    Sad Feeling guilty about making my first big purchase!

    So I am new to this forum, but nonetheless very excited to be a part of it!

    I can't say i have a collection of handbags yet, but I'm on the road to aquiring one of many future handbags. I have saved for a couple of months and next friday I will be getting the Trevi GM. I was completely and utterly enamored when I first saw online! I do love the Speedy as well, but I feel that the Trevi might suit me better.

    The only thing is that I feel guilty buying it! Even though I have worked and saved up my own money, I still can't help but feel a little guilty. Is it silly for me to do so?? Has anyone else felt like this before?

    I think it's because it's going to be my first LV and it's over two grand.

    Please give me your insights!!

    Thank you sooo much!

    Well firstly congrats on your first LV bag
    Secondly, I understand that you might feel guilty about spending that much money, because lets face it.....it is a lot of money! But you have to remember, that it is your own money, you did save up for this for months, so it's not like it was a split second decision for you, and

    Lastly, remember that a LV bag is an investment. You have chosen well. It's a classic bag that will last you for a long time, and if you look after it and decide to re sell it, you will get a good portion of your money back.

    Your guilt will disappear as soon as you receive her.

    Congrats again.

    Youve worked hard and saved for months to get the bag. I think it's natural to feel a lil nervous about dropping 2k down for a bag. 2k isnt chump change!!!

    After you purchase the bag and actually start to use it the guilt will ware off. I went through the same thing when I spent $1700 on a YSL Muse but after I got it and realized how much I loved it the price didn't really matter. If you saved your money then go for it! And it's true LV bags are classic and you can always sell it a few years down the line and still make good money off it. Good luck!

    @ VivaLaJuicy ....we only do live once! I always say that to myself when I shop and splurge. I feel a lot better now

    @mirna....yes LV does retain its value! I don't I'll ever want to sell my Trevi though...i'm infatuated! What a great feeling!

    @THE-GUY...I never thought I'd spend $2,200 on a handbag. But then again, this is isn't just ANY handbag...it's a Louis!

    @marilena....thank you!! I look forward to being a part of this forum. What a great page I stumbled across! LOL my guilt will melt away once I have her in my arms

    @sisa.......Thank you for the words of encouragement!!

    i think its natural to feel this way when spending so much money on a handbag.
    but you have worked hard and saved for it so why not spend your hard earned cash on somthing that will make you happy?
    as the others said you only live once and its only money... happiness is worth a lot more :)
    Lots of Love and Kisses
    xoxo

    I am looking to buy a new Juicy handbag, PM me if you are selling!

    I think it's good that you are having these feelings before you are buying it instead of after. That is my problem...I always have guilt and remorse after because I do not think it through ahead of time. It sounds like you have given it a lot of thought, so I think you will be pleased with it. Go for it!

    When I bought my first LV I felt the same way. Granted, the first one I purchased myself was a pre-loved bag and it was only $170, but that was the first time I spent that much on a bag. My biggest purchase was my Watercolor Speedy, and I felt unsure about spending that much money, because like marilena said, it's A LOT. Once you buy it though, you'll be so excited that you have it, and your eyes will light up every time you see it.

    I agree with everyone - it's YOUR money. You saved, you waited, you're ready to purchase!

    What is this "guilt" you all speak of?

    Feeling guilty as in it's a lot of money and I could do other things with it. like take a trip to Bora Bora lol.

    but i'd rather have the bag! a trip only lasts a while, and a bag will be forever :)

    Don't feel guilty, enjoy it. I think the sooner you get it, the longer you will have to enjoy it.
