some very bright color bags!! LOL!

    Don't let it bother you...You should feel honored that you have much better taste than the majority of your peers!

    I like bright colored bags, and I'm not a teenager! :lalala:
    lol I'm sure I like plenty of things some people consider juvenile. I play video games and I watch anime. I like what I like, and it doesn't bother me what people say.
